EZK had technical problems so it’s another Andrew solo show. He talks a bit about IT (which he still hasn’t seen) and the recent Nintendo Direct but he spends most of the time complaining about amiibo. Fun stuff!
Let’s get upset about the internet getting upset about things!
0:00 – We talk about IT even though neither of us have seen it.
12:17 – Google labels us a file sharing site for… hosting our own podcast?
18:19 – All of YouTube’s changes are terrible. All of them.
29:35 – My patience pays off! Both Resident Evil 7 and L.A. Noire get Gold/Deluxe editions that include all the DLC!
37:47 – Rockstar ensures Switch version of L.A. Noire sells like crap by charging $10 more for the visually inferior version
49:32 – Nintendo character profiles for Mario and Luigi mention the boys used to work as plumbers, internet loses its damn fool mind.
59:34 – South Park video game ties difficulty to skin color.
Every year, the Extra-Life charity event tasks gamers with a 24-hour video game marathon to raise money for their local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. This year, participating gamers raised (as of this writing) $8,338,500!
I live in San Diego so I was playing for the Rady Children’s Hospital. With the help of a bunch of super generous people, I raised $825 this year which is by far the most I’ve raised for Rady Children’s in a single year! Continue reading
It’s time for the Extra-Life charity marathon to support the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals!
Starting at noon PST on Saturday, I’ll play video games for 24 hours straight to raise money for the Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego. Because we’ve raised $500, I’ll be playing for an extra hour! That’s 25 hours of gaming goodness!
If we raise $700, I’ll perform a blind surgery in Trauma Team with my sister guiding me!
If we raise $750, I’ll sing a Sixteen Tons for the chat!
Additionally, I have a few donation incentives you might enjoy:
- $10 or more – I’ll plug something of yours every hour during the marathon!
- $25 or more – Your question answered on an upcoming episode of Q & Andrew!
- $50 or more – I will listen to an entire Hatsune Miku song of your choosing!
- $100 or more – I will make a video in which I declare my undying love for you!
If you’d like to make a pledge, you can do so right here. Your donation is tax deductible and every penny goes to helping hospitalized kids. Want more details on donation incentives or Rady Children’s Hospital? Check out my Extra-Life fundraiser page.
Oh! And my sister, Keleigh, will be joining me for the show! The fun starts Saturday at noon PST. We hope to see you there!
That’s dumb but I shared it on Twitter anyway and one of my followers replied, “Don’t scare me like that. Unless…unless they plan to make new NES games. Old-school meets modern AAA.”
And that got me thinking… What if Nintendo made a new console dedicated to retro-style games? Continue reading
Here’s a super silly conspiracy theory for you: What if Red Dead Redemption 2 is an NX game? What if Thursday’s trailer will be shown during the reveal of the NX?
“Penguins of Madagascar” – A whole movie based on one-joke characters in a mediocre franchise? Sounds like a bad idea. Surprisingly works.

Today, I would like to waste some internet real estate to tell you about my latest in a long series of dumb ideas.
Every time a new Marvel show debuts on Netflix, I buy a month subscription so I can watch it. It only took me four or five days to get through Luke Cage so, making the most of the remainder of my subscription, I queued up The Penguins of Madagascar and gave it a watch.
I had an opinion on the flick so I took to Twitter to express it and found it a bit of a challenge to cram my thoughts into 140 characters. But! I do love a challenge so for the past week, I’ve been composing movie reviews that are as entertaining and substantive as possible within the confines of a single, 140-character tweet.
It’s a really dumb idea! Continue reading
I was driving home from the grocery store at 9:06 last night when the phone in my pocket vibrated, informing me that I had received a text. I’m a super duper safe driver who obeys laws dictating what you can and cannot do with your phone while driving in the bone-dry state of California so I left it in my pocket and continued on my way.
I arrived home, put my groceries away and finally checked my phone. This is the text messaged I’d received:
“im not wearin any soocks and i have the panties to match”
Oooh yeeeah… Continue reading
Skylanders is one of those Toys-to-Life games that require you to purchase a bunch of expensive toys in order to unlock content in the game you already paid full price for. I wrote IGN’s wiki guide for two games in the series and calculated that you need to spend a minimum of $254.89 in order to experience everything in Skylanders: Swap Force. Skylanders: SuperChargers has the potential to cost you significantly more, depending on just how much of the game’s content you want to access. A game, I must remind you, that costs $75 to start.
It’s horse poop.
But equine droppings aside, how’s the actual game? Continue reading
