Someone once pulled the whole "hurr durr, no rewinds" on me during a magic game when I ended my turn too quickly.
I, being a rules lawyer and a bastard, proceeded to declare every time I passed priority for the rest of that game.

It really depends on how serious the game is. If it's in a tournament then you follow the letter of the rules, because the outcome has actual consequences. If it's just a friendly game, you go by what people intended within the framework of the rules. If they forgot to do something last turn and they mention it before it becomes important (I.E. you can't say "I meant to use my smoke grenade" after your opponent shoots you, but you could if you realized while they were still planning their moves), it's usually good form to just run with it.
But then, sounds like the Penny Arcade team may be a bit more hardcore than your average FLGS table, so tourney rules may apply.
