I am really not sure how this one went under my radar.  I am also really not sure how radar works.  Perhaps I shoud lower my radar a bit?  Anyhow, just in case your radar is also calibrated at such an altitude where things might pass under it, you should head over to KickStarter and

These days, we hear about upcoming games really early, too early.  If a game reveal strikes our fancy, we sometimes have to wait years to actually play it outside of a showroom floor.  Usually, when we hear about a great new game, it doesn’t even have a release date; it just exists in a hypothetical,

Ordering Titanfall and then later finding out it features monsters was like ordering chili-cheese fries and then later finding out they feature blowjobs.  “Titanfall has Monsters??!!” read the first text I received, alerting me to the subject.  Hurriedly, I scampered to open the internets, my eager hands fumbling with the keys.  Could it really be

WhatsJumpPodcastFeatImg

  It’s the inaugural episode of the podcast, so you can’t really say we are rusty.  After all, products don’t ship with rust.  “That car looks great Johnson, but it’ll never sell like this.  Rust it!!!”  We cover all the news from this week, including Microsoft’s take backsies on DRM, Nintendo thinking they are still
