The mailbag has been empty for a few weeks now. I assume this is because we stopped answering them in a timely manner. That’s fair. But if you have questions and boundless optimism, the email is in the header image. Good luck!

00:32 Something something Star Fox Zero
Sort of. This first half of the show is basically a long collection of digressions and distractions.
28:24 Playstation 4.5
The new Playstation NEO.
39:25 Mumbles was on the Wrestlecast
Go listen to Mumbles talk about wrestlemans! She knows her stuff!
Related to Wrasslin’, I saw this video: Wrestling isn’t Wrestling by Max Landis, and I found it charming as hell. It gave me a better understanding and appreciation for the show than every wrestling advertisement I’ve ever seen in my entire life.
The video introduces the story-driven drama of wrestling by telling the 20-year history of Triple H. It tells the story with all of the wrestler genders flipped, which is fun and hilarious. Watch the credits if you want to see the real-life dudes these women are playing.
Be on the lookout for other names that should be familiar, even if you don’t know anything about wrestling. Aside from a handful of celebrity cameos casually thrown in the mix, you’ll see Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Dave Batista is there, who you might recognize as Drax the Destroyer from Guardians of the Galaxy. And the tall dude in the black bikini top? He’s playing Chyna, who died just last week.
45:12 Mirrors Edge
Mirrors Edge has been delayed again.
Artless in Alderaan
People were so worried about the boring gameplay of The Old Republic they overlooked just how boring and amateur the art is.
Starcraft: Bot Fight
Let's do some scripting to make the Starcraft AI fight itself, and see how smart it is. Or isn't.
MMO Population Problems
Computers keep getting more powerful. So why do the population caps for massively multiplayer games stay about the same?
The Opportunity Crunch
No, brutal, soul-sucking, marriage-destroying crunch mode in game development isn't a privilege or an opportunity. It's idiocy.
Are Lootboxes Gambling?
Obviously they are. Right? Actually, is this another one of those sneaky hard-to-define things?
