Far Cry 2
Oh right, that was the episode they all claimed it was terrible and ruined for talking about a topic for 90 straight seconds.
If I'm thinking of the right episode, I'm pretty sure they called it the "worst".
Didn't Chris fart while saying something insightful at some point?
You mean that episode where Nick Breckon couldn't be there?
Nick Breckon was the fart.
Someone hypothesised a thing and someone else replied "gross".
Somebody said 'bespoke'.
I think it must have been a later episode because I distinctly recall Sean getting annoyed at a joke.
Around the time this was a thing?
Anyone remember when this thread was a useful resource?
I'm laughing, that's kinda useful.
Yeah, remember this useful gem from 2010?
Which episode did Jake say "Worst!" in again?
This was a legitimate request :c
Moment the guy gets a massive portrait, he starts having "standards."
Which episode had Nick start yelling about "ten vitality sensors?"
That was the one with the nightmarish future of games.
Yup, episode 31, The Future of Games.
(The first episode I listened to! You never forget your first.)
This is the only thread I can think of to pose this question: should we have a "explaining Idle Thumbs in-jokes" thread? If there was just an influx of new listeners, I would have for them to be confused about wizards, Far Cry 2, Dishonored, Lords and gold game cool blum.
One of the most confusing in fact is "grenade roll down a hill". If I recall, the story behind that phrase is actually never on the podcast. Threw me for a loop
It was in one of the live panel recordings they did, which I'm pretty sure is actually on the feed. PAX three years ago, I wanna say?
But three years ago is a long time anyway so who even remembers.
If you mean Sean's Farcry story, then he was referring to the joke after they had already said it a bunch on the podcast. The actual origin of the phrase doesnt seem to be anywhere.
Oh you might be right. There was definitely a grenade rolling down a hill in Sean's FC2 story, though, which is as good an origin as any.
