First of all, my apologies for not getting this up by at least yesterday. A Monday post wasn’t going to happen with the Abner Con wrap-up, plus the drive back to Indy. Yesterday? That just went by quick… and I lost $7 at poker. Considering it was a $10 buy-in, that’s awful. What is up with the universe?

Anyway, we have arrived at Episode #87 of Jumping the Shark. The countdown to 100 episodes begins soon! This week it’s just Brandon, Danielle, and I as Bill had some late-breaking lost key scenario that pulled him out at the last minute. Keys, man. Nothing but trouble. So, for this hour-long show Brandon and I spend a good chunk of time talking in more detail about Deus Ex (now that we’ve made some progress), Brandon adds some praise for Quarrel, and Danielle shows some love for Crazy Machines Elements and Rock of Ages. After that, the topic du jour is skill at playing games and why we’re better at them than you. (No, not really.)

    You guys suck at podcasting, this episode is invalid.

    It’s a viscous circle. You suck and playing games, and then you suck at the reviews your write about them, so when you do a podcast, you’re inevitably going to suck at that too.

    For my first run-through of DE:HR I went for a Stealth/Hacker/Non-Lethal build.

    I got fed up too trying to be a non-lethal ninja (especially during that fight with the first Assassain… grrrr…).

    The only advantage I see with non-lethal weaps is that (providing no one sees you) they are a TOTALLY silent first strike weap. The silenced pistol alerts the guy you didn’t drop first, losing the advantage of surprise.

    This time around I’m going to almost ignore Hacking, and try muscle my way through it all.

    Would you kindly post a link to the catalyst article of the topic du jour? I can’t seem to find it.

    Not exactly sure what a thick and sticky circle has to do with this conversation. (I apologize for the comment – truly I do… I swear I was an English professor and not a computer geek in another life)

    Everybody’s a critic.
