GameSpot GamePlay Episode 16: Press X to Batman

This week's episode is free and easy, as host Kevin VanOrd puts the GameSpot team through their intellectual paces, courtesy of a slew of new reader-suggested quizzes! On the road to discovery, Tom Mc Shea uncovers just what the Mercer brothers (Alex and Alec, of course!) are up to; Peter Brown fondly recalls the Devil May Cry shooter that never existed; Tyler Winegarner uses lustful language in his best Jerry Seinfeld voice; and Chris Watters inspires Kevin to drop a well-timed F-bomb.

Is there going to be a new episode this week? The cancellation of the hotspot has made me nervous whenever you guys miss a week.

If anyone is wondering about why Brendan Sinclair would have been laughing about when Peter was "crying", Brendan holds that masturbation can be substituted for all the idioms that involve crying and the phrase will still make sense. So when "tears were rolling down peter's cheeks"... yep...

Tom should have win the arcade racing round. Daytona USA came up twice and the second time was right at the end and killed Tom.

For guys who disliked and don't want to talk about RE6, they sure do plug it a lot.

Ha!  Kevin should have added Arma 2's combat noises for the last one. 

 

"Unknown Man.  400m. 10 o'clock ... Unknown Man. 400m. 9 o'clock ... Unknown Man.400m. 9 o'clock.  Enemy Helicopter. Far.

 

So bad!  XD

Great show guys! I always test my friends with names of factions or groups within game stories. You can also do a group vote for most mediocre or worst game in a genre and judge results. Always brings up some horror stories hehe.

I would absolutely listen to Quoted for Truth on a regular basis, if you provided an episode on a regular basis... It's really hard to be excited for a show if a new episode only shows once every 3 weeks

Since you guys asked to us to wright this about crack, here we go with the only history that I know that is related to gaming and crack.

Some years ago I was trying to download a pirate copy of a game. I know that is not a cool thing to do, you don't need to warn how bad this is. Nowadays all copies of my PC and PS3 games are legal. Anyway I was looking for the altered version of the .exe file of the game that could allow me to run the pirated copy, this kind of file .exe is called crack. 

After a long time searching for a game crack in the internet I stumble with an Orkut community called I Smoke Crack, at that time Okut was at its peak. There was a bunch of people talking about the healthy hobby of smoking crack. I remember that one of the topics of discussions was if is better smoke crack in a pipe or in a can, but honestly I don't remember to each conclusion those fine ladies and gentlemen came to. 

Anyway what I learned from this is that you smoke crack, and you can do that from a pipe or a can. Boy, you can find strange things on the internet.

I noticed MW2 because of the music, the voices just lent a hand in which shooter it could be.

another game could be having them think of a game they wish they could re-review. They would obviously give reasons as to why they would re-review it and what score they would give it now.

how about a 2 truths and a lie type game?  this could work with news or games.  You simply state two facts and a lie about gaming news or a specific game and the others try to guess which statement out of the three is the lie.

 @Yukeshime  @Kevin-V 

I'm wondering about this, too.  I was really starting to enjoy these podcasts, they were becoming a part of my weekly routine.  It's been two weeks and I'm looking for my fix!  Will another episode be forthcoming?

 @LeoKRock Don't worry--this was a special episode.

 @Biggs613 Is a 10-second joke the equivalent of plugging?

Hi Kevin, I thank you for having the skill, talent and time to host these podcasts for us the fans.  Yet, if i may provide a few points of constructive criticism.  I find the trivia and format of these shows not as interesting as the hotspot.  I understand that you are making it your own show but can you make an "inbetweener", sort of a merger, and combine the topical discussion of "quoted for truth" with this.  Because this is what i find most interesting, the deep topical discussions of the biggest issues surrounding the games industry.  Thanks again for your time.

 @Kevin-V No, but when we hear about the game in every podcast since release, then it's plugging, lol.

 @doc-brown  I didn't mean to bash you, I thought it was funny though. lol
