We were playing CoD: Advanced Warfare, but we wanted to hang with Stephan at the skate park photo
We were playing CoD: Advanced Warfare, but we wanted to hang with Stephan at the skate park
by Bill Zoeker

Max and I continue to fumble around in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, as our minds wander to some predictably stupid places. We talk about meeting an imaginary teen named Stephan at the skate park, how to find "The Boob," and aggravatingly stupid YouTube comments.

Talking about Gilmore Girls while playing Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare just doesn't seem right photo
Talking about Gilmore Girls while playing Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare just doesn't seem right
by Bill Zoeker

Max and I continue giving the benefit of the doubt to Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Max started talking about a crazy theory he has connecting the television shows Gilmore Girls and Californication because his brain was polluted by a combination of oysters and vodka. Don't do booze, kids.

Majora's Mask is my favorite game about being a young adult photo
Majora's Mask is my favorite game about being a young adult
by Jonathan Holmes

Ocarina of Time is one of those incredibly well made games that just never clicked with me. Maybe it's because it was too much like A Link to the Past, except everything looks worse and takes longer to do. Maybe it's because the game's theme of being a child and an adult at the same time is something I can't relate with. Either way, I've tried repeatedly to finish the game and I always lose interest well before the end.

I have the exact opposite relationship with Majora's Mask. Like Earthbound, it's a game that I have not been able to stop playing since it first came out over 15 years ago. I think about it pretty regularly, and talk about with people who aren't at all interested in the topic at least once a month because I can't help it.

Majora's Mask is a game about do-overs. It actually feels like a do-over of the game that came before it. Ocarina wanted to be about being an adult, but in the end, it was just about being in an adult's body while living like a child, experiencing the best of both worlds. Majora's Mask does the opposite. It's about having to live like an adult and being treated like a child. It's about learning from your mistakes, being empathetic, and knowing that every second you're on this planet is another second closer to your inevitable death.

Max and I suck at Advanced Warfare, but that never stops us from doing anything
by Bill Zoeker

Max and I got our hands on a copy of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. We figured we should probably play it because people like to watch men get sweaty in videogames or whatever. Anyway, we recorded this the day after Max's birthday, so we were both pretty hungover, which served to exacerbate our lack of shooter skill and the incoherence of our jokes. Enjoy.

Hardline 35: Majora's Mask 3DS, plural amiibo, and Paris smells like candy photo
Hardline 35: Majora's Mask 3DS, plural amiibo, and Paris smells like candy
by Jordan Devore

[This episode of Hardline is sponsored by The Crew. We're giving away a silly amount of codes for this weekend's beta on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One right now. Claim yours here.]

It's been a while since Brett, Steven, and I have been in the same virtual room together to chat about games 'n' stuff so our reunion on this week's Hardline got out of control.

We talked about Majora's Mask for 3DS, amiibo (not amiibos), Game Boy Advances, The Witcher 3's free DLC, Steven's garbage- and candy-filled trip to Paris Games Week and Game Connection, and these culturally significant photos.

Blizzard fails to announce Rock & Roll Racing 2

Bayonetta 2 is giving me the Tetris effect

Bayonetta kicked my ass last week, but I finished it (after giving in and switching the difficulty setting to Easy). I survived Gracious and Glorious, and sent you-know-who hurtling into the you-know-what. Damn, what a cool g...

Max and I wrap up our dip into Shadow Warrior on PS4. We make weird sex noises, talk about Bone Thugz-N-Harmony, and, I, as always, end up declaring I want to watch Demolition Man.

We took the road less traveled in Shadow Warrior

As we forge on in Shadow Warrior on PS4, Max makes the mistake of letting me play for a bit. Then I ran all the way down the nearby streets and discovers some weird canopied cities filled with inactive robots at the end of the road. And now I have Boyz II Men stuck in my head.

I didn't think I'd enjoy Bayonetta this much

Fighting angels as a witch dressed up like Samus Aran is a fun way to spend an evening. I'm several years late to playing Bayonetta, a game I might have never sought out had Nintendo and Platinum not packaged it in with its W...

Max and I continue our rampage through Shadow Warrior on PS4. We try to figure out who wrote the song "Sledgehammer," and discover the in-game arcade machines. We also decided that everything was made out of raspberry jam.

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel illustrates the danger of nebulous season passes photo
Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel illustrates the danger of nebulous season passes
by Darren Nakamura

Over the weekend, details came out of PAX Australia regarding the first downloadable Vault Hunter for Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. At first, it looked to me like a commendable gesture for a series that receives a lot of criticism on its downloadable content policy. To include a new character in addition to the originally promised content for those loyal enough to buy a season pass seemed worthy of applause. However, that image was based on a misinterpretation of the official blog post's line that references "all four of the upcoming add-on content packs," and a few other (incorrect) assumptions.

As it turns out, the Handsome Jack Doppelganger Pack is DLC #1 for Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel (November 11 is upcoming, after all), and I could only feel more disappointed by that revelation if I had actually purchased this iteration's season pass. My condolences go out to those who did.

Hardline 34: Creepy games and crappy people
by Jordan Devore

Happy (early) Halloween! For this week's Hardline, Bill, Brett, and I reminisced about unintentionally scary games that bothered us as kids while Steven was off on the other side of the world throwing bread down a hole. Hope you like your podcasts full of tangents.
