Xadara GameChat – September 7th, 2014

Here is the Xadara GameChat for September 7th, 2014. This episode had quite a bit to cover, and I was rather tired while recording, but it seems Watercress enjoyed it.

I had originally posted this under the title “September 24th” which is immpossible considering it’s only the 9th at the time of me editing this. I blame working on something like this at 3AM.

This episode went serious towards the end, but it was a topic we wanted to cover. Otherwise, this is much more ranting than I expected, so I am not all that fond of this episode – Still, I think we covered some interesting topics.

Show notes below:
