Boss Syndrome Podcast #41 - Gamers debunking anti gaming studies


Mp3 Download

This week - A study comes out claiming that video games can cause sexism, but the study has more holes in it than a chain-link fence. Also we cover the art of grandstanding when giving to charity for the sake of virtue, and is the Switch more powerful than the Ipad? Also we talk about the Power Rangers movie and other things.

Boss Plays - Bloodborne: Blood starved BS


So, I have some bad news and some good news.

The Bad:  My laptop that I have been using for streaming and recording gaming footage, is dead. I attempted to take Windows 10 off of the laptop to backdate to Windows 8, and that resulted in some form of catastrophic error that won't allow the computer to even boot. I could fix it, but that laptop was a hand-me-down, and both of my laptops were brand new in 2012.  Needless to say, it's time for an upgrade.

The Good:  My computer parts, according to FedEX shipping calculations, will be here in two days. So my i5 processor, 16gig ram filled, why the hell is this graphics card so expensive computer will be constructed by the beginning of this new week. And I will demonstrate the power of this fully operational battle station by the end of the week.

So in the meantime, enjoy this Let's Play of Bloodborne, and my one-man-war on the Blood Starved Beast.

Spiracy's Big Haul - Switchmas is here!!


I know you've been probably hit with multiple Switch unboxing videos, reviews, news, whatever. So I'm not going to bore you with details. This is pretty much your standard unboxing vid in which i do a size comparison with the Vita, and I take a look at the interior art of the game cases, and the size of the cartridges as well.

I'm currently playing through Breath of the Wild, and to be honest, it's a bit overwhelming in terms of trying to figure out what to do first. The first Shrine I encountered is apparently not available yet, so I'm going to figure out what's going on with that, soon. In the meantime, thanks for checking out the video.

GDC slides, Political Correctness and why your game is crap.

So I've had the pleasure of looking through the highlights of some of the notorious GDC slides of this year, and much like the previous year's slides, this is definitely something....

I'm going to show you a few of these slides and express my discontent at the opinions presented.

 Without further ado.. let's get it on!
