Teenage Bounty Hunters. Cheapy is getting old. Didn't we grow up watching Fast Times at Ridgemont High and other teen comedies? I found the show really funny and a smart satire of conservative culture. Fun bonus: The old bounty hunter they work with used to play Dwayne Wayne on A Different World. He did not age well.

Teenage Bounty Hunters creeped me out too, and I'm gay.  But, somehow, Buffy does not. I don't know why.  Maybe because it's not monsters they're hunting?

Wombat, Grounded is in Early Access. There is a TON more story content and environmental content coming.

Great show guys! Shipwreck saying words Ohio style is always great.

 

I'm shocked though that none of you seem to get what the Epic/Apple situation is really about - this is Epic trying to force an antitrust investigation into Apple. It's not about how much of a cut Apple gets, it's about the anti-competitive practices Apple uses in their App Store and Epic is trying to capitalize on the federal level investigations that are starting to break Apple. Think about the fact that what got Fortnite pulled was that they were telling people where they could go buy V-bucks cheaper. It's Miracle on 34th Street, only every single day and the store fired Santa.

 

Comparing Epic game store exclusives to Apple's monopoly on iPhones is asinine. When a game goes exclusive it's the game developer who chooses to restrict their market, they're the ones taking away player choice, not Epic. What Apple does is force you to sell everything through them and bans you from telling consumers they could get it cheaper somewhere else. It doesn't even make sense to talk about the fact that Microsoft operates the only store on Xbox because you can buy the game from Target, Best Buy, Walmart, Amazon, some guy on the corner of the street, etc. You can even buy codes for Xbox games from other retailers, Microsoft doesn't even limit digital sales to only through their store. And Microsoft doesn't prevent companies from directing you to use their website to sign-up for accounts.

Not sure if it was this episode, but Wombat lamented the lack of King of the Monsters on the Neo Geo mini machine. Is he hyped for GigaBash?  https://www.youtube....h?v=13QjUXCOLcU

Loving the twitch-stream of previous episodes. Being sheltered in place and never driving my car anymore, it's nice to be able to have you guys running in the background while working.

 

Way to pivot your model to the COVID times! :)
