Please Do Not Turn Off Your Console (general)

Look I'm not going to lie to you, the first like 30 minutes of this thing feature a hefty helping of mouth noises coming from Paul, because he is a goddamned savage and does not know how to behave. Also we are joined a few times by the young Julia, who is very EXCITED to talk to the strange men on the computer. It's all very adorable. The Julia stuff, not Paul's savage cronching. That shit's just gross.

But there's a lot of ground to cover, and some of that ground is even video game related! Please, join Aaron and Matt and the sound of Paul slavering into a mic as they discuss Horizon Zero Dawn, even thiccness distribution, election day, Too Much Blood, Thor, Mario's Com-moonist agenda, Tunak Tunak Tun, and Hidden My Game By Mom.

Seriously? Nobody tells me anything.

All the boys are back in town, if towns are defined as the same video call, which means this episode contains roughly 33% more boy than usual!

We talk about all kinds of things, ranging from video games that did not release in the current calendar year to... Well, I think we talk about Zelda and Mario Odyssey, so I guess there's some relevance there.

Can you believe that we're going to get the three of us together again to do this next week? I can't either, and I don't think it will happen. But we'll try!

The boys are back in town, which is to say that Aaron and Matt are back to serve you up the spiciest of chicken sandwiches and also chicken nuggets, which is to say that Burger King has spicy chicken nuggets now and Matt tried some. Honestly, there's a lot of food talk in this one. I don't know, maybe we were hungry or something. We also talk about Godzilla for an awfully long time.

In addition, we briefly touch on the closing at Visceral Studios (it's how we get to the Godzilla talk), as well as the cold weather, seltzer water, Jean Reno's Onimusha, and a shocking revelation about Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker that blew Matt's mind. 

Well, it didn't really blow his mind. But he didn't know about it! And now he does and YOU WILL TOO.

Man one day we'll get back on a solid track, but until that day you get this thing that we recorded Friday night. I don't remember much of it.

Yo welcome to our new food podcast, where Matt talks about stuff he ate on tour including Skyline chili, Waffle House, and Swenson's. Also I guess we talk about some video games in there too, including *heavy sigh* more about Destiny 2.

Also discussed: jarred hot dogs, mixing drinks, re-purposed beer drawers, Halo 5, Broken Age, the good old WoW days, guided games, and, after the show was over, this thing.

Okay, so we made a token effort to talk about other games (Hiveswap), but ended up just talking about Destiny 2 again.

Only it was Paul and Aaron this time, so that's a change from last week?

Hey, did you hear about that new Destiny game? The second one? Well, in case you were unaware, it came out! On consoles! Where you can play it! And it is pretty good!

Matt and Paul spend a lot of time marveling about the fact that Destiny 2 is good. Maybe more time than is strictly necessary, but they do break things up in the middle for a brief discussion of XCom, Metal Gear Solid, and... gosh, that probably is all.

Please enjoy as we struggle to stick to our own podcasting schedule!

Right off the top here, let me warn you that from about 12:30 to uh, 36:00 there is a serious chance that we spoil some part of Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice, so if that bothers you, then you should probably skip those bits!

We started way earlier but got sidetracked by American McGee and his Alice games (both of 'em!) so the spoiler warning we give at the top of the show is basically useless.

After we finally have our conversation about Senua, we veer into the worlds of Final Fantasy for a bit, reminiscing about the MMOs and MMOs in general. Then it gets real D&D real fast.

And that's basically the rest of the show. Cheers!

Surprise, Aaron and Matt are back at it again with another hot track for your listening pleasure. While they talk, why not enjoy some roast beef? Put it in your mouth and savor its fine flavor. They sure as hell did! 

While you're enjoying that good mouth sounds of Matt eating roast beef, stick around and listen to some other mouth sounds, like their discussions on video games and of course pooping a lot, plus: Mayo’s cause is righteous, college mail, deli talk, chicken parms, audio woes, Hellblade is super fucking good, Pyre, Destiny 2 for like a second, wurms, dev documentaries, and other nonsense.

We are on a new recording setup because Cast has been unreliable so hopefully this all wound up sounding nice and good! If it did not then we are really in trouble, huh? There were some moments where our mics adjusted themselves and... not sure why that happened, but whatever I think it still sounds fine. Sorry for any peaking.

Well, we tried.

It's been a while, and we came to this podcast loaded for bear, which is precisely why we spent so much of it talking about Shin Godzilla and Pro Wrestling Entertainment. You know, video games!

Fear not! We also talk about the young, dumb, and full of uh... mayo Splatfest currently happening (as of this recording anyway) in Splatoon 2, which is a game that is very good!

Then some other stuff happens? I don't know, I have a very poor short-term memory and in spite of promising to take notes while recording every time, I have yet to actually do that. Look, it'll be a surprise for all of us. I'll be right there with you, hearing the whole thing again for the first time.

EDIT: Cast messed up and couldn't quite fix it, so enjoy Matt's precognitive abilities.
