BRB Boom 51: Make It Statutory

It’s time, once again, to put boom in your boom and listen to BRB Boom. This week, DogsDie, Smelly Pirate and Yoshifett have geekgasms as they geek out about getting old, Anna Kendrick, completing games, K/D ratio, peer pressure, Candy Crush, Grown Ups 2, Xbone pricing and whatever random topics come to mind.

Please be sure to subscribe to the BRB Boom feed on iTunes or RSS. If you insist, you can always just download the mp3. If you are currently using a computer with iTunes on it, would you mind heading over there and leaving some feedback?

    FTL is brilliant, I want to have another go at it, but the pile of steam sale games I now own mean I don’t have the time now.

    I’m totally with Yoshi, I watched Pitch Perfect yesterday and I wanted to do stuff to that person of the female species (not Fat Amy). The ginger one was also very tent pitching.

  3. Thanks for the new show guys, always a pleasure. Loved how most of is was “make it *something* dem” and thug-speak. I was the guy that suggested you guys go with your proper names by the way –  Don’t though, it’s funnier to hear you guys mess up :)

    Make it thank dem.

    I can hardly listen to Virtual Insanity these days, but Smelly’s version was goood!

    FTL is kicking my ass, haven’t ever had a playthrough where i made it past the 3rd sector. It’s always pretty smooth going until you get that one fight that kills half the crew just shuts down your will to continue. Any tips will be appreciated.

    I’d like to mention that Pacific Rim was #1 Internationally, and is overall a better product outside of America. It’s just on the brink of recouping its production budget and i’m hoping it will net Del Toro some more cash from blu-ray sales. I doubt a sequel is likely though, and that sucks.

    “That’s remarkable news Smelly!”  *BONG*

    I see Yoshi’s words are now sanctioned by Taco Bell. 

    One thing, the 50$ per year to play multiplayer on PSN includes a PS+ membership.  Good way to intro people to getting their games through the psn store.

    The end of season 2 Walking Dead, one minute Lori’s all Lady Macbeth, the next it’s “Oh my God, you killed Shane?  You B\*stard!”  Felt sorry for the actress having to sell that one.

    There’s an episode in season 3 that is beyond amazing, made the whole series worthwhile so far.

    Sick of the hand-wringing over the next gen already.  Xbone will be fine.  So will the PS4.  The real question is…what will Naughty Dog’s next game be?

    @Yoshi – Congrats on your achievement mongering – that’s awesome. As a side note, I picked up a 3DS XL and am starting Ocarina of Time.

     

    @Dogsdie – Yeah I picked up FTL in the recent sale but your talking about it on the show made me play it. I can see sinking a lot of hours into this.

     

    @Smelly – Good parody song.

    Great show as always. Yoshi: Be thankful you don’t get Funnel Webs, like we do in Sydney. Those things will drink your beer, turn all your lights on and leave the toilet seat down…DOWN! Just finished “Virtue’s Last Reward” for Vita, and highly recommend for anyone that enjoys a thought-provoking, sci-fi, story/puzzle mix. Building a gaming rig over the next month, so delved into Steam just prior to the latest sales – dangerous. So many games; so cheap. Its comforting to know that PC problems still persist today though, as there are a number of games I can’t run or stopped working after an update. Lastly, Pacific Rim is a definitive big screen experience, so make sure to see it in cinemas, but think twice about 3D. Found the darker image, plus cluttered battles, caused issues when trying to focus in certain scenes on an Imax screen – might be fine on a standard cinema screen. Soldier on guys – your never too old to keep it “Statutory”. Cheers

    Virtue’s last reward is amazing! I’ve heard that it didn’t sell too well in Japan and International sales figures aren’t even listed on vgchartz. I’m praying for the last game to see the light of day, the cliffhanger from VLR is killing me!

    Also, anyone else think that the title for this episode is a missed opportunity for a joke? “Make it Statutory dem” is pretty funny in my opinion.

      I believe it was the sequel to “999”, so I would be happy if they ported that over as well. I think I read this was going to happen, minus the puzzle aspects? Regardless, I want more.

  9. sheezcrafty

    Anyone played “The Walking Dead” game?  I’m tempted but concerned about it being rather traumatizing.

    You don’t have a ds to play 999? As you said, it’s coming out on the iphone “by autumn”, according to the publisher. You’re in for a treat! There were a few plot points that were introduced in 999 that got resolved in vlr. Best of all you’ll get more insight to the characters that returned in vlr.

  12. Thanks for the feedback ya’ll =)

     

    So who has gotten the furthest in FTL?  WHY DO I SUCK!?  Haven’t gotten past the 6th phase.
