Previously unreleased, no art, and the original edit lost, this episode has been rescued from discovered recordings and presented in a raw form as the final episode of AtPlay.
Nick Mangiaracina joins the usual crew for a discussion of Supreme Court rulings, Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D’s save data snafu, and TF2 going free to play.

This week in At Play we open up by discussing the ongoing PSN security debacle and how we think it will affect us as well as the PlayStation brand. The meat of this episode is our discussion on how games can affect a person’s mental and emotional health. Dan, as usual, has done a lot of research in the matter, but Cory and Brian come to the table with their own set of opinions. We close out the episode by discussing the second episode of Doctor Who Series 6.

It’s our anniversary. Did you get us something? We got you something. Nostalgia. Reflections. And some prognostication.
We return from the break with a snark, a three branching node. Scott Pilgrim. World of Warcraft. Doctor Who. Apparently, we also don’t know Jack.
