Couch Podtatoes Ep 91: Female Links and Eri Stinks

Those of you who have been paying attention will probably have heard the scuttlebutt about the whole Link gender swapping issue that arose over the past week. I wrote a post about it myself, as did Eri and other members of the community. Later, it was clear that though the discussion was a good one, it was stretched out over so many different websites that we should probably combine all of the thoughts into a podcast. I ran a poll, our fans voted and we ended up rolling with it. So we talk about gender swapping of Link and other iconic characters, in video games, movies, and comic books. Later we also relate the same sort of ideas toward the changing of ethnicities as well. I'm pretty sure there's some dick jokes in there as well, but that's nothing new. We ended the debate 1-1, so I guess we'll have to run another round the next time there's a hotbutton issue that me and Eri at least partially disagree on. Enjoy the rant. We'll be back in a week.

Couch Podtatoes Ep 90: #E32016

E3 2016 is here, and as is tradition here on Couch Podatoes, we're talking all about it and getting hyped for the next big things in video games! Just like the past two years, we're talking about the games we're most excited about, and gushing over what we're hoping to see more of. Prior to recording this show the Electronic Arts conference was streamed live from Twitch, and we start off the show by talking about what we saw during that presentation. Afterwards we jump into our expectations for the rest of the show, part of which is happening this evening, and the rest over the next couple of days. That's the bulk of the show for this week, but we'll be back in 7 days or less with another trip to Doone's Digital Frontier, so don't miss out!

Couch Podtatoes Ep 89: The Can't Catch Up Myth

Tacktix is back to tackle another issue, and this time he's brining to light some issues with the "Can't Catch Up" myth, along with presenting his "90/10" rule. You'll have to listen to the episode to know what he means by all of this, but the TLDR version is that this has to do with PvE gear treadmills along with the issue of gear in PvP engagements. We tackle these issues and have some witty banter about the games we've been playing lately as well. Check it out and let us know what your thoughts are!

Couch Podtatoes Ep 88: A Short Conversation with Izlain

Welcome back to another episode of the show. This weekend I spent some time out of town, and we didn't really plan around that so I ended up just slapping together a short show for your listening pleasure. I talk about some free-to-play fuckery, announce the NBI, and cover some idiocy on the internet. I won't say more or else I'll spoil the show, as it's rather short. Talking to yourself is rather weird but I hope it ended up sounding alright in the end! We'll be back next week with our regularly scheduled news show. Until then, enjoy the rest of the holiday weekend!
