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’?
Who Broke the In-Game Economy?
Why are RPG economies so bad? Why are shopkeepers so mercenary, why are the prices so crazy, and why do you always end up a gazillionaire by the end of the game? Can't we just have a sensible balanced economy?
Do you like electronic music? Do you like free stuff? Are you okay with amateur music from someone who's learning? Yes? Because that's what this is.

An ongoing series where I work on making a 2D action game from scratch.
Stop Asking Me to Play Dark Souls!
An unhinged rant where I maybe slightly over-reacted to the water torture of Souls evangelism.
Bethesda’s Launcher is Everything You Expect
From the company that brought us Fallout 76 comes a storefront / Steam competitor. It's a work of perfect awfulness. This is a monument to un-usability and anti-features.
