Dragon Con is this weekend, and a lot of VOG people are on a lot of panels. Come say hi! We have some first impressions of Diablo 3 on PS4, which we played before PSN was taken down and bomb threats were issued to airplanes. Flappy Bird creator Dong Nguyen's next game Swing Copters came out, and it didn't take long for a bunch of knockoffs to appear. PlayStation Home has been foreclosed on in Asia (staying open in US and Europe) - what should happen to people who bought virtual items and are now PlayStation Homeless? Then we take calls about PlayStation Home and Diablo 3.

I will be at SIEGE in Atlanta on October 3-5, doing another panel about virtual reality. Come say hi! Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy: Curtain Call was released for the 3DS, and it is awesome if you like Final Fantasy and music games - but it does negate needing the first game. At Oculus Connect, a new VR prototype was unveiled - the Crescent Bay prototype - which joins the HD Prototype and Crystal Cove as stepping stones to another publicly available HMD. Unity announced that the Oculus Rift will become an official deployment target in Unity 4 and 5, which means that you no longer need to purchase a Unity Pro license to create VR experiences. The sale of Mojang to Microsoft was finalized, and Notch is indeed leaving Mojang - because of people like me. Then we take calls about Crazy Chocobos and if there were game-breaking bugs in cartridge-based games that couldn't be patched.
Destiny and the Smash Bros 3DS demo were released this week, and there are impressions of both which may surprise you. At the time of recording, Microsoft was rumored to be purchasing Mojang for $2.5 billion. Then we take calls about Minecraft, Smash Bros 3DS, and stolen lanyards.
Dragon Con was last week in Atlanta, and there were a few video gaming things going on - I talk about the EverQuest Landmark panel and the hour with Lord British. Samsung has partnered with Oculus to bring Gear VR to the Galaxy Note 4. One of the original developers of the Bukkit open source project, which are mod tools for Minecraft multiplayer servers, has issued a DMCA takedown of Bukkit and related projects until Mojang open sourcaces the Minecraft server. Then we take calls about The New 3DS, the non-existent PAX boycott (from a surprise caller!), and a wholly incorrect prediction about server stability on September 9th.
Monday morning at 11:30AM, after everyone has checked out of their hotels and are battling hangovers, Bobby Blackwolf, Rob Roberts, and John from Critical Myth convince people how to get people to participate with their podcasts and not just listen. (This is not a video game podcast, but rather a panel about podcasting. Normal content will resume next week!)
