Transmediacrity A podcast about media through an analytical, admiring and alternative perspective.

October 13, 2017  

The Media Maidenz return with more scathing indictments, this time for episodes 4-6 of Sunrise's cult classic "Betterman." After settling on the correct pronounciation of Mode Warp and the objective quality of Akamatsu Industries' bodysuits, the girls briefly imagineer a world of new, interesting Kadokawa hiring decisions, break down the ever-shifting physics of everyone's supernatural powers, call Betterman racist, walk it back, and then call it racist again, and ponder the sparsity of mental health services in the workplace hell that is the overall Algernon investigation. Spoiler Alert: Elephants are Chads. Also, Madiha is deeply sorry about, well, everything that happened, really.

The Media Maidenz explore Episodes 1 through 3 of Sunrise's obscure 1999 psychological horror mecha anime "Betterman". After trying to make sense of Bottom's World's strange geometries, the lineage to Neon Genesis Evangelion, Miyako's potential autism, the uncomfortable shades of bondage in the presentation of the Manage Machine and whether plankton that can erase your mind are actually real, the Media Maidens holler about the appropriate social engagement with crash test dummies in a service work environment. It's gonna be a wild ride folks. Buckle up.

At one point in this episode Madiha says something along the lines of "Code Geass is the template for your twee shoujo bullshit mecha shit."

We're sorry. We're trying to remove it.

As part of our atonement, here's the rest of the podcast: For Honor is cool when you can connect to more than one match in a row; heartbreaking encounter with a ww2 flash game; Dark Souls 3, its more Dark Souls I guess; Esther spends a Night In The Woods!; relationships to twee furry things; unhealthy behavior towards games giving you An Emotion; THE YEAR OF HORNY; Nights of Azure, and a brief, queerbaity introduction to Gust Horny; Esther enters the GACHA GAOL with PUZZLE & DRAGONS (but first a brief detour into Fire Emblem again); underused settings that the Media Maidenz wanna see more of, like 60s steampunk scooby doo; guilty pleasures, also known as Madiha's Neptunia Problem; what the fuck even is Betterman???? and why are we talking about it?????????; Gearbox Software give us the borderlands car.

Our most crisp and beautiful audio quality yet produces a tight 100 minutes many of which saw Dennis near death with heatstroke.

Topics in this death defying episode include: Churchill in WW1 (for some reason); back at it again with Brigador (for the last time we promise); DENNIS' TERRIBLE TERRIBLE GACHA PROBLEMS; Terra Battle did Fire Emblem Heroes already and nobody noticed; Esther designs the greatest gacha game ever imagined and what the fuck is up with Megaman Star Force; alien thong ladies and infuriatingly glacial story progression in Xenoblade Chronicles X; Esther commands some tanks!!!; thoughts on Character Creation Systems and Voice Acting.

This one's a bit rough lads. Dennis was basically dead? And Esther is a JRPG plot device character with amnesia.

However, Vore is 0.00001% of the content and that is a triumph.

Now, for the actual content: The Mobile Gaming Ecosystem is a trainwreck mess; Esther rogued some likes in Caves of Qud and bought the wrong thing from the cash shop in Let It Die; tanks for the memories in BRIGADOR, a story-rich narrative gaming experience; only the most 2007 Touhou Project cuts will suffice for Forbidden Scrollery; Todd Howard's Mean Skyrim Machine, the NINTENDO SWITCH; the girls put on their author hats on trans representation; the Media Maidenz get warlike with WAR THUNDER and gripe about scout matchmaking in World of Tanks; Dennis is mad about Dunkirk; and finally, Gust is ready to queerbait the PC! 2017 is already looking...somewhere.
