Heads up: In two weeksThe episode will go live on July 27. I’m going to have SoldierHawke back on the show. We’re going to talk about Eastshade and other games we’ve been playing lately. If you have questions for Paul and I – or for SoldierHawke and I – the email is in the header image.
Hosts: Paul, Shamus. Episode edited by Issac.

04:49 Snowflake Servers at Work.

16:20 The new Atari VCS
41:07 Paul finished playing Eastshade
I still haven’t played it yet. Like I said at the top of the show, I’ve been busy.

1:01:13 The Wallpaper
Sure, let’s randomly talk about wallpaper at the end of the show for no reason. I’m a great podcast host!
 The episode will go live on July 27.
