Weekend of 11/12/05
I should really stop putting any time label on these things besides just when we record them. Work has walloped me over the last week and this took a while to edit. My apologies. There is some noise in the audio mix, but it’s nothing unlistenable, and the volume should be a lot stronger.
With the usual crew. I also don’t have time for show notes, but: we discuss Chris’ take on the current plight of Magic: the Gathering for the first 15 or so, then it’s on to comparisons with (and gratuitous insults of) L5R. At 18:20 we go into that classic gamer question, our origins in gaming – but we do it for a reason. Our question to you this week: what (briefly, please) started you in gaming, and more importantly, what do you think are the real avenues to get new blood into gaming today? Let us know. A few other quick bits, including Allan’s report on the D&D Online preview party at 37 min., and we jump into currently-playing at 41:30.
[Dammit, in-page audio is chipmunked again. Will try to fix this, but you can always use the Get MP3 link underneath the player.]
