Episode 66

The crew fully assembles to record this week’s episode of the MAC Address Podcast and the crew drinks Dale’s Pale Ale and Henry’s Hard Orange Soda.  Catching up on what happened in the past week or three they find it hard to stay on topic as they veer off into talk about the upcoming Hardcore Henry theatrical release.

Jirah experiences for himself the console-to-PC streaming capabilities of the Xbox to a pleasantly surprising good experience, then rescues his vault residents after abandoning them for months in the wasteland, and his other mobile game that plays itself with childish giggling about his guild’s name.

Will was too busy working and cosplaying as “Florida Man” to play many games, but finds some time to squeeze in Theatrythm jamming out to some Final Fantasy jams while the lady next to him on the flight thinks she’s dealing with a late stage Parkinson’s patient.

Matt got a new phone case with excellent practical joke potential and then exposes his crazy fake video game religion.  Sun for the Sun God, blood for the purple bros.  He also helped build a wall to Make His Backyard Great Again.  He also tried his darndest to figure out how to use a spray paint can.

Merrick wrapped up some video games off his achievement tracking list, tried out the Mirror’s Edge beta, and watched a show on Netflix.

In the news Romero tries to make another go at it, getting some people on board with his Kickstarter.  I remain skeptical, others do not as it’s already more than 10% of its way to the goal in the first 24 hours.

All Bangladeshi security experts must have migrated to India because their bank had so little security it surprising someone didn’t accidently steal money from them years ago.

Gearbox has a Borderlands has a movie in the works and Merrick is a bit jaded in regards to American violence in the media as news surfaces that they are aiming towards an hard “R” rating.

At some point Merrick starts to ramble on about how he doesn’t like the “half step” consoles coming from Sony; no word on Microsoft at this time.  By no means being articulate about his point, Merrick is pretty sure they’ll just fuck it up, while Jirah likes the possibility of a well executed granular updates to the hardware yearly.

The crew then recommends some stuff that I don’t remember.  I’m blaming Dale for the memory loss.

Episode 65

With Jirah and Will’s absence weighing heavy on Matt and Merrick, they recruit a third member, Jessica, to record and hunt for clues on their whereabouts.  With a growler of Holy City Brewing’s Smells Like Rick at hand, the crew decide to just deal with their lost compadres tomorrow and reassure themselves with empty platitudes of “Oh, I’m sure their fine; no open wells around these here parts.”

Matt talks about some time he got with Life is Strange how Dark Souls 3 is consuming all his free time aside from when he’s elbow deep working on his tranny, fixing his blow-off-valve, or adjusting his driveshaft.

Jessica covers her current focus of raising children and Pinata and the subtle differences between while laying out plans for a fun family weekend activity destined for Pinterest.

Merrick argues his spelling of “Binged” and “binged”, tells a haunting tale of the pro soda drinking circuit, Archer, and Quantum Break.

In the news we talk about a successfully funded Dark Souls board game on Kickstarter, and the impending half-step console for PlayStation, will Microsoft answer to this PlayStation 4.5 (or 4k, or NEO, or whatever?), I, for one, hope not.
