Letter Time Edit

Q: Why does Pat say "I ironically love blank"? from Nathan

  • Matt: To be clear.
  • Pat: Because hipsters exist, and they ironically love shit all the time. I ironically love pro wrestling, but I unironically love pro wrestling.
  • Woolie: It's so bad, it's good.

Q: Do you have any experience with Guilty Gear and if so, what's the learning curve like? from Julian

  • Liam: Can't get enough of abrupt time skip. I'm sick of chromatic aberration.

  • Matt: I'm sick of everything being shades of grey.
  • Pat: I'm also sick of everything being shades of grey. I'm way into the trope of the hero succeding being the culmination of everything they've done (i.e. the combination in the final episode of season one of the Hajime no Ippo anime and the Social Links in Persona 3 and Persona 4.

Q: Hypothetical question: you go to someone's house to play a competitive two player game. They only have one first-party controller and one shitty third-party controller. What do you do. from Nicholas

  • Pat: Leave!
  • Liam: Hold the Mad Katz Ninja Skeleton controller, feel your hands bleed and you play!
  • Matt: Rock-paper-scissors
  • Woolie: If I'm better at the game, I'll take the bad controller. Even ground? We RPS, loser takes it.

Q: Have you had an experience where someone you respected and followed bashed something you're super into and how do you deal with it? from Gavin and a bunch of other people
