Video: Arby 'n' the Chief - Bytes S02E01: "The Great Evil"

Hey guys,

To fill in the gaps between the last half of the story episodes of season seven, I've started a second season of the Bytes mini-series, the first episode of which is now available:

Arby 'n' the Chief - Bytes S02E01: "The Great Evil"

Chief playing the role of an outrageous minister struck me as a funny idea, but I knew it would come at the cost of sparking a religious comment war.  No matter what your beliefs, try to remember that the target of the episode's joke is gaming fanboyism, not religion.  I noticed a handful of people have already pointed it out in the comments, thankfully.

For those that aren't sure, the term "casual" refers to casual gamers, meaning gamers who pick up games designed for the instant gratification of the masses and play them "for fun" (often their words) or to socialize with friends online moreso than mastering the mechanics of the game and building their own skill ("hardcore" gamers).  Chief, as usual, uses the term horribly incorrectly as it is much more fitting for him to be labeled as a casual gamer than Arbiter is.

Thanks,
Jon
