Please Do Not Turn Off Your Console

Matt's out, so we're taking this show back to its roots tonight, with some honest to god talk about video games. Specifically, we've got some hot new Street Fighter V talk, a ton of DOOM talk, more about Overwatch and a couple of games set in the Warhammer Fantasy universe. Plus, Aaron briefly freaks out about moving and we talk about what happens when we concentrate real hard.

Be sure to stay for the end as we probably foreshadow a Terrible Decision!

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.

That's right, big papa knows what you want and/or need. You need pizza.

And once you've got that pizza? Once that need is satisfied? You need a podcast about video games. Allow us to be that podcast about video games. We talk Overwatch and its uh... many different expressions of fan interest, Total Warhammer, 360 degree videos, and the games of Suda 51. Magnifico.

Aaron is sick and vaguely out of his mind, but by god a new Doom game came out so we're all ready for the coverage you expect, which is to talk about old computer games and computers and the ways we used to make them sometimes catch fire. Plus we discuss Rage, which I'm beginning to feel like got a bad rap. 

Also, Matt betrays us for the love of another podcast, which is actually pretty good. You can find that here. Can the formation of a podcasting empire be far behind?

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

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!
