The indie game developer of Summer of '58 announced that his next game is on hiatus due to the amount of alleged refund abuse on Steam - his game can be completed in 90 minutes so many people are able to get their money back after completion. Then we talk to chat about Gamescom reveals, as well as to Rob about Dragon Con - until the connection craps out. We will be back in two weeks!

Gamescom happened this week, and with it two large online events showcasing the latest games, including a Microsoft event, and Opening Night Live from The Game Awards team. A new Saints Row game was teased at Opening Night Live, but was it what our resident Saints Row fan LOKI was hoping for? Or were there issues with the way it was announced? We discuss this and much more from the week in gaming.

The Southern-Fried Gaming expo was this past weekend - and it was my first in-person convention in two years. My feet are tired, but it was an enjoyable time. There's a lot of video in this segment, which you can see by subscribing to our Twitch channel and watching the VOD - but I try to describe everything. Before SFGE, I had played through Boyfriend Dungeon - which is a rogue-lite and dating sim. There's a controversy over the villain being portrayed too on the nose and for people who want to play the game without him, but that's like asking to play Final Fantasy VII without Sephiroth... Then we talk to Rob about Dragon Con in two weeks!

As well as tackling this important topic regarding gaming culture, there is plenty of gaming news for us to get into this week as well!

The Southern-Fried Gaming Expo is August 20-22 in Atlanta, and will be masks required with an additional ballroom allocated for vaccinated people only which is masks optional. Games Done Quick is currently hosting Flame Fatales, an all woman-presenting speedrunning marathon benefiting The Malala Fund. I won a Newegg Product Shuffle! It's only an RTX 3060 Ti and not an RTX 3080 like I wanted, but I'll take it for now. The Intellivision Amico was delayed but all preorders were offered a gift...that many of us might have already had. A bipartisan bill in the US Senate would force mobile phone makers to allow for competing app stores and sideloading, pleasing Epic Games and Spotify. Then we talk about Dragon Con as well as me being a master at repairing pinball.
