Hosts: Josh, Rutskarn, Shamus, Campster, and Baychel.
This is it! We finally get around to answering all those questions you’ve been sending us.
Who is this person named Baychel? What happened to Rachel? Why are you changing your name? Why don’t you like your original name? And while we’re at it, what goes into naming a human being anyway?
0:10:29: Errant Signal
Dear Errant Signal,
It’s been over a month since your last episode. You okay buddy?
Chris said the next episode would be up before this podcast, and he was true to his word:
0:13:19: Favorite Mods
What’s your favorite mod?
0:14:00: Day Jobs
What do you guys do for a living? I know most of you have blogs or youtube channels, but besides Shamus I don’t get the impression that it’s your livelihood.
0:15:30 Remembering The Escapist, and the evolution of gaming news.
0:29:33: The story of why Esther paid $420 to play Dishonored 2
Update: She’s enjoying it so far, but this is her first stealth game so progress is slow.
0:38:05: Why so Short?
How come everyone in first person games are so short? I started playing Soma the other day, and Simon is only approximately a head taller than his own toilet cistern. I remember being shorter than a lot of handrails in Bioshock, too. What’s going on?
0:45:55: History lesson
I forget what game this relates to.
When Lovecraft’s monsters are involved, people are often sticklers about following the rules or philosophy of his stories. Why do people care about how uncaring eldritch monstrosities are? There isn’t a lot of complaining when greek monsters are used outside of tragedies or trolls aren’t defeated by porridge eating contests.
0:53:39: Favorite game in least favorite genre.
Greetings Crossers of the Rubicon!
What is your favourite game from your least favourite genre?
Keep on keep on-ing!
What is Vulkan?
There's a new graphics API in town. What does that mean, and why do we need it?
Spec Ops: The Line
A videogame that judges its audience, criticizes its genre, and hates its premise. How did this thing get made?
Pixel City Dev Blog
An attempt to make a good looking cityscape with nothing but simple tricks and a few rectangles of light.
Bethesda’s Launcher is Everything You Expect

Silent Hill Origins
Here is a long look at a game that tries to live up to a big legacy and fails hilariously.
