Letter Time Edit

Q: Why do you hate Ni No Kuni? from Geome

  • Pat: I got in it for the whimsy and not the battle system, and then it gets too grindy. Too much random battles.
  • Matt: Everyone loves the start of the game.
  • Liam: It's a perfect good game, just not what I wanted.

Q: How would you feel about homemade chocolate given to your significant other on Valentine's Day? from Scotevous

  • Matt: I think that's super sweet, even if it's made poorly.

Q: If you were to open a themed store or restaurant, what would it be? I'd make a barber called Uppercuts next to a boxing ring. from Nash

  • Everyone: Uncle Mo's.

Q: My friend won't play Mortal Kombat because it doesn't have airdashes. Is he being narrow-minded? Have you ever refused to play a game because it lacked a specific mechanic? from Brad

  • Woolie: There's different reasons to love different games, but he's narrow-minded if that's the deal breaker.
  • Pat: If he loves air combat like in Arcsys games, he's not gonna like it. Have him play the game so you can at least have a secondary reason.
  • Liam: I've written off a few beat 'em ups for not having grappling mechanics.

Q: I'm trying to get my friends to try the new Killer Instinct, but they say the releasing of the DLC in seasons is a scam. from Joseph

  • Pat: That is... awesome.
  • Woolie: Ignorance to the point of hilarity.
  • Liam: Killer Instinct is possibly the best free-to-play model ever.
  • Matt: While it's a good model, I don't want every fighting game to be like that.

Q: Are you all cable cutters? from Austin

Everyone: Yep.

Q: Your final attack: single hit or multi-hit? from Bernard

  • Pat: Single hit.
  • Woolie: Single hit.
  • Liam: Multi-hit.
  • Matt: I could have it either way.

Q: How have you managed to dodge the Nintendo orbital strike on Zaibatsu headquarters for using "Green Greens" this long? from Jacob

  • Woolie: Machinima lets us use video game music freely.
  • Matt: I think it's just because it's such a tiny cut.

Q: What's your favourite episode of GameCenter CX? from Oliver

  • Pat: I know mine's Battletoads 'cause I've never seen anything but.
  • Woolie: Princess Tomato in the Salad Kingdom.
  • Liam: Clock Tower.

Q: What's your favourite Hajime no Ippo intro? from Michael

  • Everyone: The second one.

Q: What's your favourite nickname for a weapon? For example: "Jessie" in Mass Effect 2. from Leo

  • Pat: The Peacemaker, with honourable mention to the BFG.
  • Woolie: The spiritual reincarnations of Masumane.

Q: What is a game you were individually a fan of, but you knew that the rest of us wouldn't like until you introduced to a certain mechanic? from Kyle

  • Pat: Woolie needs parrying. I'd need stupid dialogue branches.
  • Liam: For Woolie, it'd have to be cards.
  • Woolie: Liam would need cards. Matt needs a throwback to some old shit, or from an era of stupid shit. Pat needs either basic level DSM or psyche topics or the most min/maxing ever.

Zaibatsu Watch Edit

  • Liam: Resident Evil 2: Revelations
  • Pat: Monster Hunter 4 and I'll start Majora's Mask.
  • Woolie: I'm gonna buy Majora's Mask.

Trivia Edit

  • The music used in the outro is "Theme of Laura" from Silent Hill 2.
