Tuesday and the work week is well underway. How's yours going? Hopefully well. My Monday seemed to go by quickly, which is always nice. To help make the rest of the week go by just as quickly, let's tune in to some gaming podcasts, shal we?
This week on the dial we have: Geeks of the North Episode 71: Inspiring medias and vaguecasting; All Us Geeks Episode 85: It’s Unreal That The Geeks Race To Go Digital; Morrus' Unofficial Tabletop RPG Talk Episode 45: U3 The Final Countdown — Err, Enemy; Chance of Gaming Episode 29; Meeples & Miniatures Episode 266: It’s all Greek to me, Part Alpha; The Offline Gamer Episode 38 - Ooops...; and The Secret Cabal Express 48: Quantic Foundry Board Games Motivation Profile.
This week, we ramble about hobby and games as usual, and Paul calls Antoine out about his recent "vaguecasting". We then chat about movies and medias that inspired us in playing new games or factions. We also talk about the Dark Knight Rises starter box by Knight Models, and the and the Animal Adventures: Tales of Cats and Catacombs kickstarter project by PaintingPolygons. So sit back, relax, grab a paintbrush and enjoy the show!
Here it is! The final episode that was recorded before our hiatus! Ironically, it is also an episode filled with the hopes and dreams of Jeff and Jordan about feeling good about getting back into the swing of things. The Fools!
Well, we’re well into recording again and things look as good as these two seem to think they did back then. ;-}
This is also a first, as Jeff and Jordan review 2 digital versions of games. Let us know what you think!
This week, Morrus and Peter delve into the final of the U-Series modules for Dungeons & Dragons, The Final Enemy in anticipation for the release of Ghosts of Saltmarsh. In the news, the Pathfinder 2nd Ed live stream Oblivion Oath starts, ex-BioWare devs’ Odyssey of the Dragonlords for 5e launches Kickstarter, RPGs up but games overall down in 2018 industry financial report, and more! Plus a brand new user-submitted sketch, Our Favorite Game in All the World, and more!
