I agree with Jeff about a replacement for the Nintendo release lists. If you guys can come up with something appropriate to fill that void, it might turn out to be really cool and as entertaining as the insane marketing stuff was.

Dead Space, scary? Psssh. Play Amnesia. True horror. And no monster closets. Actually monsters are in different places on different playthroughs, so you never know what's coming.

Posted by JoeRosa

Jeff you couldn't of explained Dc any better. I really want to see it in writing. My friend keep trying to get me to play but the beta was enough for me.

Posted by SunKing

Funny that Jeff mentioned that DCO felt like it was a bad PC port on console. I've heard PC players saying that it feels like a bad console port. Looks like nobody's happy.

Final Fantasy XIII sold more than six million copies. Those are great sales figures!

Yay? Never listened to a Bombcast. Should I? Eh, why not? Not like I have anything better to do, being unemployed and all.

Edited by Terranova

Yeah DCU is too console for the PC version  and too PC for the PS3 version, I have played the PC version and it's not all that fun,  i can see the PC version going F2P sooner rather than later

Posted by skjeggen

FIRST!?!?!?! 
 
oh:(

Posted by AddyMac

Surprised how cynical they were about the Steam/Playstation deal, especially Jeff's defence of Microsoft's closed system. 
 
Although I probably shouldn't be, considering they took Activision's side during the IW affair.

Posted by bodine1231

Completely disagree with Jeff about DCUO. I'm having a frickin blast playing it and the PVP is actually really good! Don't think of DCUO as Wow,think of it as an online version of Crackdown 1 with excellent PVP.

It's an MMO, it was made as such and should be viewed as such, and as a MMO it's as Jeff says, if it were made as you said ie a online Crackdown with PVP elements then fair enough but it's not and certainly not worth paying $15 a month for.

For DCUO

First for the gear, you can equip any style you've unlock no matter what is the piece of gear that you have equipped. 

Second it's a good game, I am playing on a wired connection and I have never encountered a 15 seconds delay for things to charge while I am getting bashed so maybe you should get a better connection or try wired if you are wireless. 

For the quest being repetitive, IT'S AN MMO! Have you played WoW? Because I've got my shared fare of kill x animals, get x number of liver (and the worst part is that some of them don't have a liver) and most of the time the storyline are more engaging then WoW's quest (of the old at least). Sure you don't see Batman giving you quest and his face pop up, you think Batman has the time to sit around and give quest to a goofball like you? He is out there fighting and gives you quest by the communicator which is fine, sure I hope to "meet" him one day and it's part of the fun.  

You are also trying to belittle them about the no grinding and 5 minutes later you said you are almost at max level, that was their goal it's not because they are lacking content. They wanted you to experience multiple story and multiple powers/movement/weapons and said that another game was starting at 30 like many MMO. 

I've had this game for 2 days and I can't stop playing it, I went to bed at 1 AM for 2 days because I can't stop. Maybe you don't like it but maybe you aren't the demographic for it either (I am not a DC fanboy, but I like those worlds). 

You say it has clearly been built for the PC and port to the PS3 and I feel the other way around. The PC can't even click the menu either or abilities, it was meant for console and the fighting mechanic would be awful imo on a keyboard and mouse setup so I can see people on PC not liking it but on console with a PS3 controller it's really cool and fluid.  

As for the framerate drop I don't have that many but when I went to look at my friend's house and saw him play on a wireless connection it was chugging a lot. 

This game is not perfect that's for sure but it's very far from the way you are painting it also.

Why is Ryan so dismissive every time Jeff mentions Max Von Sydow?

Posted by Swoxx

No Vinny AND alex as guest? think i might pass this week.  
 
Fucking bring Drew on more often

Posted by Grillbar
@swoxx:

you got a problem with alex or is it that vinny is not on.
Posted by Swoxx
@Grillbar: Both, well mostly that they should use Drew/Dave more often, feels like Alex is always the stand in and while i have nothing against the guy i just don't think he brings anything of interest to the table.
 
Note: I know Drew was recently on but still.

Oh and I have played a lot of PC MMO and I didn't lose my shit on the PS3 version of DCUO, it's fun and addicting. 
 
Of course it's going to be shout there's no public channel like in WoW. 
 
The only thing that bothers me I guess is that the guy who played the game is really down on it and when you talk with him you are like "this doesn't sound like the kind of game that I want to play", but that's because that guy is selling you on his bad experience and appreciation of the game, because it is really not like he is painting it. 
 
But oh well I guess that's what happen when only one person play a game.
Posted by ApolloBob

Well DCUO bored the shit out of me - I nodded at nearly everything Jeff said.

I would like to suggest bringing in a microwave full of metal utensils running on high in front of a microphone as an alternative fill in guest  to Alex.

@Natalia: I still have hope for FF and I also thought it was a joke. :p

No burn intended , I just really like listening to the death cries of a microwave full of metal. I think they have a lot to say , a lot to teach us.

MK talk on GiantBomb always makes me happy.

Yeah totally gave the Nintendo releases short shrift - Ryan Davis flatly intoning "Animal Boxing".  I will be listening to Jeff's podcast immediately after, and possibly exclusively going forward.
 
Tyrants!

Listen through the Bombcast up to the part of where the Nintendo downloadable used to be. Pause. Play Jeff's podcast to completion. Resume Bombcast.

Posted by RubberFactory

I love how Jeff is laughing about how ridiculous a podcast dedicated solely to dsiware and wiiware games would be, then he goes and does just that.

Posted by Hoshnasi

Help me please!  How do I watch the Star Trek TNG marathon!!!!!  Did they stream it?

Posted by RD_21

@ApolloBob     

 

I am not doubting it or saying that Jeff can't have that opinion. I just don't like the fact that he's the only one who played it so all they can say is "that doesn't seem like it's fun" but it's base of his let's use the word biased opinion for lack of a better term that his negative. Just like my opinion is biased torward the appreciation I have of it. 
 
I just don't like also how he is seeing that no one can have any fun with that game and how he is acting like a Simpsons character "eueueueuueue" everytime someone bring the game after that like the game is a joke and a piece of shit. 
 
He doesn't have to like it but he is to categoric about it.

So, when Brad reads a book, does he go right to the last page?

Posted by Zero315

Gonna dispel some of the Alex hate in here by saying I like the guy. It's nice to hear his take on games every once in a while, plus he reminds me a bit of myself. 
 
I agree with what Jeff said about the LBP2 CE, I totally feel good buying it.

As one of the people that paid 50 dollars specifically so that long Bombcasts would be finantially viable, I'm fine with Jeff reading the Nintendo releases.
