If the show auto-plays for you, please consult this post for details. In short, it’s a bug in the latest Firefox, I can’t fix it, but it should be patched soon. (And maybe the patch is up already.)
00:01:30 Zack Snyder: “The Force Awakens Killed More Civilians Than Man of Steel”
Above is the quote that got all the attention in the original WSJ article, but for me THIS quote is the one that really raised my eyebrows:
“I was surprised with the fervency of the defense of the concept of Superman. I feel like they were taking it personally that I was trying to grow up their character.”
If that comment was supposed to smooth things out, I think it… didn’t.
Like I said in the show, this is on my to-watch list as soon as this Good Robot business is over.
31:30 Rutskarn’s Tales of D&D Tomfoolery.
Also contains japery and shenanigans.
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.
Project Button Masher
I teach myself music composition by imitating the style of various videogame soundtracks. How did it turn out? Listen for yourself.
Lost Laughs in Leisure Suit Larry

Quakecon Keynote 2013 Annotated
