The Chamberlin and Mellotron 1960s "samplers" were basically people being nostalgic/wanting the sound of the 1940s.

As much as I love the Bombcast and the crew, what I take issue with is sometimes this overwhelming feeling that if you don't agree with the guys then your opinion is obviously wrong.

Yeah I find that frustrating at times too. Everyone who agrees with them is a smart, level-headed, productive member of society who thinks long and deep before offering up their balanced and open-minded opinion. Anyone who disagrees is generic, reactionary, internet scum. The funny thing is, the binary single-mindedness and aggression with which they often make these sorts of statements usually sounds (to me) just like the angry, knee-jerking that they are condemning.

Just listening to this bombcast now and quoting this instead of writing my own reply because it encapsulates my thoughts on this whole thing perfectly.

Also, PSA: 01:18:00 to 01:30:00 is the Dust nonsense you'll want to skip.

Gaikai ALREADY works really well for me. I actually won a race in NFS: The Run. I might not play Street Fighter on it, but if it's good enough for a racing game, it's good enough for just about anything else.

The Dust argument was painful to listen to. There is a difference between furries and Disney...

Brad plays Dust with one hand...

I think the case they make for the "furries" hate Dust has been getting was a good one.

People choosing to hate a game they haven't played, or read up on, solely because they've attached the term "furries" it is kinda fucked up.

@ShadowKing7: Yeah. I don't usually go back and listen to old podcasts, but I had to come back to hear this one more time.

I know this is a discussion from like a million years ago, but I just had to comment because I thought it was so on point. I also just wanted to add that the guys obviously aren't infalible, and anyone who would think so probably doesn't know what that word means, but I think the best point made in the above comment is on how they voice some of their opinions. Even if their arguments or opinions are reasonable, sometimes they voice them in the exact internet-forum-esque way they constantly condem. There are even times where I hear the guys say something like, "Blank sucks," for no other reason than they simply think that way. I"m always disappointed when I hear something like that.

Obviously, no one is perfect, and everyone gets pissed about some comments on the internet from time to time, but the key to not making yourself look like a fool is to just calm down and voice your opinion in a way that is reasonable rather then heated and reactionary.

The last thing I'll say is that I wish some of the guys were more comfortable disagreeing with the others. Sometimes I feel like a certain side of an argument is just crushed even though there's someone there disagreeing with the majority.

I for one don't want to play Dust because the art style looks like garbage. They can yiff away for all I care.

Do come out of the furry closet. It will be a great relief for you!

I have been to Anthrocon and danced with furries! Ha.

Hey, if you like the game that's great. I'm not judging anyone for digging it or the art style, I just really find it visually displeasing and don't want to play it. But furries are awesome, I got no problem with them at all.

Clearly art styles for games are everything in a video game despite Dust being incredible. Go miss out on one of the best games this year because of your own stubbornness.

yes because he can only have one reason for not wanting to play a game.

Late to the party, but having a reason to not like something. Can still be a shitty reason
