Jeff Cannata has ventured to the land down under, leaving host Garnett Lee to brave the days of summer with Shacknews' Andrew Yoon, "Indie" Jeff Mattas, and Double Jump's Christian Spicer. They begin the show by looking back at the days of Counter-Strike and whether that kind of multiplayer magic can ever be recaptured, before briefly jumping back into World of Tanks. That leads into talk of everyone's Steam Summer Sale bounty and whether Steam's annual sale can compare to the free offerings from PlayStation Plus. Your questions from last week's show thread are also answered and Andrew catches you up on the latest in games before everyone sends you off into this Comic-Con/PAX Australia weekend with a new round of Finishing Moves.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
