Awaiting you on this week’s Jumping the Shark, it’s a whole lot of court intrigue as Bill dons a crown for Crusader Kings 2 and changes world history. If you were ever curious to know how King Harald of Norway could have erased England from the map, this is your show. If you never wanted to know how that might’ve happened, then you need to take some time to yourself and really think about your place in the world and why you lack an inquisitive nature. Just say’n. But, hey, if it’s just not gonna happen for you with this game then Brandon’s got you covered with tons of thoughts on the new Mass Effect 3 demo. We also spend some time making fun of the ridiculous amount of DLC items in the game. Good times.
On a couple of quick house-keeping notes: As Brandon noted on the show, the ever-overworked Danielle is officially taking a hiatus from the podcast. You’ll still be able to read her voice here at the site, but for the time being you’ll have to live with JtS being a Brandon, Bill, and Todd affair. We are all very sad. Also, since we’re no longer a Gameshark podcast, and my editing time isn’t compensated, Brandon has stepped up in a big way by volunteering to edit the show every other week. He’s a real peach, that guy. (Seriously. Editing the show nearly every single weekend for two years wears on you, so Brandon allowing me a weekend off every other week is a godsend that’ll help keep the ball rolling.) This is important to note for this week’s show because I put in an outtake from last week’s recording that Brandon didn’t have access to. I probably should have left it to the disappear into the ether, but I liked it too much. So, when you hear references to Diablo 3 in the outtakes, take your mind back to episode #110. It’ll all make sense.
As always, enjoy the show!
