VGRT Gaming Podcast Episode 239: This Episode is DRM-free

This week, Paul is too busy unpacking in his new home in California, so it's just Jonah and Jordan, as the news mainly deals with DRM. The Gaming Flashback this week is the Activision racer The Great American Cross-Country Road Race, while this week's Gaming History doesn't focus on a video game company or developer, but a fictional character instead, Mario's favorite mount, Yoshi.

The news this week includes:

* EA forum bans cause game bans
* Research film states piracy’s up 20% in past 5 years
* GOG sez customers hate DRM
* Steam user database cracked
* Uncharted 3 launches with 1.1M sold in first week

All that plus Reader Feedback and the Question of the Week, "What DRM would you tolerate?" (EA, Good Old Games, Industry, PC, PS3, Retro, Steam, Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, Xbox 360)
