    Oh man, I've been hoping to see some RT guys on @midnight since the show started. I'm so excited about that.

    I'm having Michael's combined PS3 issues right now. an update failed on my PS3, and now it's completely unusable. and I'm terrified that I've lost my FFX data, because my Blitzball teams are all mid 40's and I do not want to go through that again.

    Don't get why they matched touch and taste / smell together. taste and smell react to different chemicals compositions while touch only reacts to feeling. Can you feel chlorine / iron in water by dipping your finger in it? You can definitely taste or smell it.

    You can almost argue that taste / smell are the same with the only difference is the place on the face or when you use it. Lizards and snack smell by flicking their tongues out and grabbing bits of air.

    Smell and taste are CHEMICAL REACTIONS not TOUCH. Other than that and Italians eating pasta, great podcast.

    Had zero interest in Game of Thrones, but decided to check it out after this podcast just to see what all the hype is about. Two days later I'm on season two. Who will give me my life back, RT? WHO?!

    Damn it was cool to see the Rismongler onscreen and learn about his backstory like that! Dude seems like an incredibly easygoing and interesting guy.

    Also, thank CHRIST for another Michael podcast! I wish Gus would have him on more often, Michael's such a fantastic talker, regardless of topic. I swear he, Burnie, and Gav could carry on a marathon podcast for three straight days.

    Michael on the podcast is always a good sign. And I laughed so hard at the talk about the senses that I got a lot of dirty looks. But Gavin has a point: in addition to those “classical†senses there are others like the mentioned balance. Proprioception senses relative position of body parts by measuring the activity of joints and muscles, and chemoreceptors, for example, register the concentration of salts and affect blood pressure and breathing. And I think in school I’ve been taught that the senses of pain and temperature include in the sense of touch.

    Also, it was really interesting to hear what smells mean to someone who can’t smell. I had never thought of that. Thanks for really funny and interesting podcast!

    Pretty sure it's been said a few times, but Evgeni Plushenko landed a quad in the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. I think he did it twice, but I could be wrong.

    So is Gav's Xbox faulty? or maybe he just always has a ton of stuff running...

    He cancelled the mma immersion because he didn't want to see someone who get's in fights for a living to get hit just because she's a girl. I love rooster teeth and Burnie but that's a little lame. Also just an opinion I'm not hating just saying it's a little lame.

    Man Burnies reaction to John's messed up thumbs :P

  • indoctrahol

    2 years ago

    Does anyone know the book that Burnie was referencing? It was pretty obscure how he described it, about how the character traveled back in time and was bothered by the lack of "humming" from technology? For some reason 11-22-63 by Stephen King came to mind. I remember the character referencing the smell but not the lack of noise.

    Anyway, if anyone can help, I would be grateful.

    I don't know if this is out of line, but I feel as though the link dump has been really lacking lately. I really enjoy watching the podcast and opening a link to what you guys are talking about or pause to watch a video that you guys are talking about, but it seems rare that you guys have any of those links anymore. Not a huge thing! Just a small mention.

    I want nothing more than to see the RT guys try and take on some Doublewide players in Ultimate. I don't think they would talk shit about it again...
    ...Well they probably still would, but I'd feel better about it.

    I'm kind of displeased at the hype put on Black Desert's Character Creation...yeah, it's great...but Gus and Burnie were there at the All Points Bulletin reveal in 2009/2010. To this date APB (now APB: Reloaded) has the most in-depth and unmatched customization in any game to date and has held that title since 2010.

    Black Desert has hair...but if you really look into it, most are predetermined preset alterations that are slight (something found in many Korean MMOs and even many NA ports). APB's customization goes above and beyond...and is only getting better with the work being done to upgrade the game's engine. Not just mask it in overly saturated models and increasing the shine/bloom ten-fold.

    Kind of expected someone to remember that because they were pretty excited about it back then, but. Anyone who knows how far customization can go can really love APB. :)

    Love that Gavin mentioned that Rory McCann plays the guy who says "Yarp!" in Hott Fuzz. I think his name is Michael and he is nicknamed "Lurch." I think he also plays a paralyzed man in a tv-series Book Group." Great actor, some amazing range in characters too! :)

    Another great podcast, Thanks.

    Also I'm wondering if there is a place to hear or find out more about the songs at the end of the podcast?

    Anyway, another great episode, guys! I don't think it's any coincidence that some of my recent favorite episodes have had Michael in them.

    Oh and a special appearance from the Risemonger! smiley0.gif

    When the MMA section came up about an MMA champion or a UFC female champion (Ronda Rousey) for the next immersion to pummel Gavin and Michael, I immediately said no. As funny as the idea is, Gavin and Michael could severely get hurt. Just simple kicks and punches does enough damage to someone even with HEADGEAR on. Look at the stats for football players. Concussions being the main factor for damage. They arent trained either so the severity for accumulating damage is even higher. The guys from Jackass (Ryan Dunn) fought a female Muay Thai fighter and he received a possible broken jaw and bruised ribs. Thing is, they are used to being damaged in various ways. Want someone to pummel Gavin and Michael? Hire an MMA fighter that strictly uses Greco Roman wrestling and Brazilian Jiu jitsu on mats. The safer possible solution is to get tapped out. Strangled and taken down on mats. Not kicks and punches.

    The MMA thing what they could do instead is do Judo, as a higher ranked judoka can probably thoroughly destroy either Gavin or Michael following the rules loosely without it seeming "unseemly". Since most likely they'll get thrown or tripped in about a second and then pinned in one of the dozens of hold down or choking techniques with none of it actually likely to "hurt" either of them.

    well, somehow gavin is right...
    Thermoception: Ability to sense heat and cold
    Proprioception: This sense gives you the ability to tell where your body parts are
    Equilibrioception: The sense that allows you to keep your balance in terms of acceleration and directional changes

    Xbox One pro tip, hold power button for 10 seconds to completely turn power off, and then hit it again to turn it back on. Full reboot without unplugging.
