Build 1.4 is probably live by the time you’re getting this episode. Tinkkz and Rem spend their time this week helping you make sense of the final build. There’s a whole lotta awesome going on and a couple of things we may not exactly be in love with. Missed State of the Game? We have a couple of highlights for you along with the Darkest Zone of them all: Chat of the Game.
Sorry it’s been a while since I made a show post, but to save some time and get caught up as efficiently as possible, I’m making this mega post, no show notes, no twitter notes, no drinks, no links. When season 2 starts we’ll be back to our normal posting patterns, and by that I mean sporadic and lazy.
Neo is out of town, so Toons has his pick of any co-hosts for the week. Any he could possibly think of. In lieu of this fact he decides to use The Unusual Fill-Ins consisting of a moogle and a ginger. Alright, one may not actually be a moogle. Mog and Remy pitch in on this weeks show talking some of Mog’s time spent with Blizzard titles of yore. There’s a lot of discussion on the future of Overwatch as a franchise and possibly even a blockbuster movie. The sky is seemingly the limit for Blizzard Entertainment and we love the hell out of them. We apologize for the unusual format with our unusual fill-ins but hope you enjoy! Don’t forget to send us in your mails regarding the world of Blizzard, we’ll make sure to answer them on the show. See you next time.
It’s a ginger trifecta! Tinkkz, Toons and Rem talk about the finer points of vaping while playing The Division. Alright, we’re not really talking about vaping. We are talking The Division though. With Patch 1.4 coming out and no real finality in the build, we’re taking time out to explain what has been going on. These topics include things we have enjoyed seeing, some questionable changes as far as diffculty and overall general excitement. We got all the phat cloud related news you could vape for along with braving through the darkest zone of all: Chat of the Game! Ever wonder what Faye-Faye Lau’s online handle would be? Us too! GL HF!

Tinkkz, Monk and Rem talk about what you should be looking forward to a little more this week. We’ve been checking out the PTS on your behalf and let you know what we think so far. While the PTS is still going strong – the second stage turbine blade of changes are now live and we pick highlights thus far to fill you with knowledge. Like those checkpoints that went missing because Tinkkz willed them out of existence. Chat of the Game this week looks at a special moment between two men on the internet that share a winky face moment. It’s a way better love story than The Notebook. We also have your agent stories, e-mail questions and more! GL HF! Link for PTS Week 2 Patch Notes.

(Originally recorded on September 25th, 2016) The forces of hell are rising space marine grab your trusty shotgun and go to work because you are Doomguy. Or you can take a break from shooting demons and start randomly pushing every wall hoping they will open for you because you’re a completionist. Doom is important for a lot of us as gamers. Alex gets to go deep on one of his favorite video game franchises and it’s not only because of his love for all things Satan. We discus how the “Doom clone” was the FPS of the 90’s and the way the first two entries of the franchise shaped the largest genres in video games. Such Doom. Very Demons. Many Yays.
We are missing our co-host Colin so we put Crytogeekology on hold and play a fun game connecting the man crush of all our hosts to our show subject in “Six Degrees of Ryan Gosling”
Destiny 2, Vivendi, and Xbox Live Arcade Recorded on Thursday, September 29, 2016. The Mules are back from a short break, refreshed and renewed! Fall is in the air, and the climate in the game industry may be taking a turn as well. Read (and listen!) on to investigate along with us. Enter our current contest for the opportunity to win a digital copy of Gears of War 4 Ultimate Edition here! First up, Ubisoft dodges a bullet from Vivendi, the national corporation that’s been eyeing up the game company for a while now. Vivendi lost shares in Activision Blizzard a couple years ago, and may be trying to break back into the game industry in a big way. How long can Ubisoft avoid a hostile takeover from its French neighbors? Recent negative reviews for ReCore beg the question: Should Xbox Live Arcade make a comeback? Are independent tiles judged too harshly in a sea of AAA games? New leaks may have sprung up from a recent meeting within Bungie’s domain. The Mules dish on what seems to be a fairly solid confirmation of Destiny 2 coming to PC. The source of the leak also shared some additional details regarding our favorite space shooter looter including future destinations for Destiny 2. #wordonthetweet submissions vary wildly this week. We discuss Destiny’s latest expansion, Rise of Iron, and whether it and other titles will stand the test of time. Video game books come into play, Battlefield 1 is discussed, and we humor the idea of turning our favorite IPs into new video games.

***FLASH*** National treasure stolen from New York. The treasure has been identified as the Statue of Liberty’s torch. Male suspect reported at the scene of the crime. Your assignment: Track the thief from New York to his hideout and arrest him! You must apprehend the thief. Good luck, rookie!
Colin leads the chase down memory lane to find out what has made the Carmen Sandiego franchise so successful for all these years. A trailblazer in edutainment, WITWICS began teaching kids history and geography lessons via clever crime cases. The concept from the original video game was then taken to the living room in gameshow form and introduced the world to the one and only Rockapella. The guys cover everything from the original productions, plus the slew of extensions in Ms. Sandiego’s stash.
The episode closes with Jamie masterminding a Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego version of Cryptogeekology. You might be surprised who comes out on top.
Oh, boy… hope you like 3 nerds talking about The Division and MANY OTHER THINGS! We are Tinkkz, Lady and Rem And this is Bombshell Jackets, and if this is your only news source for the Division, God bless your little soul. If you are looking for a quick run down of the Dev/Patch Notes, and 4.5 hour special report, this is not the episode for you. If you are looking for a silly and hopefully informative look at all of those things with constant derailment, this is exactly the episode for you. But, hey, you’re used to it. (It’s worse this week, but we don’t get any negative feedback about it, so we are forced to believe you like it!) Anyway! 1.4 PTS is underway, and one of us has played it. One of us will also drop a bomb at the beginning of the episode, but just keep in mind:
As we go on we remember
All the times we had together
And as our lives change
We will still be
With all the info we skip emails and stories this week, but we do give you the darkest zone of them all: Chat of the game. Also, our giveaway winners. GL;HF We love you, and RIP Lady.
