Not surprising at all. Almost nothing's been shown.

I remember being blown away that Star Fox 64 had voice acting.

I do seem to remember a LOT of it in the Psone/N64 era. Unless it was a final fantasy game. They were already 4 discs without any VA. One could argue that was for the best.

Nah, not for me.

I actively dislike all the food talk.

Except when we learn about some insane Dan food story. Like egg shells or cheese dog shoebox.

Using the blood to bullets button (up on D-pad) puts you in a state where you can still regain health by attacking. Find a wheelchair dude, hit up on the D-pad, R2 attack and have most of your health back and 5 free bullets.

Cheese 2nd boss strat for anyone having trouble:

Use the axe for the first 2 phases. Extend it with L1. Use the first set of tombstones in the arena as cover. Basically dance around them keeping the boss on one side and you on the other. His close-range attacks and his blunderbuss shots will be absorbed by the stones. Use the charge up R2 attack. It's a big front conal 2-step swipe, the 2nd the swipes will knock him down--and even out of animations. Keep circling around the stones and hitting him with the R2.

This won't work for the final form as he just smashes the tombstones. But you can do 2 stun-visceral attack combos and finish the fight.

... so I've missed the first boss somehow and beat the 2nd boss already? The graveyard boss. Well now I need to find out where the first boss is! It feels like the game is super linear up so far so I have no idea how I could skip a boss fight.

Also, I cheesed the crap out of that boss. Getting him stuck on geometry so I could whip him from a distance was fun.

I missed the first boss too. I'm surprised you consider it linear. I always felt like there were too many sprawling directions to go in.

Kids today without your complaints about tight controls and frame rates.

If you're even asking this question, you're probably not going to like it. You'll probably hate it even more because everyone else likes it so much. Don't waste your time on experiences that you're not enjoying.

According to Amazon.fr, the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 are also making their way to PC.

I laughed out loud for real.

Yeah this seems highly unlikely.

I love Dan and Danny. But advice-style podcasts are VERY difficult. I'm a little leery about the podcast so far, but I'll definitely check out the Samantha episode because I just love hearing from her.

But ultimately, it doesn't matter what I think of it! I'm glad enough that other people are liking it. And Dan's commitment to constantly producing stuff is just flat-out commendable.
