Dispatches from the Front

My boss and I had tried to do something very similar to the movie but it never panned out. I love that you guys have kept it going and seems like it’s growing among all the listeners. For those of you have played Fantasy football, Yahoo likes to do a grade system after the draft to add some flair and post draft analyst. Although a week late, Here you guys go!

Hi Tom, Brian and guest. Just a note about the Atari Game Over documentary coming to Xbox Live. On this weeks Major Nelson Podcast which is made by a bunch of Xbox employees Jeff Rubenstein from the Xbox community team mentioned that the documentary is available to both Gold and Silver members. Meaning that you don’t have to be paying for Xbox Live to see the documentary.

From your boss, Nik.


I have a roku 2 xs, and chromecast. Thinking of dropping directv and would move roku 2 to bedroom tv as it has composite out as that tv does not have hdmi. What do you recommend in addition to the chromecast to get amazon prime instant and why? A new roku, a roku stick, or amazon firestick, this is just so I can get prime on the TV chromecast works great for netflix, hulu, and hbogo.

Thanks for the insight.
