Oh man that MC Chris RE4 vs KH2 video. There's a bit in there where he describes KH2 as: "This anime bullshit, with their hands on their hips going like "Boy, I hope we solve this mystery!"" that I, a Kingdom Hearts fan, still quote on the regular. Kind of a weird nostalgia trip hearing it come up.

Anyone got a time stamp on the KH stuff? I would very much like to skip it when I around to listening. Another round of "Kingdom Hearts is so confusing!" from people that have never tried is honestly just dull at this point.

Welp, if I didn't already know it, this would be the point where I accepted it. I apparently have a completely out-of-whack idea as to what "good" and "bad" writing are.

That line in no way seems as bad as people are making it our to be, or reacting to it as being. Like, even having not played the game (for whole other reasons), and having no context, it seems like it's kind of a pun... in context. And people are acting like it's the most ludicrous thing they've ever heard. Like... what?

(The rest of the scene after that is kind of hilariously dramatic, but geez, this seems like a real mountain out of a molehill that a bunch of people who have already decided to hate on the game are latching onto)

I have more exposure to the Street Fighter and Darkstalkers characters from Pocket Fighter than any other game.

All fandoms deserve to be taken down a peg or two, especially when they're being active jerks.

I dunno man, seeing their quality of play in SM64, I don't think all the problems in DK64 were caused by the game. Just saying.

This was fun though, and ended the only possible way. Perfect.

While I don't agree with his opinions on MGSV, I definitely wholly agree and appreciate Jeff tackling the "Oh, so it's a Kojima game?" (Both as an insult and a defense) people. There is a pretty wide gulf in tone and storytelling between the MGS games and what DS has shown (and also MGSV, imo, which is part of why I didn't like that game).

@conmulligan:

Oh geez, yikes. As someone who is maybe abnormally sensitive to that very specific thing (bad things happening to pregnant women), glad to know about this as it would probably sour me on the whole thing if I actually played it. It'd be like showing what happened to Dr. Strangelove in MGSV all over again.

@kevlarkoala: I remember them talking about it on the west coast at some point, and there's a group of people that were VERY bothered by the healing stuff (bandaging wounds and all that) and act like it was a ton of menus and wasted time, which was not a thing I ever noticed or experienced.

I've come to accept that I'm just really tolerant of specifically lots of menus and lengthy cutscenes (especially opening ones) due to largely growing up on JRPGs though, so maybe it's worse than I noticed.
