Dear everyone: I know Josh’s shenanigans are pretty hilarious. Please continue to encourage him. We don’t have to finish Skyrim this decade. There are more important things in life.
Fun fact: My microphone sounded a lot worse in this episode before I muted everything above the 4 kHz range. Imagine my voice being replaced by the screech of a thousand angry bats attacking Rutskarn because they can’t stand his puns.
Except, like, worse than normal.
We never did figure out what happened. After I stopped recording at the end of this episode I adjusted my microphone slightly (far less of an adjustment than I’d made several times during the episode, mind) and suddenly it was fine. It’s yet to revert to this bizarre, barely functional state since.
My set up is weird. Have we mentioned that?
Anyway, since I didn’t mention my pick for “beefiest beefcake” in the episode, I’ll take this opportunity to point out it’s oh so clearly one of the Greybeards. What isn’t beefier than a bunch of really really really old wrinkly dudes that live on a mountain, never bathe, and don’t talk because they’ve dedicated their lives to learning an ancient and powerful form of offensive spellcasting while simultaneously being totally lame pacifists? Am I right?
Most people would go for an obvious pick like Arngeir, but Borri’s the wild one. I mean, did you see him that one time he shouted “Bex!”? The beefiest.
C++ is a wonderful language for making horrible code.
Dead or Alive 5 Last Round
I'm not surprised a fighting game has an absurd story. I just can't figure out why they bothered with the story at all.
Blistering Stupidity of Fallout 3
Yeah, this game is a classic. But the story is idiotic, incoherent, thematically confused, and patronizing.
Another PC Golden Age?
Is it real? Is PC gaming returning to its former glory? Sort of. It's complicated.
Quakecon 2011 Keynote Annotated
An interesting but technically dense talk about gaming technology. I translate it for the non-coders.
