Episode 250: The One with the Milestone

Palette-Swap Ninja / Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 / Outlast II

A look back at our 5 Years History.

It’s our milestone 250th episode and to celebrate, we take a look back at our 5 years reporting and talking about the gaming industry. We dive deep into all our past show notes and discover the fun stuff we talked about and some stuff that came and went in the blink of an eye. We’ve been doing this show for a wonderful 5 years, and hope to do it for another 5!

We also have a special interview with Dan Amrich, of Palette-Swap Ninja. Dan and his musical partner, Jude Kelly, recently released the result of their own epic 5 year journey: Princess Leia’s Stolen Death Star Plans, a Star Wars parody album set entirely to the music of The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. The album faithfully recreates every song on the album and tells the story of A New Hope in chronological Order. Listen to the album at palletswapninja.com or watch the entire Playlist on YouTube at bit.ly/starwarsbeatles.
