The following topics were discussed:

  • Cryptic sold to Perfect Worlds by Atari.
  • APB Reloaded – new and improved or same old?
  • OMG TUPAC IS ALIVE!!! … At least if you believe PBS, who were hacked with fake story about Tupac and Biggie.
  • Transformers: Dark of the Moon. What a stupid title. Dark WHAT of the moon?
  • Death Rally is a great game.
  • Age of Conan going Free and Unrated
  • New Winged Mount Thing in World of Warcraft. OMG OMG OMG MUST BUY NEW SHINIES.


Claims of the Normal

Claims of the Normal was the first show to launch on the CSICON Network. Originally intended as the only show to run on the website csicon.org (the 'con' in CSICON stands for Claims of the Normal, after all), it quickly became the launch vehicle for so much more. Breki and Petter started the show, and got Arkenor on board, and it all just went from there.

The show, over time, was replaced by The MMOsketeers, starring Petter, Arkenor and Teppo, as well as Instanews, starring Breki and Jack. None of these shows exist in their original form, but the legacy created by Claims of the Normal lives on.
