Podtoid 61: Sponsored by Sprite(TM)

Cool as the above drawing by Scary Womanizing Pig Mask is, it's unfortunately kind of ironic: Jim Sterling is MIA for this week's episode of Podtoid. But worry not, faithful listener -- the always dashing Samit Sarkar was on hand to fill in for him.

This week, we talked about E3, Diablo III, microtransactions and ingame advertising. You can listen to the episode hyah. Highlights included:

- An initially confusing sonnet

- India: it's awesome!

- Diablo III: good addiction or bad addiction?

- An iPod? Really?

-What makes a good boss battle?

- Half the cast has not beaten Chrono Trigger

- A suspenseful, deathless action game?

Our favorite question this week came from Stephen57, who posited a really interesting, hypothetical game design philosophy. We got some good discussion out of it, if only because everyone disagreed with one another. Congrats, Stephen: put your email in the comments and we'll contact you about the cash.

[The intro/outro song is from here. Don't listen to it unless you really want to have it in your head for the next month. I am not joking in the slightest.]
