I finally came back from Uzbekistan, and a new episode was recorded!

In the episode, we talk about Rift (surprise, surprise!), Magicka: Vietnam and the iPad 2, as well as a bunch of other things related to it all. Good times were had, of course. Here are a few things that we mentioned along the way!

Arkenor, over at Ark’s Ark, has a blog post about EQ2 Aether Racing, and here it is:

Petter mentioned the video The Terrible Secret of Space, so here it is:

And, of course, my old favorite, Happy in Paraguay, by The Dayjob Orchestra:


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.
