    Via the beastcast, think it's kind of weird that NMS won't have gas giants and stuff.

    Like, I get you can't explore them physically, via getting out of the ship. But it would have still been rad to find gas giants, maybe with rings and just fly near them, maybe they could have had you be able to get stuff out of their rings, or skim their surface for some kinda gas resource, or land on their moons, or something.

    I dunno, just strikes me as a bummer cause gas giants be cool yo.

    I agree, it would have been nice for aesthetics, but I would imagine it was a practical decision. They probably didn't want the environmental generator to waste time and engine power creating content that won't significantly benefit the game.

    Well what benefits a game is very subjective. My favorite thing to do in Elite Dangerous is fly around space, find weird planets and space anomalies and scope them out. I don't even have the expansion that lets me land on planets. So for me knowing there is a lower amount of diversity in the astronomical bodies you will encounter is a bummer. For other people this is going to be a total non-factor though.

    It's not really though. Because they're the ones making the game, and they have pretty clear intentions about what the game is going to be doing. Like what you want is cool but it's very much not what they want the game to be.

    Well, yes?

    Sometimes what a person wants out of a game and what a developer wants out of a game are different things. That doesn't make either want somehow wrong.

    I am not sure what your point is here.

    EDIT: Japanese version it sounds like. I heard there's an english translation on Virtual Console, is that true?

    I was saying that I imagine the reason they chose not to include the feature was that it didn't align with their vision of what the game was going to be.

    i don't watch vinnyvania but has there ever been any mention as to why it's vinnyvania and not castlevinnya

    granted, vinnyvania is definitely much more fun to say, but less efficient portmanteaus just make me feel like they're leavin meat on the bone

    After the explosion of MaxFun bonus content last night, I'm absolutely drowning in podcasts this weekend.

    Should make packing the house up a little easier.

    they actually did talk about it!

    it's because the naming convention they use is [Feature Name]: [Game Name]

    so if it they went with CastleVinnya, the video would be named CastleVinnya: Castlevania, and they didn't like the way that looked

    They explained this at one point

    I think it was because it just sounded too similar when spoken aloud? And then you'd lose the alliterative aspect

    But make no mistake, Vinny suggested it

    RONDO OF BLOOD!

    EDIT: Japanese version it sounds like. I heard there's an english translation on Virtual Console, is that true?

    I THINK they just straight up plopped the Japanese TG16 version on the VC without translating it.

    But there's really minimal text in that game AFAIK so it shouldn't be a problem.

    Man, it's such a cheat that we never got the best pre-SOTN Castlevania until the Wii VC. That game is so good.

    And instead we got a terrible SNES port.

    It's downloadable if you have a Wii or Wii U.

    You'll need at least a Wiimote if you just have a Wii U though.

    Also if you have a PSP or Vita the remake of it, which also includes SOTN, is probably downloadable on the PSN store.

    My wife has greeted me twice by saying "Your mom went", giving me a heart attack each time.

    What she means to say is "she pooped, we need to get her cleaned up".

    This is a picture of my wife:

    God I love that someone came up with and made Ultimate Chicken Horse. Kind of tempted to buy it for the all TWA crew.

    I'm really surprised how much they changed about Ultimate Chicken Horse since the last time they played it

    And basically every single change makes it a much better game
