Where the fuck is next episode!?

It doesn't exist yet.

The excuse is the same as always. Adulthood getting in the way, and me living in a state with near zero adult labor laws (which im okay with, copious amounts of OT).

We had to kick the can down the street this month because i went on vacation last month for 2 weeks, then returned to work to learn i would get zero days off for the month of August due to an exodus of young employees that decided they dont like to work and think they can earn more money living in their parents basement.

As a partial solution, We have decided to choose someone(s) from the community to try their hand at podcasting for Retrorpg.net. You can read the details of this here.

Change of plans

For those that got their hopes up, We have to destroy those hopes.

Planescape Torment will NOT be played this year. What I feared with playing a CRPG had come to pass.
Too much game for the show.
This is one reason why we have not touched Baldur's gate, Ultima, NWN, Icewind dale, etc.
Our plan was, much like every other game, was to split it into 2 parts, and play through the main story, but within hours it became clear that sticking just to the main story would not be possible and the game demands the player to adventure on many side quests in order to advance the plot, or provide adequate gear for the character to muscle through parts. Given the size and scope of Planescape, and a looming deadline, it was decided we would be unable to complete the game in the fashion we have laid out for our show.
I think what may be best is we tackle CRPGs in a manner similar to how we did Skyrim.

Again we apologize.

As replacement, we have lined up Link to the Past for our next show.

You may now commence with the rage and "im never listening again" posts.
