Designer Notes 45: Rami Ismail
Babou replied to Soren Johnson's topic in Designer Notes EpisodesGreat episode, thanks for sharing! Maybe I missed something, but I didn't feel this way at all. He was quite open and honest about the differences in personality between himself and JW. What he described was a partnership that worked because of how different the two of them are. I think this level of awareness and honesty about yourself plus those you work with is extremely important, and can be very helpful when communicating and collaborating. Nothing I heard seemed unfair, and I feel he did a good job of expressing his perspective while still being respectful.
Quitter's Club: Don't be ashamed to quit the game.
Babou replied to Tanukitsune's topic in Video GamingI've found that as I get older I have less patience for any form of media that wastes my time. If I feel a creator of a work is becoming too self indulgent, or has lost the thread, I stop right there and walk away. I think there is nothing wrong with walking away from something that holds no value to the viewer/reader/player/listener. Strangely, I somehow managed to finish the initial story arc of Destiny, and in a way I'm kinda glad. The story and narrative is on a level of such hot garbage as to be awe inspiring in a way... and hilarious. If you've not had the chance to witness the sheer majesty of it's final cinematic (for the arc) I suggest watching a video of it. And that speech intended to inspire, what a stunning piece of horrendous dialogue. I haven't played Destiny since.

What happened to Sean on Idle Thumbs?
Babou replied to ThatguyPhil's topic in Idle BanterI really enjoy Idle Thumbs for the balance of goofy bullshit with really thoughtful conversations. It's for this reason that it's my favourite podcast. This is also why I really enjoyed episodes where Sean was involved, as I feel he adds a great balance of goofy while also being able to articulate an introspective view in a very thoughtful manner. I have no intention of telling others what to do, but I personally would love to see Sean as a guest when others can't make it.
