Esteban is back in Tokyo from EVO 2015, and afflicted with the titular longing for.. exactly what, I don't think either of us knows. As he lays supine on his futon staring up at his water-stained ceiling, perhaps he will realize what is missing in his heart.

Meanwhile, I have bought a house, and a car, and a new life--one of neverending chores and errands and phone calls to various utiilty and service providers and home repair and home finance and learning my way around Home Depot and moving out and moving in and I just hope all this stuff has settled by the fall so I can play some good games.

We touch on:

Rising Thunder

Assassin's Creed Unity

Her Story

Drive Club

Dragon Ball Kai

(And also Daredevil and True Detective, but I'm not sure those made the actual recording)

It's that magical season again when all the gaming industry's industrious developers and conniving publishers flock to sunny blasted southern California to cry their wares. But are we buying? You there, Bethesda, that's a sturdy name, did your mama give you that one? I like the look of your wares. The rest of you lot, either turn out your Sunday finest or let me see you beating a path back to whatever sorry stores or fields you toil in, and don't come back without something worth showing off.

Steam has begun offering refunds. Some will and advantage of this new policy, which has been applied in a universal fashion to a very diverse set of games that barely even merit that classification, in some cases. it won't be a perfect policy in any sense of the word, but it's a starting point.

We've played:

The Witcher 3


Duck Game

Dota 2

What if, hypothetically speaking, someone wanted to charge for mods? LOL, you say, what a preposterous idea! The short-sighted and entitled children of the internet, eternally cowering in fear change, would whine so loudly that even the deaf and immovable clouds would hear, and indeed, listen. Put that aside for a moment, however, and join us on a journey to the parallel existence known as A Few Days Last Week, where we will plumb the depths of such a dark era, and emerge shaken, as from a nightmare, only to find the dusty outline of a once present premium mods page haunting our digital distribution clients.

Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China

Heroes of the Storm

Elite: Dangerous

Diablo III

The Witcher

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor

Cities: Skylines

Cheaters. Cheating cheaters and the cheaters that cheat them. You all know the type. Can't finish Contra without the Konami code. Can't run de_dust2 without an aimbot or wallhack. Can't succeed in FFXI without the help of the CGFs. What drives them? What makes them tick? Why would you waste your time and effort just to get one over on the man, when the man is broken and busted mannequin from a 1980s Montgomery Ward department store? Why rail against the uncaring infinite black of Microsoft's dead Xbox Live servers just to put your mark at the top of the Cloning Clyde leaderboard?


Elite: Dangerous

Diablo III

Planetary Annihilation

Warcraft III

Castle in the Darkness

Divinity: Original Sin

I'm joined by our good friend Catie (@liedra) once more for a gigantic talk about all things Dragon Age, with detours into Elite, Fallout, The Witcher, Warcraft, Diablo, Star Trek, and The West Wing.

It's a meandering discussion heavy on the lore of all of the above. Enjoy it with your special Valentine, why don't you?
