We've got a long show for you this week folks. Nolan plays catch up after missing the last 2 podcast recordings but he comes bearing gifts. Turns out, Nolan has some early impressions of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided which are exclusive to the audio version of this podcast due to embargo restrictions. We also delve into Deus Ex Go and discuss whether or not Adam Jensen is a dork. On top of all the Deus Ex talk, we cover Grow Up, Bound, Metal Gear Survive, and (WAY) more!

    Sorry to nitpick, but Nick kept calling different star systems in No Man Sky "solar systems."

    But unless all the main stars in the system are named Sol, they are just star systems.

    I don't know if Brad was kidding or not when he said that awards shows should come out in April of the following year, but I did think that was an interesting idea. Sometimes it takes playing a game for a while to really form a clear opinion of it. I remember back when Dragon Age: Inquisition came out, at first I really enjoyed it. But as I played more, I realized the the problems that I had with the game.

    I guess the problem then would be that people would be spending the first quarter of the year playing games from last year rather than new releases from the current year.

      I actually like this idea, gives the games time to marinate.
      Like with Pokémon X&Y, when it first came out i thought it was amazing and told all my friends to get on that shit.
      After a bit more time with it i realized it wasn't as great as i thought it was for many different reasons.

    From what I've been hearing about KingsGlave is that it feels like a really long cutscene that they put out of the game and apparently you will like the movie if you watched the trailers and the anime ONAs they put out a while ago. So it shouldn't be surprising why the critics didn't like it, but that also leaves me with a question: Why did Square Enix bother to put this in theaters in the first place and not on youtube or something like that? It just seems kind of dumb to me.

    I never completed Deus Ex: HR so I also just got the Directors Cut.

    I am playing with the commentary turned on and Brad is right about the creators thinking Adam is the most badass character ever created. That is all they talk about.

    Its my first time playing a game with commentary and it's pretty interesting.

    I thought Nick asking why didn't Konami just give Metal Gear Survive a different IP was interesting because right at the beginning of the show you all talked about why people don't create their own IPs when making their tribute games/projects. For businesses, IPs are about brand recognition, which is what made Star Wars worth $4 billion even though the last three movies released in the franchise were almost entirely reviled. It's what made Minecraft worth $2.5 billion even though you could argue that game had sold the majority of the copies it was going to before it was bought by Microsoft.

    And the thing is, the executive who is making the decision to put the Castlevania license on a Mercury Steam game or putting Metal Gear on this title isn't thinking about the 'sanctity' of the IP, but about how they can keep their jobs. It's why so many movies are sequels. It's unfortunate and I'm not saying we should all just grin and bear it, but let's not be befuddled by why these decisions are made: these are companies organized and created to make money.

    Hello! I have been a many-year listener from the Jtv days and wanna finally say thanks, since I have never been vocal to or within the 4pp community. I of course enjoyed the podcast, as always, and liked this one as well, especially the discussion about how you guys were talking about the "people" surrounding the No Man's Sky funk, not the game itself. I like hearing those kind of heated and provocative discussions on these games, as you guys usually have. Just also wanna say thanks to Krispy for answering my questions on the feed on comic chapter length too!
