Here we are again at episode number 12! Welcome back. Sadly, this week J3w3l was not feeling well, but I pushed on with our guests Welshtroll and Jaedia! We had a more light-hearted discussion because this past week has been rather difficult for gamers and the Internet, with #GamerGate and other issues. As such, we discussed some of our favorite video game characters: Heroes and Villains! We then talked about the Swatting phenomenon that has been recently highlighted in the media, and also took a look at Tobold’s blog, where he highlighted another blog, called the Steam Review Watch. Links for all of the above will be found below in the show notes. By the way, our iTunes link has changed, and if you wouldn’t mind submitting a review there, that would be awesome! Enjoy, and don’t forget to subscribe!
