TKV Team Podcast 18 (beta) | “Out of Order”

This week’s discussion with Karol and Tim is a springboard of commentary on newer releases and reactions to critical panning, set over our observations of Karol’s current-gen Grand Theft Auto V play session. Which is mostly gawking at inconsequential details. In related news, the PC version of GTA V was pushed back to April. We briefly touch on patterns of socioeconomic decay and…layaway? Hopefully those bits will make more sense in context.

Things you may have missed for the week of Feb 16th 2015

Fourth and finally we had an Episode of Threats from Galifrey covering news, character death, and a round table on how to do some Lord of the Rings and make it feel like Middle Earth. Man were we busy.

Bonus asides on arcade machine ownership and airline terrorism in the 1970s.

A “gaming” podcast, mostly in name, for your aural pleasure. As you can imagine, recent changes have necessitated format changes, so feedback and/or recommendations are particularly encouraged.
