    I hope they consider hiring Charlie as a permanent member of Funhaus

    Audio quality is still pretty poor, and the audio podcast version is very, very quiet. I have to blast volume about 50% higher than the RT Podcast this week.

    I dont quite understand James' views on why the rating system of games and yelp reviews and other things are bad. Lawrence pointed out that people think of these scores like school grades and he is right I feel.


    James seems to be saying that when scoring anything out of 10, 5 should be the average, or at least thought of as not shit because it is only the half way point, like when he said 2 out of 5 stars for a restaurant shouldn't be low because it was only just below the half way point.


    However, as Lawrence said people equate these scores to grades and in school if you got a grade of 50% you did terrible, like not just kind of bad, you did fucking awful, even if you get a C grade in something this is still not a good grade. Maybe to some it isn't the worst but to most people if they got a C in a class or on an assignment they did pretty bad and will want to improve.


    And if 5/10 should be the average then again looking at this compared to school a C the "average grade" is not actually the average grade most people get, even doing a quick google search the responses I got said that the average GPA for most High Schoolers is 3.0 or around there and that equates to a B.


    So back to the point, why should 5/10 not be considered bad? Review scores are essentially grades for games and so if the game is even a little bit good it should be 7/10. And that is how a lot of people view game scores I feel. I'm sorry if I came across as one of those internet commenters that always like to point thing out that you guys say wrong, because I'm not trying to do that. I'm just saying that the current system of games scoring seems to be working pretty well so why is it so bad to James?

    Here's that song called "I Eat Shit" that Cr1tikal was talking about. One of the best songs of this millennium

      My god, when Cr1tkal was talking about this I had no idea what he was talking about, but as soon as I hit play on the video I instantly remembered the work of art that is this song. Thank you sir for posting this.

    I love the new set, I really do, it adds a more professional feel to the podcast, as well as the fanshow. My only problem is that now because of it, it seems less likely to have people drop in and talk about a topic they might be interested in. For example, it would always be a highlight of the video when you would call in Elyse, or Peake, or really any of the other on screen personalities just to discuss something, or even to respond to something you said about them, however due to the nature of the set this doesn't seem as likely to happen. And I know that the people on dude soup were the ones hired to be on-screen personalities, and the others weren't, but it was always nice to see everyone that we've come to love on dude soup every now and again.

      None of them were hired to be "on-screen personalities", its just that Elyse and Peake are probably working and/or don't want to be on the podcast nearly as much. And Omar is working behind the scenes, and Dan is still being slowly introduced to the Youtube audience who collectively fear change.


      Other than that I actually agree.

    They need theme music like the RT podcast and Off Topic. It would make the end cut a lot less awkward.

    GMOs aren't proven to be inherently bad (We also don't yet know the long-term effects, but it depends on what they're genetically modified to do. You can't tell me genetically modifying a carcinogenic pesticide that can melt cement into a plant is healthy.

      It depends on the trait you're trying to transfer from one plant to another. Without GMOs we'd be fucked and not have enough food.

      We'd be fine without GMOs, they're primarily there to increase production and aesthetic quality. Less apples with spots on them and shit like that. The idea that we'd all starve to death without them is absurd.

    Couldn't agree more with James.... I think that Uncharted is a movie trying to be a game with a story that's isn't that interesting.

    I've ranted before about why I disagree with James on The Last of Us, but I actually feel like all of his criticisms for that game apply to Uncharted. I love TLOU because it has a great story and world while also being an engaging survival horror with well implemented combat mechanics.


    But I was bored as fuck playing through the first 3 Uncharted's and personally feel like they don't deserve half of the praise they get. Everything about the story and the experience of playing them is just cliche and extreme mediocrity to me. That's why I get mad when people lump these two Naughty Dog franchises together, they just don't even compare.

      If James' comments about TLOU apply to Uncharted then surely they do compare...

      Except I don't feel like they apply to TLOU.

    they need to do like the RT podcast and have a microphone in-front of each of them instead of these shitty mini mics on their shirts. the sound makes me want to stop listening it is so bad. or maybe have one big mike above the set like in Off Topic

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

      The RT Podcast set is much more enclosed and they're not playing video games while on it. But the sound does need work.

    Fucking hell, what a way to open. "The fuselage is so well built, most people survive the crash and burn or drown to death." This is the sort of content I want to pay money for.

    I read the review from the Washington Post guy and everyone is entitles to their own opinion but I do wonder if he played the same game as the rest of us

    I wish Lawrence didn't appear to have such a critical view of himself. I think he adds a lot, he's really funny. He also adds very thoughtful takes when they talk about movies, I love his writing on the Know and I think he's handsome.

    You guys need to figure out your audio issues, I couldn't hear Cr1tikals audio after about the first five minutes... Seriously though, maybe put your guest toward the middle to help include them in the conversation.

    I disagree, sales do matter to consumers. One of my favorite games of the last generation was Valkyria Chronicles. That game sold poorly but was well reviewed, so Sega decided to try again (one reason why reviews are important) but, because it sold so much better in Japan, Sega put it on the Vita (which is popular in Japan). It sold so poorly in the US that Sega didn’t even bother releasing the third game in the US. Sega tried again and rereleased the game on Steam. It sold so well that Sega decided to Remaster the game (it came out today) and they are working on a sequel. In addition, if not for the commercial success of a game called Demon’s Souls, I might not be playing Dark Souls 3 right now. Keep in mind, prior to Demon’s Souls no one had heard of From Software.


    Now, I am not going to cry for Naughty Dog. A few reviews will not significantly affect their bottom line. However, consumers can and should care about sales when it affects the content they want. Vote with your dollars and all of that.

    Review scores are useless, you have to read/listen to the critics/praises of the game. Someone could say that the game play is the greatest thing ever but the story is boring(destiny), if you don't care about story that game is perfect for you. A review of Doom said that the singleplayer was great but the multiplayer was boring, if you don't like multiplayer then that game is for you.


    Reviews are useful but scores are not.

    The audio editing on this episode is really jarring. Even though the lav mics are pretty noisy, completely cutting out between words just feels so disjointed.
