  • Enjoy friends!

    • Watching some videos about Ash’s First Pokemon, are we? Haha! You might want to check the “i” in “wrestling” in the podcast’s description.

      Just saying. lol

      Good cast as always! :)

    • Haha! I think I fell for it! #ItsJohnCena!

  • yesss!

    time for my Thursday night ritual.

    *grabs chips, pop and vape, loads blogcast onto vita and heads to mancave*

  • I missed the past two episodes. Did anything crazy happen??

  • Thanks for another great show gentlemen. Can’t wait to see what is announced at Paris Games Week next week. I’ve been playing a bit of Organ Trail myself and have to admit the game is pretty good.

  • If anyone didn’t see the correction on Twitter, the Paris Games press conference will start at 10am Pacific on Tuesday, not 9am.

  • Justin, don’t be too upset about last week’s blogcast . . . your rendition of the Back to the Future Theme this week, despite it stopping prematurely, was better than Sid and Ryan’s preceding interpretation of said theme. With Halloween just around the corner, I’ve been trying to binge on as many appropriately themed games before the end of this month. I’ve just completed Until Dawn, and could not recommend it enough for those who are looking for a fresh Horror/Thriller game with a surprisingly enjoyable plot (it’s great to play with friends too)! Have any of you gentlemen had the pleasure of finishing Until Dawn yet? If so, what’s your verdict? Ryan, please return safe from “Gay Paris”.

  • Great show as always! I have a feeling the “deep voices” comment is referring to all the little phrases like “those neeeew releases”, “what’re ya playin’?” and “Oh my!”
    Personally, I enjoy all the random recurring phrases. Still can’t read MOBA, DOTA, or SOMA without saying them in that monotone voice. :P

    Admittedly, I haven’t played a JRPG yet, but I plan to after I finish my final exams in a few weeks. I take it Final Fantasy 7 is a good place to start? Any suggestions?

    • I would wait on FF7. I actually think the graphics in FF7 are terrible, they don’t hold up at all. If you are talking about PS1 jrpgs, I would go with FF8 or 9 or Breath of Fire 4, and wait for the FF7 remake for ps4. Hopefully Square Enix won’t try to make it 3rd person action game. I also recommend Dragon Quest 8 for PS2 classics, it’s one my favorite rpgs ever.

    • Thanks for the recommendations! I’ll definitely look into those soon!

  • Start working at home with Google! It’s by-far the best job I’ve had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this – 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $100 per hour. I work through this link.

  • Tales of Zestiria was a day one plus all the DLC grab for me. The “Tales of” have always been good games, and so far almost 20 hours into ToZ, this is no different

  • I’m a bit at loss for words here because of Sid’s tightening comment (don’t know if I can use the first word on here lol so I’ll just say “behind”).

    I’m beginning to think Sid’s Tomfoolery is ruffling Justin’s feathers. lol.

    Speaking of Justin… he told me he was gonna try to get back to Until Dawn around Halloween. Welp, that’s Saturday so better get to it XD

    Yet, he still has SOMA to finish.

    Justin, I challenge you to finish both by the end of Halloween night. It’s very doable. SOMA is a 7-10 hour game and Until Dawn is a 5-7 hour game. Destiny will be there when you get back ;)

    SOMA will take longer because of stealth and puzzles and potential game overs, but Until Dawn is an interactive story that moves on regardless. I started it at like 10pm and finished at like 6am. You can even say I played Until Dawn… mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm UNTIL DAWN!!!!

    Ok that was bad… but anyways. Hilarious show once again. Can’t wait til everyone has finished those 2 games and you guys can discuss them more… maybe spoiler casts for each? *wink wink*

    • sorry not “get back to” I meant “get to” cuz I don’t think he’s played it at all yet.

      also, “loss for words” was pertaining to show feedback. Sid’s weirdness makes me speechless sometimes. Usually because I’m too busy laughing.

  • Hi guys!
    Really amazing show!
    Since it ended on horror talk, with Sid referring to The Babadook as a “good fun romp” (if only Ryan and Justin had seen it, they would’ve had something to say about that… haha), it made me of course think of Halloween.
    Are you guys dressing up in any great costumes?
    And, possibly more importantly, what are your favourite candies??
    Happy Halloween and thanks for always putting together my favourite podcast. :)))
