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

December 14, 2019  

I got told by the birds and the little kid and everyone, that I would be fucked up if I went to my dad's house.

So I said "OK, then I'm going to my dad's house and I dare you to fuck with me."

Topics include: Christmas creep; Madiha played Pathologic 2!; reimagining of a mid 2000s first person adventure-survival game; Madiha's kind of game?; the bachelor is a dick; accidentally punched a man to death; this is probably gonna make everything WORSE if I do this; the kids are alright; weirdly racialized man; I found a huge knife, but if I used it, it'd create more problems; brief aside about CHOICES THAT MATTER; Esther played the cygames pinball game, WORLD FLIPPER, so very brief gacha gaol; they're not doing a granblue, so Japanese only!; bring Vira to Dragalia Lost; there's not any balls; flipping the characters around; excited for Arknights?; Madiha's good on gacha games, but she'll give it a chance!; Esther will also give it a chance; tower defense RPG gacha, surprisingly not horny (for now); brief aside about the Azur Lane hentai loading screen controversy; Madiha goes on a rant about freedom of speech being false; Esther beat DEATH STRANDING; Kojima is the Neil Breen of Video Games; the correct way to look at your phone; Death Stranding Spoilers from 1:10:00-1:17:35; Madiha played The Hunter: Call of the Wild!; as a tacticlol enthusiast, Madiha is into hunting (in video games); Hunting has purpose and it is fine and acceptable for people to hunt; this game was made by the Just Cause people; unfortunately, it does not satisfy all of Madiha's hardware fetishes; despite this, it's a fun, subdued, pure hunting experience with tracking, shooting, trapping and it's strangely satisfying.

Millions of dollars have gone into saying the stupidest shit I have ever seen and heard and I'm down for it.

Topics: Madiha's tail is bushy; PSA: We're sick of Fire Emblem Three Houses; Esther is a normie; we talk about Death Stranding from like 12:00-44:00, read an article or something if you want someone who is thinking too hard about this game, we're only hype; Madiha CANNOT become the Emperor of Rome in IMPERATOR: ROME; the tutorial is still not good; clicking the gender equality button; the ballad of Apullia Maxima, the mommy legion commander; its time for the FILM MAIDENZ to talk about some classic cinema! Madiha and Esther watched Andrei Tarkovsky's SOLARIS; high concept at 1:20:00, but basically spoilers until like 2:00:00; we tell Madiha "ok boomer."

The girls lose their Media Maidenhood and become Media Succubi as we celebrate the most lurid holiday on the calendar...it's hornyween!

Join us for a look at a special franchise that is near and dear to Madiha's heart, and may have become special to Esther too. We're looking at the crossover video game gijinka sensation that sweeped from Japan to America in the early 2010s and has since...stopped sweeping much at all! We're going over the history, the myth, the legends, and the fanservice.

It's our Choujigen Game Neptune/Hyperdimension Neptunia podcast!

No more notes, just listen to it.

As much as I want to fleece everyone for as much money as possible, we need to give them SOMETHING. What I'm coming at them with is COMMON HEADS.

Transmediacrity Game Jam is back. We break our partnership with Jodd Drogg games to bring you new exclusives, worked collaboratively, with partners who don't know what they are making, because they probably wouldn't like it if they knew the entirety of our dark, ribald designs from the get-go. In the spirit of hornyween, we've made some decadent and enticing new games with YOUR submissions, including the following:

-Exquisite Corpse

-Poppin' Feet

-Touhou (But Fucked Up)

-Wayne Gretzky's War In The North
