This episode was edited by Specs. Sorry for the lateness. We recorded a couple of months ago but then it didn’t get edited due to work/life commitments by me and Catsman.

Your name, xir

Can we get a badly edited video from cats on id history?

From what I remember, he talks about their early games a lot in “5 Genre Defining Games Forgotten By History” but it might be fun to get him to do something. He says he’s retired following Pac-Guy, but I reckon that we could get him drunk and do a “Drunk History of Id Software with Horatio Catsman”.

Thanks for bringing the news back despite everyone’s groans. I wasn’t aware and was happy to learn about the TF2 economy crash.

I used to think Quake was fun until I played it again as an adult and now I think it’s in fact not fun at all.

– doom 1 shotgun
– quake 1 secret
– quake 1 shambler
– quake 1 jump X 3
– quake 1 health pickup (50)
– quake 1 rocket launcher firing

Did I just hear Mike from that one website that turned to a VPN site?

Yes, you definitely did. He occasionally attends our discord and podcasts. RIP GYP.
