I'm amazed no one tossed Dan out of the room during the Game of the Year debates awhile ago, he was peak obnoxiousness over RDR2. I didn't have a lot of exposure to him before that and it was pretty annoying.

I'm trying Waypoint for the first time and they've been talking about football for like 20+ minutes with no mention of videogames. I like football but man, this is a gaming podcast right? Reminds me of the GB wrestling digressions.

DON'T DOUBLE DOWN ON YOUR STUPID SHIT JUST CAUSE YOU THINK IT'S FUNNY. YOU MAKE STUPID FUCKING DECISIONS ALL THE TIME THEN DOUBLE DOWN LIKE A PETULANT CHILD. GOD I FUCKING HATE YOU SO MUCH SOMETIMES.

They like to go off on tangents. I donít even like football but Iíll listen to it cause I enjoy when they talk about stuff I donít really care about cause they genuinely get something out of a thing they enjoy. Austin will talk for hours and thatís just something youíre either down for or not. Heís very insightful and I appreciate what that crew brings to games discussions.

I'm currently on Dan's new podcast, and they do address that. He concedes much of his problem with RDR2 might have been being forced to marathon it on a deadline, and he thinks he may have liked it a lot more had he been playing it like a normal person hah.

As mentioned, yeah Waypoint does go on tangents, but the long football thing isn't really normal. Overall I think Waypoint is extremely strong for inclusion and ... for lack of a better word ... wokeness.

I posted my food for USPOL Thanksgiving!




The football digression this week was particularly bad (as a non football-carer); normally it doesn't go on that long. They siloed off even more after the end, even. There was also some baseball stuff this ep but it was at least in discussion of the MLB game.

Their long talk in the questions part about the games writing industry chewing up and spitting people out hit extremely differently when I listened right after the GB news.

Yeah, I think this was a particularly bad-timing to check out Waypoint ... they've been amazing for years, and I do miss voices that have moved on during their run. I think Austin otherwise runs a tight ship, and represents a queer black voice. It's "unfortunate" that Patrick Klepek and Rob Zachny are the other mainstays, but they are awesome people too. The podcast has had a number of fantastic regulars over the years. Gita Jackson is still around but doesn't seem to be on regularly lately (I also really her writing fwiw). I liked Danielle Riendeau a lot on the podcast, but haven't followed up on what she's up to now.

While trying to find any information about the GB departures, I stumbled across controversy that they were sort of implicated in gamer gate poo poo due to being attacked for being all white cis men by someone. Which is what it is, but unfortunately it sounds like fans went nuts on the accuser.

I was a mega Idle Thumbs/VGHD fan and I know I'm quite late to really getting into it, but IMO the closest podcast to those in tone right now is Insert Credit. The lineup consists of game archivist Frank Cifaldi, game dev/sega liker Brandon Sheffield, 3-hour-Doom-review guy Tim Rogers, and game dev/affable host Alex Jaffe. I appreciate how full of weird trivia they all are and they have great chemistry.

Recent episodes have featured guests like Jim Stormdancer of Frog Fractions (who has a podcast called Topic Lords which also rules) and Liz Ryerson.

It was pretty awesome of them to get the gang back for the last episode, definitely a great episode.

Which one is that? I'll give it a shot. I'm determined to have 10-15 podcasts that I cycle in and out of going forward, no point in getting too attached to any of them.

Downloaded the most recent ep with Jim and it's real good. Thanks for the recommendation!

Tim basically quit the podcast a few episodes ago so if you're strictly in it for him, don't bother.

Aw dang, I assumed it was just a break. Was this announced? Maybe I wasn't paying attention. (Edit: AHH, ok, there's a post on their forums about it.) Tim rules but all of the regulars are interesting people so it's still a big rec from me.

I say this as someone who enjoys Tim Rogers and his output, but I really think the podcast works better without him and I've been enjoying the post-Tim episodes a lot. Dude sucks up a lot of oxygen in conversations.

That and he fell into the habit of steering every topic back to twitterchat, which is never interesting to listen to.

Insert Credit with the Tim on break has been finding its footing quite well. It was a pleasant surprise when he was on the 20 year anniversary ep and stuck around.
