Shownotes by Joel:
0:45 OCRemix meet up
Dave: I do love me some OC remix!
Joel: And me and Jerry are always down with the Soul Caliber and Guilty Gear.
Dave: This will not turn out well.
1:58 Dave... hate... STEAM!!!
Joel: How can you hate steam Dave? It's so convenient. All the files you want are right there... and it seems you actually like it.
Dave: I am terrified of the idea that Valve is monitoring when I take screencaps of prerendered girls breasts, something that happens more often than I'd care to admit. STOP CENSORING ME AMERICAN GOVERNMENT!
Joel: Remember that movie where Sandra Bullock had her identity was erased? That's what Valve has planned! Punkbuster, while unrelated, was the first step!
6:15 Two Games! First: Shadow Grounds. There had better be coop!!
Joel: Doom 3 and Smash T.V.? Just say Alien Swarm, Dave, they're like the same freaking game!
Dave: Unnecessarily complex analogies is the conerstone of this podcast Joel, and I won't let you try and tear down what we've built.
Dave: Ganymede, Jupiter's second most famous moon!
Joel: Effing Io. Jett is from Ganymede!
Joel: Once again, we spend most of our time talking about games we played when we were twelve.
Dave: Whatever, Smash T.V. was fun, Running Man action! And also... Crash and the Boys... again.
Joel: DAMMIT DAVE!
12:08 Sin, the game that could never be (worth your $20).
Joel: Yeah, Sin, as in it is an affront to God himself. Half Life 1 was better than this game.
Dave: The alpha tech demo of Half-Life 1 was better than this game.
Joel: Episodes: Good for Shenmue, didn't work here.
Dave: I think saying episodes are good for a game that got through two of its proposed sixteen chapters is specious reasoning...
Joel: Dave, you don't even know Man, I would have played 7 chapters of Ryo. Hey mister, wanna wrestle?
Dave: No, no I don't.
Hey mister, wanna wrestle?
Joel: Scalable difficulty, when poorly done, is the bane of Dave's existence.
Dave: Apparently "scalable difficulty" is secret code for "inspire keyboard shattering rage"
Joel: Lame character designs and poor "boob physics" distract us, so we turn to awesome Korean martial arts.
Dave: Sex sells, Joel.
Joel: We're just not sure to who.
Dave: Not the Koreans!
23:40 Thank you gamefaqs.
Joel:Dave, you helped a lot of people beat a mediocre game. You're an enabler.
Dave: An enabler who put $50 in his pocket!!
24:28 The Wii shall be your salvation.
Joel: Wii price point is the jam! THE JAM!
Dave: If it comes out at this price, I will most assuredly pee my pants.
Joel: Er... yes... balls to you Sony! BALLS!
Dave: Sony is still not allowed to have my balls.
28:03 YOU SON OF A BITCH!
Dave: Don't blame me, man, blame society.
28:42 Advent Children.
Sony: Well Doctor?
Doctor: They're all girls.
Sony: ALL of them?
Doctor: Yes, every last one.
Dave: The uncanny valley is a theory that says we like human resembling things (like dogs and Roomba vacuums) because they exhibit traits we can ascribe to humanity, but we only like this up to a certain point, after which it becomes a lot less cute and a lot more creepy. That's why mankind invariably ends up hating robots!
Joel: The only thing uncanny is how poorly these characters aproximate men.
Dave:Geostigma ... that is all.
Joel: We've actually now spent more time talking about it than the movie did.
Joel:Here's a link to something that was missing in Final Fantasy.
Dave: The internet doesn't have enough links for what was missing in this movie.
Bahamut? More like BahaBUTT!
41:11 The vagina is a horrofying well of darkness.
Joel: That moe thing is seriously freaky.
Dave: No Joel, the creepy part is it's not the worst Japan can do.
44:17 The Northern Cave
Joel: Dave played Final Fantasy VII non stop, don't believe his lies.
Dave: That's actually not far from the truth. Back in highschool I wasn't allowed a Playstation. I had to buy one and hide it from my mom and dad. Since I had no TV of my own, the only time I could play it was on Tuesday afternoons when my Dad worked late. I would play it for about four hours a week, but... oh... those four hours!!
Joel: Tonberries are awesome.
Dave: Thanks Joel.
