When two thirds of the cast can’t make the show, we don’t close up shop for the week. Nope, we go out and get professional fill-in like Nick K (aka GamesontheMind/LuckyStiffLive).

This week we discuss how Bethesda and Sony have changed course on allowing mods on the PS4, PlayStation, a wireless Oculus headset, and more.

Games we’ve been playing are Yesterday Origins, Ember, 7 Days to Die, Alien: Isolation, Outlast 2 demo, and Ark: Survival Evolved.

Community Question of the Week:
Do you have a specific video game “comfort food?” (I.E. Something that’s old and familiar and you play now and again to feel good.
