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,

Well, thanks for saying hello and explaining, you're in the massive majority! Maybe a few more will try the Reddit thing, it's low commitment and a nice place to suggest news stories.

And a lot of others feel the total opposite, so I'm just going to keep being myself because you can't please everyone at all times, on every show. The dynamic between my bestie John and me, especially when disagreeing, is priceless.  Cool there's no true anger on the show or between us btw, lol. If I was truly that 'angry' with the switch, I would not have dropped 500 bucks on it for the sake of the show (and to play/experience Zelda).
8  Video Game Outsiders Discussion / General VGO Discussion / Re: 502 - Hong Kong Hotel Room on: March 14, 2017, 01:28:26 PM
Hmm so there *is* a lack of dungeons huh, real ones, that sucks... that's the single most thing I was looking forward to, and part of what always made Zelda, Zelda to me! I'm glad you're loving the game, for me - Zelda, much like the switch, had so much more potential, so hopefully like you said they will fulfill that somehow in the future.

Maybe the next Zelda will let you choose to play as link or zelda, let you pick a class/play style, let you get talent points, levels up, skills, attacks to unlock, etc... maybe there will be dungeons, or even co-op/grouping! I'd love to see loot that doesn't break, but gets replaced as you play because you find better things and hunt for those perfect stats that fit your playstyle. Not saying it should become an mmo, but this game would have been amazing to play along with someone, but mostly with a little more customization and better rewards/loot. Though, I'm still enjoying Zelder Scrolls, even with the flawed performance and graphics, so that's got to say something!

Lol, I actually prefer when guests suck for that reason, although John has to be in the mood to go after them, otherwise it's pointless... but I want reallllllly bad ones, sort of like Howard Stern when he would interview all the freaks.

Come on horrible listeners, you go to be out there  Wink
15  Video Game Outsiders Discussion / General VGO Discussion / Re: 499 - We're all Fanboys now! on: February 25, 2017, 02:23:59 PM
Thanks for your concern Punko, but Matt left the show because he had another child and was too busy. He was planning to leave for months, and could not commit to the basic show weekly, let alone extra content or app content. We offered to put him on the artwork... as I said, Matt planned on leaving long before talk of an app/art. Also, the show is doing great, our numbers since Matt left are super up (not saying that's the cause, its most likely exposure from our hard work getting the app up and doing extra work/content for the show). It was for the best, because while busy, Matt also was looking for another dynamic he was never going to get in our show. We aren't going to walk on eggshells around anyone... we tell people to fuck off, we pick on each other, we talk over each other. Its like the old episodes of Louie where they would all sit around the poker table and shit on each other... you either like it, or you don't. You can either hang, or you can't. The end. I'm proud we ended up landing on a comedy network, and the folks at riotcast recognize us in that universe, as someone whose been doing comedy sites and books for years - it's a natural fit, and John and I have never been happier with VGO! We're excited each week to talk about games, and just have fun.

As far as the guests, let us remember every single person on our show aside from John and me, have always just been listeners. A lot of these people went on to make their own shows, or be part of other shows (ironically after appearing on ours, and simply from appearing on ours) etc, but at the end of the day we're all just gamers and every opinion is valid. There will be guests some people love, and some people hate - some people love/hate John or me! I really enjoyed pogo being in because of how John was treating him, shitting on people (in a ball busting way) is hilarious to me. Overall, our feedback has been super positive about having different guests on each week, it's only about 20 mins of the showtime (their spotlight) and it exposes us to stuff we might not cover, or people we might have great, new, interactions with. Some won't be perfect, or even good, but that's okay! As far as Ben Heck, he's a popular guy, and I enjoyed our talk, it's okay if you didn't. We will never, ever, ever, be able to please every one of our listeners... at all times... with every episode... with every segment in every episode. And while it may not seem apparent to, what I'd call the core small community of listeners who follow on social media, or ever dare visit this crappy site we call home - the millions of people who have downloaded the show through the years... none of these people really give a flying fuck about insider drama, the Matt situation, or what random guest we have on. The average listener, the actual mass of our listeners... see, none of these people are still thinking about Kyle, or Frosty, or Matt, or Fruits, or Jefferson, nor would they think about me if I left (as I've had to before while I was dealing with a heart problem, and traveling across the country/moving).

As far as John 'flipping' on the PS4, yes, it's entertaining... hold tight, we're gonna cover everything in gaming, one episode or month might be PS4 heavy, the next switch or pc... we're just going to talk about what we're into at the time, which has varied greatly, and will continue to when you're doing a show for 12 years. It's not the same as just being a gamer for 12 years, trust me, we try, buy, and talk about stuff - simply for the show, and because of that it's exposed us both to things we may not have covered or been into, and allowed us the fun of being able to be totally immersed and indulgent with every new obsession that comes along.
