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 http://riotcast.com/vgo

[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: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QDjci1ODoBs&feature=youtu.be

[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

After Episode 501, I was excited to hear what Michelle thought of Zelda. She has a lot of valid criticism with the game. We both play open world RPGs extensively. I am playing Zelda on the WiiU.

First off, I love this game and of the best games I've played in a while. Is it perfect? No. I applaud Nintendo for taking Zelda in a different direction. I've been calling this game, Zelder Scrolls  Cheesy . To me, this game is a watered down version of games like Elder Scrolls or The Witcher. Since its in the Zelda universe, I think that is why we are seeing 10/10s. I do like the non hand holding, exploration aspects of this game. 

I find the combat very fun. I am a big Dark Souls guy, so dodging and parrying is up my ally. Now the weapon durability is pretty disappointing. It would be nice if the weapons broke, there would be a way to repair them. I find myself always using crappy weapons and saving my good ones for no reason. I love the variety of weapons and the high drop rate. Michelle's idea with random stats would of been a nice touch.

I think the game looks beautiful but the WiiU version has major frame rate issues, especially in towns!

My MAJOR issue with this game is the lack of dungeons. That was my most favorite part of the Zelda games. I know there are a handful of non traditional dungeons, but I am hoping they release DLC with REAL Zelda dungeons. The trials are ok, and interesting way to level up Link, but its not the same. :/

Sounds like I will hold off on the Switch until they release a newer/better version in a year. That's what Nintendo does!!

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!

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

My opinion probably sucks, but yours is wrong.

I was going to photoshop that picture of Michelle above, but realized her holding a bunch of Nintendo crap is funnier than anything I can come up with.
