Another thing that made customs so great were the huge amounts of bespoke models for different unit types and factions. Game was loving huge.

And you could modify some stuff about the units too so if you wanted to make a gigantic orc for a boss unit or something then you could do it easily.

Quoting a post of mine from last year:

Thirsty Dog posted:

Daft Souls goes the other direction entirely. They've settled on a more even tone in the last six months, but they're very much all about positivity and talking about games they really love. Unfortunately, this often translates into bitterness over the fact that other people don't necessarily like these games. The Destiny chat is usually repetitive at the best of times, but by Christ is it made so much worse by the sulky way in which they talk about fan reactions to games. This bleeds over into so much stuff now; I can't remember the last episode where they didn't whine about players or fans of a series. It comes across as massively insecure and a little immature.

So Daft Souls dialed this up to 11 in the latest episode and I just can't be arsed any more. Mining the rich seam of humour that is bleating about the "PC master race" crowd for 20 minutes was audio hell. Maybe as a one-off, or if it was, y'know, funny or interesting, but they spend so long sneering at people and just whining at faceless caricatures that I just can't be bothered with the podcast any more.

Ah well. At least PC Gamer UK has started up again, although the sound levels are all over the shop and it's not yet a C&C-standard podcast.

I don't know if this was the same episode of Daft Souls but the one where they were complaining about people with huge playtime logged on games leaving negative reviews drove me up the wall. You can play a game to kill time, I've dropped loads of time into silly games that I don't really like for all sorts of reasons. And the flipside is if a review only has like an hour and a half played of Skyrim, how do they know it's bad?

I think that was just that one guest they had on though. But yeah Daft Souls is never really on point for me like C&C is usually. I haven't checked out the new PCG cast yet. How is that one?

Thirsty Dog
May 31, 2007



Yeah same episode. It degenerates from there.

PCG is currently a little too dry for my tastes. It's interesting but right now it sounds like a bunch of guys doing a podcast because everyone else is, and I don't think they've found their niche yet. It's not terrible aside from the sound level issues they've had.

Not listened to the latest episode but the previous one they recorded while a load of drilling was going on. Seriously guys, postpone recording if that happens.

So if you don't back Duckfeed's stuff on Patreon, now might be a good time to reconsider:

quote:

NEW TIERS, NEW SHOWS
This is an important day for the network. We've decided to pitch some new shows to you, and add new Milestone Goals to our Patreon campaign. Here's the rundown of the new stuff.

$3,000 per month: Monster in My Podcast. Gary and Kole will do a thrice-weekly short form podcast churning through the entirety of the Dungeons and Dragons 2nd Edition Monster Manuals.
$3,500 per month: Untitled X-Men Project. Gary Butterfield and Jeremy Greer will do a loving and comedic takedown of the X-Men and the ridiculous X-Men animated television series from the 90's.
$4,000 per month: Radio Free Midworld. Kole and a rotating cast of community members will do a chapter-by-chapter book club of the Dark Tower series by Stephen King.
$4,500 per month: Let's Talk About the Passion. Gary and Kole will do an album-by-album analysis show of the total R.E.M. discography, including notable live performances and soundtracks.
$8,000 per month: The Crystal Chronicles. This is a big one! Would you be excited to hear Gary and Kole do a Bonfireside Chat-esque podcast about the entire Final Fantasy series? Then help us get to this goal.
$10,000 per month: Living Off of This. This is a rough estimate, but this is the amount of money we'd need to pull in from our Patreon, per month, in order for Gary and Kole to quit their jobs and start podcasting full-time.

Man, I'm not even a little bit interested in any of that except for maybe the Final Fantasy show. I wasn't really interested in the existing duckfeed patreon perks except for the premium episodes so I just picked those up when they hit the store but if anything I'm even less likely to jump on board now.

I hope I'm in the minority though, it'd be really cool if this resulted in them gaining a big chunk of patrons.

I mean I'll listen to Gary and Kole discuss anything except Undertale, so I'll probably listen to the first two if they get made. They sound a lot better if I think of them as bonus Abject Suffering episodes. A Stephen King book club and an in depth analysis of REM is... a hard sell.

For about five seconds I thought this said "R. Kelly discography" and it was the most magical five seconds I've had in quite some time.

Also I don't know if this is the new norm because I don't listen to every WOFF, but the intro music used for the Portal episode was great and should be the mainstay going forward, also re-make the outro in that same style

I'd definitely enjoy the Crystal Chronicles. Especially if you actually cover Crystal Chronicles, that game has some interesting design decisions with the GBA link cable multiplayer, a pretty interesting story in the background and some amazing music (although that's most of the series). I like a lot of what duckfeed puts out so i'd definitely give the new shows a listen.

Honestly a WOFF specifically for Final Fantasy would probably be perfect for my weird one-degree-removed relationship with that series so I'd be pretty happy to see that happen, but all of those pitches sound pretty appealing to me (Steven King is the one thing on that list I have no feelings towards but I could see enjoying that show anyway). I'm not in a position to pitch in right now but I'll be happy to throw in a few bucks a month when I can 'cause you guys do good work and you deserve it.

Speaking of FF related stuff, I really want Kole and Gary to do FF9 and I was surprised to see that it just got a Steam release.

FF9 is the only real Final Fantasy game that I really latched onto. I'm blaming it on Chocobo Hot 'N Cold and the Tetra Battle or whatever the card game was.

Just a couple of notes:

The X-men show is called Days of Future Cast.

The final fantasy show would cover spin offs. I've planned it out and it's years worth of stuff. Very, very comprehensive. It wouldn't be like a BSC season per game, but each game would get multiple episodes. We'd be breaking it up roughly by chronology, so, NES era and contemporary spin offs, SNES era, etc.

Also to clarify: I would never shame anyone who can't jump on board. We appreciate the support and want to make this be more of our life and, sadly, money is the way to do that. If you can't jump on board, that's OK too.

(Triple triad rules, tetra battle drools).
