On podcast 185I never had a problem with the sponsorship thing, or the audio, namely because I haven't gotten to listen to the podcast yet because of fucking iTunes. Seriously, I looked on the comments and no one said anything about iTunes changing the format of podcasts to a retarded version out of nowhere. Am I the only one who downloads the podcast from iTunes on iTouch? But I digress. The only issues I had with the podcast itself is that it is streaming, and a video. I don't know what everyone else does when they listen to the podcast, but I am either doing stuff around the house, or going for a walk around the neighborhood, something mundane so I can really pay attention to the conversations, and so im not just wasting time staring at my wall for an hour an a half. You can see my problem, the video part messes me up because I'm doing stuff that looking at my iPod would obviously impede, plus I wouldn't want to sit in one spot and look at a screen for an hour and a half(unless I'm playing games), and as for the streaming part, I'd have to stay in one place as well cause its an iTouch so I couldn't leave my wifi. Even if they improve the quality and cut the parts that don't really require video to enjoy for an audio only portion, I feel as if that would only leave around thirty minutes of pure original podcast goodness. To be honest I don't know why this is the next step forward, visuals aren't THAT important, or why people would want to sit in front of their computers for damn near two hours. I'm sure there are others who would prefer the good old, tried and true pure audio podcast, and hopefully Gus or someone else on the podcast crew reads this and agrees.
Renewed HopeAfter seeing the article about halo 4 from gameinformer, my formerly pessimistic views have been thrown to the wayside as anticipation for what I now have hopes to be a great game coming out later this year fills me. Good news: I now believe halo 4 has a shot at being a great game. Bad news: now I can't fucking wait for it to come out...damn it.
I am deeply disturbed...So my iTouch has been randomly exiting out of safari lately, and it was really fucking annoying so I decided to search online to find some answers. So I went to the google search on my iPods safari, fully expecting to have a nice education filled online search. I should have known that within a few seconds my innocence and hopes for humanity would be destroyed in one fell swoop. Unsuspecting of the impending doom as I was, I slowly typed in my intended search, "why does my iTouch keep exiting out of safari?", but before I even got to the s in does, google's top search popped up and it was, and I quote, "why does my anus itch?". ...God save us all.
Lower your expectations...Started playing reach a lot more recently, and stumbled across the apparently very common problem with the two newest map packs and their corresponding achievements, made by 343 instead of bungie. Not gonna go into too much detail, but multiplayer achievements are annoying enough to get, without throwing in the stipulation of a specific game type and map, both of which are very rare to even get as an option. If this is any indication of how they operate, my hope for the 343 made continuation of halo has dimmed considerably. I've also had my burning hatred for people reignited by the cheap tactics and other various acts of douchebagery imployed by others all just for the sake of the smallest combat advantage. Almost broke my new controller...assholes. Another game's multiplayer gone straight down the drain.
