Shownotes are delicious, and that is a straight up FACTOID.
0:33 Apocalypse Zero
Joel: Possibly the worst thing ever. And possibly I mean definitely. For the kids out there that's "mos def." No, not the rapper; the abreviation.
Dave: Actually, let's make it the rapper too. Blackstar was awesome!
0:58 Frontbeat Poster!
Joel: This will definitely sell ... at least one. Possibley to Dave's Mom.
Dave: Actually... my mom gets one for free. :(
1:52 Native Americans Cannot Catch a Break
Joel: First we buy Manhattan with some beads, vioalte Indian notions of ownership and then they get abducted by Aliens.
Dave: And then someone has the nerve to make a crappy videogame about them...
3:57 Remember this ratio: 10 dollars - 2 hours of movie.
Joel: That is just a general figure, but game designers should memorize it. If your game isn't at least 10 hours long and a minigame or, with the way things are going now, six, it's not worth my time. What's even worse is that games are taking longer to come out and are still too short. Where is all the time going. I'll tell you where: its going into the furrows in Obi Wan up there's forehead. Nice grafix dood, its all about the nice grafix.
Dave: Prey was one of those games stuck in development hell for 10 years. We should've just assumed it would be crap, as seems to be the case with any game that takes more than two years to come out. How's Duke Nukem: Forever doing?
Joel: Not well... not well at all.
4:18 Cold Fear
Joel: One more survival horror throw away.
Dave: What are you people doing to my genre?!
6:18 John Leguizamo
Joel: House of Bugging. Oh snap! The arch of his career has been strange indeed.
Dave: I should've edited this out.
8:10 No its not.
Joel: I've never really understood wampum, luckily Dave's joke provides the perfect pretense to look into it.
Dave: Considering I'm too lazy to click that link, I STILL don't know what it is. That's my recipe for comedy!
8:45 The Trail of Tears
Joel: This is one of the darkest episodes in American history.
Dave: Used for great comedic effect!
9:30 American Adventures in Currency
Joel: Man, petty theft would have been a lot better when people carried this much cash around.
Dave: I really wish I'd edited this part out.
16:07 Guyver + Kenshiro = Lame?
Joel: I know, it doesn't make sense to me either. It might just be that these shows are so good, that goodness is an essential quality of their existence. Thus, by diluting in anyway any aspect of the show, you corrupt them to their very cores, producing Apocalypse Zero. I think its also important to point out that we are not the first people to compare this show to the two mentioned above.
Dave: I doubt that very much! Nobody else on the internet is smart enough to make that comparison, much less actually have the fortitude to WATCH Apocalypse Zero.
18:25 Bear anatomy
Joel: The internet has everything. EVERYTHING.
Dave: Well now that we found that link I won't keep myself up at night anymore!
21:01 Mazinger Z
Joel: Missile boobies, while still disquieting, are no where near as bad as the villains in this show.
Dave: Giant robot missle boobs is one of the only funny things that's ever come out of Japan.
Joel: It's not really the same when they're fleshy and attached to a crustacean.
Dave: No, no it's not.
Joel: This is the only picture of one of these guys on the internet, which is a sign of just how bad this anime is.
Dave: Bad for the anime, lucky for the WHOLE HUMAN RACE.
24:01 Wicked City
Joel: The gun is cool. Everything else is not.
Dave: Yeah, maybe if you're a JERK. Wicked City was awesome! You're just mad because Taki Renzaburo did your mom.
25:25 Fraggle Rock
Joel: Man, that is another old, but awesome, reference.
Dave: I trained my whole life to make that crack.
