Laura gets stressed. Joe Parlock gets stressed. Everyone has a blast.
The UK, it exists and Destructoid now has writers there. Great British Pounds. Eastenders. Steptoe and Son. The Destructoid UK Podcast (DestrUKtoid).
This week UK Editor Laura Dale is joined by Joe Parlock to talk about terrible kids jokes, good Ubisoft PC ports and the small penis defense.
I did a review of Dynasty Warriors 8 Empires for Destructoid this week, which you can read here.
Simply put, I’m a big fan of this game.
So, Podquisition 54 was a fairly easy episode to put together on a technical level. Minimal news to discuss, some struggles finding good questions to fit the week, but otherwise nice and simple to put together.
From my perspective, there was a delay on me actually getting the edit of the episode started, mainly due to boring email attachment permissions. The night we recorded Gavin sent me his recording while I was still awake, but Jim’s file arrived after I fell asleep. The problem was his file wasn’t set with the correct attachment permissions, so I could not download it when I woke up.
Usually I edit as soon as I wake up in the morning, during Destructoid news editing duties. The problem was Jim was asleep before I woke up. I had to wait for Jim to wake up before I could get his file, then start the editing.
Because of this, rather than the edit being with Jim when he woke, it got to him two or three hours into his Thanksgiving. The problem with this being by the time it was sent to Jim, he was off enjoying that North American national holiday. Because of this, Jim didn’t get it up until around twelve hours later, at which point I was already asleep.
Basically, tech issues overlapping with conflicting sleep and work schedules delayed upload this week.
Oh, and we have a guest lined up for next week. We forgot to tease that on the show this week.
Next week? SuperBunnyHop 😀 !!!
Happy Thanksgiving if you’re into turkey n’ stuff! We keep the holiday stuff light, instead focusing on all the murders that happen in soap operas, as well as the secret island of Kate Bush.
We’re really sorry about the Kate Bush thing.
Elsewhere, we talk about more Fallout 4, Bloodborne: The Old Hunters, and give you a tasty preview of Xenoblade Chronicles X!
Oh no, we’re in trouble!!!
This week Laura, Kate and Gemma chat about Jessica Jones, Master of None, movies, art museums and other geeky topics.
