Episode 517: Audio Problems

October 18th, 2018 by jonahfalcon · No Comments

No GravatarUnfortunately, Skype decided that since Jonah’s webcam was connected, he wanted to use the webcam’s mic instead of the actual mic Jonah uses, making it sound like he’s in the next room talking to the others.

This week’s news includes:

  • Skybound Games will finish the final season of Telltale’s The Walking Dead
  • Star Citizen’s latest promise rakes in almost a million dollars
  • Blizzard denies Diablo: Reign of Terror is a BlizzCon leak
