AGC 130 May 25th 2010 (Live For Five!) (1:18:51)

With Mark Kinney, Carol and Mags. Five years, not five episodes. Technical difficulties with UStream, or the local router, or something. A lot of Dresen Files is going down. Shopping. HyperiCon! Obituaries for Frank Franzetta and J. Eric Holmes (and Ronnie James Dio). Thanks for helping spread the word (and the Fringeworthy podcast, although unmentioned in the show, helped as well). Reviews: Mark talks about d20 Fringeworthy, and Carol looks at the Goodman Games Dragonborn book. As we move to the less structured part of the episode, Mags confuses Gordon Litefoot and George Thorogood. How AGC got started. LARP stuff. Changes in the industry through the years. AGC highlights (and lowlights) from Big Damn Review Shows to Shaken Not Stirred. Why Mags The Axe? An upcoming All Flesh Must Be Eaten game. Feedback! Giving away an autographed champaign cork to a lucky chatroom inhabitant for no reaily apparent reason. Live again for New Years? The longest "blooper reel" EVAR!

Live for Five!

Tomorrow is the big day (or today, if you're reading this on Tuesday...)

This is the place.

We'll crank up the works starting around 8pm Eastern time (or Midnight starting into the 19th, UTC, if I'm reading that right), start with some reviews, then settle down for a look back at the last five years, and maybe try getting some special guests in on the fun.

Hope to see you there!

AGC Going Live for Five!

Longtime listeners will no doubt be aware that All Games Considered is approaching it's five-year anniversary! If you had ever told me it would last this long...

Well, anyway.

We're celebrating with a live show, to run over UStream, on Tuesday, May 18th, 2010, starting at 8pm Eastern time. We expect to do a few reviews, and then reminisce on the last five years, and hope our listeners, past as well as current, will join us! The audio, of course, will go out about a week later.

We're still ironing out a few technical details, so please check back to see what the final process and URL and all will be. In the meantime, if you're a podcaster, we hope you'll play this less-than-30-second promo (it's going out over the feed as well) if you have a show dropping between now and the 18th.

Thank you again, everyone out there -- we couldn't do this without you!
