- Gearbox Software and their passion for making games such as Aliens: Colonial Marines.
- Kickstarter and why it shouldn't suck.
- The Ouya, accompanied by Rocco and his videos about it.
- LOTS of Google discussion, including Google+ and why we think it might be a social network... subtraction. (Hah)

- Google Glass, and mobile device privacy concerns.
- Microsoft, their priorities, and downright-hilarious policy 180s.
- Windows 8 and the Surface.
- Rareware and Microsoft's apparently careless management.
- Our GOTY thoughts and disappointments, including BioShock Infinite and Warframe.
- Bitcoins! Including a very abstract and possibly downright wrong description of how bitcoin mining works.
- Valve and what the hell they might be up to, or not, as the case may be - including Half Life 3 and its potential for Duke-Nuking itself.
- Nintendo Directs, and the future of E3 spectacle-announcements.
