AoY Podcast #122 – The Dark Side Christmas Special (Star Wars: The Last Jedi Review)


Also known as: “What planet grows grey tomato’s… THAT ARE ROCKS!?”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 4:27:09)

Happy New Year!!! 2018 will be our year and savior for humanity until such time when social media says its the worst year ever (like the end of every year on Twitter). So what better way to reign in the new year with our hosts ranting about Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

(0:00 – 2:40:15) The Dark Side Review! Star Wars: The Last Jedi – This film seems to be equally split between those who love and hate this film, just like the balance of the force. Dustin, Jonn and guest Vekou (who shows up about 45 minutes in) state their views on the film. As you can expect, spoilers are afoot in great detail. This lets us compare the Star Wars films to the Fast and Furious film series, how Jonn dog spoke up for animal rights on this film, how Disney can royally screw up a beloved science fiction series, and much more!

(2:40:15 – 4:27:09) Christmas Closing Remarks – This was recorded the next night with Jonn and Dustin keeping the mics warm on a post Christmas night, and more sound proof for Dustin since he recorded in his “sound proof” safe space closet (making his mic sound louder in the process). The remarks include bathroom gender rules, Dustin panels at Big Fandom Greenville, more Star Wars talk, what we got for Christmas, upcoming AnimEigo Kickstarters, video game talk, James Bond talk, Dustin Christmas movies he saw this year, 80’s cartoon themes and the goofyness of Voltron, Chris Chan and Ghost talk, the fall of Bitcoin and so much more!

 

Music Selection:

OP – The theme of Doom by the Disney Star Wars Machine…

ED 1 – This is the real Dark Side Review…

ED 2 – Our theme song for Disney Star Wars (a.k.a. I’m glad we said it all…)

Tis the Season to be down for a post-apocalyptic beatdown, where this time Dustin and Jonn travel to 198x once again to see how Christmas went down in Fist of the North Star Arc 4!

(0:00 – 1:07:38) Review: Fist of the North Star Arc 4 – After almost 4 years since we last talked about Hokuto no Ken, it’s time both hosts went head strong and battled for our lives against the Ken-Oh Army! This isn’t intended as a holiday special, but it seemed perfect to add this review into the show 4 months after it was first recorded back in August…..something. Both hosts tell their tales on how they got the ultimate set for the retail value of a 2002 ADV DVD, which gives you listeners almost another 100 episodes (maybe) before you might get a review from us on Hokuto no Ken 2 . If the story of Jesus is considered The Greatest Story Ever Told, then consider this climatic end to Fist of the North Star as the greatest story ever told, except on Christmas cuz baby Jesus has gotta come first. Both host also talk about dumb people on the internet, the new iPhone (from 4 months ago), anime forum stupidity, who Jacob T. Paschal really is and his secret buying habits (U NO IM RITE!),and more. (Oh yea, the audio in this is pretty garbage, but oh well, not gonna talk about Fist for a while, so just suck it up!)

Promo: I know its the holiday season, but i’m not gonna add in an audio piece this time for Anime Cart or RightStuf because those last two podcast promos I did explain all of that. But since your not gonna listen to them (like I know your not), for Anime Cart just type in the promo code AOYPODCAST when you check out something you want, which gives you a bit of a discount for this holiday season…. and any time after that. Just use your grandma’s money to pay for that Attack on Titan statue you really want, or didn’t but now you do!

(1:07:38 – 1:33:45) Closing Remarks: Seeing how this information is old as dirt, its about when Youtube was doing crackdown on monitization videos, Gundam stuff, both hosts having connection issues (which for the most part is fine now), and much more. Stay tuned for the holiday zinger brought to you by Sean Ryan and Kevin Gray.

Music Selection:

OP – How to have Christmas in the Post-Apocalypse…

ED – Fist, you were able to ease my long pain after all…

Zinger – Christmas as sung by Jacob T. Paschal…

With Christmas coming around the corner very soon, you might be struggling to get some good deals on anime, and we can understand your concern. But fear not anime holiday shopper, Dustin was in the better (or worst) moods to drunkenly tell you at 1 a.m. what he wants you to purchase over at Right Stuf! 

Let’s be honest, this is filling in till our next review, and Dustin thought it was a good idea last night that instead of talking to himself in the seclusion of his room in a drunken stupor, it would be a fantastic idea to make a recording for anyone wanting to waste time listening to it. Also to add, it’s all Jonn fault for not being online last night to review what should have been recorded, so blame him even more than Dustin for this travesty. We should also note, the opinions of one co-host inebriated judgment on anime should not affect anything you want to buy through Right Stuf this holiday season. If anything, Right Stuf should be cutting us a check for the best promotion they have ever heard… maybe?

Music Selection:

OP – Dustin has always had an inner Coach McGuirk

ED – We know all about the Right Stuff Baby!!

Dustin inner Rick to be heard on the podcast…


Playing Games: Xbox Saturday


I haven’t posted one of these things in almost a year since we started, but I’d figure its high time we did one again. My goal was to make this something my co-host and I can do as Lets Plays, but our schedules are kinda different and so is our tastes in games it seems.

This time I’m gonna post up Xbox games that I picked up and decided to try them out for a short period of time, or till I got fustrated enough at the game and i’m like “well FORGET THIS!!” This is a pre-Christmas gift for you guys kinda, but there will be something out on Christmas for you guys, so stay tuned.

Part 1 – I was trying out my Murakumo game that this counts as the second time playing it, and it would have been fine if my stream wasn’t disconnected randomly. (I should also mention I have a mic right next to the speaker output because the audio settings on my Dazzle stream video component device wont recognize audio in the FLash Media Live Encoder program for some reason and that was the only ghetto way I could jerry rig sound for the stream.)

Part 2 – Which leads to having a second part where I continue my gameplay of Murakumo, thought one enemy was stupid, stopped playing and put in a King of Fighters NeoWave game, till I fought Geese and was like all “MAN FORGET THIS GAME!” because using an Xbox controller to play a game like that is stupid because the D-pads on Xbox controllers are always terrible to use for fighting games period. Then the rest of the stream is the Regular Show Christmas Special, because it so happened to be on TV and I was like “eh, why not?”

Here is my brief game play of SVC Chaos before the stream decided to cut out on its own, then I spent the rest of my day helping my parents organize the garage.
