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.

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.

Yes, this game is loud, crude, childish, and stupid. But it it knows what it wants to be and nails it. And that's admirable.
