If you're the sort of person who just wants to mindlessly shoot through co-op games with a chatty group of friends, Wildlands is fine for that. Anyone else should probably look elsewhere.
Link's most ambitious adventure is one of Nintendo's crowning achievements.
Guerrilla's got something really special here.

After spending no less than a half-hour talking about Yelp, the gang finally gets down to business with Letterpress, Ni no Kuni, Halo 4 spoilers, Kentucky Route Zero, Antichamber, and, of course, Beverly Hills Cop.
Please Log In to post.
this might be my favourite episode thanks to ryan ripping apart his own yelp review
12:20 is a litte awkward now
Where is the break music from? The one about 35 minutes in.
Man, I really hope, one day, someone spoils a game for Brad "Eager to Spoil a Three Month Old Game But DON'T YOU FUCKING SAY A WORD ABOUT ONE THAT CAME OUT IN MARCH BECAUSE I HAVEN'T PLAYED IT YET" Shoemaker.
Laughed out loud at the sillyness around the last 20 minutes...
how great would it be if the secret inside the cube was an announcement for some big new Molyneux game like fable or something
or just his face
man would people be pissed either way
Bitchin' about the internet for the first 30 was hilarious.I'm trying to figure out if the rant about yelp reviews was meant to be ironic, or if they really think that highly of their own opinions as reviewers that the same complaints don't apply to them.I'm fine with either.

Well, they do have over 10 years of professional reviewing. So yeah, I think they have earned the ability to think that way.
@doobie: At first I didn't get what you were saying. Then I got your sexual innuendo, it was great, I laughed. Your joke is that he fucked cortana. Hilarious.
thank you very much
oh you was being sarcastic. well done
Well. In Halo 3 cortana wasn't in his helmet.
i wonder if by the end of halo 6 his helmet will of been in cortana
1:50:00 - Incredible insight into injecting alcohol into anuses using turkey basters.
As far as that first question goes about playing a build that never came out, it'd either be RE 1.5 or that Four Horsemen Of The Apocalypse game that was supposed to come out of the PS2.
"I'm Mayor McCheese, fuck you" - Vinny
Gets me every time.
@peritus: I guess I should have, haha. I hope he was joking.
Brütal Legend ain't no stinkin' tower defense game...
Listen to it every week ;)
They should probably stop talking about Halo 4 at this point.
Especially as everyone has stopped playing it.
Nobody going to touch animating the turkey baster part? COME ONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN
I think Jeff called the end to Halo 6.
Actually overheard someone say it once: "Yeah..I'm kinda a big deal on yelp"
Did you punch him in the nose? You should have ;-)
......but then the Captain gets a lead on a major case a few years later doing real cop work, only to be shot when he gets too close to solving it. The case is ultimately solved by the showboating Axel who gets a little close to the Captain's little girl.
Outraged, he uses his Beverly Hills connections to move to Detroit and to attain the #2 position in the local megacorp. He nearly succeeds in taking over the company and the power to destroy Axel's beloved Detroit, but is fortunately stopped by Buckaroo Bonzai.
But don't worry, the Captain learns the futility of vengeance, grows as a person, and joins Starfleet as a captain.
@mrpandaman:Is that what you're were trying to say?Yes, yes it was.
Is that what you're were trying to say?
Yes, yes it was.
I don't think that's what he was trying to say though.
A bit of extra information regarding Ni no Kuni's combat: You can actually cycle through the radial menu using the L2 / R2 buttons, also, which allows you to navigate the menus and move at the same time. Also, around 15-20 hours in, you get the ability to use the Square and Triangle buttons to set your whole party to All Out Attack (triangle) or All Out Defend (Square).
Honestly, I really think that's the one mistake the game makes; there was no reason to withhold the All Out mechanics so far into the game.
Not sure how often you fellas read the actual comments! I imagine it must be a titanic effort and that I'd have more luck getting struck by lightning than winning the lottery, much less breaking through the attention barrier on a weekend, but....
You mentioned someone sleep-gaming! There have been many proven cases where people have committed rather elaborate crimes, the first of which occurred in Ireland, during sleepwalking episodes. Another occurred during a fisherman's dream where he dreamt he was gutting a fish, but woke to find his wife dead. Such episodes are called parasomnias. You can even sleep-drive, or sleep-cook, sleep-eat, and have sleep-sex.
THE BOOK I READ(Dreamland: Adventures in the Strange Sci of Sleep) covered Ambien (Zolpidem) and sleep aids related to it. The way it works, apparently, is by causing "anterograde amnesia", so that if you had a bad night of sleep, you wouldn't have been able to form short term memories to remember it. How that actually causes people to sleep walk more often is unknown and wasn't discussed in the book, just that it's related to the taking the drug and its interaction with your brains.
@TruthTellah said:Wow, Vinny is really mature about faith in his child's life. That's great to hear.@dr_mantas said:Also, Vinny - raise your kid atheist.as much as i'd like to agree with the latter, the BEST way would be to present all the options as equally as possible, and let the kid make an informed choice (probably closer to vinny's suggestion). at least that avoids the narrowminded brainwashing that sadly occurs with most children today.but as i'm sure many of you will say, i have no business telling anybody how to raise their child (wrong though their methods may be in my eyes...)

Agreed that it's his choice. Though I also agree that his choice is really rational and wise, go Vinny :)
FFX remains extremely memorable to me too, probably because of the music.
"And you know, we know that humans are awesome."
"Sit the fuck down bitch, I'm gonna open you up"
Sounds like some of the porn I watched last night...I mean...erm...I've gotta go.
You can you your Left and Right trigger instead of the D-pad, Brad.
Use your left and right trigger instead of the D-pad?
Is that what your were trying to say?
Were they talking about Quest 64 during this Bombcast? Turn-based combat with movement.
Thank you @Ryan for talking about Kentucky Route Zero. Loved the text adventure parts and just traveling on the road, finding cryptic and spooky locations. Definitely the prettiest game of 2013 so far.
I'm sorry, Ryan, the answer we were looking for was "Nation Red".
Goddamnit Jeff......what the fuck is wrong with your friends?! Butt-chugging in a dirty bar bathroom?
Ruby weapon? Emerald Weapon?
Demi-Fiend. Digital Devil Saga 1
Get on Atlus' level!
yelp sounds like it would be good for stress release
GOD I'M SO MAD "mmm well this restaurant is shit" NO FUCK YOU
Ryan was on his fucking A-game this week
Man Jeff was awfully eager to bash on religion in this podcast. Thankfully it was kept to a very small minimum. But great podcast as always guys. Also I was happy to hear Patrick and Brad explain why Sega would go after Relic Entertainment considering Sega's healthy relationship with the Creative Assembly and how the Total War games are one of Sega's best IP's going for them.
GWELPH. Not Gelf. gWelf.
The online play of Halo 4 is the worst in the series. I stopped playing it and went back to Reach. The multiplayer is also unbalanced and still have server issues. 343i really didn't do much with 4 other than making it pretty. The story sucks, the fights are the same old same old, spartan ops is boring, the multiplayer is literally "lets make halo a new COD", and the ending was the worst in any game I played last year.
I think the bomb crew have halo 5-6a plot a little wrong. I don't think they are going to humanize master chief, I think they will make Cortona human by reversing the dydacs lazor weapon. Just a thought.
Great show as usual, the non game talk has got a couple of friends at university listening to it
FFX is one of my favorite games ever, I had all the weapon (yeah I dodged the lightning) and when I finally got to the final boss, Wakka b*tch slapped him in one shot with a 99 999 limit break critical. I was mixed a that point, it was kind of a letdown and a holy crap my guy are strong lol.
'fuck those guys, you don't have to justify anything to them, brad'
so true ryan, so true
The best thing about Yelp is the Francis York Morgan Profile someone made.http://www.yelp.com/user_details?userid=A9ANEoe0oQ8WS8QBbNH_4g
