Can't wait to listen, but why is Cheapy so down on the WiiU? I personally love mine. It has some really fun exclusives.

Michonne isn't from Walking Dead The Game season 1 or 2. She's one of the most popular characters from the comic book and TV show, so they made a game for her. The Walking Dead Telltale games take place in the comic book world btw. Since ship is a comic book guy now, you should pick it up. Vol 1. is pretty cheap or the Omnibus of the first 80 issues is like $35ish.

 

Also, the Walking Dead Michonne contest is over. It was really really successful, and winners were selected.

 

Lastly, I'd get a six year old a Refurbished 2DS for $60 on the Nintendo store.

Shit on VR to the point of calling it a Kinect, then proceed to praise Battlefront? Fuck off.

For new releases you didn't mention the bizarre Reagan Gorbachev. Shipwreck is slipping.

Good episode, the only gripe I have is that it caused my lunchbreak to pass by too quickly. wtf.

The Fire Emblem situation isn't that difficult to understand.
It's pretty much a Zelda Oracle equivalent with a 3rd game that is download only.

I think these new Fire Emblem games will attract a lot of new players. Not as hard core as the old games and it's only the second game to have the relationship building system.

If I didn't have a 3DS XL I got for cheap from the trading section, I'd buy that refurbished 2DS off Nintendo's eBay store. Wombat, you should probably get one of those because kids can't be trusted with hinges. The 2ds is a pretty comfortable device BTW. At least your son can join your daughter's Kirby Klub?

I don't think there are any cavemen on staff at Ubisoft, so I'm pretty sure someone else wrote the story for Farcry Primal.

 

BUT! There is a whole genre of books called "non fiction!" There are new, exciting things to learn. Maybe Frontline will do an episode on the history of storytelling some day.

 

Also the Fire Emblem situation is very straightforward, and there are about 800 articles on Kotaku all devoted to the simple concept that "one version of FE is harder than the other, and they both have different stories." That's really about it.

Can people lay off of shipwreck, different parts of the country and world pronounce things completely different, its not odd to hear more than one pronunciation of something. This doesnt mean you jump right to being rude because you dont "agree" with the way he says something.

Dont worry ship, we still love you

Shipwreck doesn't like learning despite being an engineer, ironic? But we shouldn't pick on Shipwreck too much, like we do with Wombat and his jokes. We should be happy for his different take on things.

Battlefront was my most highly anticipated game of last year, now I wouldn't buy it for £20 with the season pass. The game is just a shell and adding the occasional new map or skin isn't going to make it any better. It's core is just soulless.

 

Lol @ Cheapy not even acknowledging when Wombat suggested they watch Batman v Superman together.

I appreciate how brutally honest you are about VR instead of fanboying all over it like the rest of the "gaming media." Like Shipwreck stated, it's a "lifestyle change" and it's going to be a miserable failure. Unless someone wants to dump HALF A BILLION dollars into releasing and marketing a headset like Microsoft did with Kinect, there will be no software for it and it will not sell well. When a VR rig costs more than a console, there's not a market for it except with hardcore gadget freaks and gamers who stay on the cutting edge (buying every console, $2k gaming PC, etc). Maybe in 10 years...

 

Now, on to something lighter. I actually picked up a "New"3DS (stupid Nintendo and their insane naming schemes) this week for the first time. Never had a lot of interest in the XL, but finally found a deal on the smaller one that I couldn't pass up. I expected the 3D to be pretty gimmicky, but I'm pleasantly surprised by how cool it looks. Combined with the C-stick and the eye tracking to stabilize it (I think those are both "New"3DS features), it makes for a pretty solid little handheld and now that the 1st party library is deep enough and prices have come down a bit ($30 instead of $40 for a lot of the Mario titles), it's a bit easier to stomach for a CheapAssGamer like me. After seeing the 3D, I am glad I never cheaped out and got a 2D.

(loooove you, Ship, you be you <3)

 

Wombat, thank you for continuing to call out Shipwreck on his mispronunciations of common phrases. I'm from the Midwest, but I had no idea that Cincinnati was a bizarro world where Bizen rhymes with Tyson, sawl means you saw something, and the word Ms. (miz) does not exist. He never misses an opportunity to call you out on your pronunciation of Mario, so his comeuppance is fully warranted.

I think that's fair. The problem is that Shipwreck talks down to Wombat when he does the same thing. Additionally, Shipwreck never wants to admit he is wrong. Why would we agree with something he is doing wrong. You're either right or wrong. It's M. Bison not M.Bizon. Then his explanation of M.Tyzon just makes it worse. Lol

So an engineer is impossibly confused by the Fire Emblem Fates set-up?  Why not just say you don't care enough to take 5 seconds to figure it out?

Unless Wombat was referencing a previous / out-of-date sale I can't find Borderlands on Xbox One for $24 anywhere. If I'm missing it please hook me up with a link!
