Yeah, as a white dude in his 30s, Still Buffering doesn't appeal to me at all. There was a recent segment on This American Life with teenage girls describing their Instagram habits. It was insufferable. Given their lineup, I have to believe I represent a majority of MaxFun's demographic, it'll be interesting to see how it does.

Maybe, they are trying to get a new demographic.

Rose Buddies is treating me pretty right for someone who doesn't watch the Bachelor. I did watch Burning Love so I guess I have enough of the genre's grammar from that. It doesn't hurt that Griffin seems to be the McElroy who doesn't dial it down around his wife.

New Adventure Zone just dropped, also.

So Griffin is also flexing his podcast biceps further

quote:

Here's something I'm very excited to announce: a weekly comedy podcast right here on Polygon from [Nick Robinson] and Griffin McElroy! It's called CoolGames Inc, it's very dumb, and we hope you subscribe on iTunes.

Here's the pitch: each Friday, Griffin and I take your one-line ideas for video games turn one of them into a full-blown, idiotic design doc, all before bringing on a special guest to evaluate our work. It's stupid, but it's a lot of fun, and we think you'll enjoy it.

In our first episode, we explore the harrowing world of Grandma Wants It Al Dente, the world's first SmartGlass-enabled pasta roguelike.

Episode downloading to phone as I type this.

I'm not going to lie to you, there's nothing good about this at all.

I can't help but wonder if the recent flood of new podcasts is the McElroys realizing that Maximum Fun needs them a lot more than they need Max Fun and prematurely getting ready to launch their own network.

With Polygon imploding, I wouldn't be surprised if they'd go into business for themselves at some point.

I know that Polygon hasn't become the big gaming journalism site they probably envisioned but is there more stuff going on behind the scenes that gives cause to the word "imploding"?

They laid off a bunch of writers and pivoted into the same kind of generic "geek culture" site that like half of the internet is full of, but I have no idea how successful they actually are. I thought they were getting plenty of traffic after they made the change but I don't know what that means in terms of profitability since they're still an ad-based site.

This is the best. Is it wrong to have a man crush on Griffin? I've never played DnD and know nothing about it, but drat if I wouldn't smoke a bowl with him and be a try hard.
