KBMOD Podcast – Episode 265
The normal cast returns this week to talk about NFL overtime rules and everyone’s favorite pastime: bowling. In the news, Steam plans to remove Greenlight in favor of a more direct distribution model, and Gabe hints that Steam will likely bring back paid mods at some point, E3 is opening up to the public for the first time, and the NBA is starting up an esports league for NBA 2K. In the quick hits, AMD confirms that Windows 7 will have no Ryzen drivers, Overwatch is getting a server browser, World of Warcraft tokens can now be converted to Battle.net currency, Call of Duty is returning “back to its roots,” and Activision Publishing lays off about 20 staff.
New video game releases include For Honor, Sniper Elite 4, and some promising indie titles such as an adventure with a bird eavesdropping on a city rife with political turmoil, a beautiful and atmospheric 2D adventure, and a dark comedy/horror game from the developer of the static speaks my name.
In the viewer questions, we debate whether guacamole can be considered fruit salad, discuss the best way to eat chicken, and share our go-to dishes to prepare for a date. Last up, we end with an iTunes review from one Captain Hodes, who delivers a message to us in a uniquely cryptic fashion.
