1.  Oh jeez sports talk. Didn't see that coming. Got to read those descriptions more carefully.

2.  Congrats Aspro for the masturbation joke of the year.

3.  The Blesinski bit was interesting. At some point we need to have a thread about who the most famous America/Western developers are. I can only think of 4 off of the top of my head.... and one sucks ass.

4. Interesting take on RE6. I still don't want to play it, but in all fairness I didn't want to play it the first time around. Aspro's talk about the 10 GB limit dictating his demo downloads was particularly interesting though. Really puts that into perspective.

Listening now for Re6

  • NFL time? WTF? You want to lose listeners? lol
  • RE6, Destructoid was the only TRUE review cheeky
  • RE will sell fuckloads, even ORC sold well.
  • Wii U RE6? They would need to fix it like Razors Edge IMO
  • Why are FIFA sales spiking?
  • Vader isn't buying Skylanders? Fuck, there goes my purchase
  • Romney sucks balls, after what he said in that secret recording
  • Vader re6 impressions. Sounds nuts. Will a random ambulance try and run me over? WTF?
  • Cars randomly running you over? Ewwwwwwwwwwwww, dude that is stupid
  • Vader this random crazy sounds a lot like Disaster Day of Crisis
  • It would be better to make a really polished 15-18 hour game IMO
  • "Have you ever been to Sizzler?" lol
  • Aspro, if the devs had said all this before in interviews, maybe. But they didn't, so no I don't think so. Interesting theory though.
  • Hit detection would annoy me, I like 1 hit headshots
  • You're in a square? Now you're dodging? crying Awww fubar
  • Camera is FUBAR? This sounds like a mess. crying
  • !!!!!!! The camera doesn't move with you like in RE4? surprise
  • Chris's is like GOW or COD? Ah crap
  • Tutorial is garbage, no instruction manual, difficult to 'get' the game. You are describing a nightmare to me.
  • A barrage of random QTEs?! OMG
  • Rope climbing, ewwwwwwwwwwwwww
  • Reviews on sites are by different people, but more than that when you compare a game it could be against other games in the franchise, or other games in genre etc. You simply cannot compare scores between some games. Tetris as a 9/10 vs RE4 as a 9/10? Not comparable.
  • I get what you are saying about polished boring games. But then you liked Bioshock.... and Batman AC cheeky
  • On the single platform question, what about portables? Would you eschew a portable?

Thanks for listening GG.

FIFA sales have spiked because of the monster install base due to the long console cycle.  It's why EA still released sport games on the PS2 up until last year.  LOLUnit sales of PS2 last year was 4.1 million. Sorry, was looking up something and found that.

It's why if I was the EA board I'd be reaming the management for not having an NBA game.  Even if it is #2 to NBA2K it is still hundreds of millions of dollars left on the table.

LOL Thanks Robio. Yeah, me and vader should probably talk sports BEFORE the show.

Thank you GG!! Yeah you would hate RE6. On the review scores thing, in the case of GS VanOrd reviewed both RE6 and ORC personally so it should have a direct comparison. Overall though I mean the numbers and games within that range should have a general level of quality between them.

Politics and sport? I don't feel so bad for repeatedly forgetting to listen now. Maybe I should continue forgetting... Nyaa

I tried to skip the sports segment but the player would not move forward. lol

Don't thank me, than YOU guys for making podcasts. I would love to listen to more, I think keeping the length to round about an hour makes them more friendly. Great impressions on RE6 and now I understand much more where you are coming from. It's flawed but still has fun to found, but it's inconsistent and not as polished as it should be. And mechanically, if those things are important to you, it may become too annoying to forgive?

I think with RE, with 4 and 5 we became used to a certain level of consistency, so this game being up and down and mixing things up so much is playing with our emotions. I will have to get this game, I have no doubt, I mean, c'mon it's RE. But I will be going in afraid.

If you listen to the show here on the site you can skip forward dragging the progress meter forward (rather than clicking further down the track). So, click and hold mouse button, then drag ahead.

"Is he talking about masturbation?"

Lolz.

“exactly”

Says Vader knowingly about PES. LOL

"Edge is not a reliable source":

http://au.gamespot.com/forums/topic/29301555/edge-magazine-exposed.-rockstar-too.-freelance-writer-says-they-alter-reviews

To me 5 sounds like the most “honest” score for the game. Sounds like it’s pretty evenly stocked with good and bad points, thus 5 is the logical score, no?

Maybe I missed it, but I think you missed the most interesting thing about the metacritic, and that is the huge difference in 360 and PS3 score. In fact you used the 360 score, Aspro as if another one did not exist. Nyaa

I'd compliment you on a 'cast well done, but it was devoted to sport and RE6, so I won't. Nyaa
