Episode 175 – Goodbye John

Goodbye John. Part of this podcast is about John. I can’t say that we dedicated that time to John, just that we talk to and about him. The podcast is still dedicated to the Elders of the Internet.

Fan Email

We got an email from John this week, which is why we talk about him. Most of what we have to say to each other is not complimentary. I was about to say “unfortunately”, but it was kind of entertaining. Though we were a bit surprised by some of the comments.

Goodbye John

Here are the news articles that we covered, plus an extra that we might or might not cover at a later date.

The beginning of the podcast was going so well. I started to think we might be able to complete the whole thing in one video. Then disaster and you get 4.

Episode 174B – Darksiders vs Skyrim

Darksiders vs Skyrim. Both Darksiders and Skyrim are getting the remastered treatment. Which one will come out on top. Darksiders looks like a lot of fun. Skyrim is a more serious RPG with a huge following. Which one is your favorite?

We are getting closer to the top of the stack. We just recorded an episode last night. I do know, however, that we talked quite a bit about zombies. Rhett has been watching the Walking Dead and has felt the need to suspend disbelief a little more than is necessary to enjoy the show. Jason has been playing Spider-man: Shattered Dimensions and has found the Spider-man Noir sections to be quite enjoyable.

Darksiders vs Skyrim

Here’s the list of video games that are coming out this week. Hopefully you will find something to whet your appetite for gameing*.

* – The DG Podcast makes no promise about the playability of any of the above games. In fact, we don’t even guarntee we said anything about the games positive or negative.

We managed to complete the podcast in only two videos this time. We hope you enjoy.

Episode 174A – Nintendo Switch Will Change the World

Nintendo Switch Will Change the World. Have you seen this thing. It looks awesome. There is a ton of potential behind this system to be the next WII. I already want one and there are some serious issues Nintendo has to resolve before I really jump on the bandwagon.

Fan Email

I am getting closer to catching up with my backlog, and you know what that means? Fan emails. We do get them occasionally and I like to post them so that you can catch us twisting their words to suit our purposes.

Nintendo Switch Will Change the World

Nintendo is hyping there next console, the Switch. Which is very descriptive of its capabilities. The Switch has the capabilities of a console, a tablet, a portable gaming console, and more. It really looks amazing. There are some questions that Nintendo has to answer before we get really stoked. Questions like, storage capacity, battery life, heat dissipation, are the games strictly digital now? Without any confirmation, the battery life is rumored to be about 3 hours. That’s way unimpressive for a tablet. Also, with heat being such an issue for electronics, how are you planning to cool this? Passive heat dissipation may not be the most desirable option, but the size just doesn’t lend itself well to active cooling. Active cooling could come with its own problems, noise being the top of the list.

We got through the episode with only a small amount of difficulty this week. You only get two videos though.

Episode 173B – Batman Versus Skylanders

Batman Versus Skylanders. Batman has found himself in the Skylander universe and due to an unfortunate mix-up has made enemies of the entire universe. Are we really surprised? Batman has the incredible power to tick people off.

Jason and Rhett are busy doing things like reading comics, playing video games, watching movies, you know the normal things. Sorry, I don’t remember what it was I was doing this morning let alone what Rhett and Jason were doing before this podcast.

Batman Versus Skylanders*

Here’s the list of video games that came out this week.

* – Batman can take them. He the freaking Batman.

You get 4 times the videos this week. We thought what would our fans like best? Probably to see us more. You’re welcome.

Episode 173A – It’s A Podcast

It’s A Podcast. I know it comes a surprise to you all that this is definitely a podcast. I know that we have been a bit ambiguous in what it is we are doing here. We haven’t deliberately kept you in the dark, but we are going to try to be more transparent in the future.

Fan Email

We are getting closer to the latest episode and that means that I will be able to get back to posting the emails that we don’t receive. I’m just joking. We really like the emails honest.

It’s A Podcast

Not sure which news stories go with the podcast this week. There’s quite a bit of news to get all nerd ragey over. It is rather funny. When I was in school we would worry about getting the big guy in the class angry. He was bigger and stronger than everyone else. You didn’t want to get on his bad side. Now, it is the nerd rage that everyone is afraid of.

Two videos this week. We keep hoping that the internet issues are going to go away, but they keep coming back.

Episode 172B – Ace Banana is Really a Game?

Ace Banana is Really a Game? That’s right Ace Banana. That was not a typo in the game title. I wish it was. Do we really need a video game about banana’s? I think someone has been wasting our time.

I’m sure that Jason and Rhett have been living up to their status of geek deities. You can bet that video games, comics, movies, television, and everything else was involved. You probably just thought that Ragnarok had come early.

Ace Banana is Really a Game?

We have a treat this week. I was able to find the list of games coming out the week of this podcast.*

* – We make no claim as the amount of fun you will receive from any of the games on this list. Nor do we claim that they will launch as and when expected.

There are three videos for you this week. It almost makes up for the missing videos from the past two weeks doesn’t it?

Episode 172A – Crazy Trick to End Reptile Dysfunction

Crazy Trick to End Reptile Dysfunction. Don’t you hate it whne you are expecting your reptile to be there for you through thick and thin and you turn around and bam reptile dysfunction. This one crazy trick will put an end to that.

Fan Email

Another post down and another post closer to returning to your regularly scheduled podcast and fan email posts. We’re getting there people, one post at a time. I know we can do it.

Crazy Trick to End Reptile Dysfunction

I can’t tell you how much this issue has cost our country. There have been PSAs, fundraisers, awareness campaigns, and more and where has it gotten us? It has cost us literally tens of pennies and all we needed was one little fix the entire time.

Again, no video. Not sure what happened to it. There may have been a video, then again maybe not. There will be one for the next post.

Episode 171A – This Podcast Will Leave You Speechless

This Podcast Will Leave You Speechless. The effect probably won’t last. The lab tests have shown that the effect are only temporary and they only last for a fraction of a second. And the one guy in a coma is just a statistical anomaly. Statistics show that he was due for a coma anyway.

Fan Email

Getting closer to the magic number of the present episode. The close I get the closer we get to returning to posting listener emails. So, bear with me, we are almost there.

This Podcast Will Leave You Speechless

Can you believe the titles that we give our podcasts now days. It seems like all the titles on YouTube are about click bait and have nothing to do with what is actually in the videos. Even those Slo Mo Guys are doing it with views of exploding fruit, paint, bugs…what do you mean they really do that stuff? You have got to be kidding. Well, my point still stands.

No video this week. I’m not entirely sure what happened to it, but it was probably Jason’s fault and had something to do with the internet going down.

Episode 170B – XCOM is Unloved

XCOM is Unloved. Let face it. We all hate XCOM. He comes to the party trying to be all mysterious and aloof. We all know that he really comes because he’s too cheap to by his own party snacks. And the whole mysterious act, we get it you work for the government. It’s not like you’re a spy or something.

Jason and Rhett have once again pushed the boundaries of geekdom. In their quest to become the alpha geek, they have played video games, watched television and movies, read books, and sneered at sports.

XCOM is Unloved*

XCOM gets no love from the DG Podcast. It isn’t like that game is deep or entertaining or anything. You probably think that we are being unfair, but since when are geeks concerned with aliens and the shadowy government agencies bent on stopping their depredations? Our alien overlords are making us say that.

* – XCOM is a game that we can really get behind. Killing aliens advanced weapons, perma-death. What’s not to love.

We had 4 internet interruptions this week, so you get 4 videos. Don’t you feel lucky?

Episode 170A – YouTube is Snitching

YouTube is Snitching is the big news of the day. We thought you were on our side YouTube. In the past you let us stick it to the man and the relationship worked. Little did we know that you were just biding your time, gathering evidence so that you could stab us in the back.

Fan Email

I promise to return to the regularly scheduled emails as soon as I get caught up. Once I get caught up though, I will probably lag behind again. Have I let you down before?

YouTube is Snitching

There is a new sheriff in town and he goes by the name of YouTube. No more will we be allowed to roam the wild wastes of the internet doing what we please and posting the videos. Now YouTube, that once lovable rascal, has joined the man. He was probably a plant the whole time, waiting for us to give him the goods.

We finally did it. A whole podcast without interruption. If only the happened all the time.
