Molehill Mountain Episode 7 – Quietly Into the Night

As it happens, Andrew is going to be busy for the next several Saturdays in a row so this is his last episode of the podcast until August.  In the latest episode, you get him all to yourselves for an hour and a half.  Ain’t that peachy!

  • 1:10 – I have a problem. A Ghostbusters problem.
  • 10:50 – Let’s talk about the localization of Tokyo Mirage Sessions! Again.
  • 17:35 – Let’s speculate about the NX, Nintendo’s new console that we still know almost nothing about!
  • 22:07 – GameStop made me mad. Here’s why.
  • 26:24 – More NX talk! Game controller talk! Zelda talk! Paper Mario talk!
  • 46:18 – Wind Waker is five times better than Skyward Sword. Do I agree?
  • 58:15 – I share my thoughts on VR.
  • 1:13:13 – Let’s talk about accuracy (and ethics!) in entertainment journalism.
  • 1:22:00 – Let’s talk about video games and keeping the original language track!

GameStop makes me SO MAD I want to hurl obscenities!!!

gamestopMy sister bought me a PS3 the Christmas before last and I’ve been happily catching up on many of the cool games I’ve missed (Sega’s Yakuza games are great; give them a try!).  Unfortunately, after only a mere 18 months, my PS3 controller has decided that the left stick should randomly send a “left” signal to the console.  This means that I often can’t run in a straight line or aim with any accuracy and navigating menus is a pain because the cursor keeps zooming to the left.

There doesn’t appear to be anything physically broken.  The stick isn’t loose, for example.  And it’s not a matter of the stick not being calibrated properly because the “left” signal can emit regardless of the stick’s position.  I tried resetting the controller and that didn’t help.  Over the past few weeks, it’s gotten worse.  The errant “left” signal is stronger and more frequent.

Well, the PS3’s warranty is only for one year so I guess I’m going to have to buy a new controller.

Yeah, about that…


The Podcast With No Name

We’re still working on a name but the first post-Super Podcast Action Committee podcast is in the bag and you can watch it over to the left.  This week, EZK and I discussed the sad truth behind my love for LEGO games (7:42), the possibility of Nintendo NX news hitting early this week (30:04), whether GameStop’s publishing plans could hurt its gaming magazine’s credibility (34:45), the proposed “No Sale Promise” for digital games (50:24), and whether movie theater audiences improve the theater-going experience (1:06:01).


Could GameStop’s publishing plans hurt Game Informer’s credibility?

gamestopSo GameStop is starting its own publishing label, apparently. The company known for being the biggest video games retailer in the world has decided that it wants to publish “indie games” under a new label called “GameTrust.” This news about GameStop dipping its big toe into the publishing pond is fine, dandy, and wonderful for them, and I wish them well in their future endeavors, but I wonder how the magazine it owns – Game Informer – will cover them.
