Last week on the TOVG Podcast, we recount the Konami takedown experience, the lasting appeal of WoW, and the kickstarting appeal of Igivania: http://www.thatonevideogamer.com/category/podcasts/tovg-podcast/
In sum: Konami couldn’t properly take down my video because they had provided no explanation why they would need to take down my video. YouTube stepped in for the very first time and said “dude, stop.” Polygon’s lawyer thinks I’m in the clear. There were Konami games here. They’re gone now.
This video uses the tracks “Twisted” and “Highlight Reel” from incompitech.org.
Last week on the podcast, we talked about Nintendo theme parks, Samus hugs, mod bans, and five nights four: http://www.thatonevideogamer.com/featured/the-tovg-podcast-48-nintendoland/

Shoggoths, tentacles and sanity meters. Let’s see how much Lovecraft there is in Bloodborne!
Warning: this video spoils pretty much everything. Almost all the endings, optional bosses, monsters, item descriptions. Everything.
A free anthology of Lovecraft stories can be found here. I reccomend starting with Call of Cthulhu, then Innsmouth, then the Mountains of Madness: http://gutenberg.net.au/ebooks06/0600031h.html

Last week on the TOVG podcast, we eschewed newstalk so that we could just chit-chat about games casually. Which devolved into arguing about which Fallout is the best Fallout, of course:
Do you like hurting other people?
