    It’s whoring time! My illustrious brother and my marginally less-illustrious self were both on the MobCast this week alongside Shoe and Brett Bates. We had a good chat about all manner of stuff and I think you guys will dig it. Here’s the show description straight from the horse’s mouth:

    In this episode of the Mobcast, Britain invades! Freelancer Pete Davison and his well-known brother, GameSpot and Metacritic VP John Davison, join Bitmob’s Dan Hsu and Brett Bates. The group discusses their early contenders for game of the year, genres and tropes that have fallen by the wayside, how younger people approach the medium, whether reviews should focus on product evaluation or art critique, and how the U.S. and the U.K. approach games differently.

    I loved the random analogies. “It’s like Michael Jackson. This is it.” “It’s like Riddler’s 3D brain-sucking in Batman Forever.”

    I listened to the first 20 minutes last night and enjoyed it plenty.

    The thing I don’t like about the Mobcast’s format is that people get discouraged from straying from the chosen topics. Once or twice, you guys had wandered onto a totally different topic, and even though it was getting interesting, someone would be like, “But back to the topic at hand…”

    @tolkoto Good work on the Mobcast and EBP, too. But hell, that bird on the Mobcast was possibly the most grating fan-person I’ve heard in a while, paradoxically the kind of person she purports to dislike. Can’t say I enjoy the format of the Mobcast terribly much, but if you appear in future episodes, I’ll listen on through the discourse for those gleaming nuggets of Minotti wisdom.

    That’s going to keep me entertained while waiting in the airport tomorrow morning. I’m hoping it doesn’t put me to sleep, but from what everyone is saying, it isn’t promising. Maybe I’ll just stay awake for Mike’s parts.

    @tolkoto Mike, you know I think you’re awesome, right?

    This podcast is an abortion. I feel badly for you and Aaron, who obviously have an idea how to record a show. The other three nerds are nigh unlistenable. I’ll finish it, but only because you’re a pal.

    Sweet. According to iTunes, I haven’t listened to the Mobcast since March, but I’m downloading the new one.

    Totally agree with that philosophy, Tolkoto. That’s the main reason why I never got into Co-Op yet watched every episode of the 1UP Show.

    @tolkoto I just got done listening to it. Mike, you were seriously the best guest on there…no bias. I love that you’re not afraid to speak your mind and drop the knowledge on fools. Thanks for pimpin’ the Squad. It ain’t easy.

    …and we love you, too…hairy legs and all.
