It's been eight long, long years since Dreamfall was released; and considering how that game ended, it's been a hell of a wait. As a fan whose expectations started high, and only escalated with time, it's been a surreal experience stepping foot in this world again.
This week, Matt, Moo, Ryan, Sean, and Jen discuss abandoned games - that is to say, games that we started and never finished. Why does this happen? Which games did we give up on? Will Moo make inappropriate jokes? Probably, but tune in to find out for sure!
Mike Tyson's Mysteries: too stupid to succeed? Is cashing in on a washed-up and disgraced boxer a little low, even by adult swim's standards? Is it a good idea to have an eleven-minute Venture Brothers clone that happens to feature Mike Tyson, his adopted Asian daughter, an obscure historical figure, and a pigeon?
Proving once again that literally no matter what you do somebody will get pissed off about it, the USPS managed to poke the seething nest of harsh words and recriminations that is the stamp collecting community. The stick they poked it with? a batarang. That’s right, the highest authority on stamp collecting in the country is up in arms because the USPS has decided to put out a limited edition of Batman stamps to commemorate the character’s 75th anniversary.
Here there be rumors, spoilers, and possibly illegal information. Tread lightly and get your grains of salt ready because an extra risked a reported $5 million dollar breech of nondisclosure agreement lawsuit to bring us this information. Was he a Bothan? Maybe.

We're switching it up this week with a triple-header of short story adventures! Step with us into Julius Caesar's sandals and try not to get assassinated. Then grab your ball gown for a Victorian-era journey through Pride and Prejudice. Then help us save a cat planet by overthrowing its evil dictator.
Avatar: The Legend of Korra, Book 4: Change may be the last animated entry into one of the best television shows of the past decade. In honor of this milestone, Channel Surfer is providing a retrospective on each Avatar season, from starting the original series to the latest. This is meant to be an overview for Avatar veterans, and hopefully an introduction for anyone interested in the show. This week we end the original series with The Last Airbender, Book 3: Fire.
In a fantastic gesture that we all needed, user EsquirebobAnimations has produced a parody of Mulan’s “I’ll Make a Man Out of You” that is indeed worth blasting off again, combining Mulan, Digimon, and Pokemon.
Shinji Mikami, the guy who brought us the original Resident Evil, is returning to horror games later this month with The Evil Within. If you can't wait that long to get your horror fix on though, we've got 9 games to keep you up at night while you wait.
We all had that kid we were friends with who was a little, or maybe a lot, better off than us. They seemed to have the nicest stuff. They never seemed to worry about things we worried about, and they always seemed to have an uncle who had an exciting job that afforded them access to magical and exotic goods. This being a game we're talking about, of course it would be The Uncle Who Works For Nintendo.
