Thanks mate. Yea sounds like I’ll be going this year and will be actively seeking drinking / chowder buddies.
If checking twitter on some sponsored phone on camera means we can set up a free event for people to play new console, then I’ve no problem with it. It’s not like I’m saying “YO BUY THIS SICK PHONE!”. We just use the tablet, or the phone or whatever. I don’t throw my personal support behind any of the brands that advertise with us. And we only do that on-camera malarky with non-gaming brands.
I know what you mean, but I guess all I can do is try and be trustworthy in everything I do so that folks don’t think I’m sort of shady snake oil salesman. It’s a reality of the work so at the very least I hope people understand it.
Turn it up
Sorry for your loss. My cat just died of being a massive whore.
I think if you’re picking and choosing which games you’re applying these rules to, then I think you’re missing the point. Mario games have a set of tropes for sure, and they have been guilty of releasing quite a of similar games. But I think maybe you’re not giving them enough credit for the amount of effort they go to to create new and interesting mechanics. I really don’t think it’s at Call of Duty levels.
No I had a cat once. She was called Whiskers and we fed her potatoes.
She died of cat aids. True story.
Well the Mario releases are generally a lot more interesting. At least they generally try to mix up the formula and bring something new to table mechanically.
I’ll be honest though, I’m not sure if you’re trying to stick up for COD or Mario here.
That’s hilarious. My mate Denis who hosted it with my was recognised in a bar in Cork last month because of his voice too. And likely because he going on about Viking: Battle for Asgard. What a oddly connected world we live in.
