A few questions for Sid or anyone who can answer.

(I posted this before listen to the blogcast)

1. Will I be able to pre-order Transistor on the PSN soon?
2. Will there be a Plus Discount on the game?
3. Will you guys be doing anything for the blog community for attaining E3? I remember Jeff was really great at getting frequent people that come on the blog to E3. Getting the community together. E3 would be great, I really want to attend this year.

    Don’t think we’ve got answers to any of these questions yet, sorry! Stay tuned — we’ll let you know as these things develop.

I saw the Transistor header picture and started throwing money at my monitor. Nothing happened and now I have to clean up all this money.

    I have the same problem, except that image is my desktop wallpaper.

    There’s a lot of money on the floor around my desk.

I guess if you want to make Sid feel dumb, have him read off Hakuoki game titles with no help while everybody else laughs.

Dark Souls with a line through it, LOL! I guess you guys don’t want anymore pitchforks and torches showing up at your work. :)

I saw the new flash sale for this weekend. There isn’t anything I want but I hope you guys continue to have these type of sales. I’m hoping to see another 99 cent indie flash sale soon. Cubixx HD for 99 cents pretty please? Will we ever seen more free games like Jetpack Joyride. That game is so much fun and hope we can see more minis available for free in the future. One last really important request. When Limbo comes to PlayStation Plus this month can we please get it for PlayStation 3 as well? I haven’t been able to experience it yet. :)

I am so incredibly excited to play Transistor. When I was able to play the demo last year at E3, I fell in love. The game is gorgeous, the atmosphere is engrossing, and the gameplay was so fresh and unique. I really like what was mentioned about the marketing. So many times, games are overly marketed and people tend to lose interest because there’s no mystery (I won’t mention any specific IPs). I understand the necessity of advertisement, but there’s a fine line between building a sense of excitement, leaving potential customers in anticipation, and overwhelming people until they lose interest. Great show everyone. Always looking forward to the next one. (o_~*)

Great time to be a gamer.

Don’t let the loud minority get to you guys about Dark Souls II. There is a huge silent majority that listens to what you guys put out, not what thees haters say. Talk about whatever you want. Keep it conversational. Those are the best podcasts, not the ones that are robotic and try to be funny.

Why would anyone dislike talk about a game anyways? I have an idea. Release a separate 2 minute audio log that’s just information for all the cry babies.

Hey Sid and crew,

Great show this week!

I’m looking forward to MLB 14 The Show. Also my two must buy indies announced are Drifter and Ironclad Tactics. I love that so many more indies are coming out on PS4. I also love it when they have cross buy with Vita.



P.S. Can you request to Shu if we can get Destiny of Spirits on to the PS4 and allow us who play it to carry our data over to it, thanks.

Great Show guys!!! Every week i’m patiently waiting for the new Blogcast.

But this week, you didn’t talk about Share Factory!!! Why? It was recorded before the Firmware Update?

It’s there a place where i can share my share factory created videos with the community, i saw a thread but it was in Europe, will you guys do anything like that here.

Thanks guys. Greatness Awaits! BEYOND!.

This has come to my attention:

Look at 11:06 and then 11:20 . Project Cars using Gran Turismo models? Does anyone have any idea about this??

Important question: Where is the picture of the pieces of paper standing on their edge?

LTTP here, but the episode with Sid’s brother was great. It even had a surprise “guest” at the end.
