49 mins - Published Mon, Nov 21, 2011 by Arkenor Oakshadow, Breki Tomasson and Petter Mårtensson

We found some time between playing our new and fantastic games and recorded a podcast for you, our loyal listeners.

Here are some things you may want to know about this week’s episode.

  • Petter is enjoying Assassin’s Creed: Revelations.
  • There’s some concept art that look like they might be thinking Egyptian for the next Assassin’s Creed game.
  • Breki just got hold of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, limited edition with golden controller!
  • Arkenor just wrote a scathing post about Blizzard’s use of Chuck Norris in their latest World of Warcraft advertisements.
  • Optimus Prime – The Touch. Aw, yeah.


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.
