Krispy is off watching the new Ghostbusters movie so Chrissy D fills in and brings impressions of a NEW Kinect game called 'Fru'. I know what you are thinking but believe us, the game looks kinda cool (too bad nobody can play it!) With that said, we find ourselves a little less focused this week since we've all been dabbling in games both old AND new but there is plenty to talk about thanks to a wealth of feedback from last week. We dabble in Persona 4, Mass Effect 2, and of course, Pokemon Go.

    All this talk about Pokemon Go makes me wish that there was a Persona Go where you can capture cool looking demons, and of course the Fabulous Pony. ;)

    I agree with Nolan about Blood and Wine, one of, if not the greatest, DLC I have ever played. If possible, I suggest you read the books first, it makes certain dialogue sections that much more enjoyable. With the Game of the Year version coming for the Witcher, I can't wait to rebuy and do everything again on PC.

    That said, your discussions on Mass Effect got me thinking, I've never played them and I am looking for an rpg to sink my teeth into, should I give it a go? How does Mass Effect 1 hold up to today's standards?

      Hey there. I'm sure the 4pp hosts will weigh in, but as far as my opinion goes I think that ME is a fantastic RPG series.

      The stregth of those games are in it's characters and it's setting. Characters are extremely well written and their dialogue is top notch. You'll find at least one character that you really like. Secondly, the setting is very well put together and cohesive and a lot of work went into making sure every last detail of the world is explained and well constructed.

      In terms of gameplay, the first game is pretty rough by today's standards. My suggestion would be to play the first one a bit to see if you can get used to the controls and gameplay. If it's not your thing, don't feel bad to simply read a recap of the story and jump into the second game. The gameplay is much better and the characters are great. The third game has the best gameplay out of all of them.

        I tried to play the first one a couple times back around release, I just couldn't get in to the farming worlds for materials, or whatever it was.

          Indeed, there are a lot of clunky mechanics and weird design decisions in the first installment. I played it around release as well and fell in love with the quirky mechanics, but even I would tell you that they aren't really *good* by any means.

          The second one has a far simpler, albeit more repetitive ressource gathering mechanic.

          To be fair, none of that stuff is absolutely necessary to finish and enjoy the games, but you might miss out on some of the more "golden" endings if you never interact with those mechanics. On the flipside, the ressource gathering mechanics have that "addictiveness" factor since they directly affect the quality of your armour, weapons...etc, so you might end up getting into it.

    Nick needs a Dinosaur some where in that Yakuza tattoo. Maybe Matt Damon riding it.

    I thought Brad was going to say "full back tattoo on Nick's back of a velociraptor"

    Hey guys, good podcast as usual.

    I was wondering if you had ever considered the idea of making an entire Spoilercast episode where you talk in detail about several of the more story-heavy games of this year.

    Off the top of my head, Uncharted 4, Inside and Blood and Wine could benefit from such a discussion.

    Keep up the good work guys.

    PS: Brad, if I had the choice I would tattoo "Chris Davis was right" in large block letters across your upper chest.

    Pokemon Go is so weird. The "game" aspects are not very good, the app seems to be down just as much or more than it working, people seem to be running into the same Pokemon over and over again (goddamn Pidgey and Rattata), Pokestops are far and few between outside of populated areas making the need to spend money more likely to obtain Pokeballs, and its hard to be interested in Gym battles when the people on it are so much higher than most people would likely have.

    But man, I cant pull myself away. Its so inferior to the handheld games, but I havent been this into Pokemon since I was 12 and it hit Stateside in 1998.

    Nostalgia is probably a huge part of it as people who hadnt watched or played Pokemon since Gen 1, but are happy to be reciting the Team Rocket motto on Facebook now. Its absolutely crazy that it hasnt sizzled yet, and still seems pretty high even with all the problems with it. Just hoping Nintendo doesnt take the wrong things away from this success.

    Hello, evenings.
    The first question during community, about not liking something and having valid reasons to something that was so popular and new at the time?
    Don't you think, in some way, that was the case for you with Undertale?
    I know none of you hated it or something like that, but in the end didn't understood why there was so much hype for that game. I don't either, despise that I did really liked it.

    P.S.: You know what's the worst part about getting Game Over if the main character dies in Persona 4? When you get a normal encounter were the enemy uses a "Death" ability that has a chance to just instant-kill. Lost 2 hours of grinding to that...
