GMD Ep30: Weirdly Paradoxical

GMD Ep30On this week’s podcast Alex, Ben and Jared discuss the 2016 DICE Awards and why ultimately no one should really care too much about awards and awards shows in general. Also, gamers have found a way to complain about getting a free Windows copy of Quantum Break bundled with the Xbox One version, and Alex is super bummed that the upcoming indie game Moon Hunters is getting delayed for a month.

During The Top Three List of the Week a chat about each host’s “top three favorite games that actually lived up to the pre-release hype” inexplicably leads in to a long philosophical discussion and debate about social development and ethics in online gaming interactions.

OMD Ep11: Sunshine and Rainbows

Otakus Must Die Ep11Today’s episode includes news about Toyota’s bizarre ad campaign that personifies car components as cute anime girls, as well as Akira Toriyama’s recent resolution to dramatically improve the quality of Dragon Ball Super.

The DragonBall discussion continues with Jared and the team reviewing the recently released French fan film “DBZ The Fall of Men” (be sure to check out the film prior to listening to this segment, as it’s pretty spoilery). From there the reviews shift to actual anime with Alex giving her opinion of one of Jared’s all time favorite sports anime series, “Chihayafuru.” Ben is less than impressed.

In the final segment Jared and Alex discuss their thoughts on the Winter season so far. Alex dropped Dagashi Kashi (much to Jared’s chagrin), but they both agree that “Erased” is probably the show to watch this season. Alex also gives her thoughts on “Grimgar of Fanatsy and Ash” and how its put a new, and interesting spin on the “trapped in an MMO’ genre.
