Molehill Mountain Episode 106 – Parents Gonna Parent

Video games are having a negative affect on my children!

What? No, I don’t pay attention to what they’re playing, why do you ask?

32:13 – Wacky survey shows parents don’t pay attention to kids’ gaming, notice bad behavior, don’t think it has anything to do with games, took games away anyway, gave them back because kids threw a fit, and fear their kids may be gaming addicts!

57:09 – Nintendo wants 20 – 30 new indie games on Switch every week!

1:03:11 – We laugh at the poorly written character descriptions from the purported new Mortal Kombat movie

7:04 PMmatthew wilsonyes I am part of the reason movie theaters are dying in the US, and proud of it.

7:06 PMaddictedtochaosShould give Arrow a chance but stop after season 2.

7:07 PMaddictedtochaosFirst 2 were incredible and it was all downhill from there.

7:09 PMaddictedtochaosParappa is very unforgiving in its difficulty.

7:12 PMmatthew wilsonjust rebind them, the ps4 supports rebinding at the os lvl

7:12 PMaddictedtochaosThere was a RockBand arcade game that was that way as well.

7:13 PMaddictedtochaosOn PSN and XBLA

7:13 PMmatthew wilsonlol

7:14 PMmatthew wilsonyou do hate vocaloids dont you

7:14 PMmatthew wilsonI get it, doesnt appeal to everyone

7:23 PMO-Contexsial“Eisen”. It actually sounds kinda German. ol

7:25 PMO-ContexsialI actually got Meme’d here from one of your very old videos. What’s this about? I wanna be involved in some way shape or form!

7:26 PMAndrew EisenThis is just a podcast where we talk about super important things like, uh… you know, video games and stuff.

7:26 PMScottyJayManNeed to get back into Zelda

7:27 PMAndrew EisenMe or you?

7:27 PMScottyJayManBoth of us

7:27 PMmatthew wilsonI tend to be prity anti moble

7:27 PMAndrew EisenI have a plan! (I’ll talk about it later.)

7:27 PMmatthew wilsongames

7:27 PMScottyJayManI need to get the motorbike

7:27 PMO-ContexsialOh, I see! You guys talking about Pokemon right now? Last generation I played was like the Heartgold Soulsilver ones. Can I insert myself in some way?

7:28 PMAndrew EisenYou’re participating in the chat. That’s a good way to participate in the conversations!

7:28 PMmatthew wilsonzelda botw is open world imersive sim, I totaly understand why he doesnt like it

7:28 PMAndrew EisenI don’t like it because I was super offended by Link’s prominent vagina bones!

7:29 PMmatthew wilsonlol

7:29 PMO-ContexsialOne thing I already like about this Stream is that it’s only like 5 seconds delayed. In most People’s Streams I watch it’s like 10 seconds, which get’s confusing sometimes. Whoop!

7:29 PMBornDistractedomg ! what a hair cut !…

7:29 PMBornDistractednice!…

7:31 PMmatthew wilsonwas this on linux or windows?

7:32 PMmatthew wilsonwtf why was that setting on?

7:32 PMO-Contexsialhave you tried petting it

7:33 PMmatthew wilsonis it windows or linux?

7:33 PMScottyJayManHave you tried upgrading your graphics card ?

7:34 PMmatthew wilsonjust use windows, built in drivers

7:35 PMmatthew wilsondoesnt shock me, I played a bunch of m rated games as a kid

7:35 PMmatthew wilsonall you need is 1100 to do a good servay, assuming methods are done right

7:36 PMmatthew wilsonfor a +-3 is only 1100 people

7:36 PMmatthew wilson+ -3

7:38 PMaddictedtochaosNot shocking, I used to work at GameStop and I’d tell a parent about the content of an M rated game and 95% would still buy the game for their 8 yr old.

7:38 PMmatthew wilsonI mean come on game age ratings are so out of wack. there are a bunch of m games that realy should be if they were movies, alot of m games would be pg13

7:40 PMmatthew wilsonI mean come on deablo 2 was rated m back in the day

7:40 PMaddictedtochaosIt is very tame by MK standards

7:41 PMmatthew wilsonalso no academic data back that up

7:42 PMScottyJayManThat was one of the bissest issues with Australias game rating system before the R rating. Stuff like GTA had to make tiny changes to bump the rating down to appease the OFLC

7:43 PMScottyJayManThe OFLC even admitter the rating system is not up to date as with the We happy few Rating reversal

7:43 PMmatthew wilsonhate to tell you ezk thats true in the US. even the south park creators made the cast kids just to point that out

7:46 PMScottyJayManZach that’s profiling. You don’t know they might have has a really good golf session

7:48 PMScottyJayManA very dark ninja

7:48 PMTheRiverAnduinthis is why parental controls exist for game consoles

7:49 PMScottyJayManEven Bowser knows he needs to control Bower Jr playtime

7:49 PMmatthew wilsonmaybe its not the M rated games, but the parents

7:49 PMTheRiverAnduinthe age of appeasement

7:50 PMmatthew wilsonalso as a number of people who research the subject, said and I qoute “I would be more concerned about the teenager not playing gta, than the ones that are”

7:51 PMaddictedtochaosWhen they start acting like that you ground them and take something else away.

7:57 PMmatthew wilsonboth the ps4 and xb1 have settings that deable voice chat with people that arent on freinds list

7:59 PMmatthew wilsonfrog fractions? that game goes some places

7:59 PMmatthew wilsonlol

8:00 PMaddictedtochaosAnd the flood of shovelware begins

8:01 PMmatthew wilsonover crection much?!

8:06 PMaddictedtochaosLiu kangaroo

8:06 PMaddictedtochaosBlasted autocorrect

8:07 PMaddictedtochaosThis sounds terrible already

8:07 PMaddictedtochaosJax was a soldier

8:08 PMScottyJayManThats TJ Combo from Killer instinct

8:09 PMaddictedtochaosThe latter.

8:09 PMScottyJayManTj Combo got metal implants for cheating in boxing, Jax got his arms ripped off by Ermac
