On this very special not-at-all-a-podcast edition of Toilet Radio, Joe and 365 play through the new game from Dream Theater, The Astonishing Game. Watch the video as Joe, an actual idiot, tries his best to figure out how to play this fucking game without reading a word of the tutorial and 365 provides the crucial backstory that makes the world of The Astonishing so, uh, astonishing.

    Whoa… videocast!

  • Señor Jefe El Rosa

    This is so nerdy.

    Good lord.

    I might try to sit through this tonight, but for now I just skipped forward a bit… Is that the actual framerate and smoothness of the game? Or is it your capturing software. God I hope it’s the real thing, because it’s HORRID.

    • TheGranulatingDarkSatanicMilfs

      It may be their software. In the trailer the game seems to run smoothly

      • Rain Poncho W.

        Yo dawg, I emailed you. HMU ASAP.

        • TheGranulatingDarkSatanicMilfs

          Sorry, I hadn’t checked my email

          • Rain Poncho W.

            No worries. Just figured you’d want to see this one 😉

    • You’re seeing the same choppy bullshit I saw while playing it.

      • TheGranulatingDarkSatanicMilfs

        That’s a bummer. Thanks, Joe, I was about to spend $3 on Steam to find out

        • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

          It’s not really a bummer if you saved $3 instead of getting this.

          • TheGranulatingDarkSatanicMilfs

            I can always get it later

      • tigeraid

        Hoo-lee FACK.

        • GL

          wooloolooooo-FACK

  • This game looks Astonishably bad. One hour Joe and 365 will never get back.

  • Sir Ukkometso The Based

    The fact that someone would pay for this is astonishing
    #OriginalJoke

    • I accidentally paid for it TWICE!

      • Sir Ukkometso The Based

        THEY PLAYED YOU LIKE A FIDDLE

      “You hit him in the dick then he left in shame” is the quote of the day for me.

      • GL

        There are too many quips to remember!

  • Rain Poncho W.

    In a dystopian future, a princess meets a man with a golden voice.

    Got. Dangit.

          God damn you.

          • Rain Poncho W.

            Surely you’ve seen people vomiting while running. Surely.

        • Elegant Gazing Globe

          looks like how I spent my day yesterday

    • It gets better! The game explained the plot line of this stupid fucking album. NEFARYUS starts a war because he is afraid of the power of the dipshit that sings and plays guitar in the park.

      • KyleJMcBride

        It not only sucks ass, but it’s a watered down 2112 ripoff.

        • Exactly! Rush did this shit way better 30 fucking years ago!

          • KyleJMcBride

            40 years ago even. ^_^

        My favourite part was the Prince Daring following his sister around with “evil intentions he’s all too eager to… ( I forgot the exact wording, and I’m not watching it again)”.

        Like, how does someone write that and not be embarrassed of the incestual porking fantasy they just brought into the world.

      • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

        NEFARYUS vs the noisy kids at the local playground. NEFARYUS yells at cloud. NEFARYUS watches Matlock.

    • One wouldn’t think the singer of a famous band would need a shitty, self-serving fanfic-tier story with a Gary Stu main character, but reality looks to have sidelined me.

      • Rain Poncho W.

        Is this all a bid for dudes to get laid?

        • It would take a very sad individual to want to do someone for having a hand in this game.

          • Rain Poncho W.

            “I’m the man with the golden voice! Denko pls! (´・ω・`)”

          • Actually that’s probably the tier of Sad it would take.

        • GL

          Dude, GLEEP MEEP DEEEP MEEP, obviously.

  • Joaquin Stick

    Judging by the flaming trash bins in the eye-in-the-sky factory, at least Trump was able to bring good manufacturing back to the US.

  • Rain Poncho W.

    The guys with the hammers should be able to easily smash their stupid guitars.

  • Rain Poncho W.

    Joe, you’e so bad at this.

  • Black Smallbeard

    Would you have been more mad if the game was great?

  • The “Demostrate My Style” shout out was not lost on me.

  • Elegant Gazing Globe

    they could do much better. I hear Curt Schilling is looking for a new game dev job

  • Dumpster Lung

    The whole “Dream Theater is for perpetual nerd-virgins” thing might have been harsh in years past, maybe even hyperbole. It is undoubtedly 100% accurate now. Goddamn this album/game tie-in is shockingly cringey.

    I am very pleased to see the TovH branching into hilarious Let’s Play videos. I often open the windows and play Let’s Play videos at high volume so the neighbors think I have friends. This was a blast. Thanks, dudes!

    I’m halfway through and I’m sick of that acoustic guitar guy.
    Also I like that when they die they just leave, it’s the same reaction from their last album.
