Get your chips outta’ Tom’s caps! Ya jerk!

This week’s episode gets straight-up rowdy as all five members gather ’round for discussions on Sony’s Playstation All-Star Battle Royale, Ubisoft’s Titanic-sized leak for Rayman Legends (and a super spoiled Wii U secret), and Nintendo’s shockingly strategic digital download game release announcement. Plus, after the break, Zack gives a very, incredibly special Marvel movie review and the gang answers some listener emails– including a rather lengthy breakdown of individual fandom pros and cons.

  1. Some of my initial ideas for characters when I heard about the Sony Smash Bros:

    Ape Escape Monkey
    Locoroco
    Someone from Valkyria Chronicles
    Captain Blasto
    A Hotshots Golfer
    Jersey Devil
    Someone with a Keyblade

      Also, throw in the dude from Medievil and Gitaroo Man, for good measure

      • Also Also, if they’re digging into their downloadable games, I imagine that Noby Noby Boy could make it in. And for that matter, they should probably have some kind of Katamari Damacy representation as well.

        Perhaps a Legacy of Kain character? Soul Reaver?

        Tomba? Maximo? Klonoa? If they’re really digging into third parties that still haven’t been on other platforms, maybe a Disgaea character, a Shin Megami Tensei character, etc.

        I don’t think the inclusion of Fat Princess as a reveal trailer fighter is an indicator of them struggling to come up with characters, I think they’re just not starting with a show stopper

          Well I don’t think they will struggle with characters but something tells me they will have to but the characters. I mean half the ones listed here aren’t owned by sony, where Nintendo had those characters already.

          Would you think jack and daxter or Rachel and clank would play together as 1 selection?

        • Oh, and lastly for Crash and Spyro: They’re both now owned by Sierra, which is owned by Activision.

          I imagine Sony will get them for this game, and if not, they’ve screwed something up.

          • damn it, beat me to it…but if they will get them, they better use the older characters from the ps1 era, as the new ones just got way to silly, but would make for a more “cute”game despite all the killers already in there

      • Medievil! That game was the tits back in the day! …Sometimes. When it didn’t delve into huge minigame difficulty spikes, it was a good time. I’d actually get excited if the Medievil guy showed up. Or Klonoa.

      Oh my god, Blasto. I died so many times playing Blasto.

      If he made it in there, they’d have to find and repurpose the original voice recordings from Phil Hartman. No other voice would be acceptable.

      • That is the trouble with Blasto.

        I’d be okay with a really really really good impression, but it would have to be impeccable.

    • Oh man! Gitaroo Man! I would buy this day one if the game had him. And the Ape Escape monkeys. Such good ideas, Tyler!

    • I’d love to see Papapons and loco rocos in there! what about a colossus too ;)

      • Mentioned the Colossus as Wander’s “Super Smash”, but I think having any Team Ico game in there will make Harrison cry.

        I’d wager that a Loco Roco-themed stage, at the very least, is a lock.

        • Man, if you could play as Locoroco and tilt the stage to fuck with your friends, that would be the only character i would play as.

      Tyler you beat me to it, bravo. Isn’t it convienant that a couple of weeks ago you guys were talking about franchise characters and spokesperson for platforms and here this game is. This game is going to be thought especially when you look at smash brothers that had 35 playable characters granted most are from the same franchise and sonic and snake are from their respected companies.

      All the characters above would rule (gitaroo man!) I would have to add Lammy (um jammer Lammy) and the 3 types of patapon (magic, sword, and sheild/arrow they could play like Pokemon in smash) if your going to add somebody with a keyblade you might as well add somebody from the bouncer.

      Ultimately this could be a good game I will never play, but instead of pulling old character from past successful games into this wouldn’t you just make a modern successful game with that character. Rayman shows that it can work!

    I might be incorrect but harrison claimed he has not named an episode yet, but wasn’t he the first to say fruit cake baby, naming the episode. If not then as a side note I have named more episodes than harrison. Some day Harrison some day you can ne as cool as us.

        I thought Tom named that episode. Brandon has the final decision so the episode is named by whoever says the title first.

        • I think I started the phrase, but Harrison said the actual title.

            Yeah that’s what I remember it being similar to. Well then Harrison has named an episode.

    If Josh the emailer checks the comments, I would like to say if you are looking for players for dnd in north 285 area I would volunteer to be a player in a campaign. I haven’t played fourth but i have played third and 3.5. I can’t promise a bed pan mummy of questionable class, but I enjoy the role playing aspect over the strict battle aspect.

      Ditto on that. I haven’t played for years though and I’m over in sandy springs. I’ve been trying to either find a DnD game or a board game club to join for a while.

      I’ve never played D&D but I’ve always wanted to give it a try if ya’ll are putting a game night together, or board games/card games. I live inside 285, but I work in Marietta.

  4. I was trying to listen to the podcast really tired and wanted to sleep, but didn’t bother to take out my earphones, which means I didn’t get any sleep due to the amounts of laughing xD

    Another podcast to go among the classics=)

    btw, is the music from a sega genesis game?

          • here is an idea…I bet the soundtrack has around 10 songs, so every podcast, when you put a new song on, the reward goes down by a dolar or something to make it interesting=)

      • Is this from a Master System game? Or Turbographx-16? That’s pretty sneaky.

          I doubt it, it sound like it has too many instruments to be anything too far back in time, but Brandon has ruled out the usual suspects.

    This was a hilarious episode! I had to put my pen down I was laughing so hard I thought I was going to break it. I’m glad you saved my email for this episode, the owl sounds could not have been in better company.

    Thanks!

  6. I’m going to admit it guys, I am incapable of telling a short story. haha

    Also, Brandon! The second you said you do this for the folks stuck in traffic, I had actually just got out of being stuck in traffic and was pulling into work. Lost my shit so hard.
