On the internet, nobody knows you're a dog.




Chat about Polygon stuff was taking over the McElroy thread so I made a new thread for it. Talk about your Russ opinions, gush about The Polygon Show, whatever. I didn't put this in Games because everyone was afraid of neck-beards rushing in with their opinions on the evils of multiculturalism; don't be one of those people, it's okay for people to like things that you don't etc. etc. I don't really like most non-McElroy Polygon stuff which is why I made this thread but "Please Retweet" is pretty funny. I like that one a lot. Thank you.

This is Polygon-related content so I would highly recommend it.

The Polygon Show is good, here's the RSS feed:

https://go.redirectingat.com/?id=66...385418%3Fmt%3D2

It's a video game podcast, but it's mostly focused on smaller titles (and overwatch heartthrobs). Four women are the main hosts so it's possibly the most neckbeard-free media in the games industry?

Simone's great and all, but her laugh in particular is the best thing in any of the video content that the site produces. McElroys included.

I hated it for a while but something finally clicked and I love it.
The show comes out on my weekend so I listen to it with my morning coffee while I clean my apartment. Her laugh, while majestic, scares my pets.

This shit's about to go off.


I've listened to about 7 episodes of Polygon Show and I'm not really feeling it. I don't play many current games so they're mostly talking about stuff that I know nothing about, with the funny bits being few and far between. I think you have to have at least some kind of baseline knowledge about current releases to be able to get into the show.

I don't like a lot of the games they play but I enjoy watching the Polygon crew play them, and I think that's pretty cool.

The OP made the thread to get Polygon content out of the McElroy thread. He has no actual interest in the content so likely won't be adding anything. And McElory posts have already started here, so we see what a great idea it was.

It took me a bit to come around on Pat, but I really like him now. The Please Retweet where he finally goes insane with Toad noises is one of my favorites.

Griffin and Justin McElroy use character creation engines to create their own precious children.

For older, Griffin McElroy-specific playlists, check out Griffin's Amiibo Corner to see some hard hitting reviews of Nintendo's game augmenting peripherals as well as his Pokemon Y Nuzlocke run:

Since its not on that SEO Play playlist, I'm posting this very important video ranking game dads.

Also you'll all be glad to know if you type Simone de Rochefort into youtube search, the second autocomplete suggestion is polygon. The first is laugh.

I quite enjoy SEO Play because it's fun to see the increasingly weird poo poo Simone is holding up in a glass.

She started out with just drinking wine or whiskey, and then shortly into it they start doing weird poo poo like floating banana slices in it, and before you know it there's an episode where she's just got two whole eggs and no liquid in a drinking glass.

The OP of the thread should really be somebody who gives a poo poo about Polygon and it should probably be in games. In the spirit of being the change you want to see in the world, new thread is here: https://forums.somethingawful.com/showthread.php?threadid=3832472
