    1. Good podcast, very entertaining. Just weird that you forgot to mention that Diablo 3 was released in China for the first time ever this year. You talk a lot about all the cosmetics they get and touch a tiny bit on their different business model, but that the game didn’t even exist there before this year was not called out I believe. 🙂

      • A good point, though I don’t know what we’d have said about it other than just stating D3 was now in China. We’ve talked about the Stash4Cash model a lot of times, which is the main contribution of D3 in China to the general game discussion. That and clever Chinese players finding the best new builds which lazy Americans then copy.

    2. I posted the same comment basically on the youtube page, but i can’t say it enough. You and N3rdwards should always do the podcast or at least you two plus a guest now and than. You bounce off each others humor perfectly while many others dont get Flux’s sarcastic wit of doom. Ya, very easy to listen to, very funny from both of you, very entertaining.
