Wasteland 2, League of Legends e-sports Update, The D&D Monster Manual, Dealing With Loss in Games, Your Emails and More! This week Julian, Allen and Elysium talk about loss in games. Sorry in advance for Allen's audio track, gremlins got it.
Halfway through the drive and we're continuing apace quite nicely so far! Very close to unlocking custom icons for some lucky winners and then a hop, skip and a jump away from forcing Julian to write something deep and meaningful about something ridiculous.

Time played: 1.9 Hours Sponsored By: A soft-hearted dad who can't say no when four-year-old boy says he wants to play "the Mawn!" Bite-Size Review An adorable cautionary tale about invasive species. Super-Size Review My kids love games. They love playing games (my seven-year-old daughter is better at Little Big Planet than I am, and has been speed-running Hohokum).

I don't know what came over me. Really. Usually I am scrupulous to the point of obsession about playing games in order. I can't even watch a serialized TV show a la carte. If there's a big story arc, I have to watch it all, or not at all. So why did I play Fallout 3 before I played any Elder Scrolls games? I read the reviews, I listened to the podcasts.
The year of deep, crowd-funded, computer RPGs marches on with the release of Wasteland 2 by inExile entertainment and Brian Fargo.

Sponsored by: Antichulius Play Time (official Steam log): 80 minutes Lightly Browned, Unbuttered Review A delightful, lighthearted, physics-based romp through a future in which all the living creatures have been destroyed by out-of-control robots.
