We’re flashing back to a holographic arcade title, Time Traveler from SEGA and take a reflective walk down memory lane with Apogee and touch on ROTT. We’ve got a light set of community comments and some good game news including:

If you’re looking to enter the World fo Warcraft writing contest, check it out here. Thanks for the write-in’s and, as always, we look forward to hearing more. Question of the week: Would you buy a game that sold you half of other titles in content and made you pay for the rest later in DLC form?

    In regards to the question of the week:

    I would hope I wouldn’t, as it really is quite insulting to the customer, but if it was a game I was really hanging out for (examples: Diablo 3, Starcraft 2, HalfLife 3 or the next FIFA game), I can imagine desire overcoming my better judgment. However it would servery alter my perception of the developer and future games they release. It would discourage me from purchasing further products from the same developer knowing that the game may be incomplete and not worth the price tag given to it.

    As a primarily PC gamer I guess I am fortunate with great developers such as Valve who continually give out major patches and content updates for free and modding/mapping communities that provide PC gamers with free content all the time. Hopefully this Content DLC package from Capcom wont start a trend as it is a disgrace to gamers that significant content ready at launch is held back to squeeze a few more dollars out of the loyal followers of that game.

    Thanks for another great podcast.
    (Sorry for my poor grammar in the last comment, it was late ^.^)

    Well, I already noted in the forum that I paid for the Lumines Live DLC, but Electronic Arts has taken it to a whole new level, taking out the price gouging gun and shoving it straight in your face.

    Apparently, Hasbro Family Game Night is a 235MB host to buy each of the games. Separately. For $10 each. Yes, you have to buy each game of the bundle that Wii and PS2 owners get for a single price. Considering there are going to be seven games, that means you’re going to be paying $70 for something that costs $20 on the PS2 and $37 on the Wii.

    No, seriously, Connect Four and Battleship for $10 each? Anyone who shells out $10 for Connect Four should be have their Xbox 360 confiscated and be placed under house arrest.
