Clearly, the guys don't want to reach episode 365, which heralds the end of the show. Thus, all shows from here on will be Episode 300.

Yay Plaid Hat. Can't wait to listen to this episode

Ok, let's be clear here.

Why is Julian so bad at Summoner Wars?

Also, can you recommend a particular mechanical keyboard?

I'm sorry, I couldn't resist.

Thanks for having Colby on. I'm a big fan of Summoner Wars, and I'm looking forward to the next time you have him on to talk about Dungeon Run on the iOS.

OTRSPOD combat was actually pretty good in the first two, but not particularly original. I played all the way to the end of 2 and was disappointed it didn't get continued by Hothead games.

OTRSPOD3 steals ideas from Grandia, which has one of the best JRPG combat systems around. I haven't played it enough to know if they did a good implementation of it or not.

I am one of the people that Plaid Hat is talking about making time in the board game realm from my gaming time, some friends have recently introduced me to it and now we find ourselves setting aside time each week to try new board games etc and I'm really interested summoner wars.

Re: Rabbit speaking of XBMC on the Ouja. It's already ported to Android and should be released for real soon.

Cloby Douche was a great guest. Get him back on again soon. Also, I love listening to Pyroman's laugh and his odd jokes here and there. Great show, guys!

Great show, had me cracking up on my way into work this morning, greatly enjoyed the end. I too gave money to the Ouya because right now my PC that I had hooked up to my TV is deader than Final Fantasy Versus XIII....okay maybe my PC is slightly more dead, anyway I like the idea of a cheap console hooked up to my TV that I can hack if I want, and can play come android games that maybe I don't want to play on my phone. I like the idea of this console, and I too think it will get made and then the community will make it or break it so to speak. And if it does come out and works like a media server for only a hundred bucks then to me that is a much better deal then replacing my PC and if it doesn't I'm only out a hundred bucks that could have gone to a PC, but I've had worse things happen. Could be good

Agreed on all counts.

So I just listened to an episode about an IOS game. I'll probably never play it, because I'm an Android user. But that's alright. Sounds like a boardgame I might buy. The condescending comment about the OUYA and Angry Birds bothers me though. I know, the Android market can't compete with the app store, but a lot has happened since Angry Birds. Now excuse me while I play Shadowgun (on a phone that actually has a gig of RAM).

Edit: double post

Indeed. Anyone who thinks that Angry Birds is where the Android OS's capabilities lay needs to look a bit harder at the games out for it.

What I'm curious about is whether the OUYA supports Keyboards. If so, what about Order and Chaos online? The WoW clone on the Android/iOS could be a surprise success for the OUYA.

Clobby Douche. I laughed for a solid half hour after the show was over over that one.

Forgot to ask in my previous comment...

Clobby, (is it 1 b or 2) will Summoner Wars be ported to Android anytime soon?

I think you're pronouncing it wrong, Erik.

I only speak with my fingers, unless there's booze.
