Will listen to the ep soon!

Podcast idea: Discuss the future of modding. That shouldn't be dangerous at all :p

No discussion about the full release of ACC? I thought that was the biggest news of the week, no?
And how much have we talked about ACC? Plus we have done the SRO esport series since then. And front page articles. We dont need to mentions things everywhere ;)

Hi Johnathan, felt we discussed the full release on the previous podcast and have talked about ACC quite a bit up until now. Decided that it would be a good idea to give other topics and games their time in the limelight.

There will be plenty more podcasts where we will discuss ACC I am sure.

Thanks for your question.

A more cynical person might think that the blog avoiding discussing both the ACC Matchmaking scam and the ACC v1.0 launch fiasco might be linked to RDs commercial links with Kunos. I am relieved that this wasn't the reason both topics were avoided, and look forward to RDs robust criticism of Kunos in future episodes.

Your choice to cover whatever you want, of course. But it still seems strange to me to not talk about it going to 1.0, to not talk about all the new content in it and to not have an opportunity to discuss the controversial state of the current release. I’m a massive fanboy of ACC so was preparing for a barrage of criticism with some trepidation but - nothing. Like I say, up to you, but IMHO it’s an odd editorial decision.
