Rebel FM Episode 152 – 09/21/2012

We’re here to make you mad as we talk at length about Borderlands 2 and just how much it (doesn’t) suck, and spend an ample amount of time talking about FTL before almost losing the entire podcast to wonderful technical issues. The day is saved and we close out with letters.

This week’s music in order of appearance:

Foo Fighters – My Hero;

Deftones – Leathers

    On the stealing Halo 4 kill confirmed stealing part. I’m glad that games like BF3, COD and Halo are starting to put in other multiplayer modes. I like that they steal as long as the implementation is good. Playing TDM for hours gets boring.
    I have yet to play a game with as many multiplayer modes as Timesplitters 2. Modes like Shrink, Flame Tag and Vampire are great.
    I wasted days playing that splitscreen and via system link.

    Hey guys, Liked the show, can’t wait to play Planetside 2. On the Borderlands 2 talk, I disliked the tone Arthur took. He was so authoritarian declaring that it had bad shooting for x and y, meanwhile Anthony was sitting next to him saying he enjoyed it. Arthur’s greatest strength as a video game reviewer is his distillation of mechanics however in this case he said x and y was bad game design even though others like it. I’m not saying you have to like it but designing something a certain way that you disagree with does not make it bad game design just different.

    Can’t really say if I agree with you or not as I’m playing on PC so it doesn’t have the aggressive auto aim, it was just a bit uncomfortable with the tone you took.

    Love the show. Not a fan of IGN or verge, but I like the 4 of you guys doing your weekly show. I feel like the 9.5 was a bit high for DiabloIII personally, but Anthony, those people are dumb who are emailing your gmail. It is one thing to disagree with you, but that is borderline harassment.

    To make a quick statement about Borderlands, I think people are holding the original borderlands up on a pedestal. I am still playing the first on PC, but that game is a little janky, the combat is a little repetitive, and the enemies are a little bit mundane as far as being interesting adversaries, but I loved the heck out of the first game but would probably only give it a 7ish. Like Jesse said, I feel Arthur was being a little harsh to Anthony as Anthony was just saying that he enjoyed the game overall, not saying it was the best thing ever, but just had a good time and it felt like Arthur was trying to get Anthony to apologize for it.

    Good show like always and Arthur, love the music selection again this week. I am so pumped for November when the new Deftones album comes out!
