For our one hundredth episode, we’ve recorded an extra-long Diecast. Here we have three solid hours of whining, arguing, cross-talk, confusion, stupidity, and also the occasional mention of videogames.
For the purpose of the comments, I’m breaking the show notes into three posts. Below are the show notes for the first hour. You’re free to discuss any part of the show you like, but my hope is that we can discuss hour #1 today, and then cover the next two hours on Thursday and Friday.
3:00 Elder Scrolls Online, Guild Wars 2, Final Fantasy Online, Kingdom Hearts
Rutskarn recently began playing Elder Scrolls Online. From there, we digress into all the various MMOs we’ve played over the last couple of years.
22:00 Bloodborne and Dark Souls
This discussion is a bit of a re-run. I blame Josh.
There’s a really important difference in how people enjoy games, and Bloodborne seems to make that distinction really clear. I’d love to study this and figure out what different people are after.
42:00 Life is Strange
Warning: Spoilers for end of Episode 2.
58:00 Shamus talks about his computer problems and Skyrim Mods.
I was playing Skyrim with hardcore permadeath, Frostfall, and Realistic Needs.
Also: Windows 8 is SO much nicer when it’s not linked to an MSN account. No stupid login. (Infuriating when you’re rebooting repeatedly to solve a problem.) No stupid Microsoft OneCloud. (What a dumb waste. And it always seemed to eat a little more CPU power than made sense for an application I NEVER USED.) My local user folder is now my proper user name and not Microsoft’s idiotic web-safe name, which formerly put all my Documents into something like myemail@domai_000.)
It was almost worth re-installing just to clean that mess up.
