Talking Point: What piece of the future are you most looking forward to?

It is that time of the week again, when in to get warmed up ready for the podcast we ramble about a chosen topic. Before we got onto this weeks topic we did however have to handle the comments of the Listeners/Viewers of last weeks show -What is your take on the Destructiod ‘HUGE’ Program?

Here are a selection of the comments

  • FaceBook: https://www.facebook.com/DrunkenGamer131/posts/10153229096240788
  • Alec Ross-Bower:  Fair enough. As long as it doesn’t affect the current access
  • Dan Allen: Natural progression for converting readers to dollar
  • Michelle Chatterton:  for someone who uses the site daily and is part of the site’s community. $3 a month is nothing really
  • Trevor Bristle: As long as there is no paywall.

As always we then went on to have a good old fashion natter about this weeks topic which was What piece of the future are you most looking forward to?

Despite banging on for quite some time about the potential Hyperloop ET3 (http://www.et3.com/) transportation system, Gow eventually went for Hoverboards because who doesnt want things to Hover. Likewise despite banging on about space travel for quite a while I ended up picking Robots for my tech.

So, What about it guys & gals?

Let us know in the comments below which is your favourite and suggest a possible question for the next Talking Point, please do as I seem bad at picking them myself.  Everything is fair game, from politics to movies, music to games, hell we will even discuss our favourite womble if you so desire it.

Basically its a Sub service to remove adverts and perks from the Destructoid site. Both Me and Gow are interested in the idea, however Gow is not sure of its Long-Term Viability. Personally I like the idea for the fact it will mean the site no longer has to write articles based on how many page views it will get.

Talking Point: Which Gaming Buzzword or term do you hate most?

This weeks was a bit of a mental one for responses, too much to actually put in the post this time. Instead here is an overview of who thought what and a link to the comments themselves

The number of terms that we came up with it is hard to pick what was our two most hated terms but I believe for Gow it would be the Term MMO. Personally i think that I am going to have to go with ‘The Cloud’

Talking Point: Does Last of Us live up to the hype?

It is that time of the week again, when in to get warmed up ready for the podcast we ramble about a chosen topic. Before we got onto this weeks topic we did however have to handle the comments of the Listeners/Viewers of last weeks show – Which Games Franchise has been done to death?

Here are some of the things our viewers suggested

  • Trevor – Crash Bandicoot

  • Mike Lockwood – Tekken & Splinter Cell
  • Alec-Ross Bower  – Splinter Cell, Resident Evil, Call of Duty & Fifa
  • FirehawkShadowchild – EA Sports Collection & Simulator Franchise
  • TimmyHassall – Call of Duty
  • Michell Chatterton – House of the Dead

As always we then went on to have a good old fashion natter about this weeks topic which was Does Last of Us live up to the hype?

For us we think that on the whole it does, there are some areas where it is a little weak in the gameplay but the story carries it in our eyes.

This really was the most terrifying sound in my childhood!

Talking Point: Which Games Franchise has been done to death?

It is that time of the week again, when in to get warmed up ready for the podcast we ramble about a chosen topic. Before we got onto this weeks topic we did however have to handle the comments of the Listeners/Viewers of last weeks show – Which GameWorld would you like to live in and as which Character?

Here are some of the things our viewers suggested

  • FirehawkShadowChild –  Forgotten Realm setting (ie Baldurs Gate, Icewind Dale) – Ranger or Mage or  Shadowrun (Decker or Street Samurai)
  • Michelle Chatterton – Sonic Universe as Tails
  •  Adam OMC – Pokemon Universe as Trainer Red
  • Stuart Renton – Mario Universe as Princess Peach
  • Dan Allen & Mosh Miller – Couldn’t pick one as all the games they play are too violent
  • Mike Lockwood – Agent 47 in Skyrim or Himself in Last of Us

As always we then went on to have a good old fashion natter about this weeks topic which was Which Game Franchise has been done to death and which would you like to see return?

This was one of those topics were I don’t think we managed to pick one each this week despite Gow trying to convince us that Sonic belonged on the list. What we did agree is that Guitar Hero had to be one of them as it pretty much killed off an entire genre & the Oblivion Engine because seriously how many games do they want to build on that core?
