Chat Transcript:

4:59 PMaddictedtochaosHello

5:01 PMaddictedtochaosI can see you

5:02 PMotritzuEvenin, Andrew.

5:02 PMMercenary THUGWhat is the most hilarious anime you watched?

5:05 PMjordan thompsonhey oh, I’m bed ridden since I injured my foot so a good podcast brightens up the day.

5:05 PMotritzuAh, so you have to deal with the usual stream delay thing.

5:05 PMotritzuSeems like every streaming site I watch has it.

5:06 PMjordan thompsonany main focus or can we ask random questions

5:07 PMMercenary THUGMy favorite is Highschool DXD

5:08 PMotritzuIt leans a bit hard on the ecchi stuff

5:08 PMotritzuIt makes it easy to make porn of HS DXD

5:11 PMjordan thompsonthe way I view it is its a adaptation not a direct recreation, I’ll admit it doesnt look good but it’s their version of sonic. I hope they have a original sonic cut when its on blu ray.

5:16 PMaddictedtochaosEven Sega wasn’t pleased with Sonic’s look.

5:17 PMotritzuThey’ve got the money to buy the licenses. They can do that. However, keeping the license when they do a bad job gets harder.

5:18 PMjordan thompsonI’m also a film purist and even if the look wasnt good I’d really like to see both versions made available to the public

5:19 PMjordan thompsondid you watch the Japanese teaser for the Monster Hunter movie

5:19 PMaddictedtochaosFox is the perfect example of how to do a licensed property incorrectly.

5:20 PMaddictedtochaosIt wasn’t X-Men it was the Fox version of X-Men.

5:22 PMjordan thompsonas much as there are still tones of bad movies based on video games I kinda want some bad games based on current movies

5:22 PMaddictedtochaosVenom was Sony

5:24 PMaddictedtochaosUbisoft just can’t get out of their own way.

5:25 PMjordan thompsongot any thoughts on Wal-Mart taking down violent game ads

5:28 PMDesert RainNo arguments there Andrew, say one thing wrong or do one thing wrong? Be prepared for shit to hit the fan.

5:28 PMjordan thompsonI’d be awesome to have a video game like “house of cards” politics can play very well to any media it just has to have a compelling risk at stake to keep people interested.

5:30 PMDesert RainJordan Thompson, yeah, I got a thought. How stupid.

5:31 PMjordan thompsonAndrew context is a dead language and it’s scary

5:31 PMDesert RainBasically Wal-Mart shot themselves in the foot.

5:32 PMaddictedtochaosWal-Mart pulling violent game ads doesn’t bother me, it is just ads, and I rarely buy games from them anyway.

5:33 PMjordan thompsonJohn Lennon was killed because someone read a book, people blame everything random on bad stuff that happens

5:38 PMDesert RainBut of course, that’s how they always roll when they don’t want to take responsibility for their inflammatory rhetoric.

5:39 PMjordan thompsonwhen people talk about restriction on guns my go to is “you do know knifes have been around way longer and so has been mass murder.”

5:40 PMDesert RainTo which I say, “True, but knife wielders can be stopped a lot quicker and knives don’t fire 20 – 50 rounds of ammunition per second.”

5:43 PMjordan thompsonI go to the theater 3 times a week for a few hours out of that day, if I get killed I get killed as much as I don’t wanna die. I’m just gonna enjoy my time and hope for the best.

5:43 PMOmega-Metal-Chase92@Andrew Eisen I agree man. I wish that our government would do more.

5:44 PMDesert RainWell, when your time comes, your time comes. I do agree, Carpe Diem.

5:45 PMjordan thompsonas much as I go to the theater I cant wait for my heart to give out in my theater seat as a 70 year old man and freak the hell out of some teenagers

5:46 PMDesert RainHave fun and enjoy the sushi. If they got ramen there, get a big bowl of it. If Snoo-Snoo came in the form of food, Tonkatsu ramen is it!

5:49 PMjordan thompsonkinky

5:49 PMDesert RainAh, are you someone who has a soft spot for felines? Me too.

5:51 PMjordan thompsonI finished reading the 1986 aliens novelization, nearly all of the cursing was taken out which felt weird.

5:52 PMjordan thompsonalso the jaws nes game us

5:52 PMjordan thompsonsorry phone screwed up. I was saying jaws NES is a cult game now

5:53 PMDesert RainIndeed, the Jaws NES game is one of those that it is so bad it’s good.

5:56 PMjordan thompsondid anyone ever play the jaws unleashed on ps2

5:56 PMDesert RainI haven’t, but I saw some game play footage of it. Looked interesting and cheesy.

5:58 PMjordan thompsonthe worst by far is the jaws universal parks game

5:59 PMDesert RainNever played it but I heard that Universal Studios game was a nightmare.

5:59 PMDesert RainI got three cats of my own that I wouldn’t trade for the world, and hope to eventually adopt an oriental shorthair cat.

6:01 PMjordan thompsonI still want jaws 19

6:02 PMDesert RainThat’s awesome, great way to get the kitty fix when you can’t adopt one.

6:03 PMDesert RainBut oriental shorthair kitties are beautiful, love their unique appearance, especially their big, floppy and expressive ears.

6:05 PMjordan thompsonhave you ever had to fight a glitchy game to play it

6:10 PMjordan thompsonAndrew your god complex is showing
