  • Enjoy the show!

  • Listening now! I keep seeing Battlefront stuff everywhere I’m so hyped. hypetrain.gif

  • I’m looking forward to the episode! I don’t know how to feel about “The Dark Tower” spoilers as I am considering delving into the [long] series, but I’m eagerly downloading the episode now!

    Good news! I have completed Bloodborne at long last! I was nervous about getting into it, but surprisingly found it to be not too challenging! It’s a JRPG at heart, so if your character is sufficiently leveled, you will breeze through the enemies. The converse is also true: if you are low in level the game becomes extremely challenging. As I tend to play JRPGs cautiously and patiently, I beat nearly all bosses/hunters on my first attempt, except for the last boss which took me a total of two attempts.

    It was a great game, and I heartily recommend it! Now, my mission is to play Mass Effect 2 and Catherine via PS Now. These will be my first time playing through the games, and I’m looking forward to the adventures!

    Stay classy, gents!

  • I’ve thought of reading The Dark Tower comic series for so long but I read so many other comics it would be impossible for me to just start I feel. Especially if I was to get into the books. Maybe someday. Great Blogcast guys :)

  • Thanks for another great show guys! I’m right there with ya’ll when you say there are just TOO many games. I’m trying to get through Fallout 4 and Metal Gear Solid V and still have to go back to the Witcher 3. O and Star Wars comes out this week. Someone tell me how to stop time.

  • Looking forward to the Fallout 4 discussion next week! Everything Sid said is very true. It’s just like The Witcher 2, where CDPRed had a vision, but couldn’t realise it until Witcher 3. And Bethesda did the same with FO4, they made everything better.

    Funny thing, Ryan always gives Sid crap for interrupting and derailing, but he does it too, lots of times. In this episode particularly.
    I don’t mind, though, you guys do a great job with the podcast, keep doing what you’re doing :)

  • HAHA I love the 187 reference, especially as it has absolutely nothing to do with the podcast. Such a great game, I should fire it up again sometime. I’m surprised any of you guys even remember it.

  • I often use two spatulas at the same time. Especially if I’m cooking meat in one pan and something else in another. I do use the same toothbrush for about six months though…

  • Great show, as always!

    Like cjkloster, I also have two spatulas for cooking different foods at the same time.

    Sid – if they are cheaper posters, I’d recommend 3M Poster Tape. I’ve been using it while living in the residence halls at college and it has been very reliable. However, if they are nicer posters, framing may be a wiser choice.

  • Why did you correct yourself saying “Holidays” than sticking to what you originally said?

    Nothing wrong with saying “during Christmas time”. If you were worried about offending someone then shame on you Clements. So tired of this “be careful of what you say!” crap.

  • HOLD THE PHONE. Why on earth are Colin and Greg going to be the only PlayStation podcast at PSX? Don’t get me wrong those guys are great, but I think we all know the PlayStation Blogcast reigns SUPREME. The world needs a Blogcast panel!

  • I couldn’t find another way to communicate this to Sony, but I have a couple of feature requests for the PS TV.

    1. Allow disabling bilinear filtering for PSP and PS1 games (like how it is on the Vita). This will give a sharper image than the current blur.
    2. Allow playing PS1 games on 1080i resolution (which is sharper for me than 720p on my 50″ TV). I hate having to go back and forth between resolutions.


  • Great show as always guys! I love the Sid’s mystery box segment! haha I agree with him, gotta have multiples of each item. Buy in bulk! Keep up the good work guys!

  • “too many games”


    My backlog is so long if I wrote it on paper and unraveled it it’d be like in the cartoons where it’d hit the floor, roll out the door, down the highway, and across a couple states.

  • Just wanted to mention that I love Downhill Domination, and had just been dreaming about how awesome (read: terrifying) a VR remake could be before listening to the podcast.

    Love the podcast and always enjoy listening to Clements trying to hold the show together, it never gets old.
