In this episode, we have a special guest: Mike from Bear Swarm. We discuss why edition wars and hating on games in discussions is a pointless endeavor and why people endlessly flame each other over them. We also talk about Catalyst Game Labs and of course, Tom has a letter.

Shout Outs:

  • Triangle: A great horror film that is better the less you know about it before you watch it.
  • Pandemic: A board game about stopping a global pandemic. You usually fail.
  • Imaginary Monsters: A web comic about monsters and dungeons.
  • Poo: A card game about monkeys flinging poo.
  • Casshern: The live action Japanese 2007 sci-fi flick. Crazy effects and nonsensical plot.
  • MD Geist: Ultra violent 80s anime that features gamer logic.
  • Iron Tyrants: ROBOT SMASHING FIGHTING TIME
  • Sin Titulo: Eisner nominated web comic. Very creepy and a great read.

Music: Cataclysmic Crash by Game Over.

We might have talked about it before, but for those Supernatural fans we’ve got something special for you guys. Turns out, Matt’s dad is a… rug… guy… I’m not sure what the technical name is. Regardless, the guy deals with rugs, doormats, and that sort of stuff. After we got Matt hooked on Supernatural, he got his mom and dad hooked too. Really, it was only a matter of time before this happened:

That’s right, its a Devil’s Trap Doormat. You want to get your hands on one of these bad boys? Cruise your browser over to Specialtydoormats.com and place your orders! Their look wicked awesome. We all have one. They are epic.

UPDATE: Devil’s Trap Rugs!
Why were weren’t informed of these sooner, I’ll never know. Still, better late then never to cruise your browser over to Specialtydoormats.com and put in an order!
