It does say something about imaginary money dwarves, so I think we're in for it yet.

Looking at the time stamps I was hoping for more games talk but I'll take whatever Cruncheons I can get :)

We're all kinda, I don't know if "burnt out" is the right term when it come to games... maybe "meh."

I still play games, I just don't have a lot of time. When I do have time I'm usually playing BF4. No one wants to hear about BF4 on every show, though. I tested a bunch of games on my Windows tablet, but I doubt it would be interesting to listen to unless you had that particular tablet.

By the time we do the next show inFamous SS will have been out, so at least I'll have one new game to bitch about :lol

Doug was fucked up on cough syrup.

:yeshrug

BUT THE SHOW MUST GO ON.

I think we're gonna talk about music on an upcoming episode. Not that we value your input (ok, we do, but I'm a dick) but what other shit would you guys like to hear about besides games n tech?

I agree with what Triumph was saying.  There are so many more avenues for entertainment but our spare time has not been changing with it.  The average gamer 10 years ago had TV (which wasn't as good, which was pointed out), movies, and video games.  Now you have social media sites, TV (which is going through a renaissance), Netflix/Hulu/Amazon Video, messing around on your iOS/Android device (whether that includes games or not), and video games.  It's just a smaller space that video games have to compete in.  Combine that with out of control AAA budgets and it's easy to see why the industry is where it is now.
