AoY Podcast #112 – E3 2017


Also known as:”How you supposed to pronounce that ‘sublubebudequuu?'”

So another year of E3 has come and gone, and Dustin and Jonn are here to talk about it.

(0:00 – 49:35) E3 2017 Review – Bottom Line: Nintendo won it all, everyone else didn’t show up, and Chad Warden couldn’t save Sony either. Dustin and Jonn go into a bit of detail as to why that obvious conclusion came to be, but it doesn’t take an idiot to figure that out. We talk about the games that we look forward too that weren’t announced, dumb DLC add-ons and more.

(49:35 – 1:50:56) Closing Remarks – More was said on closing remarks than on E3, and that should say something. Topics arise like how Chris Chan was on the news again, RIP Adam West, the Danny Phantom shooter, anime we bought, the hate on Barney the Dinosaur, bad movies Dustin doesn’t remember and more.

 

Music Selection:

OP – Looks like Mario and the gang won this year…

ED – Why did we talk about Barney, I dunno…

AoY Podcast #111 – JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Battle Tendency Review


This show has: “I’ll be in support of Daft Censorship”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 1:48:00)

So Animazement is this weekend, which is where Dustin is going to make his trek once again and needs to put something out this month. So, it’s time for our hosts to combine their Hamon powers into one, by letting this podcast take it’s rightful STAND in reviewing Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Battle Tendency.

(0:00 – 1:18:20) Review: Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Battle Tendency – Since its been a few years since we reviewed Phantom Blood, this podcast is able to combine four entities into reviewing Jojo’s once more. But, in a twist of foreseen fate, our guest Daft was a Troll Pillar Man the whole time!! How will Dustin, Jonn and Josh combat this despicable fiend? By basically letting him do whatever he wants to the show.

In all seriousness, Jojo’s ended on Toonami, so the four hosts came together to talk about it. Actually, it was mostly a critique off a Toonzone thread of some mod bashing the show, so there was a lot to say on that. There is also discussions on Chris Chan mummified shirt being discovered, Nazisploitation films, Josh and his experiences with anime clubs, how Mega 64 paid homage to our podcast, 4D theme park rides, and how Disneyland employees handle guests suicide.

(1:18:20 – 1:48:00) Closing Remarks – This gets the hosts talking about if our world will be going to World War 3 again, Jonn buying the new Zelda game, SNES Mini discussion, the History of Buy-Rite Video Games, anime releases coming out soon like Record of Lodoss War and titles from Discotek, and much more.

What better way to end out 2016 but to travel back long ago, in a galaxy far far away. This time Dustin and Jonn are joined by previous guests Daft and Vekou to talk about Star Wars: Rogue One.

(0:00 – 1:07:30) Review – Star Wars: Rogue One Review – The council of nerds have all gathered to talk about the recent Star Wars film, which seems to be divided in the fandom of who likes and dislikes this movie. All hosts mention the movies strengths and weaknesses, as well as talk about other Star Wars material. This of course gets us talking about story lines in video games, nerd conversations on Clerks movie levels, and much more.

(1:07:30 – 3:02:44) Post-Christmas Holiday Closing Remarks – A lot has happened over the past month, and the hosts have something to say about it. Aside from talking about what we all got for Christmas, we give RIP shout outs to Alan Thicke, Carrie Fisher and George Michael passings. We also mention convention talk from Daft’s North East Comic Con review and seeing the Hanna Barbera exhibit, where as Dustin went to experience what happens when a high school puts together a comic con in the middle of nowhere. There is also discussion of a book about Tommy Wiseau, talk of terrible and cool animation industry people, Dustin desire to meet Jerry Beck and Fred Patton, abandoned Flinstone parks, the recent ramblings of Peter Fay, who to ban from our chat, and much more.

So to stay with proper convention review tradition, Dustin brings us his convention coverage of Animazement, 3 months after it happened, because that’s how we roll on this podcast.

(0:00 – 1:28:05) Con Report: Animazement 2016 – Because the summer was full of other episodes of topics that had a more pressing matter to be put out, Dustin finally tells his tale of his yearly trek to Animazement. All in all, between being stuck down in the dealers room dungeon by day and hitting up the virtual arcade streets of Initial D by night, this was a rather laid back year for Dustin. Of course, it wasn’t entirely that boring since he went on his tales of playing really good VR and arcade games in turn for house sitting at Mighty Rabbit Studios over the con weekend, working the dealers room beat, meeting up with old friends of the Initial D arcade scene, items to be sold and had and much more. This also goes off track a bit with Jonn and Dustin talking about retro gaming, recording the Animeigo panel, what is true cyberpunk, Dustin idea anime panels to get approved, and still more to add.

(1:28:05 – 1:38:17) Closing Remarks – This didn’t last that long since the news was rather irrelevant from things TCR Ghost said back in May, card game talk, people on ani-twitter gripe against anime cons, cats and more. Pretty soon well be getting to episode 100…

SPEAKING OF OUR UPCOMING 100TH EPISODE!!: Here’s the deal: Episode 100 is coming up and both hosts want you listeners to send us some suggestions on what to do. Should we read email sent by you? Should we do a review of something? Show off our anime collection on video? Demolition Derby? I dunno, you tell us! So to send us suggestions, email us at: aoypodcast@gmail.com, or you could tweet at us over at@AoYPodcast. It’s that simple to use guys! Depending on how many people submit ideas, Dustin and Jonn will pick the most doable idea and execute it, and there will be recognition for it! So let the podcast know by Episode 99 and we’ll see what happens!
