Mario Party seems like a soul-destroyingly bad game on the Giant Bomb 50 turn videos.

Wombat was right about DeNA. After 400 episodes it's still amusing when Cheapy automatically assumes Wombat is wrong about something, when in fact he's correct and it's Cheapy who is wrong. Especially when it's something to do with Japan.

DeNA Co., Ltd. (株式会社ディー・エヌ・エー Kabushikigaisha Dī-Enu-Ē?) (pronounced "DNA") is a provider of mobile portal and e-commerce websites based in Japan.

I started watching Agent Carter because of Wombat, and it was great.  Thanks, Wombat.

Amiibo discussion is more boring than talking about slow cooking.

My back hurts and my don't have an ass wash... WAAAAHHHHH

 

The Bitter JewCast strikes again. Can't wait for next week when Cheapy and Wombat talk about more reasons for not playing games.

 

This show used to be good. Now it's just two bitter assholes complaining about life. The bitterness is starting to rub off on Shipwreck and that sucks.

You sound a lot more bitter than they do.

Seriously though, you are right. Sony has zero excuses for having poor service when they are charging for it. Its so weird that no one is willing to call Sony out for their shitty service and game troubles. I no longer buy Sony products after the PS3. I had mine for a year and got rid of it quickly. I just don't trust Sony.

That's really funny considering the PS3 was far less likely to have problems compared to the 360 with its Red Ring of Death. Where were Microsoft's "strict QA standards" when the 360 was being made?  Or when FEZ was released with a game breaking bug?

 

Making comments about PSN being basic despite not having a PS3 or a PS4 and therefore having no way of knowing what features it now offers, and then repeatedly calling other people "fanboys" is rather ironic.  Don't let the way this console generation is going make you bitter.

apparently you guys also didn't seem to notice that Nintendo recently beat forecasts, made a 2nd quarter profit and is one track for a FY profit.. but I guess gloom and doom makes better conversation. 

When facts don't support your narrative, it's easier to ignore those facts.

NPD discussion starts around 1:04:30.

 

All that Sony advertising for Destiny paid off to the tune of a 90% hardware sales advantage in September.

I like how wombat said that cheapy was being racist. The real racist is wombat. Bringing out outdated japanese references. Mr Miyagi? Get this guy off the show. Can do some racist jew statements?

Wombat's gonna wombat.  Honestly, I was more surprised at Shipwreck's reaction to Cheapy explaining how some common parts of English don't exist in Japanese.

Japanese is a syllabic language, meaning all consonants apart from a final n must be followed by a vowel. This is most noticeable when an English word finishes with a consonant that is not n, for example booto (boat) and hoomu (home/ short for platform).

Another issue which is common to all nationalities and is a significant one here is sounds and sound distinctions which don’t exist in L1 but do in the English words that the Japanese word comes from. One common example is th, which is usually transformed into s (e.g. saado- third) or z (e.g. mazaa – mother). This can cause problems even for a Japanese learner who can pronounce thatch and this as a British person or American might, as they may remain unaware that the Japanese word shieta (theatre) is supposed to have that th sound when not speaking Japanese.

Yes, of course I'm aware the nub is used for Monster Hunter. The discussion was about if it made sense to redesign the 3ds and add a stick for one or two games that will support it?

Wombat sure wasn't aware of it, so it might have been worth you mentioning Monster Hunter 4G somewhere in here.

 

Wombat: This is two extra shoulder buttons and the second analog stick

 

Cheapy: But what games are gonna use that?  No one, I mean....

Wombat: That's what I'm saying, what's the point of this?  It is, it is a big change.

Cheapy: Nintendo thinks it's going to sell another fourty millions 3DSes I think

Wombat: But why? For what? What is the application of these two extra [buttons] and the second analog stick?

Shipwreck: So you can play games like any other console.
 

Wombat: But what games?

 

 

I think it does make sense for Nintendo to slap in some extra components (that are very cheap) that will make the newest installment of an extremely popular game play better.  The last Monster Hunter sold 4.1 million copies.

The new 3DS discussion was painful to listen to.  Wombat kept asking what the new version was designed for with its second analog stick/nubbin and two new shoulder buttons.  But even the guy who actually lives in Japan had no clue.

I bought a refurb Wii U after E3 for $200.  I really like the console and the OS, and my wife likes the $4 Art Academy app.  But there's no game I actually want to play on it till Bayonetta 2 comes out since I have no interest in the Mario and Zelda franchises.

 

Hopefully Fatal Frame V gets released in America.

Cheapy is home all day long while his wife works, but he never makes dinner?

FYI, Akham Knight takes place in Gotham City proper. They just kept Arkham for the branding.

And I agree with the guys that it's really dumb for them to do so.  Batman is the brand, not Arkham.
