Easy Allies Podcast - Official Discussion Thread

  • I've been watching a podcast led by Bosman for... I don't know how many years, but since day one. Not every opening bit has been a winner but I've always appreciated them in some capacity. I just... can't stand Pro Strats. Reading through the comment section shows I'm not alone but this is the first time I've ever started to consider skipping the opening segment. Maybe I'm just getting grumpy with old age or maybe this segment is a real stinker, I'm not sure.

  • I laughed this week because the pro strat was clearly a callback and Brandon didn't get it.

  • It's a bit, which is as we all know, a Bosman special and I'll never fault him for having his fun.
    That being said this second week showed how weak it can be. The first time everyone seemed in to it, but this week just had Brandon with no real interest from the others.

    I still miss the old opening bit from the GT days. It was nice and simple, just a weird question.

    We should make a petition to bring it back

  • @a7x458 Pretty sure Bosman would say no immediately to that.

  • Well, that love and respect question about Sea of Thieves blowing up views on Twitch certainly hasn't aged well in a few days since recording the podcast. It's already slumped to 8k viewers. Unless pirates only come out at night? I dunno.

    @SabotageTheTruth It just fluctuates based on what popular streamer is on at what time, like an hour ago it was at 11k and now it's at 36k because summit1g started playing, I've seen a few people I'm following playing later in the day(PT) too. It also dipped because of the RE2 release, it's the hot thing to stream right now.

  • Favorite podcast opening segment as voted on the facebook eza fan group.


    What's your favorite?

  • @germanscientist Beastie Boys rap needs some more love, that was one of my favorites.

  • @germanscientist I think that poll is pretty spot on.

  • I really, really love Kyle.

    I reeeeally hate Pro Strats. I'm sorry. :(

    But I can't believe Word of the Day is so low on that poll! Word of the Day was great.

  • #150 was a super joyful episode. Loved the Gaming Game, we need to see this returning every now and then. And man, watching happy Bloodworth during the halftime just filled me with positive thoughts. :)

  • @sentinel-beach I think Bloodworth killed it on this weeks podcast. Insight after insight as well extracting thoughts from Bosman, which rarely happens normally as far as I can remember.

  • The Gaming Game is back! Can't get enough of this segment. Also, I can't believe how much I missed Ian on the podcast, it's comforting having him back.

  • Really enjoyed Jones and Brad opening up about the EA Play behind-the-scenes reality, there was some real frustration and bewilderment there.

  • Looks like some of the submissions for the Glinny's Cauldron game jam are spam submissions from people just trying to get their game out there. I was confused playing it when the games weren't so bad. Maybe 2-3 of the 7 so far aren't actually for Glinny's Cauldron.

    Paragon 2 was ridiculously funny but I got stumped on the Mario Odyssey wall platforming with the duck. I had to give up.

    EDIT: Just played "Ghost Ranch" it was surprisingly good but that damn spike section was brutal. I beat both bosses. Not sure if nothing happening is the abrupt ending?

    EDIT 2: I beat "Swordcery by SWMedia. This game made me laugh out loud multiple times with the highlight being Mountain Dew and Skeezer. 10/10

  • I really like the guy in the middle - he is really cool and cute. Would like to chat with him in internet.

  • Corrections at the end has to be a bit, right?

  • Trying out Corrections at the end is genuine. His comment in the latest podcast about "everyone seeming to agree it works" is a bit.

  • Just wanted to share how heartwarming it is to me, personally, that you are in any way associated with SOS villages.

    Today is the 49th anniversary of when my mother and her 4 just orphaned siblings were left at the care of one of these villages. At that time, it was a pioneer program, and the first one in the country(Portugal).

    Both my parents grew up without parents of their own, for different reasons and under different circumstances.
    My mother grew up under the care of a lady that I consider to be my actual grandmother. She came from an isolated village in the middle of the mountains and grew up and went to school in the capital thanks to these villages.

    She is a successful and well-adjusted human being and I'd have to say that having a caring foster parent is a big part of that.

    My father, on the other hand, grew up in an orphanage, was beaten and berated, and ultimately ran away to grow up in the streets with his kid brother. My father has never and will never shake the psychological issues that came from these experiences. He is successful IN SPITE of these traumas, but a deeply haunted and flawed person. A father of 3 and grandfather of 6.

    I just want to stress that one should never underestimate the value of having someone to call mom or dad, someone who is there for us, not just an employee taking care of hundreds, but an adult, in a house, that cooks for you, teaches you how to be a good person, and most importantly, that loves you.

    This is what SOS Villages provided for my mother.
