Hmmmm…so you two have been left high and dry by that…other email sender, I see. I am not sure if I should take you back. The two of you are tainted now. 😉
Man, the dude sounds like, well, what Rhett described him as. If you cannot take a random guy online calling you a douche without it ruining your day, then life is gonna be a painful ride for you, buddy. If John had any idea how much abuse I have taken from Rhett, he’d be grateful he got off as lightly as he did. Like I told Rhett, if I had bailed the first time Rhett took a shot at me, I doubt I would have made it past my first 4 episodes. That said, this dude seemed so confident in his status as “someone in the entertainment biz” that it lead me to a theory. Ready for it? John is actually none other than…Uwe Boll. Yep. All the signs are there. He thinks awfully highly of himself, he is in the entertainment biz, and he does not take criticism well. All signs point to him and Boll being one in the same. Plus, Uwe has had plenty of free time to email podcasts lately now that he is done with movies. Finally his films and the DGP have something in common – neither are professionally made. At least the latter is entertaining, however.
I legit got pissed when he said Lindsay fears Rhett. I know I have never met the lumbering curmudgeon in person, but I know he is a damned good, if perpetually cranky, dude. He would never give any lady cause to fear him. I feel he owes Rhett and Lindsay an apology.
So, I have been doing some pretty heavy gaming the last couple of weeks. While I never played Fallout 3, I have to say its sequel has eaten a lot of my free time lately. Fallout 4 is sooooo good! I love it in a way reserved previously only for Skyrim, which I suppose is appropriate given its developer. I am getting a little tired of all the tedious “Defend Podunk Farm from raiders/rescue the kidnapped moron” quests though. It makes me want to slap Preston Garvey upside the head. He keeps saying the Minutemen are needed, but never sends anyone else out to handle anything.
On an unrelated note, are the two of you sworn to some weird beard pact in which only one of you can wear facial hair at any given time? Rhett’s vanished, and about the same time Jason’s showed up. Did Rhett’s beard tire of being abused then pack up and move onto the face of the good doctor?
I am glad y’all touched on Gamestop’s nationwide retro trade in. I overheard my local store’s manager glowing about it to a customer today, and the things he was telling her made me seeth. He claimed all the mom and pop shops would charge her $120 for a N64, but he could order her one for $49.95. Horseshit!!! $45- $50 is the going rate at all the shops around here. I know. I am a retro collector, and I am in all the shops regularly. He started telling her about how she could trade her old games in and blah blah blah. You know what their trade in value is for the SNES copy of Earthbound? $29. Thirty bucks for a game that regularly retails for north of $120- $150. Look, I am all for free market capitalism, but there is a difference between free trade and rape. Plus, with Gamestop, you never know the condition of the items you are buying until they reach you. You buy sight unseen with them. I will always take the mom and pop shops for retro over Gamestop any day of the week and twice on Sundays.
I am glad y’all share my view of the Nintendo Switch. Nintendo excels at handheld gaming, and their home consoles are solid enough, but having a console that allows me to take the home experience on the road with me is really a cool concept! If I could do that with my PS4, I probably would have finished Fallout 4 by now! We will see, though. I know some people are on the fence about the return to cartridges as a format, but having no moving parts will hopefully mean the Switch will be as durable as the old machines. I still wish they would release some specs for the damned thing.
Since I am terrible at segues, did you hear about the Japanese lady who was getting her cervix operated on with some surgical laser, then farted and caused a fire bad enough to burn her from the waist down? I mean, I feel terrible for her, but that is epically funny in a way. I thought Rhett might enjoy it.
Anywho, as with most of my emails, this one is being written at work, so I had best cut it short. Have a great unprofessional show, guys!
