Where do I go to see Ryan and Jeff driving home?

Posted by noby_guy

@GenocidalKitten: Follow Jeff or Ryan on twitter, they'll tweet the stream when it begins.

I really appreciated Jeff's Mr Show reference in the first 5 minutes.

Posted by GenocidalKitten

@noby_guy: Okay, thanks for the info, I suppose I'll set up a twitter account.

If you want to see what a watch battery does to your body, put one into a hot dog, pour some water on it and let it sit for a couple of hours.

I still use 90% of the software they talked about

oh come on guys, don't say the dust's art looks fantastic or whatever across the board; furry shit is silly and who the fuck cares, but the game just has a really bad (in my opinion) look to it (specifically around the eyes). Yes, it's one dude, but I don't see how that matters. That's not why I don't want to play it (I don't really like metroidvania games in general), but still.

@Animasta: One person's opinion is one person's opinion. The Bombcast (and myself) all think it looks fantastic, if you don't agree that's your opinion. Doesn't mean the game deserves to be panned by the toilet of the Internet the way it has been around here.

I'm really bad at games and Darksiders on Apocalyptic wasn't tough at all. I died to a couple of the enemy gauntlets in the last dungeon but that was kinda it...I don't know. Is Brad crazy there or am I good at that game?

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

Yeah it's not any kind of furry thing, it's a mixture of ugliness, unpleasant non-perspective backdrops and general uncanny valley stuff.

Anyway, pointless debating personal tastes.

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.

Someone punch me i totally forgot that today was Tuesday AKA Bombcastday o_O

Thank you for touching on that entire "OMG FURRIES" bullshit eruption. You covered everything that was pissing me off, and settled the score once and for all. Rock on, Bomb Squad.

Posted by MrKlorox

Wait a minute. Are there actually people who think it's okay to pronounce "warez" as "Juarez"? I had a friend that did that, but he also pronounced Mahjong as "Mah-Hong" and Arch as "ark", so he's excused.

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.

The "Dinobot problem" has been resolved like, 3 or 4 times. And since the marvel comics day.

@Joeku: Apart from some of the challenges where you need to kill X in a certain amount of time in a certain way, etc, I found Apocalyptic harder, but wouldn't in any way call it brutal. That was without the armor on NG+, too.

FYI: I don't think I'm anything special. I've seen a lot of people say they thought Apoc was a little easy.

Posted by ModernMoriarty

Now that Patrick's back, they're actually talking about video games - for the *majority* of the podcast!

Praise be! The guy's aces in my book.

Posted by Nottle

I thought this was funny, they talk about how people being turned off of Dust because of it's art style is dumb, but then they talked about writing off Darksiders because of the 90's bullshit spawn art.

Ohhh hypocrisy.

Posted by FierceDeity

Listening to them talk about the furry controversy surrounding Dust was cringe-worthy:

1. The "ginger hate" thing as something commonly seen on the internet was inspired by South Park.

2. Suggesting that people who dislike furry art are homophobic is ridiculous

3. How does being a white male specifically lend oneself to hating furries?

Posted by LegendaryChopChop

If you guys don't like Patrick or how he is on the Bombcast, go take a listen to EIGHT-FOUR PLAY and realize how good we have it with the team all together. Welcome back, Patrick. Good to hear you on the show again.

(I was once a Patrick basher, but after well over a year here, he has earned his abilities to be a member of the team. He keeps up, and he's a good glimpse of the future of Giant Bomb.)

Posted by Mars_Cleric

Are people still hating on Patrick?

come on guys, grow up

Edited by sunsetstreek

And the Dust controversy rages on!

I do think it was a great game though.

And yeah, it's great to have Patrick back.

Re: Dust - It was Fidget that was a little eyebrow-raising for me. Very specifically Fidget. I don't necessarily agree with completely trashing a game over a small element that I find mildly off-putting, but I can at least see where the argument came from. This binary "well, you don't like this one thing with talking animals, you're not allowed to like this other talking animal stuff" defense is ridiculous, as if there's no nuance in how people feel about things. Don't support those debate tactics, Brad! Maybe pick one cool-headed-sounding guy with an opposing viewpoint and have a little back and forth with him. I don't want to be lumped in with a bunch of raging assholes. Hey, this goes for everybody! It doesn't have to be this way. Maybe with a little work, we can all just... love one another. I love you, Brad. I love you.

@SpunkyHePanda: My hatred of you is as passionate as a thousand suns good sir.

...but yeah, I get being turned off by a few designs, I just think it's a shame to skip the game for it, but that's not my business, it's when people become assholes about it that it becomes an issue to me...on both sides.
