Please Do Not Turn Off Your Console

The holiday season is fully upon us, which means it's time to engage in that classic holiday tradition, talking shit about video games. But first, a big shout out to Ice Pick Lodge for actually listening to last week's podcast and tweeting us! That means we are now best friends forever, and if you think you are better friends than we are watch yourself because I have a knife and I will fucking cut you.

Also, Aaron and Paul bought some PS Vitas, so get ready to hear us talk about some Persona games that you played years ago! That and Olli Olli, where Aaron reveals he doesn't know what the fuck chillwave actually is.

We recommend playing Mario Cars 2, talk about the early access version of Satellite Reign (and other early access adventures), and HEY D4 IS FREE FOR XBOX GOLD USERS, WHY HAVEN'T YOU DOWNLOADED THIS ALREADY, WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU?

Opening music is Back to the Light by Jun Fukuda off of Killer 7. Closing music is Rave On, by Masafumu Takada, also off of Killer 7.

We come roaring into the week HOT with some critical video game discussion, as we continue our quest to become a podcast with more than five or six regular listeners. Aaron's ready, Paul's ready, it is time to talk about some god damn video games and what we think about them!

Like for example, did you know that Destiny released an expansion? And that it was really short and kind of a ripoff for $20? Well now you know, and we practice self-restraint and only talk about it for like ten minutes. We also discuss Hideo Kojima's game of the year (no really, he called it his game of the year), and then it's time for Paul to talk about some old games--Geometry Wars and The World Ends With You, specifically. Not to be outdone, Aaron rants incoherently about how fucking good Pathologic is, and also how great Ice Pick Lodge's kickstarter updates are. Also, some more Persona 4 talk, because Persona 5 isn't out yet.

We love you, dear listeners, so show some reciprocation by spreading the word about this podcast--grow our tiny army to something a little more respectable, and I promise we'll treat you right by talking about EVEN OLDER GAMES.

A quiet week means a quiet podcast, as Aaron and Paul unwind by talking about some free games that Aaron's been playing (Yet I Despise Him and Void & Meddler), some additional thoughts on Marvellous Miss Take, a few words more to say about Destiny, and hey, Halo: The Master Chief Collection actually works now! That's newsworthy, right? Sure it is, sure it is.

Oh yeah, and there were a couple events that happened, weren't there? A CRIME that was committed? A CRIME OF ROBBERY? Jeff Gerstmann may not have a trophy, but he is Trending Gamer 2014 in our hearts.

Some other stuff got announced too, we guess, but we're not going to play with your heart and promise any hot Persona 5 news like Adam Boyes did. YOU BASTARD.

Paul tried a new recording set-up, which didn't work, which is why his audio gets all shitty at the end. Live and learn, we guess.

It's the Please Do Not Turn Off Your Console 10th Episode EXTRAVAGANZA, complete with fond looks back over the last ten episodes and some of our favorite goofs and video game hot takes to bring you stumbling out of your Thanksgiving-induced food comas and into the month of December! That's right, we're.... wait, we canceled the clip show? You say we're just back to talk about our Destiny relapse, Dragon Age: Inquisition's enormous size (no really it keeps getting bigger), the Marvellous Miss Take, and some other games that we can't remember because this is going up the day after we recorded it? Also some talk about YouTube shenanigans and a quick sidetrip so Aaron can trash VR some more?

Shit, really?

Okay, well! Please enjoy this podcast, which is going up a day late because of storage restrictions! We cooked it up for you while the turkey was in the oven. Just a little stovetop...podcasting... man I don't know. This is a podcast about video games, not a podcast about brilliant food metaphors.
