This episode of the Diecast contains equal amounts of Shamus Young and gluten. I’m going to write up these show notes as I listen.
Episode edited by Rachel.
2:00 Josh tells his Fallout 1 anecdote.
Like many sad stories from Fallout 1, this one begins with, “I was traveling with Ian when…”
0:06:52: Doom versus Dark Souls
Rutskarn pits these two games directly against one another and comes to the inescapable conclusion that you are probably a scrub. Or something. I don’t know. I kind of zoned out when Dark Souls came up.
0:16:23: Civil War 2 (Big Spoilers!)
Chris is reading the comics and telling us why that might not be a great idea.

0:46:28: Twitter Mailbag: Games Too Old to Play

@nicemovemumbles have there been cases where you guys didn’t review a game because it was “too old”? If so, which game?
I’m a big believer that this should be the main thrust of Rutskarn’s Patreon. His best content is when he’s trapped in some unbearable ancient game that barely ran even on its intended hardware where – after hours of tears and confusion when he finally overcomes the game’s broken systems by pitting them against its glitches – once he beats the game nobody will care because nobody even remembers it. Basically, if we can just keep him doing that forever and ever I’ll be happy.
And if you haven’t been reading Rutskarn’s series on Battlespire, you’re missing out on the best thing this site has to offer about the worst thing Bethesda has to offer. You should check it out. Start here.
