Why is Chris playing Star Wars games? What unexpected turn caused me to buy Starcraft 2? What ridiculous stuff happened in SimCity this week? What mailbag letters will we answer? The answers to these questions can be found by listening to the podcast.
00:45 What’s everyone playing?
Josh: The Witcher, Crusader Kings 2
Monaco, Mark of the Ninja, Poker Night 2, Brutal Legend, Fez, Miasmata, Deadlight, Knife of Dunwall. Actually, just Starcraft 2.
Rutskarn has been LARPing. Don’t tell mom.
18:00 Aliens: Colonial Marines
25:20 EA gets Star Wars exclusive.
32:00 SimCity. Still! Yeah!
39:30 Diablo III integer overflow.
And yes, I bungled this explanation a bit with regard to what values can be stored in a 4-byte integer, and I muddled the economic explanation. In my defense, I realized that what I THOUGHT was going to be a quick explanation quickly turned into me hogging the podcast for five minutes. It tried to hurry through it, and we wound up with an explanation that was both long AND sprinkled with mis-statements and inaccuracies.
49:20 MAIL TIME!
