So, no TNT this week? I still have last week's to watch, so, fine.

@Phatmac: It is inhumanely impossible! Dude is quality.

You always make ma happy.

One save, no NG+ and if you want to start a new game you have to delete your save? That's fucked. There better be a patch fo more saves.

I'm confused about Patrick's shirt. Texas Forever?
 
EDIT: Someone mentioned Friday Night Lights, which I think must be it. I've heard Patrick mention it a couple times before.

That Nintendo ID stuff is fucking insane. What was Nintendo thinking? That's really the one thing that soured me on the entire system. Poor launch titles are kinda to be expected, especially poorly optimised ports for a new system, but I'm sure we'll get great first party software and better third party stuff with time. I had considered buying one to use the backwards compatibility until there are more proper WiiU titles out there. I never had a Wii, and there are a bunch of interesting games for that system, but if Nintendo won't fix the ID stuff, I'll probably buy a regular Wii instead and pass on this system.

I wonder if Patrick will be a lot more positive on this game due to his love of horror stuff because that game is getting a lot of reviews ranging from shit to meh.

I hope that the Thanksgiving surprise is a membership discount again. My days are running low.

Chris with the white car returns! Sort of, maybe

Yeah. He sometimes gets a turkey from "work" "somehow". Right.

Also, good on Dave for the minor league hockey idea. My roommates and I go to a couple games a year and it's fucking awesome.

Pretty sure that's a deliberate design decision on their part. Wouldn't count on it.

To be fair, I think that, while it is a problem for sure, its a problem for a very small sliver of the Wii U userbase. Reviewers of games need that kind of ID portability, but Regular Joe and his kids, I dont think its that big of a deal.

What's Dave so happy about? There's no donuts left n there he is, smilin away for the whole video. Must be fun to work at GiantBomb. Or maybe this new site design's just really awesome. Or maybe he's excited about this smoked turkey.

My guess, hes not wearing pants.

Sucks that it's Thanksgiving week, was hoping for a PS All-Stars TNT. Maybe next week.

Posted by addictedtopinescent

Is there a bombcast this week then?

Posted by teh_destroyer

I did smile when Dave randomly walked in. Patrik and Brad looked like they were ready to go.

Posted by BlueWolverine

No podcast this week?

Posted by tourgen

my problem with co-opting the rogue-like term is that the people who are doing it don't even really know what it means or use it consistently.

I've heard people use it so broadly that super mario brothers would be a rogue like. Sorry that's bullshit.

My take is that to qualify:

  • 1 game, 1 life, 1 save
  • you die the save is deleted and your progress/level go up on a scoreboard
  • items interact in a fairly deep and sometimes surprising way
  • procedurally generated levels or environments

If it's just 1 or 2 items from the list don't call it a rogue-like. Just say what it is and save everyone the confusion and wasted time.

Spelunky: YES. ZombieU: NO.

Are you kidding? How many people are constantly changing their ID from console to console on a regular basis? Were you planning on owning more than a single console with which to play your games? This "problem" is only an issue to an extremely minuscule amount of people and most of those people probably work in the games press and want to transfer back and forth between home and office systems. It reminds me a lot of the way they constantly complained about the 100 friend limit on the 360, as if that has any impact on the majority of users.

Is it kinda dumb that they're still hard locking accounts to consoles? Sure. If your Wii U shits the bed (I seriously doubt it) you'll probably be upset about it, but of all the perfectly legitimate reasons to not get one, THAT was the one that soured you?

You don't think it's a big deal that if your console is stolen or broken, your account and games are gone with it? You don't think it's a big deal that you don't have portability with an account like you do with PSN, XBL, Steam, etc. and that you can't download or play games at friends house that you have tied to your account, or download or play games at a family's house? You don't think it's a big deal that your console has more ownership over your account and games than you do?

The competition has had this feature for years. I don't know, it seems like a big deal.

I almost went to a SF Bulls game the other day.

  1. Will there be a podcast?
  2. Who cares about the account "problem"? How many people change consoles they play at that often?
    Whenever I did it it was to get some achievements, happened maybe 3 times, but there are none on the Wii U.

I take it that you have no friends who play games and you don't play games at all if you're visiting family and you're okay with throwing money away at games you have even less ownership of than XBL/PSN/Steam.

The last console generation should've taught all of us how unreliable these systems can be, and given they had 2 hard locks during that live stream, I'd be wary of a system where I couldn't easily transfer my stuff to another if I needed to. The way it sounds you have to send in your system to whatever Nintendo customer service point exist in your country, which may be fine for the first year when there's the factory warranty, but in 2 years? You may have lost all the stuff you've bought.

And while I personally only own one PS3, it's not all that rare for people to have two, with the same profile on both. I most certainly have Steam installed on more than one PC. Nintendo won't allow you this option.

I'm not sure whatever other legitimate reasons you think of that would be worse than not giving the user any way to recover their stuff if the system dies after the warranty period is over?

I care. I do it often enough. There is no reason that Nintendo shouldn't have this basic feature.

Good to hear that Patrick's opinion of ZombiU stuck through to completion. I might have to grab it. Destructoid, Joystiq and Polygon liked it a lot. I mean I played through and mostly enjoyed I Am Alive (another very janky survival item-management game by Ubisoft) despite its myriad of problems so I'll probably enjoy ZombiU just fine.

Oh shit. For a moment there I thought Dave was gonna be a baby daddy.

Posted by Pop

Is Jeff talking about Chris with a white car? Damn that song is stuck in my head. At the beginning I was like, why the hell are they taking a break when there are so many games coming out! then I realized they have thanks giving. Happy holidays Americans!

Edited by SomeJerk

Fuck all other games, I want a WiiU just for ZombiU.

Since his definition of roguelike is any game where you die and can lose your stuff/progress, I now declare Doom/Doom 2 as a roguelike.

@WrenchNinja: You buy digital shit and you're taking a risk no matter what you do. 10 years from now Microsoft, Sony and Valve could be out of business and I'm shit out of luck with my thousands of dollars of digital content. Being able to swap my account between systems means fuck all in that situation.

And no, I don't have a ton of friends and family who move their profiles around all over the place. Insinuating that that's a normal occurrence is hard for me to swallow.

I hope he's well.

F everything this week because Persona 4 Golden is out tomorrow!

Cheer hard at the game, Patrick.  If the Bears lose it's your fault.

Seeing Dave in videos just makes me happy :)

Man, the whole Nintendo Network ID is a pile of nonsense. My wife gave up on getting her own WiiU for the living room now because her ID is taken on mine. Way to take 2 steps forward, 50 steps back, Nintendo.

Oh good. The nintendo fanboys have found their way to giant bomb now too.. Wasn't enough that you shit up the rest of the internet?
