Rob Deer didn't *literally* do that for a decade!
Dan Szymborski
1:08
OK, he figuratively did it for a decade. That's a good point
OK
we're past one o'clock
Let's get the Lightning Round going.
1:09
The rules for the Lightning Round are simple: I must answer every question, no matter how little knowledge or insight I have, so long as it's off-topic. The exceptions are of course, work-related things and things I deem as excessively personal
And this continues until I either catch up or get bored. This isn't a suicide pact, I have other things I have to do!
AND GO

I'm totally down for these endcap expansions for long RPG series, I'm talking about Blood & Wine here, but it reminds me so much of ME3: Citadel. They're just an awesome thank you to the fans of the series, and a chance for the designers to have a little fun and let loose a bit outside of the constraints of the rest of the series.

Thoughts on the Libertarian Party ticket this year? Seems like a lot of room to grow given the major party candidates.
Dan Szymborski
1:10
I wish that was the Republican ticket
1:11
I'm a small l libertarian. I believe in the general principles, but I don't like the topdown approach - parties have to win in the trenches.

Why no love for SC2?
Dan Szymborski

Just not big on the setting
Stellaris is unusual for me in that regard

Do you play Overwatch? Preferred character?
Dan Szymborski

Yup, I played throughout the closed beta

I enjoy Junkrat because Demo was my best TF2 class, but I play all the classes.
I'm at least slightly competent at this point with everyone but Winston and Mei

Whatever happened to chess? Not the game that's having a world champion later this year between a westerner and a Putin shill. Well, yeah that game, but I know it's around. I mean weren't we going to play somehow at one time?
Dan Szymborski
1:12
I think a lot of the people who grew up and would have been into chess are into esports.
