Please Do Not Turn Off Your Console

Aaron couldn't make it this week, so you know what that means! It means some strong opinions about pickles, a discussion of the latest cuisines at Burger King, and us talking over the intro music because I just cannot. Be. Bothered.

If you make it through all that, your reward is some hot Street Fighter talk (Both USFIV and the newly-released Street Fighter V). There's some quick Firewatch discussion, but don't worry! We didn't spoil anything about it. Go play Firewatch now, though, because next week shit is gonna get real spoilery up in here.

Finally, thrill at the return of the long-absent news section! Warren Spector's making another System Shock! Ubisoft isn't making another Assassin's Creed this year! The Vive is $800! Fuck!

As always, don't forget to leave a review on iTunes and follow us on Twitter @TurnOffConsole. And hey, send us some email because we're super lonely, at turnoffyourconsole@gmail.com.

Opening theme music was Back to the Light, by Jun Fukuda. Closing theme music was Rave On, By Masafumi Takada. Both are on the Killer7 soundtrack, which you should probably own by now.

We get right down to the nitty gritty in this episode, with Aaron pitching a new podcast idea, Paul talking about VR porn, Matt talking about Randy Savage. I guess there's some video game talk in there too--specifically we talk Eidolon, X-Com 2, Firewatch (even though that isn't out until Tuesday), the appearance and disappearance of Red Dead Redemption, and Street Fighter fight pads. 

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

Everyone put on your best pair of reading glasses and grab some tea or coffee or some other classy thing, because things got real damn literary up ins and it is (mostly) Aaron's fault. We rap about Darkest Dungeon and Churchill Solitaire for a while, but once we get into discussing the Witness shit begins to pop off in a major way. Witness (ha!) the deployment of a sick Jonathan Franzen burn, followed by a discussion about The Ice-Bound Compendium, which was created specifically to make Aaron lose his goddamn mind and ramble about Danielewski books for several minutes. Plus, Skype is a piece of shit!

Seriously though check out The Ice-Bound Compendium.
