Sup Holmes? Shannon and Tommy talk sex, love and gaming


[Destructoid’s Director of Communications Hamza Aziz asked Jonathan Holmes to make a show called ‘Sup, Holmes?‘ so that Destructoid could later sell a t-shirt that says ‘Sup, Holmes?’ on it. This is that show. Missed the live recording? The full episode is above. Download the audio-only podcast version of this episode or subscribe to the podcast feed. Find more episodes here.]

On this week’s episode of Sup Holmes?, we have a very special pair of guests, Shannon from Dtoid’s Wii U coverage from last year’s E3, and Tommy Refenes, co-star of Indie Game: The Movie and half of the team responsible for Super Meat Boy. I think these two are an item. We’re going to talk about videogame fans who want to be lovers. By that I mean, we’re going to swap sex, love, and dating advice for people who play videogames a lot.

Just like in a Gameboy game... a nice tight little world... and all its inhabitants... made out of little building blocks... Why can't these little pixels be the building blocks for love..? For loss... for understanding"- James Kochalka, Reinventing Everything part 1 "I wonder if James Kolchalka has played Mother 3 yet?" Jonathan Holmes
