  • 0:00 – Intro, which features the awesome YouTube collection that Huell refers to on the show.
  • 1:02:30 – Emails! What IS Q-Bert anyway?
  • 1:17:00 – Snifferoo. Maybe we’ll actually play a certain game next week…


– The first three Warcraft games are often available in a “battle chest” edition for modern systems that runs from $10 to $20 new. It can be dicey to buy used copies though, given that Blizzard can be sticklers for authentication codes.

– On the show, we talk briefly about Titan, an ambitious MMORPG that was cancelled by Blizzard despite years of work because it didn’t meet their high-quality standards. Kotaku has an impressive story on the issues of the game here, which sounds ambitious for now, nevermind a few years ago.

– A past episode was about StarCraft! If you missed us talking about that Blizzard game, go here!

– Q*bert is awesome! Here he is.

– You can watch the South Park episode “Make Love Not Warcraft” on the show’s website for free.
