Tonight’s podcast is going to be delivered on time. No thanks to Jason. Its not that he tried to derail the podcast again, but we just don’t want to thank Jason. If this seems strange to you, you haven’t been listening long enough.
In tonight’s email we learn about Chance’s dilemma, either buy an Xbox One or loose his testicles. We also talked about advances in limb regeneration. We got some more information about the merger between Comcast and Time Warner and why we should be worried. Chance gives us his views on a new trend, complete digital delivery of video games. He also stumps for Captain Marvel in the battle between Captain Marvel versus Doctor Strange.
In the news dump, Rhett can’t get our intro music to work so we skip it for this week. We will try to get everything worked out and blame Jason and bring it back next week. Irrational Games, the studio behind Bioshock, is closing. The director is saying that he wants to focus on more indie type games. What he’s really saying is that he didn’t make back his money on Bioshock Infinite and can’t keep paying that many employees. We also discussed digital only delivery of games. We also mention briefly the new trailer for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. It looks impressive, and we hope it does well. There’s more, but you’ll have to listen.
Jason then talks about why you should buy an Xbox 360 or a Playstation 3 this year. There are several reasons to buy one of these systems. They both have massive game libraries. New games are still being released for these systems and will be for a while yet. However, they are both getting older and support and game releases will stop eventually. For the Xbox, if you want do anything but play games you have to have a gold account, which isn’t free. All of the things that you have to pay for on the Xbox is free on Playstation 3. The online multiplayer, the streaming youtube, etc. all free on PS3. In addition, the PS3 has the better hardware, even after the improvements that the Microsoft made to the 360. So if you only have enough cash to buy one, buy the PS3.
Rhett lets us know exactly how he feels about multiplayer achievements. You can guess where this is going. Rhett doesn’t like them. Jason is mostly in agreement. Neither of us are very diehard when it comes to multiplayer gaming. Yes, this is a bit hypocritical considering that we do our podcast while playing an mmo. Listen to our reasoning it will make sense.
Tonight we return to the battle between Captain Marvel and Doctor Strange…and again we appeal to the fans. Jason did some more research and still thinks the fight goes to Doctor Strange, and Rhett with Captain Marvel. Jason feels that Doctor Strange is on par with Shazam the wizard who gave Captain Marvel his powers and as such is more the more powerful of the two. He also has the ability to “take” another being’s powers and banish demons and humans. Rhett thinks that Jason’s argument that the creation can’t be more powerful than the creator is flawed and that since Captain Marvel’s powers are god given they are more than a match for Doctor Strange. So, here are links to the official Marvel wiki and you can research Doctor Strange yourself. And here is the official DC wiki for Captain Marvel and the Captain Marvel page on wikipedia. There’s more info on the wikipedia page than on the official DC page, kind of sad. So read up, and come up with a coherent argument and let us know.
