I feel like we’re overdue for another SoldierHawk visit. I like to invite her on the show when she’s finished with a game, and right now she’s playing through three games at once. Hopefully we can make another visit happen before the end of the year.

00:00 Let’s Talk About The Weather
Even as I write this post on Sunday night, we’ve still got 20k people without power. My wife just ran to the store and there were even traffic lights out. It was also strangely quiet. If people are without power then I’d expect them to leave the house. Maybe go out to eat. See a movie. Window shopping. Whatever. But the roads were mostly empty aside from the trucks from the power company.

It seems kinda unique to me, I haven’t seen anything quite like this before.
The Grand Tour The Game is a thing that exists. I came with questions, and I left with even more questions.
Steam Summer Blues
This mess of dross, confusion, and terrible UI design is the storefront the big publishers couldn't beat? Amazing.
Grand Theft Railroad
Grand Theft Auto is a lousy, cheating jerk of a game.
Spec Ops: The Line
A videogame that judges its audience, criticizes its genre, and hates its premise. How did this thing get made?
Another PC Golden Age?
Is it real? Is PC gaming returning to its former glory? Sort of. It's complicated.
Denuvo and the "Death" of Piracy
