Bonus Episode: Otakus Must Die #3

OMD Ep3On today’s bonus episode of Otakus Must Die, we start things off spending a lot of time getting Alex’s thoughts on her recent watch of the Bakuman anime.  Following that, Ben gives his views on his first viewing of Gurren Lagann.  We then move on to news, where we discuss the unveiling of a Hatsune Miku robot, as well as the upcoming live action Bakuman film.

We wrap things up with a lengthy discussion (rant) on the culture of hatred that’s so prevalent within the anime community, mainly focusing on Sword Art Online as well as the Slice of Life genre.

Episode 15: That Thousand-Year-Old Loli Thing

GMD Ep15Most of the early reviews of The Witcher 3 are out, and they’re overwhelmingly positive. After (kind of?) making a vow to play The Witcher series this summer, the team talks about Fallout 4 rumors and Ben accuses Alex of liking hipster humor. The news wraps up with previews of a couple cool looking indie games that are coming out soon.

This week’s convoluted topic for the Top 3 List is “Favorite non-Final Fantasy and non-Dragon Quest JRPGs”. After some What You Been Playin’ Bro?, the team ends up going totally emo during The Worst Thing That Happened To Us This Week.

Bonus Episode: Otakus Must Die #2

OMD Ep2Jared here, back with another episode of Otakus Must Die!

In today’s episode we waste no time jumping into news, where we discuss the recent revealing of Kakashi’s face, as well as the exciting announcement of the Dragon Ball Super anime!  Dragon Ball fans rejoice!  This will likely be the final nail in the coffin for the awful GT series.

We follow news with a lengthy discussion about some of our favorite sports anime series, along with the yaoi fangirls who just can’t seem to get enough of them…  Following that we turn our discussion towards the currently airing anime that we’ve been watching, such as Yuki Nagato and Punchline,as well as Alex and I talking at great length on our mutual love for ‘My Love Story’ (Ore Monogatari).  We do end up revealing some spoilers up through episode 3, so I’d recommend catching up to that point before listening to this.  You’ve been warned!

Episode 14: A Horrible Age Of Paid Alpha Testing

Ermahgerd Paid MerdsSteam introduced the concept of paying for MODs this past week, which (unsurprisingly) caused lots of PC gamers to throw a fit. Ben and Alex spend the first chunk of today’s episode trying to convince Jared that paid MODs are not a bad thing, and from there it’s on to news about Adults-Only games and shuddered game studios.

The Top 3 List this week is “Favorite Videogame Princesses” of all time, followed by The Worst Thing That Happened To Us This Week and a quick round of What You Been Playin’ Bro?.
