  • pcch7

    I’d watch you twitch some games Frank

  • Sam

    Great show so far guys, halfway through.

    Not that is up your guys’ alley much, but I was kinda hoping someone got some time with Until Dawn. I’m surprisingly having a ton of fun with that right now.

  • Jason Martynowski

    I like almost all the side stuff in AK, I can’t stand a lot of the riddler trophies/riddlers. It’s just impossible to do all that stuff without straight up looking it up on youtube, a lot because of what Frank explained with seeing green trophies that you can’t get yet. I only used the batcable thingie once or twice as well, only for riddler trophies.

  • pcch7

    THAT is enterprise. As Geraldo would say.

  • devolutionary

    While a lot of people were hoping that Miyamoto would take over as President of Nintendo, I have a feeling that wasn’t the ideal role for him. I get this feeling it would’ve put a muzzle on his creative abilities. Just found out that former head, Tatsumi Kimishima, has accepted the position although that was during the GameCube years. With more of a business/managerial background, it remains to be seen if he can lead Nintendo out of another gaming lull (Wii-U).

  • Bandit Manatee

    These surprise game junks are the best. Cool!

  • Sam

    “I’m not the smartest book in the shed” – Dax

  • pcch7

    I thought the Arkham Knight’s indentity was obvious, and I didn’t know anything about that character. The way he they told his story made it fairly obvious for me.

    I’m glad you guys raised some points on the side missions, I agree fully.

  • Jasper

    Sweet! Batman talk with commissioner Gordine!

  • Rocket League is one of the best free DLC games I’ve played. Super fun. I’ll go head-to-head with any of you sons of bitches. Or start a league. One or the other.

  • pcch7

    Gotta get back into Ori, Dax. It’s amazing

  • pcch7

    I wish it was free on steam though, only on ps4 as far as I understand?

  • pcch7

    You don’t even need to be a pro gamer, many streamers on twitch make a good living off of it.

  • pcch7

    Less than a day for The Taken King now, getting hype!

  • I really like the “what we’ve been playing” section, but I wish there was a little more review/discussion on the games – at least a star rating. Some of the titles you mentioned were simply, “So I played x-game. It’s pretty good.” Then it was on to the next title.

    Describe the game, talk about what’s good and what’s bad. What other games it reminds you of. Etcetera.

  • pcch7

    I agree, more star ratings. Star rate everything =D

  • Sean

    Star ratings are not really feasible when you’ve only played half an hour of a game, but I agree that sometimes we are rushing through this section of the show and we’re just listing off games without offering any additional information about them. Will try to be more mindful of this in the future.

  • pcch7

    You could star rate each other’s reviews =D

  • Frankie Knuckles

    My brevity during this section is usually due to the fact that we’re over 3 hours at this point. It’s also easier to generate conversation when there’s overlap in what we played, which (surprising) doesn’t actually happen that often.

  • HuckCity

    I agree that we should probably give these games more depth (especially since we record so infrequently). We could probably just talk about the top 3 games we’ve played or something like that and focus on the overlap when it does happen.

  • This would be a good idea. Doesn’t even have to be top three. Just maybe the three that there is the most to say about; good or bad. I’ve been playing Mad Max for only about 2 hours and already I can say quite a few things about it.

  • Rob

    I would check out a Frank K twitch stream as long as we get a day or two heads up. I think he’s got a personality that would work well for livestreaming.

    Fun listen, interesting to hear a few of ‘the crew’ talk about something other than movies.
