We’ve got a special guest with a special project this week. Tony Mast, of Back Seat Producers fame (and he of the old-school Top Ten), joins us to talk about Sausage Fest. The Holmberg went to Sausage Fest last year, and it was a blast, plus it raised a nice chunk of change for the breast cancer fight. There’s actual planning and intention going into this year’s Fest, so an event that couldn’t be more awesome will be more awesome. The IndieGoGo campaign is still going for a few days more, and even though the campaign is technically funded, any money over what’s needed to run the event seeds the final donation we send to that breast cancer campaign we can’t name without specific permission, so we encourage you to donate if you can.
Tony sticks around for the rest of the episode, and drops some knowledge about Populous and Greedy Spiders. Jonathan’s been re-exploring Saint’s Row 2, has been confused by No More Heroes: Heroes’ Paradise, and has whacked some zombies in the face in Dead Island. Sam has finished Deus Ex: Human Revolution, and has been enjoying Space Marine and Dead Island. Due to the short time between recordings, Alex hasn’t played anything new.
In our topic, we continue our Seven Deadly Sins Series with Gluttony. Jonathan targets Google, Alex throws stones at EA, Sam points fingers at the Madden series, and Tony brings an RTS twist to the topic.
Finally, we have a three-way Name That Game! Tony makes a valiant effort to dethrone the hosts, and succeeds with one of them.
Finally, we ask Tony to pick our next sin. Pride goeth before a fall, and cometh in next week’s episode.
