    Cloud gaming is the future.  Physical media and entertainment is dying out.  My only worry is net neutrality affecting gameplay depending on how much you can dish out to play the game without increadly long dowloading times.

    I just gotta say - I always hate it when people say "he could just be dating a woman." I totally get that no offense is meant by it, but I think it's a really presumptive phrase. Maybe he is. Or maybe he just doesn't *want* to be. Everyone finds happiness in different ways, and I think the concept of a normative happiness is really damaging. Personally, I've never been as unhappy in my life as when I've been in relationships with other people. It's just not for me. I spend a lot of my time on other things like art, music, even just playing games, and that makes me a lot happier and in a better place than if I was trying to seek "normal" companionship, which in turn makes me a better functioning member of society for my day job and normal human interactions. I just feel like it's overly dismissive to assume that everyone's goal is to be dating/married/fucking another human.


    Not that I'm taking any offense or anything. Just a thought I wanted to put out there.

    EA didn't just shut down Visceral's single player Star Wars game because it couldn't make "enough" money, but because it couldn't make the "most" money. That's an important distinction. EA couldn't turn it into the "games as service" style game that they could with Battlefront so they shut it down in favor of something more safe and profitable rather than take a risk. That's pretty much the future I see with Star Wars games under EA.

    I already have a PSN Plus, the exclusives on the PS4 are some of the must haves if your into gaming. I never really cared for the console war, but as a causal gamer, at least from my point of view this generation has a clear winner. But thats the key word GENERATION the 360 beat the PS3, the PS4 has beat the Xbox One, maybe the next Generation will decide the way things will be from now on, or the Xbox will make a comeback and continue the cycle.

    At 1:14:16 Lawrence shows some video of competitive "railgun" shooting. These are highly accurate bolt action rifles firing conventional ammunition on a special counter-recoiling mount similar to a large artillery piece. The participants assemble ammunition (carefully measuring powder to put in the brass case and pressing the projectile into the case) on the fly to get the smallest group possible accounting for temperature, barometric pressure, etc. Groups are extremely small and it is not uncommon to see .1-.14" three shot groups at 200 yards. I would love to see an RT Doc where Adam and another RT crew member overcome their fear of firearms to become 2-gun (or 3-gun) action challenge match champions!

    Hopefully he sees this episode of Dude Soup before it comes in, so that he can get the joke.

    Or he doesn't, and thinks I'm a maniac. Both are funny enough.

    What is the difference in your minds between promoting a Patreon and Rooster Teeth First?  Not trying to be an asshole, but if you can discredit someone's opinion entirely based on the solicitation of funds, why does this not apply to RT?  Especially considering that every political opinion I've heard from anyone at RT has been from a pretty narrow band of the spectrum of political viewpoints.  I don't believe there's any mandate of political opinion at RT, spoken or unspoken.  Like-minded people tend to group together, it's just part of life.  However, I wouldn't be surprised if there was some percentage of viewers who stick around partially because they agree with what's being said, whether they are aware of that motivation or not.


    Ultimately, what I'm trying to articulate is this: How do you deal with the conformation bias inherent in the selection of media to consume, especially media which is directly or indirectly arguing in favor of a particular viewpoint or policy?  How do you determine when something is just bullshit to be tuned out, versus something that simply comes from a wildly different perspective from your own?

      The difference is the goal. Rooster Teeth is an entertainment company. They create content that appeals to some people, and with a minimum of production value. It costs a lot of money to make it what it is. For example, Funhaus creates comedy content with a touch of video games. That requires a few computers and consoles for the games, recording equipment for multiple people, and the talent (let's not forget about that one) amongst other things. All those things can get rather expensive, so getting compensation for something that they put out for free makes sense in my opinion.


      On the other hand, the videos that they watched briefly seemed to want to shit on something else. (from what I got, I was only half looking) It looked like "Let me tell you why all these people marching for equality are wrong! Oh, and give me money." In a sense, I felt like it was someone giving an opinion and expecting to make a quick buck out of it. Not to entertain.


      Bottom line: I'm fine with paying for the entertainment I consume because I understand the costs behind it. And I don't watch people bashing others for fun.

      It's totally cool if it's not your thing.  You should watch the entertainment you enjoy.  I'm not personally interested in makeup videos, for example, but I wouldn't dismiss a makeup channel just because it had a Patreon.  There are certainly people who would dismiss that channel, or any "genre" of video, as a low-effort cash grab.


      Yes, RT has vastly greater production value, but it also has a much larger staff than one person.  The most costly components of most things are talent and time.  As for the "bashing others" thing, criticism is a fundamental part of a lot of entertainment.  However, I do recognize that there is a real, important difference between criticism and talking shit.  I just don't think a Patreon is an effective method to differentiate between the two, at least not as the lone data point.

    Bruce's shirt is pretty funny. The top bit says "Disuku wo tataki waru (Shatter the disk)." and "Hakujin (White person)". The bottom is "Zettai ni mushuusei (Absolutely uncensored)" for the first/larger line. Can't find a clear shot of the bottom line to read it, though. 


    Edit: Oh shit, Monogatari shows up at the end! The cringe surrounding it is physically painful, but hey, Monogatari. It's a really good series, though probably not for everyone. Long story short, high school guy gets vamped (by adult, full power Shinobu) and then mostly unvamped, then deals with various supernatuaral goings on around town with the help of the now little girl sized and de-powered Shinobu. It also started out as a book series, though the author is a male (Nishio Ishin; also wrote Katanagatari (similar name but otherwise no connection), Juuni Taisen, Zaregoto, and Medaka Box among others). It might not seem it at first, but it's actually got a lot of things to say about self-reliance, self-sacrifice, dealing with mental issues, and a lot of other deeper issues. 


    Tl;dr, don't let the creepy waifu wedding make you think badly of a great book/anime series.

    I want my dudesoups to be as wide as Kylo's chest, thank you for your money sponsors. Also BF2 sold well eventually because its a really good game that they price slashed to $35 after taking all microtransactions out and announced free seasonal DLC. Battlefront 2 already feels like a more fleshed out game than Battlefield 1 to me, and I put roughly 100 hours into BF1. They also recently slashed the price of the season pass for Battlefield 1 to like $15 because of how little content is actually in the base game resulting in the huge amount of drop off in users.

    Things I learned during this podcast:


    New Toronto =/= Toronto

    Magnates = Magnets

    Benson's imperfections = Benson is perfect (duh)

    Lawrence's movie list =/= Anything good

    "Drown me, bro" = Venti ice water

    The future = Now

    Gun engineering = Toilet engineering

    Stitchfix = Lawrence taking quizzes out of his sister's (girlfriend's) magazines

    It's not pedophilia if she's actually 598 years old but looks 8 years old. 


    Bonus: My sister was ACTUALLY married in San Miguel de Allende in Mexico (Where anon married his waifu) and thought it looked familiar. There were fewer anime waifus at her wedding, but man, does that bring back some memories.

    Personally I have never been in an area yet my entire life (currently 29) where it's at all feasible to have all my media in digital form without any discs. Plus I am old school and don't necessarily like the idea of relying on servers and internet to access games I purchase, even though I have become accepting of Steam anymore, though it's become a big mess as of late being overly saturated with games.

    That said, I digress: should the future see all games end up being digital only I would like to know how this will affect game developers and game development in general. How will this affect the quality of game development? How will publishers and developers still make a profit to continue making games? How will games be judged and graded to even be allowed on these services? Will this end up killing the indie scene or will indie games end up being forced to pursue physical distribution?

    So many questions and uncertainties. I just hope by the time physical media is gone (if ever) that the world will have caught up to support it, meaning everyone has decent enough internet globally and game developers still exist tat pursue quality over profit while still making a profit.

    Please call her by her full, actual name, which is Kiss-Shot Acerola-Orion Heart-Under-Blade. And also, just to clarify, she's a 598 years old vampire that lost some of her power. So it's actually ok.
