I'd be surprised if Jewish or Israeli wasn't a category on Tiava. That site is like the a-z of fetishes.

Yeah, that joke's a little out of hand, Bboy. Poor taste, sir. Poor taste.

Edit: As for you Fitch, you shouldn't take anything said on this forum with any level of seriousness. You know what they say about "vocal minorities," right? Haters gonna hate. And for what it's worth, as much as your conversations tend to derail things, you make the podcast infinitely more interesting and humorous to listen to. The next time I have to listen to a seminar on Sierra games without so much as a joke in between to break up the pace, I'm gonna have to wish death upon myself. :lol:

I am a bit of a porn connoisseur, but I'm not insane enough to comment on videos or have actual accounts anywhere, nor am I insane enough to pay for porn. If I wanted specific things to happen badly enough to pay I'd just go out there and find the chicks myself and actually fuck them myself.

Really though, you answered your own question, in a way: There are dudes who pay for porn accounts and comment and rate videos and shit like that. They'd pay for it, and there is plenty of stuff out there that doesn't exist in large amounts already. Some people want skinny hirsute redhead lesbians, and the half dozen videos they can find aren't enough. Normal porn viewers find themselves thinking "wish there was more of that stuff. oh well.", but lots of people aren't normal.

There are enough people out there LiQuid that do like chicks with big noses, and would help fund a porn kick starter for more "jewish-looking girl" porn. Then you would have more for free porn so you can wank all you want to those big nosed porn starlets. Why is this a problem for your frugal, judgemental ass?

Kickstarter talk was really boring but maybe that's because I've grown weary of hearing people from the internet talking about that so much for the past couple months.

The LovePlus talk was actually fairly interesting especially the discussion about the possible reasons why dating sims never have made it over to North America and if they would even sell or not. The talk of how some of the commercialization/tie ins to the game worked was interesting as well. Also I remember reading about Katawa Shoujo somewhere on the internet, (I think it was rockpapershotgun) it sounded interesting in an academic sense. Specifically having your cast of characters all be physically disabled in some fashion or another is kind of fascinating for a game or just a story in general. Assuming they treat the subject with respect (and not just playing to some fetish) it could make for an inventive if not interesting story. I would think it'd be more the former than the latter as I imagine subject matter like that would be hard to convey in a serious sense (especially in the wrapper of a dating sim) or in trying to play down the pity reponse from the reader/viewer/player as I imagine that could distract too much from any character development.

FFXIII talk was such a short tangent that I'm curious why it was in the show notes.

Oh and what was kind of weird, Brock kind of filled in for Adam although less entertaining probably because Adam seems to be playing it up more.

Also, Ray was awesome! Much more entertaining and interesting episode than the 3 man shows the past couple weeks.

I hear this. Yeah, Kickstarter is allowing for some interesting things to happen. I get it. But after 10+ episodes straight of kickstarter stuff, it's gets kinda boring.

Yes that's why I say if it was played straight, I have not played the game or seen anything about it aside from that article which I can't remember so I don't know if it does that or not. Also, I suppose it may not have been clear but I was talking in the hypothetical about a story where the main characters are all physically disabled and my belief that it would be a challenging story to create if played straight.

My method of dealing with Kickstarter:

1. See interesting thing.
2. Wait for commercial release.
3. Buy!

We can only imagine what happens to that meter when a project is fully funded.

I just wish there was some grander repercussion for it. Instead of an awkward pause someone needs to just like slap him in the face real fast. Not like a hard, viscous cut, but just like a Three Stooges style whack across the face. Something nice and audible for the podcast mics.

Oh, c'mon, it's not that bad. I've just watched a lot of porn over the years. I was fat, socially awkward teenager with a computer in my bedroom, and while my porn viewing slowed down when I learned to be less of a socially awkward fucktard, it still continued, cause I am still a dude. Watch enough of anything and you start to pick up on certain aspects of it. I mean, if you listen to enough music you'll start to learn about music, watch enough movies and you'll pick up on different aspects of film making. I've just watched lots of porn.

Stop the hipster loop you're in Olympia. I know, I've been there. I used to live in Portland, and now I live in Brooklyn. So in a way, I'm still there. You hate on things and people that are pretentious, yet, you have a certain set of things you can't let go without everyone knowing your thoughts on. Forget it. Life is too short dealing with that crap.
