The Giant Beastcast: Episode 73

We return to the biggest question of our time: Who would you recast for the Addams Family? We also talk about other stuff like Mafia III, Galaxy phones melting, Comic Con, Steam Dev Days, Star Citizen, your emails, and much more!

The Giant Bomb East team gathers to talk about the week in video games, their lives, and basically anything that interests them. All from New York City!

They're cheeky and they're chummy,
Meandering and punny,
They're outrageously funny,

The Beastcast Family

I think the RSS feed is busted. Neither this or Premium GBcast downloaded on Pocket Casts.

Suicide is painless (Themesong from mash) was written by a 14 year old. Think about that for a second.

The fondest of memories I have from the Addams Family, beside the Theme song, is the kickass pinball table that I've played when I was a kid.

I fricking loved it to bits.

EDIT: Forgot that English speaking people don't say "Flipper" when they talk about Pinball.

God, I love The Addams Family. I could watch Pugsley and Wednesday re-enact Hamlet forever.

As someone who's got an Android TV (a 2015 Bravia), I really like the app functionality. As well as launching Netflix, YouTube, Prime Video, PS Now etc as quickly as my laptop it can also run ePSXe with fantastic results. Other emulators are available. ;)

My Roku and FireTV are now back in their boxes.

In terms of surprisingly dark lyrics for goofy sitcoms, Red Dwarf is up there. Listen to how fucking cheery this theme is, compared to the lyrics:

It's cold outside, there's no kind of atmosphere,

I'm all alone, more or less.

Let me fly, far away from here,

Fun, fun, fun, In the sun, sun, sun.

I want to lie, shipwrecked and comatose,

Drinking fresh, mango juice,

Goldfish shoals, nibbling at my toes,

Fun, fun, fun, In the sun, sun, sun,

Fun, fun, fun, In the sun, sun, sun.

On that Break Up games email, the only one that comes to mind is Always Sometimes Monsters from a couple years back. I think it runs a bit long and has issues, but pretty specific to that topic.

I just got a TV w/ Roku baked in and the TV to Netflix transition being seconds is pretty great instead of waiting for my Xbox to boot, get out the controller, etc.

What I wouldn't give for some time stamps especially on BeastCast - I tune into GB podcasts mainly for the game related discussions and they are so scarce & scattered with this show in particular.

Concerning breakup games, Cibele pretty explicitly deals with a failed relationship.

OMG, Vinny's idea for VR sinking into the dark waters of the Mariana Trench is one of the most terrifying things I've ever heard suggested. It's the total lack of the ability to get your bearings, the abject darkness, and the constant falling sensation. Fuck that.

@hermithomeboy: I thought I've heard him use the term "boys" quite a bit more often, but so have I, and really I like to think I'm better off for it. After all, we're just a bunch of fancy podcast boys.

I do need to hear him start talking about ghosts and horses and haunted dolls more, and maybe his new favorite press releases from PR firms regarding mega food creations. I WANNA MUNCH.

Re: Smart TVs

I just got a new Vizio smart TV and even though I have a console to do my streaming, the remote has a button to launch Netflix so it's convenient and the app works relatively well.

The YouTube app is pretty sluggish, though.

The only Funko pop I've ever liked is the one for the Wendigo from Hannibal. It's a tiny, horned representation of Hannibal Lecter's presence in Will's psyche. It's supposed to have creepy eyes! Actual characters whether they're human, alien or robot all end up looking awful squashed into their aesthetic.

PS. Happy birthday legobutts

The best break-up game is Saints Row 3 or 4. Beating people down with giant dildos after a bad relationship is preeeetty cathartic.
