PodBytes – Episode 19: Too Young for the Blue Pills

PodBytes Episode 19

After the Storm

Off of the back of the recent Electronic Entertainment Expo, the video game industry has been slightly quieter than usual, with less groundbreaking news announcements and press releases than normal; all beans have only recently been spilled.

Far from resting on our laurels, the staff at BNBGAMING has taken this momentary lull to catch up on some much-needed gaming. In this podcast, a few of us have gotten together to discuss with each other (and let you in on) what’s been going on in our personal game-a-spheres. Join us as we discuss the truly important things, such as why we prefer our dragon-and-magic-stuffed medieval RPGs to be as realistic as possible, why we think the recent trend toward “screamo metal” in JRPGs is an ill-conceived move, the OJ trial, and the psychotherapeutic uses of video games.

PodBytes – Episode 19: Too Young for the Blue Pills stars Pascal Tekaia, Rexly Penaflorida II, and Daniel Mahdavi. Originally recorded on Monday, June 18, 2012.  Full run time: 68 mins.

  1. If you’re expecting Skyrim’s MQ to climax with some epic battles, clashing armies, blazing infernos, and armadas of dragons…then prepare to be disappointed. It’s an anti-climactic fizzle, and I moaned about it in my review 😉 

    Kind of tempted to purchase Tekken 5. I was horribly disappointed with Tekken 6’s single-player tournament, so I’m hoping it’s better in the fifth?
    Splendid podcast, guys, especially the twisted homoeroticism at the end. Pascal, you’re a natural host!

    •  Tekken 5 is definitely better than Tekken 6, not least because you get to unlock characters rather than being given all of them in one go. Tekken 5 is, in my humble opinion, the best fighter ever made.
