Opinions May Vary

I'd love to stay and chat but I have to run and go see The Shining for the first time with Colin. No worries, I'm bringing a spare change of pants in case of terror induced bowel movements.

Too far? Probably.

Anyway, Jesse joins us this week for the first time in 49(!) episodes to talk about the same thing we talked about last time he was on: Call of Duty. (Only this time we're talking about Ghosts...Last time it was Black Ops 2....though to be fair, we kinda talk about Black Ops 2 even more this time....)

Enjoy!

I finally managed to peel myself out of my sick cocoon (otherwise known as my bed) and get this week's episode uploaded. Yeah, Will was just on last week, but since we didn't get to everything we wanted to talk about we figured it would be a good plan to have him back and continue where we left off.

I promise we're going to talk about Pokemon soon. I mean, how can I put 35 hours into something in one week and not talk about it, right? Don't worry. It's going to happen

Due to my weakened state I'm going to keep this short. If this upsets you because you actually read these things I apologize. Would it make everything better if I linked the new Captain America trailer that was released like 5 minutes ago? Yeah, I thought so.

Today was really long but I wanted to get the episode uploaded asap. I'm sure I'll have tons to say about Pokemon really soon.

I don't get excited about many things. That's a blatant lie. Want to hear another lie? I'm glad I'm sitting at home and not attending The New York Comic Con. That was a good one, right? *Insert some bogus There's Always Next Year type deal*

While I'm missing out on NYCC this year, I'm still excited to read all the stories and announcements coming out over the next few days. One might find it a bit ironic that I'm going to be refreshing Bleeding Cool constantly until Sunday night but in the 3 years I've attended NYCC I've yet to make it into a panel....I guess I get too caught up in spending every cent I've earned on custom made pictures of things. I have no regrets.

The new Pokemon games come out in like, 2 days. It would be putting it lightly to say I'M REALLY FUCKING EXCITED. After several laborious hours of trying to decide which version of the game I'll be purchasing, X or Y, I think I've finally made my decision. Of all the decisions I've ever made I think it is safe to say this was the single hardest one. (Only a slight exaggeration there, btw.) The boys over at Nintendo are geniuses. They tease us with every add-on they create. Oh, what's that? You're pretty set on getting Y? OH WELL HERE'S A BADASS VERSION OF CHARIZARD THAT YOU CAN ONLY GET IN X. Oh, hey now. You're gonna get X? WELL HERE'S A NASTY LEGENDARY POKEMON THAT YOU CAN ONLY GET IN Y. It's like they enjoy torture. It's like I enjoy this torture. Either way, I might be calling in a substitute for next week's episode as I'll be completely immersed in a land of mythical dueling creatures with special abilities one might question if they were to exist in the real world.

Despite our show's moniker we rarely get into any form of heated debate on many topics. For the most part we tend to agree on things but every now and then when the topic is juicy enough...an actual debate begins to form. We then take this infant debate and nurture it. We cuddle it and try and raise it into a full blown debate complete with multiple facts and varying arguements. It makes me happy when we have these sorts of conversations because A) It makes for great Podcast material and B) It shows how passionate people can get over certain subjects. These subjects may seem silly to some people, but we'd like to think that they're off being miserable somewhere else and not wasting their time with our little show.

I finished Grand Theft Auto V yesterday. I had no idea I was even close to the end then all of a sudden the camera starts panning up and "end of game" triumphant music starts playing while some credits start rolling. I have to admit I was kind of "meh" on the situation. One might say I found the end of the game to be a tad unsatisfying.....Now, don't get me wrong; I absolutely loved the game but the ending seemed to come out of nowhere. It's as if the developers forgot they had to end the story and just threw one in where they saw fit. Despite finishing the main storyline, I'm still only about 65% done with the entire game as I have mountains of side missions to complete. Not to mention the online mode was released yesterday. As far as GTA:V goes, I'd say I have at least another solid month of playing before it even begins to get boring. This makes me happy. Very happy.
