Jon and Cody discuss work culture during the holiday season, then talk misleading time commitments—especially as it relates to finding time to play video games.

Show Notes:

  • Life Stuff
    • Jon talks about being a pharmacist during the holidays, and Cody explains what corporate life is like in December
    • A quick tangent about the upcoming Hearthstone expansion, Mean Streets of Gagdetzan, spirals out of control and turns into something about Gambit from the X-Men and Harambe
    • Cody and Jon discuss how many hours per week they work and how often they like to work; then, Jon calls Cody a communist
  • Balancing Act

    • Jon harshly criticizes Horde Mode and explains why they desperately need to introduce a penalty system for players dropping out
    • Cody plugs Suburban Scavengers, the newest game from Doombrowski, which he strongly encourages you to support on Steam Greenlight!
    • Cody chastises Jon for not pre-ordering Final Fantasy XV
