Dale isn’t here so we’re free to talk about things invented after the ’80s. Namely, first person shooters, MMORGs, and free to play games. That mostly means Planetside 2, but we do talk about some others.

Things are said on this episode. That’s right…things. Dale does a terrible job of selling Dystopian Wars to us. Other than that, I’m not really sure what we talked about. Surely, this is our best episode ever.
