  • It’s my favourite time of the week! Blogcast… Wooo!

  • Lol Steven Universe.

  • Did a sniper take out Justin in that picture, and that’s why he’s not on the blogcast?

  • Wasn’t there a Golem interview last week?

    • Justin Massongill

      Yep, with Jaime Griesemer. This one’s with Marty O’Donnell and Jared Noftle (pictured above) and we talk about lots of different stuff! Marty has lots of interesting insight about audio design, of course — I might be a bit biased since I helped conduct the interview, but I think it came out great!

  • Cool. More info on Golem. One of my most anticipated vr games. Hope to try burnout at e3 this year!

  • Episode 202 “off the rails” and so much fun ;-).

    You guys are the best I love listening in. I wish Justin was in this episode.

    Sid is the perfect person to have at the head of all the different generations with the Playstation podcast I think he makes the perfect butt of all of your jokes but you should give him the praise because he was that older brother or sisters bf that showed you games coming out you had no idea of (90s)

    Justin massongill is a person I can really relate to. He’s just a fun relaxed guy.

    Ryan clements is the perfect source for rare gems that I’ve never looked into. He’s open to so much that he finds the sweet sweet treasure that you been searching for.

    Nick Suttner is a very interesting person. He always has fl very informative information and would be thay perfect friend to have to tell you what really interesting and games are out and worth your time. I like nick he seems to keep the tempo of the train on rails….

    Anyways just some incite on how a fan feels. I Think you guys are really fun to listen to and I’d love to hang out with each of you.

    Ps I’m drunk :-p

  • I have a suggestion for a topic…quality of PS Plus free game offerings and indies vs. AAAs. I think it would be an interesting topic.

  • I instinctively sang the flinstones vitamins song with Sid…

  • I loved Kings Quest first episode, but episodic games are really annoying, bcs you forget the plot by the time the next episode comes out. I wish they would just have the entire game published.

  • Heads up for Sid…season 5 of “Bob’s Burgers” comes to Netflix on April 1.

  • You guys talking about Teddy Ruxpin brought back a childhood memory of mine, and I couldn’t help but sharing. Teddy Ruxpin would only play actual Teddy Ruxpin branded cassette tapes. However, there was a knock off Teddy Ruxpin that would play any and all cassettes you choose to put in his little bear body, and being frugal, my parents gave me this version for a Christmas gift one year. I was probably only about 5 or 6 when my older brother thought it would be really funny to load up his Sam Kinison stand-up comedy tape.
    My little ears were forever scarred as I watched my beloved talking teddy bear suddenly spout curse words worse than any drunk uncle at a family reunion.
    oh, older brothers. lol

    Also, Steven Universe! My youngest daughter and I love watching this show together, and I love how it manages to tackle pretty serious social concepts, but always with major heart and characters you can’t wait to learn more about. I can’t wait until you get to the episode “Jailbreak”…that one’s a major fave of mine. :)

    Thanks so much for another super duper, filled to the brim with goodness, episode!

  • Teddy Ruxpin was the Tickle Me Elmo of 85 and 86. It was made by Worlds of Wonder, which was founded by former Atari employees. Like Ryan I am 31 and like many in our age group I had a very “go outside and play” upbringing. My only video games were LED based portables (I still have a couple, including “Blast It,” a Breakout clone), or the occasional coin-op machine. The T.V. we had was for playing VHS and Betamax, so I never saw the commercials. I did, however, have trendy grandparents, and they bought me a Teddy Ruxpin.
    I can’t remember the stories at all. I remember being a bit creeped out by his “side-kick” Grubby. The machine also made a bunch of grinding gears noises when it moved, so it wasn’t great for going to sleep to. I must have had it for a few years because I remember that it would occasionally stop “reading,” scan the room and ask rhetorical questions. Eventually, it broke. The mouth stopped moving and the grinding noise was met with the addition of repeated clicking.

    • I finally got my first console, a SEGA Genesis, for Christmas in ’94. I didn’t get to play it often and many of my games didn’t have a save or password feature. As a result, the first game I beat was Greatest Heavyweights, the follow-up to Evander Holyfield’s Real Deal Boxing. It’s a side-view boxing game with a currency system used to increase stats.
      To Mr. Suttner, have you played Grim Fandango: Remastered yet? I know that Vita allows you to swap the left and right thumbsticks, I don’t know if PS4 will. Either way, the game is enjoyable, slow paced and has no physical skill requirements. If you need a little help, I’d recommend the guide on uhs-hints, as it uses a multi-tiered hint system. The guide helps you avoid wasting a lot of time, but it tries not to spoil your “aha moments.”

      Thanks for another great episode, keep them coming.

  • Don’t really get into Stephen Universe but I absolutely love the theme song!

    Also Ryan’s space monk impersonation was dead on.

  • Hot d**g, Life Force! Love me some shooters and when the stage are biologically inspired I’m even more pleased. Love showing my kids these classic experiences. They are absolutely enamored with Bubble Bobble; has aged beautifully.

  • Lead Account Manager? Does Nick no longer have relations with developers?

  • Guys I recently signed up for the free trial of PS Vue and what I’ve heard isn’t just corporate shill. I just watched Walking Dead on the east coast feed, I’m very happy with it. Also I can’t wait for Alienation next month.
