Molehill Mountain Episode 171 – The Stick’s Short End

No matter how awesome something is, I’ll find something to complain about.

  • 9:39 – Female characters got the short end of the stick with Monster Hunter World Iceborne’s new Buff Bod armor
  • 17:33 – The seventh episode of The Mandalorian is a big step up from recent episodes
  • 21:44 – The Cats movie is getting a day one update to improve its visual effects
  • 32:09 – Nintendo’s spying is simultaneously interesting and creepy

7:36 PMBryan GillisMaybe 100 hours or so total

7:36 PMjordan thompson12 seconds

7:36 PMSusanne ChristI think I got 42 with around 500 hrs

7:36 PMBryan GillisActually… that’s probably way high

7:37 PMBryan GillisHmm… Maybe 12 in the charity stream. Outside of that probably not much. So maybe 20 total?

7:37 PMotritzu75-ish in the last year. I think you played it in January.

7:40 PMSusanne ChristMario v capcom xD

7:40 PMaddictedtochaosWould absolutely buy a Mario vs Capcom game

7:41 PMSusanne Christsorry 500 hr requirement for fanboy status

7:41 PMjordan thompsonyou can have ryu vs mega man in smash and tekken x street fighter

7:41 PMBryan GillisWhat’s the next Nintendo game you’re excited for?

7:42 PMotritzuOne of the Tekken guys is an Assist Trophy.

7:43 PMjordan thompsonwhat would it take for you to go to ghostbusters afterlife in full ghostbusters costume

7:43 PMotritzuI’ve played 1227 hours across 123 games. I’m pretty set as far as keeping my Nintendo Gamer Card.

7:43 PMBryan GillisHmm, thinking about it, probably Andrew’s $50 total or less rule combined with Nintendo’s lack of discounts is a big reason for not playing too many Switch games

7:44 PMotritzuLast half a decade, anyway.

7:44 PMjordan thompsonyou should do a brand deal with mentos for bad breath of the wild 2

7:45 PMSusanne Christhave u been plaaying dragon quest?

7:45 PMaddictedtochaosXenoblade X is pretty cheap at GameStop I think

7:46 PMotritzuLink’s Awakening Switch was pretty good. Xenoblade X needs to be remastered.

7:47 PMSusanne Christit sucks ur library dosent have switch games

7:48 PMjordan thompsonis toys to life dead???

7:48 PMjordan thompsonamiibo seems to bearly be kicking

7:49 PMSusanne Christnoooo lol literally libaray

7:49 PMotritzuIt’s less the graphics need updating and the menu systems needs an overhaul.

7:49 PMSusanne Christu know…the one with books

7:50 PMSusanne ChristI have 4 liabries that have video games

7:52 PMjordan thompsonany intrest in Pokemon since its on the main console this time around

7:52 PMotritzuI’ve got one pokemon I haven’t caught in the Dex in Shield.

7:52 PMBryan GillisXC2 is so slow to start that even in 30 hours you won’t have the full combat system unlocked… I enjoyed it, but Andrew, save your money on that one.

7:53 PMBryan GillisI used to defend Pokemon on the two games thing

7:54 PMBryan GillisBut since they started splitting more than Pokemon available, it was obvious it was a cash grab. Not cool

7:55 PMBryan GillisI’d actually be cooler with it if the differences were more slight, thanks to trading being a big point of it

7:55 PMotritzuA quarter of the way through, yes.

7:56 PMotritzuYou don’t get the flight package until you get to three quarters.

7:56 PMjordan thompsonif I’m not mistaken both have diffrent stories that are congruent to one another

7:57 PMSusanne Christhappy weekend!

7:57 PMBryan GillisTrading is apparently horribly implemented in the latest game. If you want to trade with someone, you both pick one code (out of a thousand possible) and hope you connect with the right person

7:57 PMBryan GillisThanks for the podcast, Andrew. Happy Christmas!
