    The finale situation that you play at the college seems to come off as a teaser for the sequel to R6 Siege. It seriously comes across as, "Hey, we didn't really have time to get a full fledged and polished campaign into the game before our deadline, so we'll give you this little taste to rustle yo' jimmies. See you next year."

    TBH "insurgency" has killed every 'RL' FPS games for me...this includes Call of Dooty, but yeah Rainbow 6 is way better with friends.

      That explains why she's making Situation jokes.

    I know I might be late in noticing but, I love how The Patch graphic's loading bar on the front of the table progressively loads while the podcast is going. Nice touch.

    Wow, really liked the new guest on this patch. She kinda reminds me of someone. Who is she? The one on the middle, with the blond hair...?

    Man...remember when games had single player? We could play a game without actually needing friends!

    In Rainbow 6 Siege, you are able to filter on what Terrorist Hunt/Multiplayer map or mode you want!

    I just noticed the episode title on Youtube changed from "Are Games Shipping Too Broken?" on this site to "Why is EVERY Game Broken?" Why is that?

    This was very much the "Meg and Ryan Show". If you look at Ashley at any point while Meg and Ryan are going at it, she looks fed up. She may not be, but she sure does look that way.

      She might still be recovering from the Amazing Race, though.

      I get the feeling that Ashley isn't super fond of Ryan, but that's Just based on a few instances.

    I think this would be a great game to put in your cylinder of things it's called The room or The room 2

    Please clear things up with Jeff Gerstmann. People still think y'all "attacked" him because y'all were sponsored by Bethseda.

      Atleast give me a reason instead of just downvoting me. I think it's stupid and horribly blown out of proportion, too, and it's sad that this is still brought up, but people are still spreading false rumors because of it and I just wish they would atleast prove them wrong without addressing it directly.

    Seeing you guys question your information when you have laptops and tablets, one would assume with internet access, is really annoying.

    Don't be afraid to Google something if you're unsure, rather watch/listen to you quickly check something than hear you spouting slightly skewed or flat out incorrect info.

    Honestly, a few years ago, I would've also been excited for Psychonauts 2. But with the way Double Fine has handled recent games, (Broken Age being split into 2 parts and then being awful, Spacebase DF-9 going from alpha to "done", Massive Chalice just being shit) I don't know why ANYONE is trusting Tim Schafer to not massively screw this up. Especially when he keep adding days to the Fig campaign, so yes, it will eventually be funded. Just don't complain when you're let down by Schafer again.

    According to psychologists a comprehensive talk about sex is best and that would include talking about the different types of relationships. Just finished my college human sexuality course the other day and that was a big part of it.

    Yes. games are shipping to broken. if you are not nintendo then your game tends to have bugs that needs patching almost immediately after launch. that's why i like nintendo. their quality control is so much better then most other companies.

    Whenever they mention Gavin's sandwich currency, I always wonder if anyone in the comments mention the Big-Mac index from The Economist. I know of at least one other economist in the RT community that would know about. Really weird takeaway for me from this podcast, but still love it. Welcome back, Ashley!

      Never heard of it, but I was thinking, while watching that part, that it'd make more sense to pick something like a Big Mac that's basically the same anywhere you go. Just saying Sandwich can have a number of differences affecting the price.

    Phantasy Star Universe (MMO) for the Xbox 360 had a great demo.


    It had a level cap at 20, which meant the size was much smaller than the full game since it didn't need to load areas, enemies, or items over lvl 20. No time limit on it, however at the end of each month, they would wipe all of the character data, so you'd have to start over.

    Given that it's about games releasing that don't work, is it ironic or meta that the video doesn't work?


    I don't really mind though, I'll catch it later, when it's all good and ready, til then Fallout 4!

    The video does little skips forward in over the whole timeline.

      Yep, same here. Usually skips ahead around 5 - 20 seconds each time. The same thing was happening when I was watching the most recent Sportsball, too.
