In which Chris, Graham and Marsh discuss the rise and fall of paid modding, the return of racing games that are fun even if you’re terrible at them, and explore the vagaries of the MOBA, the Dota, and all things in between.

Plus: love blooms between Thomas The Tank Engine and Valve’s Randian Moneybot; Batman is not descended from orcs and you should feel bad for thinking so; magic mangoes why not.
