It’s the triumphant 3rd year birthday for Jumping the Shark and to celebrate we’ve done nothing special other than make sure we’re all here. Whoo.
The gang is all in the house for Jumping the Shark #161 and we wile away our hour together by talking about Bill’s latest foray into Risk: Legacies and Brandon DudeBro’s up for a little Black Ops 2 and a side plate of Little Inferno on the iPad. I put on my best book reviewer’s hat (it looks rather like one of those multicolor beanie deals with a propeller on top) and do a couple minutes on Markus Zusak’s WW2 era novel, The Book Thief (coming, eventually, to a theater near you, if the news I read this week is accurate). It’s all prelude to next week when Jon Shafer makes his triumphant return to the show to talk about his new gaming venture, Conifer Games, and it’s first game, At the Gates, which launched its Kickstarter campaign today. It’s Shafer, people, so go Kickstart the hell out of it.
