Our original plan was to do a week of the first Deus Ex, but that plan fell through because of… Uh. Well, you’ll see.
Mumbles is taking this season off. We may have another host join at the end of January. I’m still working on it. Announcements will follow.
In my defense, Deus Ex: Original Flavor looked and sounded fine on my computer, but the resulting broadcast was a horrific mess for the other hosts. I could fix it by switching DE to OpenGL mode. That would work, but only if I retained the default of 16bit color and super-low resolution. If I changed those, the game would crash. I am once again reminded of just what a fantastic Rube Golberg contraption our setup is. It’s a miracle this show works at all.
Also, if you’re anxious for a dose of Mumbles and you’re keen to find out what she thought of the original Deus Ex, then check out her article on Damnlag.
