Super Arrogant Bros: Let’s Talk About Gaming Journalism Again

Stev and I tend to speak to those who understand that we have some fundamental problems with gaming journalism with the worst offenders being Kotaku, Polygon and One Angry Gamer and why is that?

Say what you want to about the likes of Tim Sweeney but, the way the likes of Kotaku misrepresented what Tim said about politics in video games is a symptom of what’s wrong with people who wish to be taken seriously in their journalism. So here we are again almost five years since GamerGate.

And if Super Mario Bros is for Commies, what are the other big platformers? Totally serious discussion there, friends.

What do you think of the direction of gaming journalism? Let us know in the comments!

Super Arrogant Bros: The Sonic the Hedgehog Movie

It’s finally here! What was going to be a tremendous dumpster fire turned out to be not so bad. At least for Dirk that is.

Before getting into the movie, we also give our thoughts on random number generators in gaming and how they have been used for the better or worse in gaming.

What are your thoughts on the new Sonic movie? What are your thoughts on RNG? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!

Java Fog: Wild West of the Internet ft. Kirk Wilcox

A collaboration I have been particularly excited for! I’m happy to present the conversation I had with a good friend of the show, Kirk Wilcox. Kirk goes at least as far back as I do with the internet and was the co-founder of the satirical website, jesusishitler.net and we’re also very happy to present to you some unread hate mail he has not gone over until now.

For this episode, we go over the question on if people like us look back at the internet and its humor with rose-tinted glasses and what it was like to try to break through online from Maddox’s website to making flash animations on Newgrounds.

Be sure to follow Kirk on YouTube, Twitter and Twitch.

Super Arrogant Bros: When Should an Online Game Die?

Despite the intentions of Bioware to fix Anthem, it seems that we simply do not have a real demand for a game that is very dead at this point. In fact, most of us would rather have a good Knights of the Old Republic or Dragon Age game.

This got us thinking, when should an online game die? What’s keeping games like Team Fortress 2 doing so well after 12 years?

What do you think? Let us know in the comments!

Super Arrogant Bros: Warcraft 3 Refunded

This episode might be a tougher one for Dirk as he has been excited for Warcraft 3 Reforged ever since it was announced. He pre-ordered the game only refund the pre-order since the Hong Kong controversy. The game is out now and how did it turn out? Well, it looks like we have a dumpster fire.

Broken promises, downgrades, banning forum players and refusing refunds? Blizzard, you’re not the company that people loved.
