Jon, Matt and Durrty come out of the woodwork for an encore performance on the Romcast. The Solid State Gamer entourage busts right into the allegations of Crytek's financial woes as well as the loss of two veterans from the Germany based development studio. Could this be the end for a proven company with a solid pedigree? Will the Homefront sequel be joystick compatible like the latest Podcast Creator Simulator? We consult our Eastern connection for more details into the business side of things and hypothesize what could be in store for both Crytek and ID Software (the benefactor of this defection).

After that, the three caballeros discuss the mega publishers and smaller players of the world and the notion of the slippery slope of success. Sheisty practices like hollow lawsuits, day one DLC, microtransactions, monopolistic tactics and other such offenses are exposed in this segment. Which publishers are the worst offenders? Tune in to find out.

Lastly, at the roundtable the crew looks back on the history of the home computer revolution and discuss how they came about and why they do not exist anymore. Closing it out strong there is fool talk about how Megarace is superior to Halo, the Megarace reboot that is totally happening and Jon's flashy blue corduroy Marty McFly vest.
