A portion of this show was very last minute. Like, 15 minutes to air there was an idea and we went with it.

This episode was recorded on the 50th anniversary of the Apollo moon landing. And we’re all very big fans of that and space exploration in general so to mark the occasion we play an interview done in 2008 with one of only 12 men ever in the history of all mankind to set foot on the moon, Charlie Duke. It has absolutely no ties to video games whatsoever, but we don’t care. And we hope you don’t either. As was said back then:

None of us on the show can really express what it was like to talk with Mr. Duke or even have him on the show. It is an experience not a single one of us will ever forget. He tells us of his experience with NASA and his time spent on the moon as well as traveling to it plus his return to Earth. What is it like to re-enter Earth’s atmosphere? What’s it like to stand within such a magnificent desolation? To see the dark side of the moon and to witness an Earth-rise. Charlie Duke tells us of those things along with many others (cosmic rays penetrating the eyeballs, anyone?).

 

You know, I have a Switch. Had one since launch. It does everything the Switch Lite does and more. But here I am, kind of itching for the Lite. I don’t know if it’s just the new tech bug that usually bites me or if this is a legit desire to have something more dedicated to handheld gaming. Whatever the case, I have until September the 20th to talk myself out of it.

Which shouldn’t be too hard after our discussion of new PC hardware near the end of this episode. I’m still good for most of my equipment, but these CPU wars are something I haven’t seen in a long time. And AMD seem to be killing it right now. So, there’s the itch for that although the price jumps a bit when I consider how much will have to be thrown into the mix for just upgrading a CPU – no different really than any other time I’ve done it, honestly.

All of this really seems to be fine considering the amount of new gaming I won’t be doing come the fall and winter months. If E3 told us anything, it was that the new stuff you want to play is coming next year.

If none of it gets delayed, of course.

 

We keep adding to the cast count here and we’re going to need a bigger room. At the very least, more mics would be nice.

It’s been a long holiday weekend here in the states so while we had some news to cover we mainly get reacquainted with some folks who hadn’t been on the show in years. Finding out what they’ve been playing and what we’ve been playing lately as well.

This is essentially how this show was ever started in the first place. Just random conversations on gaming. No central topic or some planned discussion. As weekly regulars we do this list of news to go over some of the aspects of what happened during the week, but when we get together with friends we haven’t seen in years, it’s just discussion of games and how we’ve either enjoyed or disliked what we’ve played.

Enjoy this random bit of natural conversation.
