Play This! Podcast: Starcraft, Roku 3, Downton Abbey, Larry King Now, and Veronica Mars

Jason is finally back on the show this week, trying to explain to Carlos why Downton Abbey is a great show. He's not convinced, so there's a bet. Lunch is at stake. Also discussed, the mystery over Veronica Mars, which none of us have watched, but our friends are very excited about.

Links from this week's episode:

  • The second part of Starcraft II is out, and Alex is watching a lot of people play on
  • Everyone got really excited about the Veronica Mars movie kickstarter, but none of us have seen the show and don't know why we should care. Unfortunately, there isn't a great place to stream them all online, without shelling out big dollars.
  • A new patch gets closer to fixing SimCity! Only half a dozen patches to go!
  • Larry King didn't really retire, he just went streaming. Check out Larry King Now on Hulu if you still love that gravelly old man.
  • Want to find some great online stuff to watch? The Streamy Awards were announced last month, and they're full of great online content.
  • Carlos and Alex wouldn't listen to Jason when he said Downton Abbey is great. In fact, Carlos bet him lunch he could watch two episodes and still not give a care. It's on.
  • Draw a Stickman Epic is availalbe for a whole host of platforms, and great fun. iOS, Android, Kindle Fire, Mac, Windows Phone, or Windows 8.
