We don’t talk about Gone Home in this episode, but we wanted to. We do spend the first segment of the show talking about how we reacted to the game. I don’t know if it’ll get its own one-off special, or if we’ll just give it a couple of weeks so people can play through it. But I will say the response from the cast is universally positive.
01:00 What is all the peoples doing this week?
Josh is playing Gone Home. He’s also playing Warthunder and suggests that you sign up using this link in order to most optimally benefit him.
Chris is playing Gone Home and Spelunky. He also made this video about Gone Home.
Mumbles is playing Gone Home and Guild Wars 2.
Shamus is playing Gone Home, Valley Without Wind, and Kairo. (I called it “Kairos” throughout this segment. In my defense, a friend of mine owned a coffee shop called Kairos and saying “Kairo” is like trying to say “Borderland”. It’s hard to make my mouth stop before the s!) But mostly coding.
Rutskarn is playing the Humble Origin Bundle.
27:00 (ish) The Sims, in general.
Not a planned topic, but we spent some time talking about it.
38:00 Sim City News
The “Gimmie five bucks to not stab you” video is here: Doctor Who – Hey Ash Whatcha Playin’?
Final Fantasy X
A game about the ghost of an underwater football player who travels through time to save the world from a tick that controls kaiju satan. Really.
Philosophy of Moderation
The comments on most sites are a sewer of hate, because we're moderating with the wrong goals in mind.
Blistering Stupidity of Fallout 3
Yeah, this game is a classic. But the story is idiotic, incoherent, thematically confused, and patronizing.
WAY back in 2005, I wrote about a D&D campaign I was running. The campaign is still there, in the bottom-most strata of the archives.
What is Vulkan?
There's a new graphics API in town. What does that mean, and why do we need it?
