BrolyLegs is a grand master Street Fighter pro player that is known for playing differently than most. He was born with arthrogryposis, a condition that inhibits muscle growth and joint movement, and has adapted to learn how to play games without the use of his hands. BrolyLegs joins me to chat about the last 15 years of competing in fighting game tournaments, including the first two seasons of Street Fighter League, and about how he is connecting with other players through Twitch, YouTube and one-on-one coaching.

Blizzard turned the page back in history this summer with the release of Classic World of Warcraft in lieu of a traditional expansion and John Staats, the first 3D level designer at Blizzard, recently published The World of Warcraft Diary. John joined Katy on the latest episode of KakeBytes to talk about how he went from Dungeon Master (and mod map maker) to dungeon designer, what working on World of Warcraft for ten years was like (including his book) and what he has worked on in the years since.

E3 was jam packed this year and I was starstruck the whole week I attended. In my journeys, I had the pleasure of meeting Carlos Rocha, the founder of Dreams Uncoporated and SYCK games. Both companies are working tirelessly on Cris Tales, a love letter to classic JRPGs that debuted during the PC Gaming Show. I was enamored by Cris Tales' development journey and the inspiration behind it during our meeting in June and I'm excited to share Carlos' story with all of you.  You can wishlist Cris Tales and play the demo through Steam. You can follow updates on the game @CrisTalesGame and follow the development teams @syckstudio and @D_UncorporatedYou can find notes on today's show at kakebytes.com.

Ed Annunziata joined me on the latest episode of the show to discuss the Sega Genesis classic Ecco the Dolphin as well as discuss Space War Area, which launched earlier this year on the Nintendo Switch. We delve into his love of programming that kickstarted his career, starting with Pyramid Run in 1984. He has stuck with the same team since Ecco, modernizing the development approach that has stuck with them for the last three decades.
