Topic of the Week

With #GamerGate still happening on the battlefields of Twitter, Reddit, Facebook, and so on – we have to continue talking about it. We mostly try to focus on the editorial we recently published, and the repercussions of big gaming media either dying out or being blacklisted by the mainstream gaming community entirely.

You can enjoy our podcast below, or you can download it here (right click and save as).

To get this thing published ASAP – I didn’t have time to get songs to feature in the podcast. Sorry! We are very close to getting an official opening/theme song, which I’ll be revealing very soon.

    Another great podcast guys, the gamergate is still going strong & I think the gutter press of kotaku & others are cooling down the gamers debate.

    But I too think it won’t last & gamergate is here to stay.

    Here she is the big girl with her sis.

    Oh nice I was wondering were you got your avatar from.

  • 33

    I get what you’re saying about Castlevania (22min~) but I would love to play a proper Castlevania Musou.

  • nonscpo

    What’s up with the download link? Also how long before we can get this podcast on Itunes and Stitcher?

  • I’ve been trying to get around to it……. also I SWEAR the DL link just refuses to work, even though it’s the EXACT same location on our FTP server. So damn annoying – thank you for pointing that out. I promise I’ll get it all ironed out ASAP ><

  • Carl B.

    Oh my god is that cute.


    You the man, alistair! :)

  • nonscpo

    Nice its working now, by the way props for using the Hot Shots scene clip with that title.

  • Alistair

    After the next podcast I post up her doing shcooling as a teacher.

  • Alistair

    I found this it was posted yesterday the 9th neogaf doesn’t hold back when they banned people eh when you banned some-one it use to be in a good proper manner.

    That be tells what the reason for the banned with out a attack by saying sarcastic things.

    Another ban from neogaf told the banner he/she was a pedo.

    These things are still going on it reach the peak now this SJWs been bitching for years & now it reach to a head.

  • Kiujazi

    -has plenty of free time- I think its time for a podcast marathon.

  • Alistair

    Didn’t last long did it, now kotaku is calling us perv as you virtual touch anime boobs did they have to use the word perv, yes it possible it is, but yet it another fuel for SJWs cause & click baiting.

    Like they not learn they lesson from gamer-gate & Zoe-gate lol

  • craptonium

    Who gives a damn about gamergate, Craptaku and etc.?
    Just play the games you like and ignore the social justice idiots who call you a perv for not being a sexually insecure individual,
    while hypocritically those same SJWs should be supporting sexual liberation which the LGBT for instance is all about.
    Just a bunch of Orwellian thought police trying to impose and force their own subjective brand of “justice” on the Internet and the world. History teaches us a lot about people with an obsessive compulsive justice disorder and Messiah Complexes.

    Keep calm and play away.

  • Dm Gray

    Ignore them and they WILL win.
    They’ve already gained support from major devs and celebrities.
    Without a reckoning their bigotry will become the standard.

  • artemisthemp

    I agree with you.
    12 is clearly to old for JRPG, we need 9 year old with size C tits and slender body and they must only wear a G-string and… Some Bra that hardly cover anything.

    Note: We can’t have 7 year old because, I don’t feel like playing CoD in my JRPG

  • artemisthemp

    The problems I have with Hard games like Dark Souls or shitty games like Lightning Returns is that, they require you tend all the time and don’t give you a chance to relax, which means you can actually get more stress coming out of a game than when you went in.

    This is why JPRG like HDN is so good since, you don’t need to think a lot and it have a enable story (Don’t ask me about Victory or Idol PP as I haven’t Platinum them yet)
