Melonmancy Podcast

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

Hey friends, we didn't record an episode this week so Dielan could bust out some new highlights. These are the first highlights we've made since switching to a video format, so there was a slight investment in learning how to do this before we could get these out. Will be much, much easier in the future.

Check out the highlights channel here

These are the highlights we uploaded today:

Dielan's anime awakening and the stolen valor of millennial e-girls

Dielan rants about privacy and the importance of pseudoanonymity

WTF is Substack and why do journalists have Stockholm Syndrome?

Special guest Alveraz from 2RAF recounts the Planetside 2 Outfit Wars experience first hand

Mainstream social media is afraid of crypto

Thank you everyone who showed up to the livestream!

Dielan is recovering from an appendix removal, so instead of cancelling today's episode the guys got together on Discord and did live Q&A, and otherwise chill stream with Dielan playing clone hero.

Is Microsoft really buying Discord? You bet today we're going to talk about it. Some other topics covered include:

  • 2RAF won the championship for Planetside 2!
  • New Monster Hunter is a thing
  • Canada's political system doesn't make any sense
  • What's up with older millennials lying about being OG fans of old anime and video games?
  • Don't use your real name on the internet
  • Did Square Enix spend more money on the Outriders ad campaign than they did on the movement animations? WTF is this game.
  • Do journalists have Stockholm Syndrome?
  • Community vs nomadic identity – why community is more important than the software you connect on.

We have a real treat for you all today. We went the typical 1 hour 30 minutes but this time kept the conversation almost entirely centered on video games for once. Special guest from the Melonmancy community Rick joins us again to talk about the current state of Planetside 2, the Outfit Wars format, and the unprecedented 4:0 undefeated streak our Planetside 2 outfit, 2RAF, has achieved thus far. As we mentioned in a previous episode we joined the 2RAF outfit to give ourselves the large outfit experience on Planetside 2 without all the overhead of managing a large outfit – which we don't have time for. Our podcast and our community doesn't reflect the views of 2RAF – we're just a squad of murderhobos trying to find our way through the universe. Hear about all this and more in today's episode!

Back to variety topics next time. We just had lots of Planetside 2 happenings to get off of our minds.

We're back after skipping an episode! In this episode we talk about a variety of subjects, but most prominently about Planetside 2 and it's Outfit Wars tournament, the ABSOLUTE STATE of MMORPGs, drinking with Dielan and MORE!

####### note: Dielan is too drunk to type more detailed show notes right now. You're lucky the words are spelled right.

Rather than cancelling this week's recording, Dielan went live for Q&A and played some clone hero for the live attendees. This is a vod of that stream. Check out the video on odysee.com >HERE<

New year, new crisis to complain about. In this episode we continue to shill completely unpaid and unsponsored to odysee.com while Dielan tries to explain why a single-digit number of big tech CEOs being the arbiters of truth and culture is a bad idea, all while trying not to ruin the mood.

Very rough agenda: – Vic started his first Persona 5 playthrough on stream – Youtube is banning crypto-related content without warning – Loose and disorganized rambling about decentralization, web 3.0, and how Twitter's Blue Sky project is actually their only hope for a future – Obligatory Genshin Impact section in the later half of the show – More rambling about the importance of Section 230 – WTF happened to Warframe?

With @SargeDaBarge@shitposter.club missing again the show returns with Victim and Dielan. The holidays are finally over and we can move on, but not before talking about how it went.

Rough episode agenda:

  • How did the Holidays play out anyway?
  • What did Dielan spend all those gift cards on?
  • Who the fuck are the people featured on Canadian dollars?
  • WTF is a Razer Kishi?
  • Is xcloud any good?
  • WTF happened between Celldweller and Blue Stahli anyway?
  • Cyberpunk 2077 seems to run fine on every computer we personally know about

Today not only did we stream this episode live we showed our faces over Jitsi Meet instead of just our voices on Mumble. All in all it went pretty well. @SargeDaBarge@shitposter.club was M.I.A. but at least now you know what Dielan and Victim look like if you weren't following their social media already.

Rough episode agenda:

  • A brief mention of Cyberpunk 2077
  • The Game Awards happened and it was really suspicious (why did they not nominate any good games to begin with?)
  • Big Dong Zhongli is out for Genshin Impact and the reddit shithole is really salty about it
  • Twich has banned the blind playthrough category, which was basically the only thing Vic streams
  • Youtube is continuing to censor more content, people need to stop using it asap
  • Dielan has gotten all the peripherals needed to play Clone Hero

Sarge is back but his internet is absolutely shot. Probably the worst time to try out a live show but we made it work by the end. Please forgive some of the growing pains as we try new stuff. It's the same show as ever but this time raw and uncut! Keep an eye on our social media for when we start these livestreams so we can take questions live.

Rough episode agenda:

  • Dielan didn't drink any alcohol at all
  • Sarge is back! What happened with that?
  • Victim beat FF7 for the first time ever on stream – final thoughts on the experience
  • The cast talks over the finer details on why Dielan might want to buy one of the new next gen consoles (or why he shouldn't).
