This week’s episode has a lot of tangential videogame news, but the discussions turn in interesting directions. No Gaming Flashback or Gaming History unfortunately.

The news includes:

  • Microsoft announces Windows 10
  • Ms Pac-Man joins the fight against breast cancer
  • Facebook apologizes to LGBTQ users, plans “substantive changes”
  • PS Vita firmware 3.30 launches soon, brings theme support
  • The Sims 4 free content updates to include pools, Star Wars costumes

No Question of the Week either – just ask us anything.

    Hey guys,
    I haven’t written in for a while because you failed to speak bad of Vita all these weeks 🙂 the moment I heard Jonah flip flop on what media devices the Vita uses I knew I had to straighten it out (too bad about Jordan). Oh, there’s also work but I guess that’s a minor thing 🙂

    The Vita uses cards and is still a great platforms with many great games. I just got the platinum trophy in Velocity 2X, which is just an amazing shoot’em up/platformer game. I wonder if it could break your dislike of the device…

    I also haven’t been writing in because I didn’t feel I had much to add on the subject of the recent news items. However, the Windows 10 news is quite interesting. The reason they gave for skipping a number is great. Way to go with consistent naming, Microsoft! I’ve been using Windows since Win95 and they pretty much stick to the pattern of having every second system be terrible, as if they had two dev teams and one of them had no idea what they were doing. I bought a Win8.1 laptop recently (no touch) and I found it very hard to navigate through my apps. The Metro design sucks for mouse-operated devices and it’s not that intuitive for touch either.

    Let me end with a little ‘about me’ section so that maybe Paul remembers me next time. We share the first name, after all 🙂 I’m 29, fonished college years ago and I’m trying to do a PhD in electronics/computer science. I also work for a startup which will one day be sold for… ONE MILLION DOLLARS (puts pinky in mouth).

    Coming back to tje topic of Vita, my question to you guys. Which handhelds have you owned / do you own and enjoy a lot? Explain why 3DS is better than the Vita without using the words or phrases Link, Zelda, ‘the legend of’, ocarina 🙂

    Cheers,
    Pawel
