Geez, two things I screwed up in my content postin' storm yesterday. Thanks!

Games that meet the stringent requirements of being a Half Life like exist:

You never leave the perspective of the main protagonist (no cut scenes)
Ammo and health look like ammo and health, not glowing, floating pickups
The game does interesting things with physics and scale
Fulcrum puzzles galore
Bad vehicle sections

Of course, I'm talking about Duke Nukem Forever

I'm here for you.

Great show this week. One question - did I miss where the XCOM2 posters are posted in the show notes (or elsewhere)? Interested to see how those look. Thanks.

I tweeted one here!

What, you're just starting to get mouse elbow now? My first flare-up was in my teens, when I was maybe playing a little too much Jedi Knight.

Why do you two look like Old Solid Snake and Big Boss?
