Pseudo Qotw:
If you didn't have the Gaming Gumbo I would say just cover the biggest news in gaming that can technically fit the online theme. Since you do have Gaming Gumbo I think you should make a priority list of different kinds of games instead of a hard yes or no. Or maybe a ... PRIORITY TIER LIST!!!

S Tier:
* Anything Bless related when Troy is on.

A Tier:
* News from major mmos.
* Industry news (Blizzard lawsuits, Twitch hack, etc.).

B Tier:
* F2P news.
* News from smaller mmos.
* News from bigger online only games.

C Tier:
* News from bigger games with online multiplayer (Smash, CoD, etc.).

D Tier:
* News from smaller games with online multiplayer.

E Tier:
* Everything else.

Press F Tier:
* To pay respect to dead games.

If a piece of news is really interesting (or has really good SEO) bump it up a tier or two. If it's boring bump it down. Then just cover stories based on their ranking until you have enough material. The tier list is in the order I would prefer but feel free to swap the order.

P.S. Jambalaya is better than gumbo

Sorry Q is a little lower this week. We had to make a quick mic change as one broke. I ordered her a new Yeti right after the show so we're all good again when we come back two weeks from now. No Always Online next Friday, but we will still be doing the streams so come hang out on Twitch!
