The new episode for Saturday, October the 11th is yours for the downloading right here.
Time flies when digesting news from both the Tokyo Game Show and BlizzCon simultaneously, and it moves especially fast when you’ve got less than an hour to transmute that news into a cohesive discussion. We’re on track with the new Halo entries and Diablo 3’s wizard class announcement and other important things, but we can’t help savoring a recent and growing love of Peter Molyneux’s accidental PR genius. He’s at turns absurd and inspiring; enigmatic and embarrassing, like the manic pixie dream girl of post-middle-age game developers. Personally, I’d have hated the spectacle in the past, but now I find myself hoping for a similar show from the rest of the eccentric grognards in the industry.
Sadly, an unavoidable road trip during our normal studio time means your panel for this episode is well under complement. Jeremy is honeymooning with the missus and Dennis is shackled to whatever terrible apparatus he tends for the man. The show is always something less when a co-host is absent, but these two were particularly missed during this week’s mail bag segment. We had several opportunities to clarify for the listeners our feelings about the Wii, but without the heart and soul of our Nintendo fandom present, we had mostly shrugs and apologies. Thanks to the quality input of a remarkable listener base the present cast was able to handle some subjects in full, so keep it up with the emails and stuff. You’re making us look good.
