IC 31: Unwanted Songs and Cut Scenes

News of Telltale Games shutting down leads to questions about their production model, original IP, and stories of overworked developers. Randolf has lots to say about Spiderman on the PS4, and Michael tried the Black Ops 4 battle royale mode a while back. That plus a GIBI with great streaming TV, some weird Twitter videos, and even weirder Reddit threads.

IC 30: Twitter and Other Birds

Michael’s having a reflective moment about his Twitter usage. When is this often frustrating platform actually good for us to use? And when should we reconsider using it? Randolf keeps finding this weird, clever moments on Reddit threads. Lots of games TV/movies we’ve seen lately, plus a slew of fascinating subreddits, mostly about birds and nostalgia.
