We may be crazy but it doesn’t feel like its been just shy of a month since the last htxt.africast, but it has and there is really no shortage of things to talk about.

The arrival of Netflix in the country last week has been on everybody’s lips, but with minimal content and the threat of a clampdown on geo-blocking, Brendyn wonders out loud whether the service is really all it’s been hyped up to be.

Valve Software has inadvertently indicated that the Steam Winter Sale was a success for all involved, despite the removal of daily deals and flash sales. Clinton talks us through the numbers and how he managed to get a few games on the cheap by selling trading cards.

Finally, both Clinton and Brendyn discuss Lazy Bear Games and publisher tinyBuild Games asking Twitch to beat its game Punch Club before releasing it on Steam, and whether the Desert Bus remake for VR will feature a mod that turns it into a video game version of the 90’s action thriller, Speed.

And that’s all we have for you this week. Have a great weekend!
