The Boss Battle Podcast: Nostalgia Talk

This week, the boys discuss games (or genres) from their past that they seemed to have forgotten, only to relive in their adulthood and how awesome they actually were.

How awesome is that?

From baseball to RPGs to WWF, nothing is off limits when it came to making sure we felt like a kid again and how awesome these games really were.

Video game themed things from around the Internet…net…net!

Hey everyone! It’s the column that’s dangerous to go alone on the internet without! Now with more guest posters! It’s time for Video Game themed things from around the internet…net…net! with your special guest poster BobbyFJtown filling in for Chachi who is on assignment.

Since Fallout 4 is the biggest thing going in gaming right now, I figured we should have a fallout themed article today!

First Up!

Conan O’Brien continues his epic journey through video games in his latest clueless gamer, this time he’s playing Fallout 4, most of it is Conan just looking for a lady, and admiring his physic, but as usual Conan tackles the game with his true comedic know how.

Next Up!

Fallout 4’s script is so large (how large is it!) It’s so large that Codworth, who is your robot butler in the game can say more than 1,000 names, in the video below they test what can and can’t be said by Codsworth, with sexy results!

and Finally…

Fallout4Poster

Etsy Artist Lautstarke made a really awesome Fallout 4 Game poster, there are tons of Fallout 4 merch on Etsy but this print really caught my eye, The print can be purchased on Lautstarke’s etsy store for $15.00 a print.

That’s gonna do it for this special Fallout Themed guest posted Video themed things from around the internet…net…net! Back to you Chachi! (next week)

Rizz Plays Unmechanical Part 1 (and BONUS part 2)

In this episode, Rizz starts his journey to get out of the underground (while pressing random buttons, he causes the backstory to suddenly stop…because he’s so smart…)

ALSO, due to internet problems, here’s a special treat! PART 2 OF UNMECHANICAL (for, like, a minute).

Social Anxiety, video games, and you!

Star-Wars-Battlefront_2015_05-08-15_002

This weekend I played the Star Wars Battlefront Beta, it was fun, but I chose to play without a microphone, or headset.  I also have been playing Destiny, again without a headset or a microphone.  I may not act like it but I, like many people have some social anxiety when it comes to meeting new people, even in the video game world.

I think this is the reason why I skipped World of Warcraft and other MMOs, I purchased Guild Wars 2 when my PC was able to play computer games, and did most of the quests myself.  I’m not sure why I don’t like to play games with other people.  I’m fine with playing with friends.  My friends and I used to play Call of Duty weekly, almost daily, but I know my friends and I know what they’re going to say pretty much and how they’re going to interact with me.  I kinda play online games running away from strangers.  I guess I’m just programmed like that.

This brings me to my point, most of the time that I have played games online against other people it’s not been a pleasant experience.  Little kids calling me names that they shouldn’t be saying, dude bros, people playing music loudly.  I’m not saying everyone is terrible, I’m sure some people are cool, and I get that not everyone is a terrible person, and part of it is me.  I have social anxieties in real life too, like a lot of people, I’m awkward.

That being said, I want to hear from you, do you have fears and social anxieties when it comes to gaming? Are you afraid to make new friends online?

I’m going to try to be a better gamer, and face my fears.  I’m going to play games with a headset again, and try to make some virtual friends,   Destiny awaits.
