Jumping the Shark Podcast #203

No High Scores Podcast Logo

This week on JtS, Brandon and I swap crime stories. Brandon takes to the world of Thief and comes away unimpressed with its nefarious arts. Meanwhile, upon logging into my Blizzard account, I find out why crime doesn’t pay, even though I haven’t touched it in a year or so. Along the way we spend time discussing Bravely Default and other 3DS JRPGs, reminiscing about Harold Ramis, and learning about why WiFi and Bluetooth hate each other. (Spoiler warning, Blizzard did grant me my Diablo 3 access back the day after we recorded.)

Todd Brakke

Todd was born in Ann Arbor with a Michigan helmet in one hand and a mouse in the other. (Never you mind the logistics of this.) He grew, vertically anyway, and proceeded to spend over 16 years as a development editor for Pearson Education, publishing books, videos, and digital learning products under the Que and Sams Publishing imprints. Because that wasn't enough of a challenge, Todd has also been a 20-year part-time snob about video games, writing reviews, features, and more for multiple outlets.

  1. I note this at the very end of the podcast, but Mitch got stuck in GDC-prep duties and couldn’t make it. Very likely we’ll get him on for the next one. That or he’s doing a whole Charlie Brown/Lucy with the football thing and we just haven’t caught on yet.

  2. *Todd reading his tablet*
    *Kids come in*
    Kids: Dad, do you know where the Xbox One is?
    *Todd puts the tablet on his lap*
    Todd: Yes
    Kids: Well where is it?
    Todd: I must have left it at Uncle Brandon’s house
    Kids: That’s not fair! It’s partly ours and we want to play it!
    Todd: Huh…sucks doesn’t it
    *Goes back to reading tablet*

    annnnd scene.

    Also, furloughs suck. We had one last year a few months after a round of massive layoffs (telling us it was to avoid more massive layoffs). Two weeks ago? More massive layoffs. Being an adult sucks.
