“Steve,” called the substitute teacher, Miss Personality Vacuum.
“Yes, ma’am,” Steve replied.
“Come, miss,” Frank replied.
“Yes, ma’am,” George replied.
“Yes, miss, here it is,” Stacey replied.
“Idiot,” Miss Personality Vacuum continued.
The silence was broken only by a slight turning of the head and the sound of the neck rubbing against the collar of the shirt.
“Idiot,” Miss Personality Vacuum said again, this time with a vague stare at the classroom.
Still only audible voices could be heard on the quilt, but the head that turned his head might as well draw an arrow pointing directly at Dickhead.
“Idiot, if it’s you, please reply.” Miss Personality Vacuum asked politely.
“My name isn’t Dickhead,” Dickhead said, with the crankiness of talking baby Jack Russell.
“I’m sorry,” said Miss V. “What’s your name?”
“Dick,” Dickhead sneered.
“Okay, thank you,” Miss V said, leaving her tone unpunished and just passing the register.
“Kate,” Miss V asked.
“Aren’t you calling my name?” interrupted Dickhead.
“Okay, yes,” Miss V was a little flustered now, obviously a little angry, but tried not to show it. “Dick.”
Miss V stared at Dickhead, a look that would either turn you to stone or burn a hole right in you.
“My name is Dickhead,” Dickhead said.
I fucking hate Dickhead.With this, welcome to iGamesNews The Best Gaming Podcast Everepisode 12: The best games to hate for a specific reason.
Be sure to let us know what you think of the show – if this is your first time listening, come back and listen to the previous episodes. If you have suggestions for topics, we’d love to hear them. I hate to say we’re scraping barrels, but… someone suggested “best duck game” the other day, and for a moment I thought it was the best idea ever.
“What is iGamesNews’s best gaming podcast ever?” you ask as you try to figure out what Dickhead’s real name is. Three syllables can be shortened to two. This is the only clue you get. I expect him to go on to a 30-minute panel show where people decide the best game in a particular category, like this podcast – although unlike this podcast, which can be mean, Ignorance, and not like it thinks it is.
We’ve included some details on the show’s content below (if you want a refresher for a great, thoughtful post before heading over to the review, or don’t want to hear but want to know which games we’ve picked), so if you want to To avoid spoilers, please don’t scroll through this fan-made Chris Bratt if he were a rather large chocobo (friends supporting iGamesNews, People Make Games, on Patreon).
The best games you hate for a specific reason
This is the subject of episode 12 of iGamesNews’s Best Gaming Podcast Ever. Here’s a rundown of who chose what.
Tom – Final Fantasy 7 (original)
Yes, I picked one of the most beloved games of all time, but no, the reason I didn’t leave was that the game’s marketing sold people a game that didn’t look like it. Essentially, I’m stuck on the first disc, okay? Maybe I’m bored and really too lazy to figure out what I’m going to do, but in my opinion, the saucer area was so bad I just gave up.
Alex – love from Russia
Sean Connery provides his voice and likeness for the new Bond game! What could go wrong? Well, it seems the performance is ok. While Sean was beloved in the classic James Bond movies, his performance in the PS2-era video game was abysmal. it’s a pity.
James – 4th man
Persona 4 is a great game, and you’ll find that country life is more exciting than you thought, as you solve the mysterious case of an otherworldly killer and forge friendships that last a lifetime. The only trouble is that you can throw it all away in the space of one conversation, and possibly hours of progress and invested time. There’s nowhere in the game to tell you that, but you should be working more at the corner store, idiot.
Let us know what game you would choose, if you think James will write jokes ahead of time so he can read the script?
