    Great show, guys! And as always, Jaffe had some interesting points. You are correct that it’s mainly Germany that’s the problem with the rating system in Europe – But we’re working on excluding them to fix that! ;)

    Seriously, I can see how the European market must be frustrating to a developer, but it is equally annoying to the EU users who get screwed again and again by Sony – well at least those of us who can handle English.

    I wish they would just stop trying to localise a lot of the stuff and just let us buy the content we want without geolocking and all the other BS that forces us to use multiple accounts, IP proxies etc.

    Josh…  I love this banner.  So good.  so good.  I laughed out loud when I saw it.  
    Oh and why is it that when I start to rock out your opening song Glenn has to start talking and ruin my rocking out?  

    • http://psnation.org Josh

      Thank you sir, I’m quite proud of this banner. I was laughing while making it.

        What program did you use to create that banner? And sorry for all of that bad luck bro.

          I do them all in Photoshop.  The original picture of the theater marquee only had a small bit of the brick wall on either side so I had to expand it on my own, then add in the titles, the underoos kid and Jaffe’s head. 

          It’s fun but I usually run into that problem with a background not wide enough and I end up having to expand it to the left or right which can be a pain at times..

            Is this site also powered by WordPress? Banner links go in a wp-content folder, which is common in WordPress.

          • http://psnation.org Josh

            yup

          • http://techmansworld.blogspot.com MHazell

            I thought is was powered by Monkeys and Doughnuts =)

    I don’t know if you know this yet, but in the last of us trailer, the guy at the start is just killing another regular dude, bludgeoning him to death. That’s why I found it freaky when the teenager so casually whipped out a knife. Then again, Naughty Dog might just take the Uncharted approach and make mass murder seem like its OK. :P (although I hope they don’t…)

    Excellent show, I’m loving the interviews. :D

    Great podcast this week.  Man can Jaffe talk.  That guy never really stopped talking.

    Not sure all the VGA hate was warranted, though.  I watched it but had very low expectations.  I knew going in it was less than respectable but still enjoyed the previews and sneak peaks of what’s to come.  Being upset that there wasn’t enough (or any for that matter) actual gameplay footage of these new games should not have been much of a surprise either.  They were mostly just announcement videos.  After a year of solid sequels and three-quels I was just excited to hear about some new IPs like The Last of Us.  Finding out that Naughty Dog was attached to it made it all the better.  I’ll continue to watch next year but also do what I’ve done for this past year – record it and FF through the BS.

      I was just reacting to what Glenn told me about it but come on, it’s supposed to be an Awards Show.  Whoop de freakin’ doo they premiere a bunch of game trailers… that I can see on the internet ,literally, five minutes later.  I don’t have to watch the show at all to see these trailers.  Now, if you gave out actual awards and allowed real acceptance speeches for all of them, I’d have a compelling reason to watch.

      I just get annoyed that this has become the de facto Video Game Awards show, red carpet, celebrities and all and the awards seem to be even less than an afterthought.  IMO this actually hurts what little credibility the Video Game Industry has.  They had a chance to take something that people look down on and elevate it a bit.  Highlight great technical achievements, great storytelling, great developers, etc. and instead they turned it into a two hour series of commercials and bad skits.

      Always enjoyable to hear Jaffe’s mind leaking out.

      The VGA’s seem to just be a program created to sell,video game commercial slots, and show off the most selling games.  Which is fine really, but I just wish they would list it as so.  “Highest selling shooter of 2011″ and create more valid awards.  I don’t think any one is going to be more interested in MW3 because it won a VGA.

    I love the fact that David Jaffe is an actual fan of what you guys do.  I remember him asking Glenn (and maybe newb Josh and Joel) a while back why the podcast (and website) is not your regular paying job. 
    I think it’s awesome that a full time game developer (Twisted Metal AND God of War – holy shit!) respects what you do and gives you his time because he believes that what you do goes above and (beyond!) other peoples efforts.  
    I really do think it’s time that you guys take a chance and give it a shot.  There are many sites out there generating millions of dollars because someone said ‘fuck it, lets just go for it’.

    I recently quit my job without knowing what I was going to do next.  Two days later I had a higher paying job at a much less corporate company for more money and couldn’t be fucking happier.

    You guys should chase your dreams and go for it.

    I am going to click the donate button right now.  Any loyal listeners should do the same and help these dudes out – they give us joy every week (less sport talk is appreciated) and we should return the favor.

    Peace and happy holidays.

    I’d love to join a Starhawk server if you guys are hosting.  My PSN ID is jboyjeeks.  I think Starwark is awesome.  I’m amazed by the graphics  and how smooth the game is.

    Great show fella! Really enjoy that conversation with Jaffe.

  • http://techmansworld.blogspot.com MHazell

    Only if Jaffe could be on the show more. That guy is really great to talk to (and listen!).

    Does anyone know where you can get that theme song by it is written? Is there a way to stream it off of somewhere? I love the theme music

    • http://www.psnation.org/ Joel

      It’s from their upcoming CD that hasn’t yet been released for sale. The band is optimistic that the disc will be released in the next few months and we’ll definitely share all the details on our podcast and on this website.

      In the meantime you can check out some of their tunes here (stream and download):http://www.reverbnation.com/itiswritten

      More links for It Is Written are available in the show notes above.

            Oh my bad, fixed the comment. I was having a Disqus conversation with Josh earlier, so I thought it was Josh =)
