Transports.

Distractions.



I saw recently that MyNameIsKaz and Medibot's excellent Skullscast has started updating again. They talk about all sorts of crazy things (including a good deal of Magic the Gathering stuff that I'm not really into - but hey, if you are into that, you'll probably love it), but sometimes they'll have a cast reviewing specific videogames, or shooting the breeze on features of videogame design. There are also plenty of episodes that are just Kaz playing straight man to Medibot's patented brand of highly entertaining warped logic .

e: VVVV yeah, fair enough. There are videogame eps in there, but you may have to go digging for them. And there should be less MtG going forward.

Medibot ended episode 94 with a blood pact to never talk about Magic again so you're pretty safe from that in the future. They don't talk about games that much either and Kaz has very questionable ideas about what constitutes good game design, but if you're looking for creative lying, it's your cast.

Those two are 100% "must listen" guests, but mostly I just skip over the back half most weeks because I've already heard the news on about 3 other shows. It's not a bad show, it just comes out too late for me to want to retread new releases and news. (Similarly: if you've never looked at Heidi's site you oughta do that. She gets great interviews and covers whatever the hell sounds fun.)

Halfway through the latest BFC episode and you've already said that (not really spoilers but just in case) Yhorm is a DS2 giant when he very clearly isn't, and now you've gone on a tangent about how Iudex Grundyr sounds like grundle when his name is actually Iudex Gundyr. To be fair, the former is a deliberate fakeout, but I'm not sure where the latter came from.

Gary and Cole are decent people but they just kinda seem... off about things sometimes. It's hard to explain. Sometimes they just miss the point by a country mile., like they're trying to be so super smart about From Software games and just miss the little things when they want to understand the big picture better than anyone else.
Also dick jokes. Haha dick jokes. Dick jokes are funny and we make sex jokes about men and stuff all the time. :iamafag:

if only there was some way for you to tell them they missed the point or correct their mistakes, some sort of podcast thread they read and post in regularly on this forum, or a feedback form on their website, or some system of electronic mail that would let you write them a letter about it

We spoke about Yhorm as a DS2 giant because that's how he looks in the intro cutscene. We're going to talk about the discrepancy between the models in the appropriate episode.

The Gundyr vs Grundyr thing was a mistake that I made in taking notes, that neither of us caught at the time, which led to what felt like a funny digression.

As for missing the point or dick jokes or just being off, I've got nothing for that.

I will claim a little responsibility as I was having a pretty off day when we recorded. Also, I don't think it's unfair to say that I am a big picture person when it comes to these games either. But yes, we are decent people.

The Gundyr/Grundyr thing doesn't really seem to matter much to me, honestly. It's just a misread or typo and we're working from notes. But if you think that's bad, just wait until you hear me mispronounce Irithyll like a dozen times!

I noticed the Irithyll thing, too, but had forgotten about it when I made the post.

I don't begrudge you for the mistakes, I just thought it was odd because you guys are usually pretty good about getting the facts right, which is why I opened the post by saying you were off your game. I've since listened to the rest and heard you say at the end that you had had a rough time recently and that's a good enough excuse to me.

A podcast about Dark Souls 3 that didn't employ the term "fan service" would completely fail at being a podcast about Dark Souls 3.

Man I really don't envy any podcasters for the sort of "They just sound OFF" comments that get thrown around in threads like these. Like it's understandable that a person may not enjoy a podcast because they don't jive with The Way A Person Talks, but there's little need to post to an internet forum about how you don't enjoy a podcaster because of intangible gut-feelings related to their verbal mannerisms. It's not constructive criticism, it's just kind of reductive and rude.

Basically what I'm saying is that Gary and Kole and perfect angels and that's that.

I agree, I was being a reductive idiot earlier about them with no real good reason. And I do feel bad for acting like an rear end because they're such great people that put a monumental amount of effort and love into their work. Sort of wish there was an anti-sarcasm tag I could use since being on the internet and all everything is kinda tinged with venom.

This 1000%. I really love Dark Souls 3. My love for that also contains the fact that it's pandering to an extreme degree, and really, to no good end.

This crazy rear end quote from a Star Wars game preview illustrates my feelings of DS3.

"Red Fly’s representatives arrived at the meeting point early the next day, only to find LucasArts employees rushing Force Unleashed artwork out of the conference room, and replacing it with other Star Wars artworks, including the placement of Sideshow Collectibles statues of Darth Maul and Darth Talon to the table.

A friendly George Lucas entered the room and was eager to hear the pitch from Red Fly’s creatives. “Before they could finish their spiel, Lucas cut them off, stood up, walked over to the statues, rotated them to be facing the same direction, pushed them together, and said ‘They’re friends!’” adds the source. “He wanted these characters to be friends, and to play off of each other. He talked about the show Burn Notice as a reference point. He likened Darth Maul to Sonny fromThe Godfather, and he likened Darth Talon to Lauren Bacall. He actually did an impersonation of her. It was supposedly the weirdest impersonation of a ’40s actress going, ‘Don’t you know how to whistle? Put your lips together and blow.’”

The problem with the idea of Maul and Talon teaming up for a buddy cop-like experience was that they were separated by over 170 years of Star Wars fiction – as ridiculous of an idea as Frédéric Chopin forming a band with Dave Grohl. When this vast time divide was brought up to Lucas’ attention, he brushed off the notion of it not working, and said that it could instead be a descendant of Darth Maul or a clone of him."
