    Hilarious episode guys. The funniest podcast episode I’ve head in a long time, and I listen to a lot of podcasts.

Might be worth noting that the Breath of Fire III you guys speak of is actually a PSP title compatible with Vita and PS TV

According to GameSpot anyways:

Great episode. Looking forward to the big 200! Keep up the awesome work!

The first game that came to mind regarding a “masterpiece” would be The Last of Us. It took me completely by surprise, and I was glued to its campaign and multiplayer for months.

Great episode. Lots of sound effects this time :P Looking forward to the 200th.

I’m really excited for Breath of Fire 3 next week! Its one of my favorite rpgs ever. I might even say it’s a gaming masterpiece! Actually, my picks for gaming masterpieces we would be: GTA Vice City, Bioshock, Dragon Quest 8, Skies of Arcadia and Shenmue. At least those are my picks for today, haha.

Great show guys and looking forward to 200! Sid has the same idea as myself when it comes to video game masterpieces. Any game that has given me the feels after playing it I feel deserves that title. Games such as The Last of Us, Journey, the original Metal Gear Solid and MGS4. Those are just a few of the games that have affected me emotionally and why I hold them in such a high regard.

Another awesome episode guys. Really cool you were able to get Michael Bay to direct this one.

Blogcast & chill?

Nice to hear Crimsonland get another mention!


+ Red-Til-I-Die on February 5th, 2016 at 9:16 pm said:

Easily one of my favorite blogcast episodes. From the zany sound effects to Sid deciding to start cleaning his desk after not speaking for 10 seconds, this blogcast had it all! Congrats to Tom Gilmore for getting the plat in The Witness.

Listening for the first time, new PS4 owner.

Wow, y’all were on fire this week! The sound effects were out of control, in a good way that is…

Quote of the week: “sweet, sweet, booze.”

It’s hard coming up with playstation masterpieces that you guys didn’t already touch on. My list would definitely include half life 2, skyrim, metal gear solid, bioshock, the last of us, final fantasy vii, portal 1 & 2, gran tourismo 2, and most recently the witcher 3. I could go much deeper than that, but I’ll stick with playstation games for the castchat.

Hey Justin,
congrats on the plat. I got it a while ago but went back for obelisk fun which I just finished (if you see Mr Blow please tell him to f himself for that eclipse puzzle, seriously). was going to do 100% but the audio logs aren’t as rewarding for me so I think I will put this down and leave my pond with unblossomed flowers:(
