Jeff and Christian welcome cartoonist and Acquisitions Inc member, Scott Kurtz, of PvP Online and Table Titans fame, to the show this week. He is buzzing about the Wizards of the Coast news, both their announcement of an official release date for D&D Next, and their copyright infringement lawsuit against Cryptozoic Entertainment. Christian is all riled up over the Kinect being de-bundled from the Xbox One, and Jeff is interested in YouTubve reportedly buying Twitch for $1 billion. Plus there is the Halo 5 news, Gold no longer required for Xbox Live streaming services, and more in a very full Story of the Week segment.
The E3 Hype Train continues along apace, as the guys consider the possibility of "megaton" announcements.
In the Playlist, Scott is hooked on Hearthstone, Christian is swinging away on Mario Golf on his new 2DS, and Jeff is loving Mario Kart 8. Plus, the guys introduce Stories of Glories and Tales of Fails.
Tabletop Time has one of the most famous players of D&D on hand, so of course Scott describes exactly what makes playing D&D Next so great.
All that, plus YOUR phone calls!
