Richard Dawson? Guess I’ll need to listen to figure out the context here.

@chocolatebear: Dan said they held it back for 3 hours to accommodate an embargo (so they could actually talk about whatever the thing in question was).

Happy Friday, y'all! Get well soon Vinny!

Regarding the save transfer email one of my favorites is from Suikoken 1 to 2. If you got all 108 Stars of Destiny and saved Gremio, you could import your save into the sequel and then Hero and Gremio would join your castle.

The internet in the US is based on terrible infrastructure, monopolized corporations that make good internet prohibitively expensive for some people, and "broadband," which is defined as at least 25MB down and 3MB up, only doesn't reach a majority of the population.

Odyssey is a great game. It seems like Alex has successfully dissuaded the crew not to play it, because he thought it had too much content. Which is a real shame because it should be in the game of the year consideration. Maybe not game of the year but for me it's for sure top ten.

@taaltos: It is getting better but with things like Net Neutrality, the only ever increasing resolution of games, and corporate greed don't make me very hopeful that things are going to change. I feel like we're having the same conversations we had about OnLive a decade ago.

Is there any video of Jeff playing hockey? The more I hear this guy go on and on about his "love" for hockey the more I think he's all talk and no puck. Is it stick or shtick?

Man it shouldn't really matter should it? If the guy loves hockey thats cool for him, he doesn't have to be Gretzky on the ice to be a fan of the sport.

If Vinny is out today, then I'm going to take a guess that today's GBE Playdate is either Nintendo or Wrestling related ;)

You add "of general ignorance" to that and Jeff could be hosting QI

@spindini: That's what I don't like about GB. One person has an impression of a game, good or bad, and the rest of the crew seem to just agree with them and move on. There is no debate. Odyssey might be the best AC game and one of the best RPGs made not because of how big it is but because how it manages to surprise even after so many hours poured into it.

After a rough work day I finally sat down at the desk to get my paperwork done. I load up the poscast app and say “Come on, Vinny. Help me out here” and turn on the podcast...

Regarding loading times: I was surprised at the loading times in Destiny 2. I'd boot up the game, then go do a few chores.

Re: car damage. Playing through Mafia 3 right now, and I know cars back then were built heavier, w/ more steel etc. But I'm always a bit surprised by the lack of damage in wrecks. Especially considering they aren't licensed cars.

It's a shame Vinny wasn't there, for sure, but this podcast was excellent nonetheless. Good work, crew!
