Man this is nuts. Old theme shenanigans.

What was that 64 rooms game they talked about 30 minutes in? I couldn't fully understand the name, it was like Honk or Onk or something?

Is Ryan even part of GB anymore? He seems to be away most of the time.

I love Johnny V. That was the best ending to the podcast ever. I love how he just busts into a story about Taco Bell.

I thought they were avoiding spoilers . :/

The game never tells you. And there's no way to figure it out on your own. This is not a spoiler.

Shouldn't in be "Inactivision" and not "Unactivision"? Just saying.

Great podcast guys!

The sound isn't great this time :(

Why does 'port' imply anything negative about the game? That's the first time I heard anyone say something like this.

ANKH: 64 Rooms: An Adventure in the Metareal World

And no, there is no relation to the 1998 game Ankh: The Tales of Mystery, nor the Ankh franchise that was supposedly a reboot/followup to Tale of Mystery.

Actually, the C64 game doesn't even appear to have a page here so... someone get on that.

Give Ryan a break, he's busy retrieving ancient religious artifacts from tombs, keeping them out of Nazi hands.

I think the dude who does the sudo-freestyle rap at the beginning of Trials Evo is Brandon DiCamillo of Jackass fame, since he does some of the in game grunts and such.

Yep, I think it's him too. Like you said he did a lot of the Trials HD stuff. Definitely sounds like him and he has loads of freestyles on YouTube from his CKY days which have similar flow.

Patrick often states quite controversial opinions on what is considered the status quo.

People don't want to be reminded that the game was developed for an entirely different platform. That implies the game is not optimized, thus an inferior version.

Maybe you don't put that into to the word "port". But enough people do so it's hardly a controversial opinion.

(What's up with nitpicking every word Patrick says? It's not like the rest of the crew's every statement is completely flawless.)

Is it me, or does Jeff keep the gang on task better than Ryan? They were into "Whatcha playin'?" at record time. Podcast is about an hour shorter, too.

Oh god Brad stop saying meta game. It doesn't mean what you think it means.

Vinny is absolutely flawless, like a beuatiful Italian diamond.

Holy crap, $25 power bill??? I live in Florida and during the summer (and this is keeping the temperature in the house close to 80, running the AC as little as possible), the power bill is regularly over $300. :(

Posted by MisterMouse

The Platinum Medals portion was CLASSIC Bombcast! Great Stuff.

Posted by mrfluke

@MayorFeedback: bro i live in florida, and we run the ac as little as possible and our bill is around 400-600 :((((

maybe you should invest in some led bulbs and replace your bulbs with those. because now that i put those, my bill cut in half

Yeah, we're all energy efficient bulbs around the house, those helped a lot when we first got them. But we bought that Nest thermostat a couple months ago and that thing rules and is already making a big difference.

Don't think I'm going to be playing more Fez, just not in the mood to stare at a symbol for several hours. Haven't had that moment that everyone else seems to have had where it all makes sense.

Posted by CornishRocker

Loving the second season theme on this, that was a great throwback. Awesome.

@ky326: That is NOT a mere taco, that is CHEESY GORDITA CRUNCH, you ruffian! Get it right! Cheesy gordita crunch deserves better!

Posted by KCee

The Fez spoiler was really uncool.

Might not be a big deal to some people, but it really bummed me out as I have been really careful avoiding any spoilers so far. Discovering that for myself would have been amazing, those moments are what makes this game for me.

Man it bugs me when brad talks about Trials, he's not good at the game.

Jeff does a great job filling in as host, but I prefer as much rambling as possible. Any and all discussion of novelty food items is a bonus for me.

Edited by Terranova

in regards to the Witcher 2 it wasn't the whole game again to download the update to enhance edition was 10GB in size due to the extra content cut scenes etc all versions on the PC are that size if it were the full game it would be 20+GB to download.

Starcraft talk always goes way over my head. :P

Love when Jeff hosts.

You can tell when the theme music starts playing because he usually plays the wrong one.

I agree, but as much as I love when Jeff hosts, he doesn't have that organization that Ryan does - though, let's be honest, perhaps it's because it's on short notice. But it's a nice shake-up to the normal format of the show, and I'm always happy to see him host.

But you never would have. They never give ANY clues that you can fly in the actual game.

"Not to be too grim..."

Yeah, I have friends who recently had a kid and I started rambling about brain development while holding their child. It got weird.

Posted by handlas

Dunno what you guys are talking about with Prototype 2. I rarely watch TV and I've seen that commercial on TV so many times it's annoying. That live action trailer of the dood falling off the building and the Johny Cash song. The commercial kinda sux tbh.

What's your definition, pray tell? Because I'm using it consistently with the way the entire StarCraft community uses it.

You might want to do an energy analysis on your house. I also live in Florida and we run the AC constantly and our bill never really exceeds $400.

man that fez spoiler came from nowere. guess im gonna put it on ice now till i forget about it :/

Posted by ThePickle

Fez discussion: Alright, now I know why people say Patrick and Brad spoil shit.

Posted by Brad

It's not a spoiler, people. The game doesn't even tell you how to do it, and it doesn't work very well. It seems like a debug feature they just didn't bother to remove. You may now carry on.

 THATS THE CRAZY PART THOUGH
 
Its that point where I truly realized the indie platformer thing is just a front. Giving you an option that allows you to circumvent the platforming after you dig that deep seems like a very deliberate choice to me.

Not to mention Jeff said it in last weeks bombcast... how is it suddenly a spoiler when Patrick says it but not Jeff? People love to hate, it's insane.
