Whilst this word isn’t technically a swear, we wanted to point this one out as some folks might find it offensive. Suiidgy says this at 5 minutes and 56 seconds.
…the hell with you
Suidgy says this when he’s describing the hardware issue with his PS4. This happens at 6 minutes and 16 seconds.
Suidgy says this when lamenting that his fibre optic broadband isn’t as fast as it could be - this happens at 8 minutes and 3 seconds.
This is something that both Squidgy and myself say at around 11 minutes, whilst discussing an incredibly offensive weapon in Borderlands The Pre-Sequel. I have literally no idea whether this is offensive or not (as it’s Australian slang), so I’ve listed it here as a possible swear just to be safe.
Squidgy mentions this word at the 26:48 mark, when discussing the final, final, final, final boss on Streets of Rage 3. Not technically a swear word itself, but it can be offensive
and is different to the word "booger"
Unfortunately what we’d recorded for this month was lost when the app we use to edit our episodes crashed and took out a bunch of data on Jay’s laptop. So we’ve gotten together and made this episode as a sort of substitute.
although nothing we ever record will ever substitute for what we had recorded with Adrian and Dylan from Arcade Attack
In this episode, we talk a little about what happened to Jay’s laptop, what we talked about on our now lost episode, and we allude to Squidgy having had revealed something which now gets to remain a secret.
we even hatch a plan of just how Squidgy can deny ever releasing his secret to the world
Squidgy tells us about him having to upgrade to a PS4 Pro. This was due to a hardware failure in his OG PS4, which he got at release - so it lasted a long time, really. Which leads us down a path of discussing the design of the PS4 and how it looks a lot like the average landmine.
We also discuss this wonderful weapon from Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel
We then talk about what is quite possibly the worst line in video gaming history. And no, we don’t mean:
Tales is going to crash … … … Aaaaagghh!
Or indeed Barry Burton’s mention of a jill Sandwich. What was the line? You’ll have to listen in order to find out.
We then talk about Dark Chronicle again
seriously, Squidgy loves this game
We also have a chat about the entire Kingdom Hearts series, and how there will be folks in the target audience, when the third game is released, who weren’t alive when the first two came out
or any of the hundred other games in the series, for that matter
which lead us to The Stanley Parable, via Strange Brigade
and it’s a credible link, folks
We then talk about the survival mode on Samurai Warriors
and my incredibly detailed description of architecture. And how excited we are about Warriors Orochii 4’s impending UK release. Which, naturally, leads us back to Streets of Rage.
I then talk about how I haven’t really been playing video games this month other than 0 A.D, which I absolutely love. Seriously, if you are into RTS games, and play them on PC, then please download this free game. It is amazing.
But I have been reading about video games. I’ve got a few recommendations in this month’s episode, and if you’re anything like me then you’ll want to read one of them - for sure. And we end up discussing a little about the history of video games - from the Penny Arcades, through the original Pinball machines, up to Space Invaders.
Which lead us on a discussion about George A Romero’s “of the Dead” series of movies
trust me, it’s a link which makes sense
and just what each one represents. Which takes us back to the Sega Saturn and the Naomi.
Eventually I shut up about the history of video games, and Squidgy introduces us to a new PSO challenge that he and Ike have cooked up.
