Nice, sounds like a very gaming focused episode, which is cool for this time of year since I usually have more gaming time.

Did anyone else play those games for the 1st segment or is it all you?  I'm assuming that you're the only one with a PS4.

Can't wait for the Dell Venue Pro discussion!  I really don't need to be dropping any more megabucks on a tablet, but the Black Friday deals is callin' my name.  If I can't abuse the Gamestop B2G1 deal to get a WiiU for $120, then I will almost certainly pull the trigger on the Venue Pro.

Just as a heads up, the Dell Venue Pro 8" is already $230 at Wal-Mart.  Not sure if they are doing anything with it on Black Friday, but that's $70 off the regular price.

Au contraire, you do have at least one German listener.  :-*

The revelation that there's only a couple gigabytes of storage space on the 32GB Venue Pro 8 was a total bonerkill -- thanks Doug!  :(

X-Com: Terror from the Deep changes a few things that makes it strategically more interesting. Minor details like having the standard rifle becoming useless unless it's submerged and adding an early powerful melee weapon makes it a fun alternative to the original game. Frag is completely right about the cruise ship terror missions though. A single mission could take a couple of hours to finish and I often ended up skipping them completely.

This.

I've been semi-following Grim Dawn since the minute it was announced way back because I loved TQ. That said, I am also worried because like you guys said.. they are WAY behind in this game and even after the Kickstarter and Early Access there doesn't seem to be an end in sight to the development of this game.

I am crossing my fingers and hoping that they do manage to finish it because I will give them my money as soon as there is a finished product on Steam.

From the way the beta plays right now, it looks like they've got all the basic systems in place and working almost perfectly. The main thing they need to do now is crank out more content.

They'll need to add new assets n shit for higher level gear, too.  Like I said, I'm pretty sure we'll get another act and class at least but not hopeful for the long term prospects of the game.
