Melonmancy Podcast

Wizards and watermelons! We play tabletop, video games, and talk about those things + more on our podcast. No filter.

WE BACK (from vacation)

Everybody and their mother had a video game showcase since we last recorded and it warrants a chinwag (he he). Somehow Nintendo came out on top? News and hot takes found within.

During the show we compare Joanna Dark's new Buzz Lightyear chin to the video thumbnail of the same trailer, and the xbox 360 game from years past. We reference some specific pictures which you can see here: Link

We also mentioned in the episode a cool conversion mod you can get on Steam for Skyrim. Link here

Hydroking in the house! We asked Hydro to finally join us since our previous attempt to record episode 89 didn't save right. Expect coverage of Sony State of Cringe, The oral history of the Destiny franchise with Hydro, and more!

I think it's long past time for a complete Ubisoft boycott for all games past, present, and future.

The horrors won't end! Sony and Microsoft compete for worst decisions in gaming, meanwhile Ubisoft might have them both beat. All of this and more in our episode!

We totally wrapped recording this one JUST before the big Helldivers 2 account linking news dropped. Oh well.

In today's episode Stellar Blade first impressions! Is the story really as predictable as the bloggers say? Dielan gives his predictions based on being 10 hours in. Find out in the episode after this if he was right.

Remember kids, merit based employment also means merit based performance evaluation!

News concerning DEI in videogames has been winding down lately but content creators who agreed with us seem to be dragging it out on purpose. Is it grift? We'll discuss that and more on today's Episode!

An article and several tweets were mentioned in this episode, links to them are below:

Additionally, this episode has FF7 Rebirth spoilers. The chapter in question is clearly labeled. If your podcast player doesn't support chapters get fucked I guess ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

The $70 you were going to spend on FF7 Rebirth would be better spent on boosting our podcast! Trust me ;)

@dielan@shitposter.club finally beat FF7 Rebirth and has a lot to say, most of which is not good. After that, we have so many updates on gaming news, from Kotaku's death knells to the latest drama surrounding microtransactions. Grab a beer this one is long.

During the episode we mention a tweet and an article we think you should read, here are the links to those:

Side note: Until we hear anything from the Odysee.com leadership we are just going to hold off from uploading there. We have no idea what the future of Odysee is gonna be at this point, it's probably gonna die. So make sure you get the RSS feed and listen with a podcast app!

At this rate I'm going to need more moonshine.

FF7 Rebirth First Impressions! Helldivers 2 elitists on suicide watch after a single nerf patch! Rooster Teeth is finally Dead! WTF is an SBI?

To everybody's surprise, Helldivers 2 has the world in an absolute chokehold. So we're going to talk about it. This episode is the first episode of the Melonmancy Podcast that uses CHAPTERS! Let us know what you think of the chapters, are they too long? too short? Send feedback to the forum. If your podcast player doesn't show chapters it might be time to get a new one.

EDIT: In the show we reference two tweets, there are the links:

I didn't ask for this

This episode is RAW and UNEDITED because @dielan@shitposter.club forgot to set mumble to multitrack before hitting record. Enjoy our usual variety of gaming topics, including our review of Tekken 8, with all the heavy mouth breathing and awkward pauses you normally wouldn't get to hear!
