Podcast 21- Porch Infinity, By Avalanche Software

DougsFortressofDisapproval

 

Well wouldn’t you know it? They still let me in here! After many months of thinking and passing judgement on things I decided it was time to leave my Ice Fortress of Disapproval. I had to share my thoughts (loudly, if you check the recording) on the only podcast on the web that would be foolish enough classy enough to give me some mic time. What do we talk about? Well… I’ll check my notes… Ah, yes:

Jeremy has a new found passion for the drama and revelry brought on by the titillating combination of solitaire and a day down at the horse track, who knew?

PeeJ has a season pass and can once again feel the power of the force, and fight the dark side. Sometimes.

Phil has been in cahoots with both Adam and PeeJ to discover the shortfalls of cross-platform rocket league, among other things.

Adam has been in cahoots with Phil to discovers the joys of pullin’ his chrome on fools in some online GTAV, and more.

Doug, well I just always have something to say, don’t I? Hopefully some of it makes sense.

From now until September 4th Capcom is offering select titles for 60% off, on both the Wii U and 3DS. If you are following along on our Monster Hunter Wednesdays via the Podcast or our Twitch stream, now is the perfect time to check the game out as they are on sale for $16.99 for the Wii U version, and $19.99 for the 3DS. Why the price disparity, I couldn’t tell you. Personally I’m only a little bitter I picked up the physical Wii U version for $22 little over a week ago..

You can pick these up via each platform’s E Shop. Check after the break for a complete list of titles included in the sale.

This is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things

 

 

Super_Smash_Bros_4_merged_logo,_no_subtitle

I see that I am an extremely rare individual these days, in that I actually like surprises in my games from time to time. Surprises can be fun! Well, with the most recent leak of the Smash Brothers roster we have all had yet another opportunity for a surprise stripped away from us. To put it into perspective for those who cannot follow my line of thinking, remember when you found out that Magus was playable in Chrono Trigger? Remember that time in Jet Set Radio future when you somehow unlocked the GG’s dog as a playable character? Those kinds of surprises were why you played the games! This kind of surprise is basically dead thanks to the inevitability of these leaks brought on by the internet and its role in our society.

In all seriousness, the guy who did this is beyond screwed. When/if he is found by the Nintendo Secret Police he will be fired and probably fed to sharks. When you sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) you are under the threat of severe penalty for running your mouth to the wrong group of people. The likely scenario of what is going to happen is that he/she will be fired (least of their worries) , sued straight into oblivion, and blacklisted in the industry. While many people are happy to receive this info, it was an extremely poor decision to leak it and this individual’s life is about to be miserable long term for 15 minutes of internet fame.

Spoilers below the break.

Amazon to Acquire Twitch.TV

Twitch

Mega corporation Amazon.com is in the process of acquiring Live Streaming service Twitch.tv for approximately 1 billion dollars. Twitch will be joining the E-Commerce conglomerates family of services and store fronts including Amazon Web Services, Audible.com, and recently acquired electronic comic book dispensery ComiXology.com.

This comes as a shock after the rumors of a Google/YouTube acquisition of Twitch the past few months caused many members of the Twitch community to be nervous, as it appeared Twitch was gearing it’s service to more resemble YouTube by implementing ‘features’ that scour videos to block copy written material.

Twitch.TV CEO Emmett Shear, along with the Director of Community Marcus Graham and Mike Frazzini the VP of Games at Amazon.com streamed an Amazon/Twitch Discussion Q&A directly on Twitch in which they thank the Twitch community and go on to say Twitch will continue to remain independent, while being able to take advantage of all of the expertise and features Amazon will be able to offer.
