Was really hoping when it was asked where Windows 9 was someone would say it didn't exist because Windows 7 ate 9.

Fun cast.

Yeah, where is the premium version with no ads?

While it's hardly the end of the world having to get the show from the normal feed I have to add my voice of displeasure over this issue. It certainly seems backwards. The priority should always be the premium version, we are after all paying for the content.

There's no ads on this Bombcast, so no premium version. Ask Brad on Twitter if he can upload a premium version even when there's no ads on an episode, if you only subscribe to the premium feed or something like that.

I understand this show has no ad's, the priority should be the premium feed however. It should have obviously been uploaded to the premium feed because why on Earth would you sub to both if you were a paying member?

I only subscribe to the non-premium since the ad reads are almost always great content. Agree that it is an odd oversight for the premium feed to not be updated though.

Brad is right about college kids in Kansas drinking margaritas. We would drink margaritas all the time, in addition to beer and other drinks.

Also, Nacho Cheese Doritos are way better than Cool Ranch.

You guys should try to have a guest on the podcast at least once a month, Tim added a lot of life to an already great podcast and it was really refreshing to hear a new voice even if only for a few minutes. It spiced things up. Obviously you can't arrange for a big personality like Tim all the time, and this was a happy accident or sorts, but just throwing someone new into the mix is an interesting change.

That Tim ain't all that.

@teddie: Things happened though, although on a smaller scale. You help a king, you fight some mythic beasts, you lead the charge on a castle. It's no Tolkien but there is a weird low key storyline happening as you try to kill the dragon.

Damn, thought i had some free hours this week, guess i'm playing Tera later.

Posted by Teddie

@humanity: "Low-key" is a better term for it than "nothing", sure. What I meant was that stuff is predictable, dull and uninspired, so it's extra surprising when this big twist comes up. You're not expecting a twist because the rote nature of the story so far makes it impossible to see that sort of thing coming.

And despite that stuff coming completely out of left field, it didn't make me spit and say "nope, not buying it", and that's probably aided by the fact they didn't spend a bunch of time on worldbuilding and rules for that universe (not to say there was none of that, either).

Oh yes! The last 30 minutes of the story is pretty good. I didn't experience it myself, but I watched my way through the rest of the game after I couldn't force myself to finish it, out of some bizarre need to do my "due diligence" or some nonsense, and that there's a twist. It made me wish they had made any attempt to make the rest of the game's story interesting in, you know, the part where you actually play through it.

This is by no means meant to excuse the lack of anything interesting going on narrative-wise for 90% of the game's runtime, but that ending is made at least ten times more mind-shattering because nothing happened until then.

Huh. That's an interesting point. I bet you're right.

Just wanted to correct something. Elder Scrolls Online is not going Free-to-Play, it is going Buy-to-Play. You will still need to buy the base game in order to play. Basically the one major change is that the monthly fee will become optional instead of required. So generally the same business model as say Guild Wars, or The Secret World. (Or if you are consoles only think Destiny and Titanfall.)

I love how all the marketing speak has now gone full circle, and we're back where we started. "Buy-to-Play".

Still no premium cast on the feed? At least I don't see it.

@polishhill: if anyone said it it would have been drew and no one would have noticed lol

I rented Majora's Mask once and I got stuck and didn't know where to go pretty quickly. Then I just sorta stopped playing.

Posted by NiallThaker

add this to the premium feed maybe??

Posted by Atomic_Olive

I know DANswers, that the show Dan is doing with Danny, is meant to be a spin on MANswers but any time he brings it up I have to take a minute and think, "What do they know about dancing to share in a podcast?" Regardless of how much dancing is involved with the podcast I'm looking forward to it.

lots of love from Texas guys! see you next year!

WhatABurger love and Robot Jox! this place is perfect!!!

@teddie: It is a rather swift turn around but it makes sense in just enough ways for it to seem really great.

Dark Arisen is also really good although I didn't beat that as other games came out at the time and Dragons Dogma does require quite a time investment.

Posted by enragedstump

ESO is not going to be free to play. Its just dropping the subscription. Still need to buy the box.

Whataburger is greatness! To bad you guys didn't enjoy some tried and true Texas BBQ... would've been worth your drive :)

Also I will NOT have this Dragons Dogma hate Brad! It's an amazing game with some of the best RPG combat I've seen in years. Not to mention glorious static enemy levels!

Everyone, go play Dragons Dogma right now, stop listening to the bombast, don't walk, run to your nearest retailer and buy 10 copies of the game, it's awesome.

Weird. I think this one doesn't have ads anyway, so they didn't put it on the Premium feed. Which is weirdly inconvenient, because my podcast app only points at the premium, so I had to download this as a sound file.

I guess we should ask for duplication on free Bombcasts to prevent that, even if it's the exact same file?

I would love a Zelda play through video series.

There are some boring CMS reasons why the podcast isn't up on both feeds at the moment, stay tuned.

This is the case with most Zelda games for me, got both stuck in LBW and Ocarina.

Edited by BisonHero

@red_piano: Every complaint that Jeff and Brad have about Majora's Mask and its time limit make them sound like lazy children. Like, if you actually spend a few minutes to understand the time mechanic, it's not that hard to understand and you aren't REALLY under this constant time pressure because the time limit is actually super long.

But yes, the game should be way more up front about how to slow down time, because you should be playing like, the entire game with time slowed down. It's unfortunate that random scarecrow is the only person who tells you how to manipulate the song of time.

Then again, I think Jeff dismisses games a lot if he doesn't understand their mechanics within the first few minutes.

Especially now that Bombin's done, I've really been hoping for more regular guests. Not anything forced like a guy promoting a game who doesn't care, but it would be cool to try bringing on people like Kevin/Mary/Alexa/Peter to change things up and get different viewpoints out there.

I know showing up for a 2+ hour podcast is a lot to ask and probably tough to schedule, but since this group is still finding its chemistry I think it would help a ton.

Posted by Duluoz

Majora's Mask was actually my first Zelda game. Absolutely loved it, and is by far my favourite, though I do like the other ones I've played.

It was the first game I played where it felt like I was participating in a true world, not just a stage of cardboard cut outs. The characters actually went places and wanted things and acted of their own accord. It was mind boggling just how tightly choreographed and creatively constructed it was. The world design just spectacular. I played Ocarina about a month afterwards and, while I liked it well enough, it felt so lifeless in comparison.

At the end of the emails section, I wanted Brad to yell, "...and now SPORTS!"

Posted by heatDrive88

You know, a lot of people get up in arms about Dan and what he eats - but frankly that's not what bothers me. People can eat whatever they want, it's their preference. I'm totally okay with that.

But you know what really gets me? It's the fact that Dan doesn't respect his food and where it came from. His disrespect for the living animal that gave its life to become just "meat" to him is fucking frustrating. "Meat" comes from a living, breathing animal, even if it was a dumb cow that does nothing but graze pastures.

I'm not saying be a vegan or whatever hippy bullshit, and I know this is a phenomenon that is far more widespread than just one person with a microphone (especially in North America), but still. It's fucking sad. But really now, have some fucking empathy.

Edited by Red_Piano

@bisonhero: Well to be fair Brad was surprised to hear about it, Jeff just says the game is shit outright. Everyone is entitled to their opinions, I just think Jeff sometimes drags on about things and it gets repetitive, we know he doesn't like Yoshi's island and Majora's mask, that doesn't mean he needs to derail every conversation around those games with his hatred for them.

The inventory system is key to the original Resident Evil, so as to disallow you from being able to carry too many supplies as ammo can stack indefinitely. Also, taking the knife with you is a rookie mistake; put that shit in the item box where it belongs.

You also don't need to constantly be carrying ink ribbons because item boxes and typewriters go hand in hand. Man, hearing Dan's complaints just confirms my fears that skipping the QL was a good idea. Hell, hearing the staff talk about Resident Evil in general is often such a frustrating affair and makes the fact that all forum discussion is completely ignored all the more evident.

That opening is thumpin'. I have to turn my stereo down through the intro. Too much bomb.

@kasaioni: Not philosophy if it can be used to make testable predictions, which it can (maybe, we're working on it)

Posted by Xshinobi

ESO isn't going f2. You still have to buy the box. It is more like Guild Wars. This is the best thing that could have happened to this game. I would much rather pay for the box and expansions than pay a sub.

Posted by nickux

It kinda bums me out how proud Dan seems about earning a film studies degree without actually learning anything. I'm glad the dude is happy and all but I would feel like a fraud with that kind of attitude in life.
