    A podcast... on time!?

    By the suggestion of the graceful and delicately understated @Knight of Fafnir , KH-Vids Podcast hosts @Misty, @libregkd, and @Calxiyn are joined by podcast alum @Llaverion for a discussion about preorders! We establish gamers' reasons for preordering, why & how publishers and retailers encourage the practice, and preorders that have disappointed us. Made to feel guilty over her preorder for The Order 1886, @Misty addresses some of the backlash the game has received in the weeks before its release, which leads us into a discussion of the nature of game review scores and the value of playing a game for yourself.

    Afterwards we launch into user-submitted questions! @Graxe poses the offer of a suddenly enormous and controllable tongue and @Eric Luna asks us to take the place of a video game protagonist. We also answer a Table Topics question about our most controversial personality traits, which somehow leads into a debate about the relative pros and cons of wearing socks.

    Finally we plug some community news and projects! The Top 5 Winter Seasonal has begun, where video editors can earn a pin, a special Wonderland prize, and a chance to be featured on our homepage! We also remind everyone of the opportunity to suggest games for future Spoilercasts through our topic submission form! So if there's a game out there that you really feel we could have a good discussion about, definitely send it our way and we'll look into it.

      So, who likes my question?

      • Yep, Knight of Fafnir (you pronounced it right!) is an Etrian Odyssey thing! It's the subtitle of Etrian Odyssey Untold II (and the title of its player character), which, annoyingly, has yet to be announced for release anywhere outside of Japan, where it was released in November. >:L (also i think you might like etrian odyssey so if you ever get a 3ds you should give the demos for eou and eo4 a shot~)
      • I suggested pre-orders as a topic partly because of Misty's The Order: 1886 obsession, and partly because of my Etrian Odyssey obsession; I recently pre-ordered Etrian Mystery Dungeon (only because I wanted the pre-order bonuses: a small artbook, a CD, and a collectors' box).
      • The Wii U also has digital pre-loading, in a more recent change.
      • I don't typically pre-order things. I prefer to buy pre-owned because it's cheaper. EMD is my first pre-order, for the reasons stated above.
      • No, GameStop still requires the $5 for pre-orders in-store. However, the $5 is deducted from the launch price. So for pre-ordering EMD, a $35 game, I'll only have to pay $30 when I go to pick it up.
      • Misty confirmed to want to use a prehensile tongue like Madame Vastra
      • I Am Bread is so stressful to watch I wouldn't be able to stand playing it ;___;
      • I'd likely just be a Pokémon Trainer...
