Half-Glass Gaming [Episode 10] : Carlos Menception

Carlos Menception

This week’s episode is a Zelda-themed egg-stravaganza, as we regale our listeners with tales of Zelda games past and Mandi spits some mad trivia about chickens. A new character, Pillowcase Head, steps out of the Minnesota cold and into your hearts, while the Reverend goes sober for a bit and even skips a wrestling match due to a potential ulcer. Wasserman wouldn’t have allowed those sorts of shenanigans, but thankfully this ain’t his show.

Plus, Josh’s Miyamoto sighting, Mandi’s fan base, Julian’s soul, and the Reverend’s bizarre payment options. Really, what kind of minister accepts weed and booze as acceptable forms of currency? Ours does!

And, to top it all off, we’ve got a bonus Zelda-themed track by a great band. Don’t miss it!

If you’re interested in the pantsless Link debacle that we mention in the podcast, here’s a great article that illustrates our points very well — that Link needs to be more careful about his garment choices.

I’m feeling a tad embarassed. I hope my comments about Mandi weren’t overzealous. I just think she’s a smart and lovely girl. I meant no offense to Mandi or you, Josh. You’re a very lucky man.

If I haven’t stepped on too many toes, I’d like to add my own favourite and least favorite Zelda games. Like Nate and Julian, my favourite Zelda is undoubtedly A Link to the Past. It has everything you could want in a Zelda game. I’ve replayed it again and again. My least favourite is Skyward Sword. You just explore the same three zones over and over and the dungeons have a lot of repetition. It’s the only Zelda I’ve played that wasn’t fun.
