Ozzie and Chris do a little catching up since their last podcast before rambling about Video Game Violence completely losing track of any point they were going for.

  1. A whole hour. Good lord.

    Very enthusiastic, Chris.

    Ubisoft: "Synchronize swatches!"

    This thing just cut out at 4:16. o.O

    I've got it fired up on Youtube and commenting on the blogspot. High tech, baby!

    The antagonist in a lot of Shin Megami Tensei games is the Christian God. Seriously. He's the last boss in Shin Megami Tensei 2.

    A console made by Fisher Price?

    Nintendo reminds me a little of an overbearing mother. They'll force you to do something because they think you'll enjoy it if you spend a little time with it. It's for your own good.

    Ghost Squad on the Wii is hilarious with Paradise Mode unlocked.

    My definition of winning the console generation? To crush my enemies, to see them driven before me and to hear the lamentation of the women.

    Right. Nintendo's strongest point is its first party games. Multiplatform games were watered down heavily.

    Gloat much?

    Ah, Aliens: Colonial Marines. Le sigh. Though I did enjoy the multiplayer.

    Doritos pope?

    Hm....24 minutes in, no video game violence.

    I still adore Eternal Darkness. High up on my "favorite games" list.

    Not being able to skip the respawn animation didn't help Too Human.

    Peter can do no wrong in Chris' eyes? o.O

    This is an odd conversation to comment on since I know the ending.

    Chris loses argument. Wii U Version canceled.

    Oh Chris...this is painful to listen to. =P

    We are exactly half-way in since the topic has come up. Video Game Violence time.

    o.O This went to a weird place fast.

    It's like I keep saying - If video game violence caused real violence in even a fraction of the people who played them, this country would have drowned in a sea of flames years ago.

    Get Spoony to throw up the horns when you say that.

    And the best part is that there are games waaaaaay more violent but they don't know enough about the sub-culture to find them.

    Spear and Magic Helmet.

    Politicians don't need to be smart. They just need to be good at scaring people. And they are great at scaring people.

    Electronic child molesters? o.O I hadn't heard that one.

    And now it cuts out at 41:12. Why does this video keep saying it's an hour long?

    Let's try the goddamn MP3. Maybe that's an hour.

    Huzzah. It works.

    Chris is starting to bring up the points I always bring up on this topic.

    Shooter video games that are good for kids? Pokemon Snap?

    Military ones? No.

    The least sexy sex simulator ever.

    Mass Effect was less thrilling than advertised. It was still fun, but it didn't blow me away.

    There's the problem right there...listening to FOX.

    Ah, Leeland Yee. -_- Another fine idiot from my home state.

    Nobody's accusing you of anything, Oz.

    To paraphrase the Daily Show writers in America: The Book - It appears the skills required to run for office and do well in that office are diametrically opposed.

    And now an hour has passed. Three different play buttons and I finally get the full podcast.

    o.O What the hell are you talking about?
