AAC 36 September 17 2006 (Strangeness and Superheros) (58:27)

All Apokolipz Considered, with Ty McGowen and Kris McCuller. Jess is gone this week (go figure). We babble on for a while about newsy type stuff and babble some more about things that just dont matter. Kris wants a cookie throughout the show and now claims he "Gets No Podcasts" (Dvorak wannabe). Ty talks about the broken fridge that we now apparently put "Stuff" into. We both complain that something just doesnt seem right about anything today! Gaming For Cheap Bastards: Marvel RPG now free. Games You May Never Have Heard Of: Junk RPG. We talk a lot of superhero roleplaying games and a little bit about the types of systems used (we dont go into great detail). We hope you liked our edition of All Apokolipz Considered. Kris and Ty Thank you for your time!

(Look for Carol, Mark, and Chris later this week on Gamer: The Podcasting!)

With Mark Kinney and Chris Heim. Mark trashes most of the episode we recorded because it was crap, so the episode topic (time travel) will return later. (And sorry about the rough nature of the first half of this week's podcast, as Audacity crashed on Mark halfway through editing, and he was really sick of hearing all this over and over.) Mark doesn't want to talk about how the leaving to involve himself in the chupacabra plot went. Green Ring Ethos, and particularly it's discussion of Waverly Hills Sanitorium. No listeners locked in the Bastille that we know of. Origins Awards vs Gamers Choice Awards. Vanguard Awards and Hall of Fame. A short glance at Infinite Armies.

While I'm waiting for Carol's segments to come in to post a show, I set up a totally unscientific survey to help figure out where to take the show in the future. The link is over in the sidebar to the right. It's only ten questions, so it will hardly take any time at all.

Show delay

We're back to dialup only here at the high-tech All Games Considered studios, and the show we just recorded is an editing nightmare which will take me four or five hours to finish, and I dread even starting on it.

So, when the confluence of return of internet access and my desire to edit the show occurs, we'll have a new episode. Hopefully that won't be too long, but it's likely to be sometime next week.

Thursday, June 08, 2006

Next episode will be late...

(Okay, I admit I haven't used this like this before, as I understand RSS just enough to not know if I can use this for standard blogging. So, we'll see...)

This weekend's episode will be late, as I'm out where I have no ready high speed internet access for uploading and downloading huge files. As such, it'll be Tuesday, probably, before the next show is out.

Thanks for your patience!

An Apology To Our Listeners

We've gotten a record amount of feedback on the Ask A Gamer segment, almost entirely negative. I want to assure everyone that the segment is dead and won't be appearing again here. I apologize to everyone, but most of all Star Wars fans. I do the final edit of the show and decide what goes in, so ultimately the blame is mine.

I hope folks will give us another chance. I know that a past annoyance used up a lot of people's patience, but still...
