    Someone needs to tell Kerry you get awarded the Shiny Charm for catching all 718. Enhances your chances of encountering legit shiny Pokemon.

    Has the Mario Kart Let's Play come out? I do not see it but I may have missed it. My apologies if I misheard.

    I think what made Minecraft's early access model work was that Notch really didn't know what the game was going to become when he released it. A lot of elements of the game came from public feedback such as pistons, powered rail, an others. If a developer knows exactly what they want their game to be than early access really isn't necessary. Minecraft's early access was more of an experiment than a development cycle.

    Most media outlets covered the Kinect-less Xbox One as a betrayal by Microsoft because Microsoft spent so much of their press time last year talking about how the Kinect was integral to the Xbox One experience. www.forbes.com/sites/gordonkelly/2014/05/19/microsoft-just-short-changed-everyone-who-has-bought-an-xbox-one/ Clearly, it's not and, as Adam pointed out, it still seems like the Kinect is/was a cash grab since at least all of that audio tech could've been done with the headset (which originally didn't ship with the One).

    However, we know RT and AH has contracts and deals with Microsoft involving content (RvB, Trials, etc...), so I guess that's why their commentary on the subject left a lot to be desired, especially from the "average gamer" perspective.

    Found this patch quite enjoyable. The B-team was entertaining.

    Honestly, I'm not trying to be an ass. But you spent maybe 5 minutes on the Xbox removing Kinect and the HUGE shift in Microsoft's plans for the One, but more than 40 minutes on Pokemon and Mario-kart. Seems the priorities of this weeks gaming podcast was more than a little off.

    @kerry I did the exact same thing with the google docs, except it was for the national pokedex (ALL poke's). You need two DS' to trade from Gen4 to Gen5, and you play some recatching mini game with six pokemon at a time, then Gen5 to Bank to Gen6 is easy. It's good to leave atleast one good catching pokemon in each game just in case you need to go back to it.

    The thing about the kalos dex is that you need to have caught/evolved/hatched every pokemon IN Kalos FROM a Kalos pokemon for it to count as Kalos pokemon and get the crown next to the dex.

    You kinda need bank to hold your living pokedex (if you're into that) and some pokemon are just frustratingly hard to get, the main ones being the ones you need to trade w/ item to evolve, and the GTS is mostly unhelpful. Just try searching for Stantler, it's really hard to get from the GTS. Good luck with that :p (although if you do start trying for the national dex, I can trade with you for the really rare non-legendaries like Stantler *wink*friendrequest me*wink*)

    I honestly hate the way that 14 games on the One are actual like graphic heavy games and the rest of them are either side scrollers or cartoony or even top down arcade like games. I got the One for games like the 14 graphic heavy games not the rest of the 40 some odd games on for it. For me a game should be able to utilize the consoles top graphic potential and not the shit that those games are in my opinion if i want games that make me feel nastalgic ill go to the old non hd game consoles that i have not the HD 1080p console that i paid 500 dollars for.

    Its funny how much I love the B team, I love the A team. The fact that this is the B team is a testimony to how great RT is!

    The patch's set is way more pleasant than than the RT podcast one. The lighting seems way less harsh here.

    Anyways, I love it when the crew is moved around with. Having younger members like Kerry or Ray create new discussions about hip stuff like the pokeymans.

    I'm pretty sure they mentioned it in the past, but just how close is the AH room from the set? Can hear the guys having a great time in the background when listening with my headphones. Is it possible to reduce the sensitivity of the microphones? Because I don't think you'll get the lads to quieten down, and I wouldn't want them to haha.

    • SkullYacht FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      Sadly there is no easy way to bring down mic sensitivity without effecting the entire mix of The Patch. Most likely we will always have some interruption from AH during The Patch in our new stage, since we stream the show earlier in the day. I'm sorry for the inconvenience.

  • MrTripleM

    You get a Shiny Charm, if you have every Pokemon in the Pokedex. It will increase the chance of getting shinies by some factor, I think with the two languages breeding trick it increases to 1 in 1000 chance of breeding a shiny.

    While I love the energy everyone has for The Patch, there were a lot of interrupting going on and it was hard following what people wanted to talk about. A little frustrating but still fun nonetheless.

    One thing has been annoying me about these nature box advertisements ever since they started... So they are saying that if it is 12AM, 3AM, ect and I am hungry, I should NOT go to the vending machine and instead order nature box... and wait for it to arrive instead??? I get their idea but it doesn't make sense XD

    I like Kerry and all, but he likes to interrupt a lot and he seems too childish for The Patch. I've always seen the podcast as a goof off, have fun stream, and The Patch as more of a more serious dialog about video games and Kerry just doesn't seem to be a good fit. I like him in Lets Plays and the podcast, but The Patch... no.

    • KnownSecret

      I see what your talking about. I don't have a problem with Kerry either, but his interruptions did sidetrack the conversations. At one point, Adam even changed his topic to Kerry's and didn't finish what he was talking about. It almost happened to Ashley but she just spoke louder and won out, LOL. Kudos to you for the risky and honest post, usually any criticism or critique of rooster-teeth peeps ends up with severe down-votes by the community.

    I remember back on PS2 when I would play SOCOM, and it could take voice commands through headset. So I never understood why Xbox couldn't do the headset commands and insisted on Kinect. Then again, I use my Kinect all the time. I willingly use it on the dashboard, Netflix menus, and voice commands, but I do hope they add the ability to do voice command through a headset with the new Kinect-less release.

    That was a solid "B" team, listening to Kerry's story and seeing Ashley's face the whole time was priceless comedy. I love when you guys have Adam on, him and Ryan are my favorites to hear discuss games because they generally approach them from an objective mindset similar to my own.
    Mario Kart is sadly that one game I never got to play on N64 and I haven't owned a Nintendo system since then so I guess I'm missing out. Still great to hear about the game and I'm glad RoosterTeeth got an early copy.

    In all Mario Kart games there has been a theoretical way to block a blue shell. If you had a banana peel or bomb-omb if you timed it right and threw it in front of you it could hit the blue shell as it circled you and destroy it mid-air

    On a different note, Bkerry's Pokémon docs sounds like Geoff's Viva Pinata spreadsheets.

    IM tired of early access games. developers need to just make a game in full and release it...then make updates after that for bugs that they didn't catch ect. there are way to many games that are early access and its annoying. just give us a fully done,, polished product.,

    • tanukivilla FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      Early Access games are basically another form of crowd sourcing allowing a developer to get paid to finish a product. The fact of the matter is you, the public, keep buying them, which makes it a successful business model which means more developers will use it. The public keeps thinking that Early Access is a treat for them as if they are getting something before anyone else (ignoring the fact that most Early Access games are open to a wide part of the public) and so the cycle continues. If you want Early Access to go away then people en masse need to stop buying Early Access titles, but as long as it's a profitable business model, I wouldn't expect change anytime soon.

      "if the game will NEED a day one patch and NEEDS to install somewhere and can't be run just as a disk (like the glory days), it's not a finished product to me. I'd prefer them to push the release date back and give a finished game."
      Most day one patches are things that the developer knows are broken but aren't severe and they won't have time to fix before going to certification submission (cert). Patches are for problems you find only late in development and they allow developers to fix these things without missing submission or release deadlines.
      This is why a publisher would almost never move the developer's release date, because it would cost them both a lot of money. Think about how much a publisher spends just on marketing a game and then they'll have to change all of that marketing at the last minute because the release date changed. Even something simple like changing text on a website costs money, money most publishers don't want to part with.
      Then there is the fact that these games were promised to retailers and online stores on a certain date and now all those deals have to change. Not to mention that it makes the developer look incompetent which isn't a good thing if you're 3rd party and looking to continue your relationship with the publisher. In short, changing release dates for console games is an incredibly costly affair that both developers and publishers try to avoid by any means necessary, because it's far cheaper to patch a game than to move its release date

      "Batman: Arkham Origins gave me that exact problem. Even though it had a day one patch it was still crashing all the time"
      This goes back to what I was saying about cert. Because these patches aren't part of cert and occur after their stability is always questionable. This is sometimes why console developers have to make a patch for their patch.

      Hope that helps make things clearer as to why the games industry does what it does.

      Batman: Arkham Origins gave me that exact problem. Even though it had a day one patch it was still crashing all the time, and after the second time that it corrupted my save file I just washed my hands of the game and moved on to something else.

      I'm fine with early release games when it comes to steam, but not on consoles, if the game will NEED a day one patch and NEEDS to install somewhere and can't be run just as a disk (like the glory days), it's not a finished product to me. I'd prefer them to push the release date back and give a finished game.

    In Mario Kat Wii, you could avoid a blue shell by using a mushroom at the last possible moment. Problem is you almost never get mushrooms in 1st place.
