    Ok so the work hug question at the end of the latest MBMBaM caused me psychic damage

    If I was in that situation all the bones would instantly melt out of my body in shame

    What was the question?

    Dude's boss managed to get him vacation time even though he didn't have any vacation days left

    It was at the end of a graveyard shift so when the boss came to shake his hand he panicked and hugged him instead

    And to to show his gratitude, what he said was

    "thanks for getting me off"

    At what point does the waypoint spoilercast switch from Hamilton to Knives Out? I just want to skip to the Knives Out part.

    I dont have a time stamp but they make it very apparent when they are going to switch to talking about Knives Out, and dont start in on spoilers for a few minutes besides.

    It's absolutely amazing

    I don't know what the online scene looks like for it these days

    I am not very good at videogames, but I slightly obsessed over Titanfall 2 for months and eventually got kinda decent at it

    And had more fun playing a multiplayer game than I thought possible

    Endless loop of kamikaze Ronin was incredible, I don't know if they patched that out or not

    The most fragile Titan could be the most deadly if you set it up correctly and had a moderate amount of skill and luck

    You could turn into a bomb with a sword and it was amazing

    I definitely had a thing with FatT where it took me a while to realize there might be people who I don't perceive to be embodying their characters very well but which act them exceptionally well

    Ali and Jack, for instance, really commit to their characters as far as the choices they make in the world, but they don't really 'convey' their characters via emotion or tone as much as they do through gameplay

    Art though is absolutely a person who emotes in wildly different ways depending on the character he plays; you can absolutely hear how different Grand Magnificent is to Sovereign Immunity just from the tone he uses, the idiosyncrasies of his speech patterns

    and then there's Keith, who just plays different versions of Keith. Which is fine! Sometimes you just know you have a very particular thing you bring to whatever you do, but that thing is so good that it just works; it's the Jack Nicholson effect.

    the confrontation between keith and art in the last episode was so so so so good. I'm happy to be back listening to friends at the table, i should go back and listen to the billion hours I have skipped. I also just started giving to their patreon so there's...a lot.

    I also listened to the first Road to Partizan, and there's a part where they're figuring stuff out about the Hypha and Austin makes a discovery
    about a term that's important to Counter/Weight, and I got chills over my entire body.

    As far as the online goes, Titanfall 2 was one of the free PlayStation Plus games a little bit ago, so there was a decent boost in population on PS4 for a bit there

    One thing I will say about Friends at the Table that has drawn me in this season is that it really does seem like the players are trying to mechanically play well/succeed at the same time as trying to craft an interesting story. Which hasn't always been the case, and from my perspective is harder to get invested in when it seems like they're trying to fail because they think it's an interesting story beat.

    I can't believe it took six seasons of Friends at the Table for them to figure out they should put cheat sheets of all the people/terms/organizations in the episode descriptions.

    "straightforward, serious story with the goofy shit at the edges" really works for DOOM just like it did for the current Hitmans.

    Re Titanfall 2, I don’t think I’m ever gonna touch the multiplayer. There be monsters.
    the whole travel sequence was extremely fucking dope, though

    They're so useful.

    I listen to most episodes with those pulled up in one tab and their character sheets up in another.

    I've been listening to Critical Role, I couldn't get into season 1 because it started so far into their campaign and with such shitty equipment. But season 2? All in. Its funny, because its similar but also totally different from Adventure Zone and I really like both but for totally different reasons

    That MBMBAM question about conflict-less Barbie play really resonated with me

    My son wants me to play Spider-Man with him, wherein Spider-Man and Electro are friends and go on treasure hunts together

    (but then Spider-Man ties Electro up saying he’ll swing him at some zombies)

    For folks who bounced off Disco Elysium due to (valid) chafing against its initial abrasiveness, but who are curious about what it Means to folks who dug it, the Patrick/Austin spoilercast on Waypoint Radio might be worth a listen

    They don't let it off the hook for those rough edges, and they are often critical of the game, but they do a great job of exploring what makes this weird, risky, sometimes-unpleasant work of art so compelling and vital and current and strange and beautiful.
