So Josh wanted to do Honest Hearts. We overruled him in favor of getting on with the game. We’re all getting a little tired of New Vegas and we’re wary of having a repeat of the whole BioShock incident.
Deep down, I’m pretty sure Josh just wants to play Honest Hearts because he wants the
incinerator shiskebab, which is (arguably?) the most OP weapon in the game. (I don’t know, I’ve never crunched the numbers.) Josh spent the week punishing us for this. His gameplay tortured us until Rutskarn went crazy and read an extended section on lizard penises from Wikipedia, which drove me crazy…
Yes. I goaded him into suddenly doing Honest Hearts, even though we had specifically agreed that we wouldn’t be doing that. After we had already endured his punishment, I rewarded him for his misbehavior by giving him what he wanted.
I have no explanation for my actions. Others have suggested I was suffering from Stockholm Syndrome.
And then, after we recorded this episode, several people said that we should definitely do some other DLC which is not Honest Hearts. Which means we have managed to find a solution in which absolutely everyone is unhappy.
Anyway. Am I the only one who thinks the Honest Hearts radio transmission sounds like the Old Spice guy?
The Terrible New Thing
Fidget spinners are ruining education! We need to... oh, never mind the fad is over. This is not the first time we've had a dumb moral panic.
The Gradient of Plot Holes
Most stories have plot holes. The failure isn't that they exist, it's when you notice them while immersed in the story.
The Loot Lottery
What makes the gameplay of Borderlands so addictive for some, and what does that have to do with slot machines?
Steam Summer Blues
This mess of dross, confusion, and terrible UI design is the storefront the big publishers couldn't beat? Amazing.
C++ is a wonderful language for making horrible code.
