    My entry for DMC is Devil will cry when his feet are tickled. Because deep down inside he is a kid :)

  3. Good show guys, and thanks for the shoutout.

    I can’t wait for Ni No Kuni. The review so far have been stellar.

    As for the DmC comp, I think the sight of Frawlz’s sweaty, pimpled ass would make the devil cry… blood, after he pulls out his horns and shoves them into his eye-sockets!

    My another entry for DMC:

    Devil sometimes takes time off to Visit Hagus habitat and cries softly looking at innocently and merrily jumping hagus around the planes, valley’s of scotland.

    I do not think I can beat Diarmuid post but I will try 

    The thing that can make the Devil cry is Dan. When he is carried in by Jon and Tim to take over his job, and then makes the Devil his bitch. 

     

    Great Show as long always =D

    TBH, unless the T-shirts have a few XX’s added to the L on them, there is little point in me getting them. If the guys confirm that there are too small, then I forfeit my entry.

    On a side note, [I know it’s the wrong podcast but…] F U to the Far Cry 3 side quest where you have to kill a bear with a machete. F U I say.

  7. Ridcullys Hat

    Good show chaps and congratulations to Tim for getting my name right thumb.

     

    The thing that can make the devil cry is that jim won’t fix it for him, he’s apparently to old.

    I know, I’m going to hell but someone had to do it.

  8. Good Show chaps,

    Enjoyed listening while running in the London snow (like a chubby British version of Rocky 4).

    Far Cry 3? I thought that was footage of Glasgow on a Friday night?

    My DMC torso trouser entry is this by the way: As we all know the Devil is in fact James Van Der Beek who I have already made cry by telling him what Jon keeps up his Kiilt, here’s the proof;

    The devil cries nightly these days, since I discovered that he was in fact cliff Richard and got the BBC to stop playing his awful music

    On the subject of special edition and models/toys, I did get the halo reach legendary with noble team sculpture. I also have bioshock with the big daddy figure and batman: arkham city with a batman sculpture (although I am a batman fan boy  and I would have got it if it came with batman pants). Now, I await my berating from Dan. Oh, I do have a fiance and she doesn’t mind the fact I am a massive nerd with a love of comics, games and toys. She hasn’t however seen my massive collection of movie figures, comic memorabilia et al. As its all in my mums attic. The kids will love it, she may cry.

    Mine likes to point out daily that I’m a bit sad with my comics, toys and pre-order bonus tat lol (Arkham City Batman Statue is a must have for any Bat-fan though). The worse pre-order bonus I currently have is a Fable III special edition pack Which to this day I regret buying, its a game case that looks like a faux-leather book. It looks bloody stupid and a waste of money!

    I have that as well! I wouldn’t say it was the worst though. My hardened cod:blops was the worst. A bloody medal! What do I want the medal for?!?! Buyers remorse almost instantly with that one. I also have the oblivion with the coin and faux book thing. No remorse with that one though. It was the 1st 360 game I got. Still love that game.

  13. There once was a devil called Bob,

    who you’ll find was a bit of a slob.

     

    He thought he was macho,

    til god took a nacho

     

    and used it to sever his nob.

    Remember the Gears of War 3 with the DLC code engraved onto a thick metal Cog-Tag? Who the Hell would want that giant lump of metal afterwards? That’s probably the worst collector piece out there. 

  15. Ridcullys Hat

    That could be the worst. Once the code is used you just have a stylized lump of tat. I’m trying to think of worse and am struggling.

    Great show, guys! Even though I think this dismembered bust must be the worst piece of gaming related merchandise in history, Dan’s argument that Bungie’s Master Chief helmet is actually a sinister tool meant to lure us into beheading our felines and infants, should have won the Great British Debate. I suggest that rather than awarding victory to the side that obviously seems to be the most correct, the winner should be he who invents the best/most creative/most entertaining argument with what he has to work with. Seriously Tim, LESBIANS! It was so obvious! :)

    With regard to making the devil cry, in Milton’s Paradise Lost, after Satan and his legions of rebellious angels were cast into Hell, there is a brief break in his perpetual loathing of God, where he has a moment of clarity and weeps with guilt for having led his followers to their eternal damnation. But if ever there could be another such tragedy to befall the defiant angel that it would cause him to weep a second time, surely it must be the tragic loss of our beloved Blue Show. For the death of such a bounteous source of dick and fart jokes must provoke agony and torment in even the most hateful of taints. May Rothbart, PMPB and Frawlz rest in pee.

    I have to agree. For the use of Milton alone this has to win.

    For everyone else, contest-wise, looks like I might have to give away more prizes than I was planning to! happy

  22. Trying to think of more things that would make the Devil cry without dragging Jon into it is difficult…hmmm

  23. RidcullysHat

    The devil cries due to contracting herpes at a Justin bieber concert.

  24. Badhaggis

    Am I the only one who is completely uninterested in Ne no Kuni or what ever it’s bloody name is?

     

    Stuff and nonsense says I.

    Many people don’t care. Most people have never heard of it.

    However, fans of old-style JRPGs or fans of Level 5 or fans of Studio Ghibli should be looking forward to it IMO. I just so happen to belong to all three groups.

    As a Studio Ghibli fan I’m interested in it, unfortunately I no longer own a PS3 sad so I’m not so excited about it’s release. 

  28. RidcullysHat

    If I had a PS3 I would have pre ordered this ages ago. I’m a big ghibli fan and old school Jrpgs so this really appeals. Just need a way of getting a PS3.

  29. hey guys bit late on listening to the pod this week been mega under the weather and i dont mean like you england folk with your white blanket of death lol which can i add is a refreshing change from us up north that usually get the crap weather!!
