Please Do Not Turn Off Your Console (general)

They said it couldn't be done. They said the show would fall apart without Paul to be the anchor for Aaron and Matt's rambling ways. That all would fall to ruin and the only signs that a podcast had actually happened would be an incoherent mess of shouting and a window into madness that overstayed its welcome. In the end, they said, the podcasting software itself would be the only thing that could stop them.

They were probably right.

Also discussed: Candy corn, beer for sale, suicide, more very special episodes, keeping it fatherly, Shasta McNasty, Xanga, Action Bronson, documentaries, Bojack, Life is Strange, UBERMOSH, laundering money, envelope theft, rap non sequiturs, PS4 pro, Windows Pro, upgrading your laptop, technology dads, and weddings. 

No opening or closing theme, because Aaron forgot he didn't have those files on this computer. I guess technically he could have grabbed them off his backup drive, but that is more effort than he is willing to expend this evening.

Did you hear about this? Did anyone see this? Nintendo made an endless runner using the Mario franchise! Too bad they got beat to the punch by about a million other folks, am I right?

*adjusts tie*

We've got a really great show for you tonight folks, Aaron Poppleton is here! He's gonna tell us exactly how urgent his need to evacuate is. Paul Poppleton is here to talk about World of Warcraft and the state of his bedroom! Sony is here to provide.. well, they're sure it's a great idea and we should trust them, right?

We'll be right back after the break with Puzzles the Flatulent Feline!

Opening theme: "Back to the Light" - Jun Fukuda, Killer7

Closing theme: "Rave On" - Masafumi Takada, Killer7

What could it mean? A new Metal Gear game? A new Metal Gear collection of an older Metal Gear game? Or maybe we're just back to podcasting and getting our sea legs, which are not the sort of legs you use whilst on a trolley but still might come in helpful! They are the sort of legs that helped us bring a new podcast to you, specifically you. Not you, though. We're not sure where you came from.

Discussed this week: World of Warcraft. That's pretty much it, but I'm sure Aaron probably talked about Pathologic again. He can't resist it! I certainly don't know, because he recorded his dispatch separately from the rest of us and I did NOT listen to it before splicing it into the middle of this episode like some mad Doctor Frankenstein (That's Frahnkenshteen).

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.

Aaron has disappeared from our lives and our country and gone to live with the Huns. We persevere, because it is our nature to struggle on in the face of oblivion. 

We also talk about World of Warcraft! The Whopperito! Germans! HyperLight Drifter! Poop (That last one is always in there, isn't it)!

Also, perhaps Aaron is not gone if we hold his memory in our hearts. Or if he sends a dispatch from the Old World and we splice it into the middle of the podcast! Perhaps that happened and didn't get fucked up somehow.

We worked very hard on this one, so please to enjoy.

It's important to rate these things accurately, you know. Like would you call it a four? Or a three? Maybe you put in extra effort and it is groceries, who knows? We set out on Aaron's last American Podcast to discuss the difficult issues, because we aren't afraid.

Plus: moving boys, interview questions, rating systems, Pathologic (look it's Aaron's last show for a while, let him have this), 4kTV, The Nintendo NX, and Let it Die.

A powerful new episode of Please Do Not Turn Off Your Console deals with the tough issues of gun violence, racism, alcoholism, and whatever else we could dredge up from early 90s sitcoms. Look, it's sweeps week, that's when you have to tackle the real issues that the kids need to know about.

Is it leather? Faux leather? Who can tell? It sure looks pretty comfortable, though. I'd wear it, is what I'm saying. Also discussed: Lucky and Wild, The Galloping Ghost, broken cabinets, Mark of the Wolves, lots of people watching Street Fighter, Steam Links, and a brief moving update.
