It's year change time again. We look back on the games of 2016. What was cool, what was lame, and what made us hurl.

 

Additionally, Super Mario Run, Tesla's automobile DLC, the AssCreed movie, and exchanging currency for sexual favors.

Episode 195: Despite All We Paid We Are Still Getting Played

And someone will say what's uninstalled can never be played.

Let's talk about The Game Awards, and just what exactly Geoff Keighley is doing with that show. We're of two minds about whether it's a success or even needs to exist at all.

We're more of a single mind about the origins of the modern racist sexist fascist dickhead movement that wants to be known as "alt-right" in the "gamergate" collective manbaby tantrum from a few years back. Why are there still so many disaffected, socially inept, losers out there so jaded by the fact no one wants to bang them? Chins up, failures. We're all ignorant shits sometimes, you can still turn this around, but you won't do it at 4chan or Breitbart.

The divisive ex-gaming writer Leigh Alexander gets a plaudit here from our own Lonesteban for cogent analysis of the situation.

Westworld gets a mention.

Buzz on Space Hulk Deathwing is not positive.

No Man's Sky post-patch

Dawn of War II and III hype

Ass Creed ennui

Hearthstone ennui and hype

Until Dawn-nui.

Welcome back to the show! I'll warn you here, though I doubt anyone reads the show notes, that we are very upset and bitter and cynical about politics and will reference that ceaselessly this episode, hopefully with more humor than we feel on the inside.

On the brighter side, there is fun stuff to talk about:

Switch

“Whatever the fuck that means” - Vince Z

Year of the FPS

Diablo 1 redux/Necromancer

Famicom/NES Mini

Voice Actor Strike

 

Dale played:

Titanfall 2

Dishonored 2

HITMAN

 

Esteban played:

Battlefield

Hearthstone (Aiming for 10)

Until Dawn

If you find it, let us know where.

Note this was recorded before we found out about RDR2 and the Nintendo Switch.

What did we talk about? PSVR? Palmer Luckey? Some stuff about Valve and the Steam philosophy of sales?

If I'm not mistaken, we also talked about:

World of Warcraft: Legion

Deus Ex: Human Revolution

Duelyst

Hearthstone

Diablo III PS4

Mafia City of Lost Heaven (wtf was this? I must have zoned out here)

Episode 192: Cold Brewed Killer
Written by Count Elmdor   
Sunday, 21 August 2016 16:34

We're back during the height of the heat, shirtless and dirtless, with tips on avoiding heatstroke, and substituting it perhaps, with another variety of stroke. For the subset that likes to pair M to F, anyway (this is as far as our tester ventured... as far as I know).

Topics of discussion this day:

Gawker sites (Kotaku) under new management

Esteban's trip to NYC and EVO

cold brew coffee

VR porn is 4 real

Metal Gear Survive

Internet ragers and how we really wish the best for them

No Man's Sky

Elite: Dangerous

Eisenhorn: Xenos

retro systems and stuff

Pokemon Go

Tons of VR porn
