This action-packed news episode of the podcast has been in the chamber for a few hours now, and it’s ready to hit your earwaves with a gangsta style hit of current events! Valve changes the face of digital retail, Microsoft folds their brick-and-mortar stores, Tencent muscles in on Twitch, and several games are getting adaptations. Plus, we cover new releases, and have an impromptu and deep discussion about the latest Web 2.3.4.0 happenings, and it’s Christopher Nolan movies. (no joke).

Intro: “Calling” – The World Ends With You, by Takeharu Ishimoto
Outro: “Whirling Cafeteria (Day)” – Disco Elysium, by British Sea Power

Game Bytes :: June 24, 2020 :: The Buridan’s Ass of Sidequests

This week we get a little philosophical about the nature of sidequests and how much work and ethics are involved therein. LeGrande goes back to Assassin’s Creed Odyssey to lament the overabundance of “pretty good” sidequests on the game’s map. But how can he choose? Dale has gotten into Destiny 2, and a little bit of The Horus Heresy: Legions. Jeremy traversed the deserts and savannahs of northern Africa in the pre-WWII nazi-fighter, Pathway.

Intro: “Main Theme” – Pathway, by Gavin Harrison
Outro: “The Court of Savath√Ľn” – Destiny 2 Season of Arrivals, by Michael Salvatori & Skye Lewin, Josh Mosser, Michael Sechrist, Rotem Moav and Pieter Shlosse
