    German tutorial by Hitler. Wuah, really funny.
    Expected such a “joke” maybe from some liberal-bashing, right-wing, mid-west “comedian”, but not from you guys.

    Germany = Hitler,Nazi,trains on time,autobahn.
    France = Red wine,cheese,baguette.
    England = Bad weather,worse food,funny accent.

    You DID NOT hurt “my feelings”, ok?
    But please think before you speak, if you sound stupid / lame / not funny / NOT witty or inventive.

    Oh yeah, and please ask me if “.de”-top level domain is Denmark.

    On the subject of drivers, the Italians are the most insane that I’ve ever encountered, the second being the people in Paris.

    Psychonauts was really a terrible game. From long load times to pointless quests and redundant boring gameplay, that game just wasn’t any fun. Collecting stuff in the game was also pointless.

    Sure it had some funny bits in it, but a couple of funny lines doesn’t equate to fun gameplay.

    Same goes for Brutal Legend: I’m not a fan of heavy Metal and yet the music didn’t bother me. I’m also not a fan of jack black and I think he did a really good job. But man, this game is TERRIBLE.

    It’s a shame because tim shaffer seems to be such a great guy and everyone is rooting for him.

    But just like Psychonauts, it is OVERRATED (game critics are to blame) and it will be another commercial failure.

    i just might take the advice on seeking out girls now that Modern Warfare 2 is out. I’m not playing it, because I’m a broke college guy… although I guess that means I can’t afford a date, either, damn it! 🙁

    I’ve never played Psychonaughts, I picked it up on XBL today and it’s amazing, great call guys.

    Nice that Brock came back again.

    It also ,makes me feel a little better for listening to something like this when it has a bodyguard of a stripper in it.

    It can’t be an easy job, I mean I’d be to distracted by uh… other things… to be able to actually, you know, bodyguard.

    I just want more venture bros podcasting.

  8. stobenau says:

    Dude, I’m sure Brock is a good person and all, but he sucks the life out of this podcast. All of that DSM-IV stuff? Even listening to someone who actually knows about the details of mental illness, i.e. a psychiatrist, is going to be boring when discussing it. It’s clinical. Listening to an uninteresting speaker talking about something he is not versed in that is already a flat topic, well, why not just start reading the phone book?

    Please don’t give him my IP address or anything…please?

    Talking about board games from the simple to the crazy complex, but does anybody from 20 something generation play card games anymore? I’m 27 and I love getting together and just playing some Cribbage or some Spades over a beer. Is this a gone past time?

    “Prince of Persia movie trailer. Starring Ryan Scott, Karen Chu, Andrew Fitch, Ryan Higgins, and Brock Sager.”

    see what I thought.

  13. Kris O says:

    Is the nasty MMO story that Brock was trying to think of that infamous AoC moderator cyber thing that GFW radio did the dramatic reading of? It kind of sounded like that might be what he was thinking of. Also Brock is an awesome sub for Mike.

    Hells Yeah! I love me some Brock!
