Molehill Mountain Episode 87 – Publishers and Politicians


It’s like they’re trying to piss us off.

  • 0:00 – Monster Hunter World’s DLC is grossly overpriced.
  • 10:18 – YouTube’s recommendations algorithm sucks.
  • 28:38 – Game developer uses malware as DRM. It goes about as well as you’d expect.
  • 41:34 – ESA doesn’t want you to enjoy anything it can’t make money off of, bemoans it sees no revenue from admission fees of museums displaying video games that have long since been end-of-life’d.
  • 56:28 – Konami is monetizing extra save slots. Seriously.
  • 1:02:38 – Assassin’s Creed: Origins’ educational spin off saddled with unnecessary censorship.
  • 1:09:26 – Politicians are being dumb about video games. Again.

8:01 PMlittlegittelpokemon go did that shit. RUDE

8:02 PMfroilen13imagine if the other game the one you need to find coins to go backwards charge micro transactions?

8:02 PMScottyJayManI think you’re thinking of Resident evil mercenaries for 3DS. Only 1 save which can’t be erased, so would devalue reselling.

8:07 PMScottyJayManWhen young, I thought The David in Michelangelo’s Davis was his dong

8:20 PMaddictedtochaosOn top of the state sales tax.

8:23 PMScottyJayManPerhaps guns should be taxed, I’m sure they cause quite a number of mental health issues

8:27 PMaddictedtochaosIt the politician mindset of “something must be done, this is something, therefore I must do it.”

8:28 PMScottyJayManDoes everyone in Rhode Island sound like peter griffin?

8:34 PMScottyJayManMario Maker would be perfect for this

8:34 PMaddictedtochaosMario maker as well
