Please Do Not Turn Off Your Console (general)

Look, I'm not going to lie to you. We got to talking about stuff we shouldn't have talked about and paid the price in having our podcasting software shut us down. Don't worry though, we saved that audio and stitched it all back together and you wouldn't know it if I didn't tell you. Also most of this episode is Aaron talking about how good Let it Die is.

But fear not, we discuss other things too, things of GRAND IMPORTANCE, such as the turning of My House, Doctor Who, 102 Dalmatians, measuring our ping, Invisible Inc., Black Cyber Weeknd, Swap Sword, Persona 4, Playstation Credit Cards, Destiny, and... probably some other stuff?

Here is the video Aaron mentions. If you intend to play Let it Die, maybe don't watch it and savor the surprise! If you don't, well, check it out! Enjoy our special guest musician! I like the transition so much I'm going to leave the music info out.

Opening song is Back to the Light by Jun Fukuda off of Killer 7's OST, closing track is (probably) Xor Connection by Stephane Picq, off the Commander Blood soundtrack.

It's the hot new viral marketing campaign sweeping the nation. Have you googled the Mummy? I mean really googled it? Got deep in the googs? I know I have, and I am a better man for it.

We're back, after running up against our data cap because we kept making podcasts go too long with another episode that goes on too long, but there was lots to talk about. Things like Aaron playing the Pathologic teaser that was insanely good (and he talks about it for like, a while. It's like twenty minutes. Sorry) but there's other stuff to talk about too, which you can also google:

Noisy piss etiquette, North American Scum, Dubs vs Subs, Mon Ami!, GUTEN TAG, opening the kimono, Wild Things is less sexy than you remember, Starship Troopers, The Animatrix, Let it Die, PSX stuff, and (perhaps most importantly), WINDJAMMERS IS BACK. 

Opening song is Back to the Light by Jun Fukuda off of Killer 7's OST, closing track is (probably) Xor Connection by Stephane Picq, off the Commander Blood soundtrack (it wasn't that hard to look it up Paul).

Good lord, has it really been 100 episodes? 100 episodes of total fucking nonsense, and don't you dare think we stopped here!

We got the whole damn crew back together, which basically just means that Aaron is incoherent for a certain amount of time while the rest of us are doing JUST FINE THANK YOU VERY MUCH. No, really, we're peachy-keen. 

In spite of our issues, we still managed to talk about a mess of video games, which I totally wrote down while we were talking about but then I deleted what I wrote and well. WELL.

Titanfall 2 we definitely talked about, because we talked spoilers about the campaign, so if you want to avoid that don't listen between the 42 and 48 minute mark. We also talked D&D, which was refreshing! We talked about the Switch, about the Nintendo Classic, about Santa being a power bottom, and about Tyranny. There were probably some others that we discussed but honestly, just listen to the thing, okay? Okay.

Opening theme: "Shimmy Shimmy Ya" by Ol' Dirty Bastard

Closing theme: The Commander Blood credits music. Still haven't been able to find who wrote it or what it's actually called.

Do you all remember that episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation? Picard would have shown you such tenderness. That's literally all I remember about that episode, but I'm fairly certain it was the most important thing to happen maybe in the entire history of that show???

Luckily for you, I remembered to make a list of the games we talked about in no particular order, so good luck following along, suckers!

After a brief lament for our broken country, we talk about Zootopia, Doom, Hitman, Titanfall 2, Gears of War 4, Dishonored, Fallout 4, Hellgate: London (my personal favorite), more Skyrim, and Dark Souls II. How long has it been since we brought up a Souls game anyway? I don't remember. TOO LONG, I SAY.

The pot bellied pig grunts softly, hearing a scuffle. What are those llamas up to, it wonders? Should it say something? Maybe it is best to let rowdy llamas lie. 

We had a lot of ground to cover, so this is another long one. In our defense Matt and Aaron had lots of important content to cover, such as: What is espresso anyway? Gronkster, 666 Monster Lady, Dr Naomi Hunter, don't swallow your damn gum, important llama facts, Army of Darkness, Cheecho the pot-bellied pig, reset the internet, Alien Isolation, just straight up Alien talk, and Sigourney Weaver is a good actress, okay?

Also, it turns out Aaron fucked up how to find us on YouTube. Search Do Not Turn Off Your Console, or click this handy link.

Paul's daughter joins the podcast and boy oh boy does she have an OPINION to share. You maybe can hear her in the background? Such is the way of things.

Honestly, we recorded this a day ago and I can't really remember what all we talked about so uh... I think we talked about video games? Probably? Shit. I dunno. I now realize why we usually do these show notes directly after recording.

Oh shit! We talked some about Destiny, and uh.. uh... fuck, I lost it again.

You must not drink this ginger ale. It is too raw and real for you, it was never intended to be consumed. You must let it pass you by, and thank the gods that it never passed your lips. We have other things to discuss. Video games, perhaps. Perhaps you will find succor in this discussion.

Also discussed: Reverse Adult Snuggles, Deutschlandradio, Tissue talk, seltzer vs still, soda stories, gingerale mythbusters, Chappie, Streaming Video Content, Watts for days, double updates, Destiny, KOF XIV, SFV, antiquing. 

Here's the article on Vernor's Ginger Ale

Opening theme is Trap Legend of Zelda, Saria's Turn Up by BERTOXIUS RAW

Closing theme is Data and Picard by Pogo

Hey look, I can't be on the top of my game every time, okay? Sometimes you're going to get a bad title.

Paul returns to the podcast and brings with him Sam to talk Destiny: Rise of Iron, but not before a brief digression into Gears of War, Halo 5, Red Dead Redemption, and maybe Skyrim? I dunno.

Uh, I was supposed to put some links in here, wasn't I?

Did you know that Germany has a holiday to celebrate not being split into East and West anymore? Well you do now, and so does Aaron, who walked to work anyway. Fortunately between you and me, he could probably use the exercise, so it wasn't a big loss. Paul was feeling lazy, so Matt and Aaron took over again, and bring what is probably their most coherent podcast yet, which means that they actually talk about some video games!

What video games, you ask? Well, how about h a c k m u d? Or FFXV? Or some other stuff, like dinner times, Ric Flair, Cobra, Jeepers Creepers, Snakes on a Plane, Salty Bet, [adult swim], Inuyasha, Destiny, Hunter the Lynx, Hot Linux Distros, SFV, Melty Blood,  and CEOtaku?

Yes I know, not all of those were games. Shut up.I also know these aren't the usual intro and outros. Look, I still don't have my PC, okay? 

Opening: "Americans Abroad" - Against Me! New Wave

Wow, what happened at the beginning of that podcast? Did you all see our special guest, the new mascot of the Edmonton Oilers? Wasn't that weird and not at all rehearsed (no, really, it wasn't at all)? What a way to start a podcast about video games, right?


Discussed this week: Cheeto Chicken Fries, Destiny, Destiny, whatever the hell Aaron talked about, Destiny, Urien's asbestos dick, and some other stuff that I've already forgotten. I'll listen to this episode myself and we will find out together! Won't that be nice?
