0:00 - Lake Superior State University's annual list of banned words, now a game show for your enjoyment! 16:25 - Carlos has been enjoying not watching anime, mostly because of isekai.

Carlos makes his feelings on this question, and on E3, known. 1:32:41 - Is a Knights of the Old Republic remake imminent? 1:33:39 - Some people think BioWare and Blizzard only went downhill after their acquistion by EA/Activision, but Carlos says they've always been shitty. We also discuss MMO content rollout strategies, specifically, WoW vs. Guild Wars 2. And are MMOs really games? At least one fat guy argues against. 1:48:18 - More of the banned words game show!
