I picked up a PS4 at launch; but I'm mainly a PC guy. Here are my feelings.

I feel that the PS4 was a good investment; but I don't often use it for games other than local multiplayer (niddhogg, puyo puyo tetris, et cetera). It has become a way to watch Netflix, Plex, Crunchyroll, et cetera on our couch with the possibility for games as well. When games I'm excited for like Uncharted 4 come out, then I'll definitely play the exclusives there; but, as mentioned in the header, I mainly use PC to play my games.

As for the Xbone - it seems fine; but I am personally not interested in any of the exclusives (sunset overdrive looks okay, and forza is a cool series; but still, not going to drop 400 bucks on another console for those). We also don't have cable, so a lot of the TV functionality would go unused. The kinect seems interesting, but it's not really something I'm overly interested in. I feel like Microsoft has done a lot to get back into the console game; but I can't justify having two systems that I won't be using too often.

The WiiU seems great - I will probably pick one of those up in the near future.

Here is a link to the Rooster Teeth article (site is down at the time of posting).

Though my relationship with Rooster Teeth has been inconsistent over the last few years, I'm really sad to see Monty pass. He was a huge asset to the team there, and created some really fantastic works. I hope all the best for his family <3

2014 was similar for me. I had watched a lot of anime in years past, but for the 5 or 6 years prior to '14, I had completely fallen off.

WIthin the past year, I've watched about 35 full seasons + several movies. I'm glad to see we have some in common (Higurashi, Madoka, Steins;Gate, Attack on Titan, Paprika, et cetera) =)

Anyways, I'll refrain from typing up a big ol' rambling "anime is rad" post, and instead say "high five, duder."

DTP's Z2 for me. I didn't listen to a ton of metal this year, but that album was spectacular. "Earth" is a really fantastic song from that album.

Completely dependent on what you want to study =) If you're looking for a post-secondary school, do some research into schools & teachers you'd really want to study with. Maybe you'll end up finding that one of the most interesting programs is actually in Japan or Canada or something ^^

"People are reporting improvements across the board, which is great, but we’re not backing down until we finish this fight."

Groooaaaannnnnnn

The sentiment of that letter is reasonable, though. I do have a fair amount of hope that they will be able to fix the issues =)

Hey guys,

I've been listening to older bombcasts recently, and got to the episode(s) where they were talking about the CAH GB Expansion. I remember submitting card ideas for that years ago, but am unsure if there have ever been any other updates about it.

I mean... Obviously Ryan was a huge part of the idea, and I'm sure he was one of the original people to talk it over with Max, so his passing is a huge factor in all of this; but I'm wondering if it is still something that they plan on releasing.

Thanks a bunch =)

I honestly can't wait for Dragon Age. The shitstorm will be great. No one left at Bioware has the ability to string an interesting sentence together, never mind a coherent story. The sentiment around reviewers not having the ability to properly critique games has been building for a while prior to GamerGate but a side effect of GG has been this sentiment has intensified. There's gonna be some whiplash when it gets its guaranteed spot on the 3 point scale.

People talked a lot about the downgrade of W_D but everything put out about DA:I has looked terrible. Animation, story, those E3 promotional pictures and ofc, gameplay. I feel like I wasted time even just watching it. There's a reason a 90's theme song goes so well with it http://a.pomf.se/mknflb.webm

My cousin is one of the lead editors for DA:I. I'll let him know you said that, I'm sure he'll love to know that "No one left at Bioware has the ability to string an interesting sentence together, never mind a coherent story."

I would love to have Jason on the podcast permanently! The 5-person dynamic was really cool back when it was Jeff, Ryan, Vinny, Brad & Patrick. I'd love to have that with Jeff, Brad, Drew, Dan, and Jason =)
