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.

Really enjoyed Sea Breeze on the show. I love the slow turn on Zelda from John. Its like a pro wrestler turning heel!

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....

1  Video Game Outsiders Discussion / General VGO Discussion / Listener Interaction on: March 15, 2017, 04:26:44 PM
So on the most recent Blank Outsiders Michelle and John were asking how to get more people to interact with them.  I cannot speak for anyone but myself but personally I have been listening for eight years and can't remember ever sending an e-mail or really following a post on the forums.

The reason I have a hard time with it is that I do not have any social media accounts, I just never have found that kind of thing appealing.  Anyone I know and want to interact with I do so over text, in person or through gaming. So without any social media it falls to e-mails, voice mails or the forums.

I have rarely had anything to contribute to the show via voicemail or e-mail so never have bothered and as far as these forums I have never been able to figure out where I post something or do I make a new topic for it. I know you moderators are pretty cool but I find forums to be very congested and posts (like this one probably hahaha!) just get lost in the mass of other things going on.

Anyway I just thought I would chime in for why at least one long time listener never interacts with you guys.

Sorry for the long post love the show keep it up!

I pay $70 for games that give me 10-20 hours of entertainment.  Paying $30 to support the show which has given me hours of entertainment each week since 2007 (when i started listening) is a no brainer.

Thanks for making these!!

That's a fair point.  If the games had released on their own without any of the previous games they probably would be considered great but yeah it ends up just feeling like the same game you have played 10 times before (and in some cases you have lol!).

I noticed a trend that I was interested to see if people agree or disagree with.

I noticed that most IPs release two good games without a major revision, if they release a third it is usually very bland or outright bad. 

Mass Effect
Gears of War
God of War
Red Alert
Assassin's Creed

A game I would say underwent a major revision would be Fallout for example.  Fallout 3 is well thought of but it is such a diversion from the first two games that I would say we will see two good games before it needs to reinvent itself again.

Also as with everything there are exceptions (GTA, many great games without a major revision) but just in general wondering if people agree or not.
