Episode 96 All Corporations Are Pretty Much Evil

Episode 96 All Corporations Are Pretty Much Evil

We discuss why Sony Suite will be Awesome. Why Xbox 360 sells a lot while its a crappy console. - "its just cheaper, thats why everyone likes it" - Why Jordan is wrong all the time and why Steve Jobs was an evil corporative oligarch.

(Jordan)  Why Sony are a terrible company, without a SINGLE product I could recommend, why Sony Suite has taken YEARS to plop out, and STILL boasts a whopping *ten* games,  the full list of which can be seen here

WOW, I can play Kula World again?  RADICAL dude!

Why the Xbox 360 has several Playstation smashing features (and I say that as someone who cant stand Microsoft, or the Xbox, a unproud PS3 owner) - "better online gaming service, came out earlier, offers identical graphics (in the real world), grabbed most exclusive games from silly sony AND on top of this, it IS cheaper! -

Why I'm wrong less often than I'm right, and how Steve Jobs loved his job, worked tirelessly since the 1970's to found a company, all to achieve, and wildly succeed his dreams, while parasitical companies tried to "snatch and grab".

Large game developers, with legions of mindless drones churning out crap vs small, dedicated teams of friends, working passionately to create a masterpiece - which do you prefer?

Star Wars.... George Lucas does it again, where it=ruins timeless movies by yet further edits a decade after release....

But dont worry kids!  You can still find "The Good Version" of the movies on a twenty year old VHS tape, bought secondhand!  Sure beats "The Crap Version" in Good Quality! :-)

Steve Jobs resigns, due to a) he's gravely ill, deathly thin and about to die soon or b) like Perfect Cell, he's decided the Z Fighters are unworthy of his time, so he's decided to kick back, spit out a few Cell Jr's from his stinger/sucker thing, and watch as each Steve Jr effortlessly destroys HP, Dell, Samsung, HTC, Motorola....

Which do YOU believe?

RAZR Gaming Laptop, 3DS sales - was a 3D orientated console a bad idea?, and the shocking revelation that SOME people think your children should suffer through pens on paper at school, which Jordan thinks is frankly Un-New Zealand-ican, iPads for all! (and knockoff tablets, Apple laptops, further knockoff laptops too)

HP kills Palm, currently the worlds largest PC seller seriously trying to sell their PC business, money quote:

“Consumers are changing the use of their PC,” HP CEO Leo Apotheker said. “The tablet effect is real and sales of the TouchPad are not meeting our expectations. The velocity of change in the personal device marketplace continues to increase as the competitive landscape is growing increasingly more complex especially around the personal computing arena,” he continued. He then repeated, “the tablet effect is real”.

Apple continues to dominate the world.

Playstation Vita, Sony's desperate attempt to make a decent product : it cant record HD video, you know, like every iPod Touch, iPhone, Android smartphone... nice one Sony, because VGA video in 2011...sorry, its delayed till *2012*, thats gonna look realllllll good on YouTube and our beautiful *Samsung* televisions....

Episode 87 Toby and Javier will kill Jordan

Further 3DS failure talk (guess who typed this...), PS Vita delayed EIGHT FURTHER MONTHS (according to a BestBuy Canada order leak) : is this "Sony looking out us, the poor consumer, Uncle Sony knows his nephews and nieces are suffering the recession....Uncy Sony is patiently waiting for unicorns and Happy Times before releasing this thing..." as Javier and Toby believe, or, in Jordans opinion, "its a colossal error that Only Sony (tm Jordan Wyatt) could pull off, their entire production line depending on women who become pregnant with each Vita, raise it to gestation inside their swelling belly, before having a C Section delivery, straight to your local....well..."Best Buy Canada"..."

In other words, Sony up to their usual incompetent tricks.

Sons of the PatriotCast - No More Nanomachines

Hello Metal Gear Solid PatriotCast fans! Say hello before you have to say goodbye to your number one Metal Gear Solid fan podcast, as this episode marks the second of the last four episodes (for this version of the podcast anyway)! On this show we start off by interrogating the only fan who took me up on the offer of being on the show. Oh well, in two weeks it won't be a problem anymore. We also talk about, or rather 'debated' whether a game with Liquid Snake as the main protagonist would be a good thing or whether it would be an abomination. :) Oh and must apologise to Mr. Donnie Bain, I incorrectly siad that he told me he'd be on the shoe this week, in actual fact he specifically told me he WOULDN'T be on the show, so again, I apologise to him. That's all from me for now, I hope as many people as possible take me up on the offer I make at the end of the show and I'll see you all next week!

Sons of the PatriotCast - Return of the Sons

Hello Metal Gear Solid PatriotCast fans! Say hello before you have to say goodbye to your number one Metal Gear Solid fan podcast, as this episode marks the beginning of the end (for this version of the podcast anyway)! On this show we address the listener mail we received a number of weeks ago, we interrogate two fans and we talk about the technology of the MGS universe (and no, we didn't forget nanomachines...). As you will hear when you listen to the podcast, all manner of things went awry as we recorded this episode, but I'm afraid there was little that I could do in post-production, as you'll hear me explain. I hope you all enjoy this bumper episode, it should take quite a while for you to listen to! :) That's all from me for now, I hope as many people as possible take me up on the offer I make at the end of the show and I'll see you all next week!

PatriotCast - Episode 64

Hello PatriotCast fans and welcome to the description for your number one Metal Gear Solid podcast that's made by the fans! This week's episode starts of with a lenghty discussion about the NGP/PSP2 and we conclusively prove that the world will end in 2012, as Jordan is actually positive about it. Shock horror! :) We also discuss another two theme songs (turns out this takes longer than we thought it would). :) This week's co-hosts were the Misters Soma Biro, Javier Bustamante, Matt Pistritto and Jordan Wyatt, in alphabetical order. Unfortunately due to time restraints in effect upon certain co-hosts this is not the bumper edition that was promised last week but it is none-the-less enjoyable and is the same length as a normal episode, so you're not losing out on anything. :) Oh, and a special shout-out to Ralph Cardwell who unfortunately couldn't join us this week because of technical difficulties with Skype. :( We hope you can make it next week Ralph. :) To all the rest of you out there, be sure to tune in to this episode and also be sure to find us on Twitter (@mgspod), Facebook (type in "PatriotCast in the search bar and ignore any white supremecy groups) and on our forum ( Please rate us on iTunes and send any feedback to "" and that should just about do it. :)

PatriotCast - Episode 63

Welcome PatriotCast fans to episode 63 of your no. 1 Metal Gear Solid fan podcast! This weeks episode is unfortunately incomplete, as you'll see when you listen to it. Due to a recording error that went unnoticed the last half hour of the podcast was not recorded. :( Don't despair however! We fully intend to re-record it next week and then release the next one as bumper edition. This weeks episode is slightly shorther than usual however but we do have a number of highlights, including a new co-host by the name of Ralph Cardwell and a (shorter than planned) discussion on the theme songs (read: the ones with words in them) of the franchise. We hope you enjoy the show and we apologise for the delay and shorter than usual episode, we'll make up for it next week! :) Be sure to tune in to this episode and also be sure to find us on Twitter (@mgspod), Facebook (type in "PatriotCast in the search bar and ignore any white supremecy groups) and on our forum ( Please rate us on iTunes and send any feedback to "".

PatriotCast - Episode 62

​Battle for Motion Control.


​A couple of weeks ago analysts announced that Kinect outsold Playstation Move by a ratio of 5 to 1. This news plus the news of Wii games selling 35 million units filled me with curiosity to research as to why in the Battle for Motion Controls, (referred from now on in this article as MC) Sony’s peripheral is not doing as well.

In today’s gaming world MC is substandard, but multiple companies are implementing MC into their products, Wii, Kinect, Move, Android phones, iPhones, iPad and tablets all use it. However the gaming industry is currently driven by the video game giants Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft, which all came into the field with different characteristics. The Wii MC system has an infrared recognition and accelerometers, which offered first real motion controlled gaming. PS Move combines a complex system of accelerometers, gyroscopes and magnetic sensors to track movements in real time and in three dimensions; plus a glowing ball that is tracked by the Playstation eye. The Kinect utilizes a high tech combo of cameras that position the player in three dimensional spaces and recognizes depth perspective. Smartphones and tablets use similar technologies and are taking the gaming industry by storm as well.

​It seems however that many core gamers are not so pleased with MC gaming and game developers are not ready to take the plunge into full MC gaming.

​Video game developers are usually weary of new peripherals, as time has told. This “wonder” interfacing toys proof to be more fanfare and hype than real innovation in gaming. However this new generation has broken through a little stronger and has made an important part of the public, the “casual” gamer. The impending question is what would make MC a solid standard in gaming. Consider this, suppose next generation of consoles came with MCs only. This means no more eight button joypads, no more charge times (in some cases) and no more learning curve on “oh what’s the run button again?” Take Nintendo for example; would anyone be surprised if the next home console they make comes out with MCs? Third party developers should also learn to take a little more risks, if anyone should it’s them. They should support the companies that make the consoles, the ones that basically employ them. Gearing towards this new technology should be a goal and a learning experience for all of them. Integrating MCs into mainstream games would also help the technology to move forward, as well as making it an in-game option to let players choose how they want to take on a game.

The only question is, where is this technology going? The future is not certain, but it seems this time around they are doing it right. Maybe in the future there would be even more user friendly interfaces such as lightweight gloves with special sensors, head bands, wristbands, etcetera. Console developers should allow more independently developed software; same way Apple does with games like Angry Birds, Tiny Wings or Fruit Ninja. Sony has taken a step into that with the announcement of software that would allow users to create their own move applications. Imagine not only playing great games but making one yourself like one that you might want to share with the world and maybe make some cash. In this battle there is no winner yet but it seems we all might have a common goal.

Javier Bustamante, The Patriotcast.
