This week it is just your standard co-host random topic cast. One would think that in a week that saw a new iPad announcement and a major game release that there would have been more to talk about. Join Draeno and Emdee this week while they discuss Blizzard buffing the scroll of resurrection, Topher Grace’s fan edit of Star Wars Episodes 1-3, Marvel and digital distribution rolling into just a general discussion of digital distribution, an analysis of the 3rd generation iPad announcement, and Mass Effect 3 stealing the souls of gamers worldwide.

Special guest David Sirlin of Sirlin Games joins 20 Sides of Nerd’s hosts Draeno and Emdee. Together they talk about the path David took in creating his own games like Yomi and Puzzle Strike, issues with patent and copyright in games, and the struggles of creating a “balanced” fighting game or deck based game. He even takes the time to answer some pointed questions from podcast listeners via Twitter. As a special bonus he drops some information on his newest game that is his “answer to Magic the Gathering.”

First of all, since we’ve got The Light Show as a guest, you know full well that the explicit tag is earned. Be warned! In typical 20SON fashion, we go over all kinds of things this week. Sony/Apple and Whitney Houston’s death, Target’s data mining and the teenage pregnant mom, Twitter as a news source, Ivy Bridge delayed until June, 2001 A Space Odyssey, Syd Mead’s futurism, Apple’s OSX Mountain Lion announcement, don’t use Facebook when you’re on a jury, Kickstarter and the game industry, Lightshow’s experiences with Minecraft 1.1, the new Civilization V expansion, and the Old Republic Endgame.
