Please Do Not Turn Off Your Console (general)

That's right, it's niño de mayo, the Spanish holiday where we all reminisce about old video games. Come celebrate with us as we discuss Mass Effect 3, the Metal Gear series, the N64 and other celebrated titles. Plus we even snuck a little bit of industry news in there at the end.

Please do not harass the chicken. Thank you.

Have you seen that dude's hair? Tell me you've seen Guile's hair. That shit is perfect.

Aaron's back this week and the podcast is properly off the rails. There's some talk about betas as well, like the Overwatch beta and the Mirror's Edge beta! We are on the CUTTING EDGE. 

You know what else is on the cutting edge? Guile's hair. God DAMN

Opening theme music was Back to the Light, by Jun Fukuda, from Killer7. Closing theme music was Guile's Theme (SNES version), by Yoko Shimomura.

Aaron was absent, but Paul and Matt persevered through shit Skype calls and errors to bring you a new episode of Please Do Not Turn Off Your Console! Yes, I'm surprised that we didn't fuck up the audio track as well.

Anyway, we talk a little about Dark Souls III, the DooM multiplayer beta, just how hobby grade Battleborne is, and just for you, that one person who wants to know, some hot work desk decoration tips.

Oh man I hope this doesn't screw up at the last second.

It is Julia's birthday! Julia is Paul's daughter. 

We talked about some video games and tried an absolutely vile cookie.

Not in a bad way, mind you, we just went out and discovered there are no more mountains to climb. We have seen the peak of videogames, and it is Miitomo. What are you even doing listening to this thing? Oh, you came to hear about other video games that are not Miitomo for some reason?

Well fortunately for you, we played some stuff that wasn't Miitomo for a bit. Stuff like the Doom beta, and Unreal Tournament, and oh yeah Hyper Light Drifter is which would totally be the best game ever if not for the fact that Miitomo also came out. Plus, we finally weigh in on Virtual Reality because now there are Virtual Reality things actually out and with money costs?

While Matty Business is away watching grown men in tights (or sweet-ass Jordans, as the case may be), Aaron and Paul hold down the fort by talking about Dark Souls III, which they got through totally legitimate means, they promise (no really we paid money and everything). Also discussed: Street Fighter V's new update, Killer Instinct season 3, and another failed attempt at discussing Monster Hunter 4, which we apparently can't talk about with anything approaching coherence.

Tell your friends that we are a podcast about video games!

Awwww yeaaaaaah, it's the sexiest episode, and we're here to seduce you with talk of Dark Souls, Street Fighter, anime titty and other suitably interesting delights (including some important cat talk. Plus, Sam makes her triumphant return because it turns out there are some similarities between Destiny and The Division, so we needed our Destiny expert to lay it all out for us.

Aaron promises he's just very tired and not drunk, but you never know. Also there's more audio weirdness! Boy howdy is that getting to be a tiresome occurrence. Oh yeah, and there's some *heavy sigh* wrestling talk. But it's cool, it features Riff Raff. You know, the rapper.

We would like to go to bed but we would like to party and we do not want to do either so we are going to let you know how little we approve. We are Paul's baby and we will be heard.

But once we calm down the hosts discuss the Division, some fighting game stuff (including MKXL, SFV, KI and Yatagarasu), that whole Caleco Chameleon business and.... more, I think? I don't know. I'm just a baby who's tired of using the royal We already.

The gang's all here and you've been presented with an extra long episode because we had a lot of ground to cover. Aaron's been in an arcade the last few weeks and you best believe he's got some things to say about the experience. Also did you know you can play Street Fighter both in arcades and in your own homes (and there was a movie too)? Because you can and we're going to talk a lot about that! 

Also on the docket, some Grim Dawn discussion, some Dark Souls discussion, Aaron gets grumpy about the response to things that are free and also play okay, and, starting at about... 1:12:45 we discuss Firewatch's plot for the rest of the show, so if you're avoiding spoilers on that one stop early.

Opening song is Exile - The Next Door - Indestructible (English Version) from the Street Fighter IV soundtrack, closing song is Ibuki Stage - Twilight from the Street Fighter III OST.
