How about them video games folks? We sure do love them down here at LevelSave. We love them so much that we talked about them in all sorts of ways. Those ways include-
-Now Playing (2:05)- Barry Taryn, and myself discuss what we are playing right now.
-News (42:38)- Taryn, James, and myself gather to discuss the PS4 and what impact it could have on the game space. Also some Mass Effect 3 news.
-Reflection (1:53:13)- Austin, Kenny, and myself gather round the Save Crystal to dig into DRM with this question(s)- Always on DRM in consoles. Rumors indicate that it could be present in the next Xbox. Is this possible? What about the PS4? What kind of DRM would we be OK with? Since piracy on the current consoles is not “much” of a problem what do we think the purpose of DRM is? Could this possibly promote piracy as opposed to stamp out used games? Is there anything we as gamers could do to combat this?”
-EA and Greedium (2:56:45)- James Pope and myself have a one on one to really hash out why we disagree on microtransactions in videogames.

At the end of the show I used the term ‘non-licensed” to describe the music in the show. What I meant by this is that all “licensed” music, that is, 90% of the music used underneath the tracks when talking about a particular game, is owned by the copyright owner and s used under the fair use law, wit the majority of that enforced by the fact that we make no money off this podcast.
