We were at the Southern Fried Gameroom Expo and you weren't - we'll tell you everything you missed. The Shenmue 3 Kickstarter wasn't just a bad dream, it's still actually happening. We have an interview from MomoCon with Jeremy Handel of Handelabra Games about Sentinels of the Multiverse, a video game adaptation of a tabletop card game. Then we take calls about Fallout Shelter and E3.

We start off with some impressions from the Atlanta Virtual Reality Meetup that was still going on while we were doing the show - primarily demos from CCP Games, who were showing both Eve: Valkyrie and their Kinect 2.0 enabled "VR Labs" tech demos. But really, it's all about the 10 year anniversary of the show. We actually go back to the first three episodes of the show to see what we were talking about, and find out that either we have definitive answers or we're talking about the same stuff today. There's also reminiscing about the time Microsoft gave moneyhats during the launch of Halo 3. Then we take calls about the 10th Anniversary. Lots of them. Along with singing.
We were not live last week, but if we were, we would have covered the passing of Satoru Iwata. The show turns 10 years old on the day this episode is posted! Come celebrate on July 26th with us. A question is asked if there was ever any game purchase we regretted, and why. We have an interview from MomoCon of Jessie and Charlotte of C63 Industries about their puzzle-platformer shooter Pixel: Are You Squared? Rocket League has taken the PS4 fanbase by storm, and gamers are even forgiving of the massive server outages. Then we take a brief interrupted call from OLR about cookies.
This episode was recorded on July 5th - there was no show on July 12th due to medical issues, so there is discussion about Nintendo that does NOT reference what occurred on the 12th. The Mac version of Final Fantasy XIV has been pulled, with the developer metaphorically falling on his sword explaining why. Nintendo fans are petitioning to cancel Metroid Prime: Federation Force because they don't like the "transformation" of the franchise. We have an interview with Dennis Tsai of Blazing Orb about their Tetris-inspired fighting game Spaera. Then we take calls about Metroid Prime and cancelling games we don't like.
We start off with some clarifications about Shenmue 3's Kickstarter as provided by a listener on Twitter. Batman: Arkham City has been pulled from the PC stores because of its performance issues. Apple pulled apps that contained the Confederate Flag but then reinstated them after some tweaks were made. We have an interview with Ian Berridge of Psycho Vision Gaming about Retro Runner Remix, a flash game reminiscent of the games of my youth, only much harder. Then we talk to OLR about Fry's Electronics, which is totally not an ad.
