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.
00:00 Shamus’ New Desk
04:49 Snowflake Servers at Work.
This segment fills me with anxiety.
This is also a good excuse for the rest of you to tell your horror stories about the various janky computers and servers you’ve been forced to care for 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.
51:13 Mailbag: Rust
Daniel “Philadelphus” Berke
56:17 Duoae asks…
“How much do we have to pay Shamus to do a whole podcast in fake cockney English?”
1:00:12 Joshuah says…
“It sounds like Shamus needs to actually try being a PC in a virtual game, due to his concerns about his time. I’m sure there are plenty of fans here who would be happy to have him try out their games.”
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.

Best. Plot Twist. Ever.
Few people remember BioWare's Jade Empire, but it had a unique setting and a really well-executed plot twist.
Even allegedly smart people can make life-changing blunders that seem very, very obvious in retrospect.
If Star Wars Was Made in 2006?
