That old extremely short-lived Mortal Kombat cartoon came up on the Beastcast, which made me remember this

KOMBAT TIME

Dan's flip on Red Dead was quite the thing to listen to. I don't recall how much Brad enjoyed it, because unless he goes to bat for it in GOTY I feel like it has lost the top spot.

The so-called Giant Bomb holiday lull is a hoax perpetrated by Chinese scientists.

:siren GOTY DELIBERATIONS ARE GO :siren



(also in the podcast feeds of course)



the categories appear to be...

Best Style
Best Music
Best Debut
Hottest Mess
Best Moment or Sequence
Best Story
Best Ongoing Game
Best Looking
Most Disappointing
Best Game

no shock that Best World didn't survive the 2017 deliberations. :pac

The first few lists are also up (Ben, Dan, Rorie) plus a bunch of guest lists (Rami! Maffew! Mary Kish! Will Smith!) And they're doing more Sims stuff tomorrow!

I'm not gonna play it but day 5 made me want to check out some Rainbow Six Siege streams at the very least.

Haha Thor fuck that Most Disappointing "discussion". The new format didn't stop the clusterfuck there. :pacbean But Vinny is a star.

I wonder how much of that discussion would've happened if Dan had been just a little slower at Red Dead and never reached the turn he took on it.

Really into this concept even if it's a one-shot.

Friday's Waypoint Radio is a delight. Those conversations about Ace Combat 7 and My Time At Portia, man.

funny you should mention weird plots 'cause here comes Waypoint's series of lore pods attempting to explain Kingdom Hearts and it's wild



also Mass Alex 2 has begun! what a season, what a season. jezus, I almost forgot how good ME2's opening is, it's gotta be on a top 5 list somewhere.

That'd be a fun category to crowd source, best 5 video game opening sequences. With the bare minimum of consideration my nomination would be Symphony of the Night - you get to beat up Dracula as Richter and then experience a powerful Alucard before Death jacks all your good gear.

The comic recap at the start of ME2 is objectively now probably the best way to experience ME1 :pac
