Now I want someone to sing "World of Assassination" in the style of Willy Wonka.

I enjoyed the discussion of funny gaming moments, but agree it is hard to tell stories because of the "you had to be there" factor.

Anything with a 'push' mechanic, and ledges, like Skyrim's force shout, or Jedi: Fallen Order, will have me giggling stupidly as I send enemies and objects flying.

Disco Elysium has a bit where you come down from your hotel room to the bar, and the bartender/manager says you owe him money for the bill — money you don’t have. There is a Savoire Faire skill check to "slip away unnoticed". If you succeed, you simply run to the exit door and the manager gives you a mouthful as you leave. If you fail, you run to the exit door, and ... halfway to the door, you go into a John Woo slo-mo as you leap into the air, twist in mid-air to face the bartender and shoot him double birds before crashlanding on a woman in a wheelchair. That was when I knew this game was special.

In my first run through Dark Souls stream I just got to the part where flying imps pick the PC up and carry them to Anor Londo. Later in the level you encounter them again, hanging out on a roof.

In that fight you push them off of the building and - despite CLEARLY having FUNCTIONAL wings and whole cut screen devoted to them FLYING A GREAT DISTANCE - they plummet to their doom.

In the later Far Crys I always enjoyed using the wingsuit. In Far Cry 4 I ran and flung myself off a high cliff. Despite repeatedly hitting the correct button to activate said suit, I plummeted to my death. When I checked afterwards I hadn’t purchased the wingsuit yet.

This is kind of like Twitter and Facebook. You make an honest comment and it vanishes.

I do not like the format of this show. Please go back to the old hosts. For the love of God. Oh...can I say that?

Hey there,

I deleted your previous comment, but forgot to DM you after while I was multitasking, which is my mistake. I understand wanting things to be the way they were (it's been year and a half now), but the folks you want to do the cast weekly don't want to pursue that any longer, so harping about it in the comments a) won't get you what you want and b) is disrespectful to the people currently running the show, and (in my opinion) doing a great job finding a new voice for it.

I understand it's coming from a place of appreciating something you enjoyed in the past, but the demands are disrespectful and unproductive. Please stop.

What a weird way, and place, to try to start a #cancelculture fight.

I vote for time-traveling dinosaurs for the next story roost game.
