Humourless ponce lol. Might put that on a t shirt. 

 

No offence Jon. I loved Chet and Jon’s, please don’t beat me up.

 

Good on David Turner for apologising on this weeks show, can’t have been easy for him to do that with Farley listening.

I imagine that @jcafarley has that apology on constant loop while he is sat in his favourite chair, smoking jacket on with a malt in one hand and pipe the other!

If by “pipe” you mean his John Thomas, then yes I would agree with you.

Well played @elmo for apologising and for realising that the joke last week went a bit awry (though I found it funny, but I figured it was all a parody). Enjoying this weeks pod so far.

A week behind but it's a real shame Jon has left. I always got the sense that he was always waiting for the opportunity to pipe up with some informed gaming opinions and interesting insights, but he'd only get about one or two opportunities to do so in the course of a whole show and therefore his presence was a bit of a waste. Which I guess what someone further up this page meant when they said "he didn't really fit into TCGS". I do think they'll miss that angle on the show though -  as much as I enjoy listening to it (and I do, it's the only gaming podcast I listen to) I do look forward to some proper gamey discussions (in amongst the bants), and Jon was bloody excellent at that. Hopefully he'll consider popping up as a guest now and then if someone is missing.

 

Glad to hear Sean is back as he also brings something similar to the show.

Why did Jon leave? (I skipped the whole argument bit on last weeks show)

I think they said it's due to the success of his Rock Reacts YouTube channel. It seems to have really taken off, so I guess he wants to devote more time to that. Shame, as for me his game reviews are the best on this or any podcast. Hope he still makes the odd appearance.

Assorted work commitments from what Dave said, with Rock Reacts likely taking up a lot of time and interest at the mo. 

 

I really liked Jon's input - eloquent, passionate, insightful, hilariously withering at times. I liked how he'd really champion certain personal favourites and cut through cliché and received opinion. It was a somewhat different show compared to when Sean was there because, you know, they have different personalities! I'll hope that he pops back when the opportunity presents and fingers crossed that Rock Reacts works out for him.

 

Also brilliant to have Sean back, and I thought this week's was a cracker. Fair play to Dave for addressing the feedback directly. It'd be easy to handwave it as just a joke between mates but I hope he got back any goodwill lost from those who weren't happy with last week's show. He did well.

I heard matt choked him out and humiliated him so thoroughly he swore off video games and now only listens to rock music.

Never have I felt as out of touch with the modern world as I did watching that Rock Reacts YouTube channel. Do people watch it because it looks like the two hot guys might kiss at any moment? Jon's a fantastic, hard working bloke and I wish him all the luck in the world but I've not a clue what the kids see in it.

Ha! I'm a 46 year old listener of mainly mor music. Simon and Jon have got me listening to and getting excited about hip hop.

 

Could be mid-life crisis I suppose.

Only half-way through this week's TCGS, and it's a delight. The combination of Elmo's apologies and Sean's return is lovely. I've always enjoyed Jon's podcasting, but he did feel slightly out of place here. Especially as he seemed to be edging closer to shouting "It's political correctness gone mad!" with each passing week.

I quite like it, a pair of old bastards nodding their heads to some hip hop and metal... maybe because I’m an old bastard myself who does exactly this on a regular basis.

Surprised to hear the apology this week, I just assumed Dave losing a few pounds and becoming an increasingly tedious cunty bully who gets upstaged by a couple of friendly muppets was all part of the Ricky Gervais tribute act.

Catching up on some my forgotten podcasts to find out Midnight Resistence has finished. What was the reason for that? But now i've found TCGS instead which is great as a previous Joypod fan.

Loved this weeks’s TCGS/TGCS and really can’t wait to hear the E3 show, always an annual highlight!

Sean had a baby, is probably the main reason.

The latest and last (!) Checkpoints just went live today, ep #128.

 

For the final show I managed to pull Robert Ashley from video game retirement and we have a brilliant chat about his life in games. 

 

There are a bunch of reasons I'm finishing up the show - which if you're interested I talk about in next week's epilogue episode where I'm interviewed by Violet Berlin -  suffice to say it's for good reasons. I'm sticking the landing. 

 

It's been a brilliant time! Thanks to everyone who has listened. If you never listened I'm going to start repeating the show from the start in the next few weeks. The content is evergreen, iTunes only archives the last 100 eps and there are WAY more people listening to the show now than there were at the start so it seems appropriate.

Please no!! One of my fave ever podcasts!
