Another Sunday, another podcast. Strangely enough; we didn’t launch into yet another discussion about LulzSec in the beginning of this episode. More important things were at hand!

First up, the end of Star Wars Galaxies is at hand, and not many people are too pleased about it. Petter, for sure, isn’t.

Also, controversies abound in EVE Online, and our resident EVEologist – Petter again, really – has some choice words on the matter. In fact, he has quite a lot of choice words on the matter. He yammered on about it for so long that I went and took a picture of myself podcasting while waiting for him to be done. No, really, Petter, no hard feelings? Still buddies? After that, we talked about the philosophy of buying in-game items for money, and Arkenor and I got into a bit of a difference of opinion, but I think we managed to get out of it with our friendship intact. Arkenor, no hard feelings? Still buddies?

Quiz Kids up next; where we had questions from Jon Broadley and Skorpion352. Great fun was had, and I’ve learned that I should probably work on my Charlie Sheen impression to make this more fun in the future.

Also, LulzSec are disbanding. Yay; I suppose. Weird.

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 (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.
