This episode brings the hate, sarcasm and skepticism in all that is gaming news. We’re also super charged with a gaming flashback on Autoduel and the history of Origin Systems, Inc. But, what really brings it all together is the news of the week:

This week’s question of the week is quite simple: any board games that need to be re-created as a video game?

    Question of the week – No. No more board games converted to video games. Seriously, they don’t work. Apart from how unplayble they can end up (as Derrick explained with Chess) what about the cost. Surely a DS game (lets face it, thats where its headed) is going to cost 2-3 times more than it would cost to just buy the board game in the first place. Sure you don’thave to worry about losing vital pieces, but are you going to pass the DS around the table one person at a time, or sit and talk, drink, and generally laugh at stupid people making mistakes?

    nope its well explored and i’d rather play chess on a real board….. unless its hologram chess =[). Oh i got a good memory of playing monopoly with some friends. One friend in fact was like a saint and had never said a sinful word in her life….. until i sucked her in a trade then took all her properties and her money and she like verbally abused me. it was so funny …lolz

    I agree with Onyersix, board games are ment to be played as they were initially created. Although, how cool would it be to play Chess on Natal? One step closer to Holograms…
