    Watching them play Pokemon in this quick look is fucking depressing. Jeff and Brad being cynical as all hell about a light critter-catching rpg.

    At some point, Brad, if you don't care about animations, sound design, story, or art direction, why bother playing video games? Go play chess and stop lying to yourself.

    So this morning I started watching the VLR spoilercast and Patrick mentioned a secret ending

    so I scrambled to play through it on my way to work, including playing while walking in the rain, so I could get back to the spoilercast by the time I got to work

    I've mentioned this before, but the problem with Sonic is sometimes he's not going fast

    He should never not be going fast

    Let's review my guesses. (still talking about VLR)
    Sigma is some kind of clone or fake of the person K is. Had that backwards.
    K is Santa's son. I really stuck by the idea that the person Sigma turned out to be was Santa. I'm a little disappointed the game didn't cover what happened to him.
    Tenmyouji is Junpei. Had that locked down as soon as Quark told me their backstory and they showed us Tenmyouji was carrying Akane's photo.
    The Game's purpose is to try to undo the Radical-6 pandemic through quantum physics somehow. That becomes super obvious about halfway through.
    The bunker/Schrodinger's box is actually located on Mars. Those fuckers. I based that on the mention of the Mars training mission facility. I assumed it was identical to where the game was taking place but that the game was in the real thing. So close yet so far away.
    No significant guesses as to Phi's secrets or the identity of Zero Sr. Actually I sort of suspected Sigma was Zero basically only because I expected a twist. The game didn't even tell me who Phi was though if that's even relevant.
    Brother is Ace. Still think that, expect to be confirmed in the third game.

    Yeah I have trouble listening to them talk about Pokemon

    it's just...they don't seem willing to give it a chance. they even seemed less cynical about Skylanders.

    I'm proud of Patrick for giving it a chance

    He often seems the most likely to dismiss something purely because its popular.

    But you know, what Brad said is very interesting with regards to a text-based adventure. Now I kinda want to try making a text-based pokemon

    Patrick is also super willing to try new things. He picked up Fire Emblem and Zero Escape purely blindly recently and ended up loving both.

    Yeah I know, I think that has opened him up to more weird stuff, which is great

    I just wish he still weren't so openly derisive of AAA games a lot of the time, but it's definitely nice to have someone on the team to bring up small games

    Speaking of which, a coworker who hasn't played games in like 4 years asked me about Super Hot out of the blue today.

    Weird.

    Patrick is also the Great Dishonored Defender We Need on the Bomb crew which seems a little out of character but endearing.

    I like that Jeff is cycnical because he's funny too

    And then Vinny is anti-cynical and is also funny

    They make a great team

    Brad doesn't have a sense of humor to take the bite off of his cynicism. He just comes off as grumpy and tired of everything and hating his job.

    I think Dishonored is an okay game

    The whole time I played it, I had no strong feelings one way or the other

    I enjoyed Dunwall City Trials more than I did the story of Dishonored

    I'm not going to say that Dishonored is bad

    But I don't understand it at all

    They build these incredibly elaborate areas to sneak around and then make you a combat god

    I think I beat that game in like 6 or 7 hours and never really saw any reason or incentive to engage with the sneaking at all

    this is true for pretty much all stealth games nowadays

    i felt the same way about metal gear solid for a long time. But if you actually try to stealth and don't give in to just murderfacing your way through every level these games are very rewarding.

    Well, my first playthrough was no-kill stealth, so my experience seems to be vastly different from yours
    Either way you handle the objectives, the art direction and world building are pretty damn great

    I think Deus Ex: HR did a better job balancing it. You could take on one guy okay, after that you felt pretty fragile. In Dishonored, you are just a murder machine. Yeah you can stealth, but it's actually harder and more time consuming than just mowing everyone down.

    Not that I know anything about grafix but I would think HD-ifying Wind Waker would be easier than hd-ifying other games because of the simple textures
