Just a warning that this one is a little sadder than usual.
Robin Williams is more than just a man, he’s a legend. Which is why he can’t be gone, I mean not really. He’s touched too many lives and affected too many things to suddenly not exist anymore. Robin Williams will live on forever. It is for that reason that we choose to discuss his best work and what it meant to us personally. Rather than get stuck on the unfortunate circumstances of his passing, we can remember him for what he left behind. Out of respect, we did something a little different with this episode’s image and decided against adding our faces. It’s classy and in no way about being lazy.
We also spend some time discussing the recent Gamescom convention. Including the controversy surrounding the new Tomb Raider game and why you shouldn’t give up hope.
Stay tuned next episode for a special hour long 2 year anniversary episode! If you have any suggestions on what you’d like us to talk about, or thoughts of your own about anything already discussed, than please comment below. See you next time!
I don’t want to tell anyone, but this is another Skyped episode. We don’t like them any more than you do, but they’re a necessary evil – what with crazy work and family schedules, I mean, you’re lucky to get anything at all. Why are you so ungrateful?
Anyway, in this episode we take some time to process the recent passing of Robin Williams, who was obviously a very important presence in many of our lives.
Then we get mad about video games for a few minutes.

I think for me my fav Robin Williams movie is Good Morning Vietnam. He was such a great actor. <3
Congrats you guys on 2 yr anniversary coming up!
Thanks Erin! I still can’t believe he really died. It’s seems impossible to me . . .
He will be missed.
I’ll always remember him in Mrs. Doubtfire. It was a stand-out performance for me as a youngster first seeing it. It just amazed me that he could play two completely different personalities (not to mention characters of two different genders) and still carry across the emotional heft of the story. Robin Williams was a unique talent.
They were making a sequel to that when he died. I guess we’ll never know how much of a mistake that was.
