WE'RE BACK

We decided to just take December off because we were too busy to do any of this. Decided to reward you with an extra long episode. In here we are going to talk about our holidays, our choices for Game of the Year 2019, Game of the Decade, and other nonsense. We also spent a good chunk of time explaining what Mastodon is, and why it sucks since Twitter wants to get into the open social media standards space. See show notes for links related to that rant as there's lots of details in the rant that assume you read some of these to help it make sense.

SHOW NOTES

Pebblebee, that wallet finder thing someone got Dielan for Christmas

Regarding Dielan's Mastodon rant:

Jack Dorsey talking about making an open social media standard, and the braindead replies praising him like it hasn't been done already

Robek's Article on the arrival of mastodon. The only sane article about mastodon written in 2017

Example of some of the undeserved praise Mastodon got in 2017 that caused their inflated their user counts early on, which are now mostly derelict accounts today

A hitpiece on the creator of Mastodon, from a Mastodon user, detailing how he steals credit from others

Leaks & unsubstantiated hearsay that suggest the Masto founder was a key founding element of the Eunomia Project – An EU backed social credit system similar to China's

Happy Holidays!

(The official greeting of the Pastafarian winter tradition)

We were going to record last night, and the week before, but December is just a wash at this point. We are going to intentionally take a break and return in January! We'll be sure to recount how our holidays went.

Between now and then we will no doubt be found on our Discord server playing some Warframe, Planetside 2, and Age of Empires 2 DE. Feel free to hop in at this join link. Otherwise just

Take it Easy!™

Been a while huh? In this episode it's just Dielan and Vic where we explain how Dielan got in a car wreck which delayed out episode for a while. We have a new recording schedule that should space out our episodes to something more managable and we explain that too. We also take some time to talk about The Game Awards, Death Stranding, Mortal Kombat microtransaction hell, how Vic lost $20 American on an Archage Unchained controversey, and much more.

In this episode it's just Dielan and Victim where for 43 minutes we only talk about positive news. We talk about the upcoming release of CUBE WORLD, the recent Nintendo Direct, and spend some time talking about shitty movies and how living in Canada is somehow even shittier.

We tried something new this time where Dielan streamed the whole thing while recording. A lot of stuff gets cut out while editing so if you wanna see the stream VOD click here

Sarge makes his dramatic return to the Melonmancy Podcast and we spend some time going over the Funileaks, why our Guild Wars 2 guild fell apart, why the heck Dielan has a small army of fediverse image bots runing on his home server. Then later we talk about wrestling.

The wreslting arc of the recording was so long it was broken out into a bonus episode. So keep a lookout for two new episodes wherever you prefer to listen and not just one!

If you were wondering where these bots are that Dielan was talking about in the episode, they can be found here:

In this episode we bring on special guest Rick from Melonmancy. Rick was the person who last episode's breakup story was about and he volunteered to come on and give us the final update. Then we spend the rest of our runtime complaining about Marvel!

No show notes this time as this post is retroactive. In fact at the end of this episode we explain what happened to our old website and why things look so different around here now, though those things were not set in stone when we recorded this.
