Rob's awesome - and so is his podcast.   It's like an oasis in the desert of PC culture.  Kinda like Stern, but with more weed.

I know I won't be talking about it anymore, can't say the same for John... maybe a few mins from guests or him would be the only...

[Today at 03:18:01 AM] Tedakin: will we be treated to a new sane gamer episode this week?

[March 28, 2017, 07:53:32 PM] TigerClaw: VGO Stream is up, tune in at

[March 28, 2017, 07:52:36 PM] TigerClaw: VGO Stream is LIVE!

[March 28, 2017, 07:46:06 PM] bmullz: did Matt play Mass Effect?  NO WAY!

[March 28, 2017, 07:29:05 PM] CoastalMichelle: hmmmm matt effect mass effect Wink

[March 28, 2017, 06:50:50 PM] TigerClaw: What can we expect on VGO tonight?

[March 28, 2017, 03:35:32 PM] CoastalMichelle: i already do that daily, i'm good

[March 28, 2017, 03:33:04 PM] Tedakin: you should probably still stay horizontal the rest of the day with your feet up... we don't want you passig out

[March 28, 2017, 03:29:19 PM] Tedakin: Michelle I hope you slept well after that traumatizing experience

[March 28, 2017, 02:36:19 PM] ShawnXI: Nintendo needs AAA games fast for the Switch to survive so they are porting games over. This has the adverse effect of making them less than optimized for the new hardware.

[March 28, 2017, 02:35:47 PM] ShawnXI: In my opinion Splatoon 2, like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, is just a port of the Wii U game with new weapons/maps and a few enhancements for the new hardware.

[March 28, 2017, 02:25:45 PM] CoastalMichelle: It's clear we see what this system can do, docked, 720 60 fps seems to be max, or a little higher and up to 30... I don't blame them for trying for 60 on a 'shooter'

[March 28, 2017, 02:24:43 PM] CoastalMichelle: 720*

[March 28, 2017, 02:21:22 PM] CoastalMichelle: Splatoon 2 runs at 548p hand held and 730p docked, John may need a nap too, that's rough after screaming about how it would be 720 and 1080, and Zelda wasn't because it was designed for Wii U 

[March 28, 2017, 12:11:08 AM] Tedakin: Sounds to me like you had a pretty rough decade. You should probably lie down.

[March 27, 2017, 11:23:14 PM] CoastalMichelle: watching john stream mass effect was top 10 most painful moments of the decade foe me Wink

[March 27, 2017, 07:23:24 PM] Sworen:

[March 27, 2017, 07:08:51 PM] bmullz: That scene in Alien really fukked me up when I was  a kid,

[March 27, 2017, 07:02:46 PM] Tedakin: nice. i love it

[March 27, 2017, 06:56:24 PM] bmullz: watching now

[March 27, 2017, 06:56:08 PM] bmullz: Of course you do.   Great flick, Ted, thanks!

[March 27, 2017, 06:53:18 PM] Tedakin: .... which i have....

Man, what a fun show last night.  Chat was on fire.  John always seems to sharpen his wit when Rob is guesting, as well.   

I think I can do without hearing about Zelda ever again, though.

Helloooo Saltek.   Nice to digitally meet you.

I like the Reddit thing, but it kinda makes me feel like I'm renting space in someone else's house.

I know, right?  Mich yelling at John to STFU during her 10 sec. spotlight was fuking awesome, though.  John was outta his element.

I watched John stream Zelda.  If you think they took Zelda in a different direction, you might need a compass, Jumble.

I'm angry. 

I, obviously, expected too much from Nintendo's ability to release a coherent, contemporary, and competent console this generation.   After the WiiU's abject failure, I expected Nintendo to learn from their mistakes and release something other than an under-powered toy.  I don't see the Switch as anything but a WiiU redesign, but I was promised a new generation.  I feel like I'm getting pissed on but told it's just raining.  I'm angry because I love Nintendo, and they have no idea what they're doing.

Ahhh, great show.   

Matt sounded really confident last night.  Like he finally left home and became a Real Boy!

I suffered through this show for years before John finally got a PS3.   Then he acted like he discovered the goddamn thing.    There're just some of the golden moments of VGO.  I would expect nothing less of his discovering the PS4. 

John's recent discovery of the Metal Gear series is now one of my all-time favorite VGO moments.  A game originating on a Nintendo console, ignored by John for 20 years, is discovered with furious engagement.  I was, literally, bent over my desk laughing while listening to john read the Metal Gear plot synopsis.   Everyone should go listen to that Extra show which was just a couple of weeks ago.  Classic John - leaning into his own faults and playing them for comedy.  Bravo!

Do we get a new theme song if we buy the new logo shirt?

Honestly, I don't know why you guys love those clickety-clack keyboards.  They're annoying.  reminds me of my IBM XT from 1987.

The rainbow backlights are cool, though.

Hellooooo!    Say, how's that Elija Craig?  I've never sampled the barrel proof.  that's some strong stuff.

Sweet.  what's with the coaster that goes nowhere?  Is that a kiddie ride or something?
15  Outside the Box / Waaay Off Topic / Re: Amazon return story on: January 26, 2017, 07:29:02 PM
Bought a drone for my son for Christmas and it came damaged.  Funny thing was the shipping box was pristine, but the product box was smashed really bad in one corner and the drone and remote control were damaged.  I  filled out the online form at Amazon and there was a frekking line item for the exact situation:

"Shipping box intact, product box damaged"

So, I chose that, slapped the included return label on it and dropped it off at the USPS store the next day, which was Saturday.   By the time I got home, they had credited my account.  That's when I got my panties wrinkled and shot off an email that I should be refunded, not credited to my account.   Within an hour, on a Saturday, week before Christmas, they sent an apology email with a full refund to my credit card.   

Grade A customer service, if you ask me.  I thought I was gonna have to be a dick, and looking back at my email, I sounded like a douche, but I got my money back.  Had to send a video card back 2 years ago that was DOA and they sent me out a new one before I even mailed back the old one.   

Yay, capitalism
