Molehill Mountain Episode 208 – Two Generations Behind


You can have portable Monster Hunter but it’s going to look like it came out in 2013!

  • 0:18 – Ubisoft, a company that for years has knowingly harbored and protected abusers and sexual predators, changes Gods & Monsters’ name due to a trademark dispute with Monster Energy
  • 8:42 – Microsoft’s selling points for its new Xbox are weird
  • 27:11 – Sony had another PS5 games presentation. There was even some gameplay!
  • 1:08:12 – Two new Monster Hunter games are on their way to the Switch but I only care about one so that’s the one I’m gonna talk about

7:12 PMScrungle himmingworthdemons souls remastered

7:14 PMmatthew wilsonits the equvlent of moving a game from a hdd to sdd, its going to load faster, but its not built to take advantage of ssd

7:15 PMKageNekoSamaxwell pc gamers get SSD usually for a around that cost if it is a good one

7:15 PMScrungle himmingworthI just stated why i would drop $500 turn a new console

7:16 PMScrungle himmingworthbut I’m hyped to hear your opinion on both xbone and sony

7:16 PMmatthew wilsonthere are no games built for those new systems yet, even spiderman is coming out on ps4

7:17 PMKageNekoSamaxwhat about games like dayz

7:17 PMmatthew wilsonits useful if you have a freind that asked you to jump in to mp

7:18 PMSusanne Christlol Eisen doing it the “proper” way

7:18 PMtwistedideasi wouldn’t do it for 4 games at once but it’s a feature that I would like a lot

7:18 PMmatthew wilsonif you want to see a true nextgen game check out flight sim

7:20 PMmatthew wilsonits just dumping ram to ssd, the only restyrictions are storage space

7:20 PMSnowyI think most of the new xbox games are coming to pc too right? I don’t really have a reason to get it

7:20 PMmatthew wilsonrestriction

7:21 PMScrungle himmingwortha new crysis game is coming out

7:21 PMScrungle himmingworththey’re bragging that no computer right now can run it at max

7:22 PMtwistedideasi hope people aren’t using skype

7:22 PMScrungle himmingworthI’m your friend Andrew, or I atleast think I am

7:22 PMKageNekoSamaxthat feature on a handheld would be nuts

7:23 PMSusanne Christit’s almost been a year. other dude doing ok? lol kids didnt eat him did they?

7:24 PMmatthew wilsonthe quick resume is simply a ram dump to ssd, the only restriction is storage space

7:25 PMaddictedtochaosJust found this podcast is now available on Amazon music. Listening to Andrew at half speed makes him sound very drunk, lol.

7:25 PMScrungle himmingworthOh and Anthony Burch is working on the newest god of war

7:25 PMScrungle himmingworthand people are losing their minds

7:26 PMtwistedideashahaha

7:26 PMScrungle himmingworthAnthony has terrible writing

7:26 PMSusanne Christlmao who?! xD

7:26 PMScrungle himmingworthAnthony Burch is a guy from gearbox who worked on borderlands 2.

7:27 PMScrungle himmingworthhe promptly grew a massive ego ans shat on alot of people in the gaming industry and then you know, lost his job

7:27 PMScrungle himmingworththe whole running joke about him is that they say “it could be worse, atleast you arent Anthony Burch”

7:28 PMSusanne Christlol like the Philip guy

7:30 PMaddictedtochaosVisually FF 16 looked boring.


7:32 PMSusanne Christlooked like the freaking witcher

7:32 PMSusanne Christthe witcher sucks

7:32 PMScrungle himmingworththe witcher is good

7:32 PMScrungle himmingworthamazing story

7:32 PMSusanne Christworst…game…ever

7:33 PMScrungle himmingworthno

7:33 PMScrungle himmingworthu

7:33 PMScrungle himmingworthbut it’s not for everyone, I understand that

7:33 PMSusanne Christit’s so boring

7:33 PMKageNekoSamaxfor a presentation is kinda good but if you should be able to skip

7:35 PMaddictedtochaosHave you played Spider-Man for PS4?

7:35 PMKageNekoSamaxgood old meme of PS fans just watching the TV with popcorn comes back

7:36 PMScrungle himmingworthJK Rowling went too woke, I’m honestly surprised she didn’t go crazy sooner

7:37 PMScrungle himmingworthbut back on topic, the ps4 Spider-Man game really does look like the old ps2 Spider-Man game, and I absolutely love it

7:38 PMaddictedtochaosOh yeah, next gen I’m taking your approach to game prices.

7:38 PMScrungle himmingworthyohoho

7:39 PMKageNekoSamaxscripted sequences are great, but if we get an open script sequence with many choices that would be better i guess

7:39 PMScrungle himmingworthscripted sequences are good for showing off the games mechanics well, but too many of them can get tired

7:40 PMScrungle himmingwortha game that does scripted events pretty well is the half life series

7:40 PMSnowyI’m sad they got the dragon’s dogma guy for the new final fantasy, I was hoping for a sequel.

7:41 PMScrungle himmingworthits special edition because you can play as vergil

7:41 PMScrungle himmingworthand all my friends are going crazy, and honestly so did I

7:41 PMaddictedtochaosI think they just added ray tracing to DMC 5

7:42 PMPassTheGrenadePleaseWhat do you think of the price increase for games going 60 to 70, is buying a game at 70 a tough pill to swallow for you

7:43 PMScrungle himmingworth$70 for a video game now? no thanks

7:45 PMScrungle himmingworthhaha yeah you gotta play the games, and yes hes Dante’s brother

7:45 PMKageNekoSamaxyeah i don’t know why inflation didn’t caught up intil now

7:45 PMtwistedideasyes, it’s his brother

7:46 PMaddictedtochaosI will pay $60 but I’m not paying $70. I will simply wait for a sale or price drop.

7:47 PMLynndy Leeyou’d think during a global pandemic, companies would be nicer and charge less

7:47 PMSnowy$70 is too much, triple A devs aren’t exactly going broke either with all the dlc nowadays.

7:47 PMScrungle himmingworthmaybe back then when companies cared about quality, I would say buy at launch

7:47 PMKageNekoSamaxDark souls II had some good glitches that helped early buyers 😆

7:47 PMScrungle himmingworthbut with how garbo games have been as of late, yeah don’t buy at launch

7:48 PMaddictedtochaosI would be willing to pay $70 if it guaranteed a complete game at launch with no loot boxes or micro transactions.

7:49 PMSnowyIt costs that much and my left joycon still has massive drift.

7:50 PMKageNekoSamaxGood old non existent inflation 😆

7:50 PMtwistedideaswhat’s nice with the ps4 is that the remote for my Sony TV can control the menus on the PS4

7:51 PMScrungle himmingworthI despise THAT mentality, just release a game that isnt riddled with bugs.

7:52 PMaddictedtochaosThe ability to patch is nice but too many use it as a crutch.

7:53 PMSnowyIt all started with horse armor…

7:53 PMKageNekoSamaxdepends on the features. right now the only games where you could see your money orth is those with constant updates

7:56 PMScrungle himmingworthwe don’t talk about the horse armor

7:56 PMScrungle himmingworthAWWWWWW YEAH DEMONS SOULS

7:56 PMScrungle himmingworthbut I feel like they’re gonna change too much that made the game fun

7:57 PMScrungle himmingworthplease, just add quality of life changes and leave most of the game untouched, PLEASE

7:58 PMtwistedideasthere were only one or two that i haven’t played or bought from the PS+ collection

8:00 PMSnowyI’m worried about the move to digital and games as a service. I don’t think a disc drive costs as much as they’re asking, but they want to move to digital for higher profits and have more control.

8:00 PMaddictedtochaosPhysical forever

8:00 PMKageNekoSamaxwith i had that much space to store my games

8:01 PMKageNekoSamaxbut also like a lot the fact that i can access my game from almost anywhere in the world

8:02 PMaddictedtochaosI can’t independently verify this, but from what I heard the early preorders was Walmart’s fault. They jumped the gun and everyone else had to follow.

8:04 PMtwistedideasis LittleBigPlanet ps5 exclusive?

8:05 PMKageNekoSamaxDisgaea 6 demn… i need to get a switch now

8:07 PMKageNekoSamaxoh yeah that excessive DRM sucks

8:07 PMAndrew EisenWalmart Ruins E3:…

8:08 PMPassTheGrenadePleaseGravity Rush is so damn good

8:09 PMSnowy🤢

8:09 PMaddictedtochaosWell MH Stories is intended for kids.

8:11 PMtwistedideasCapcom has a fighting game tournament series called Capcom Ultimate Match

8:12 PMtwistedideasor something called that

8:14 PMSnowyIt could be better but I’m looking forward to cooping it.

8:15 PMKageNekoSamaxI mean i love classic MH games and they always looked bad but i loved the amount of features

8:21 PMtwistedideasI had a friend buy the same game twice just to get on the switch then proceed to play it for an hour

8:23 PMSnowyI’m just sad the palamute plush is a Japan only thing.

8:27 PMKageNekoSamaxprobably the pandemic

8:27 PMtwistedideaswas it the bad guy from Jem and the Holograms

8:28 PMLynndy Leeunlikely, Zipper is still rotting in jail

8:28 PMSnowyGnight!

8:28 PMKageNekoSamaxsee ya around good night

8:28 PMPassTheGrenadePleaseGood night
