DEREK SMART! He wants to make games where you can jump out of your spaceship and fall all the way to earth and die.

Oh, actually I do have something to say other than that. I'm going to have call Prole out here a bit, with regard to complaining about some of the major game Kickstarters preying on nostalgia and hoary franchises. As of right now, there's probably more major game Kickstarters that are about brand new games than there are reboots/sequels of old games. You've got Jane Jensen, Tim Schafer, and Two Guys from Andromeda doing new adventure games unrelated to their previous work, then there's Grim Dawn, Starlight Inception, The Banner Saga, and even Republique [despite obviously taking a page from Metal Gear]. The only sequels/reboots that really come to mind are Wasteland 2, Leisure Suit Larry, Shadowrun, and Carmageddon.

And even games like Wasteland 2 and Shadowrun appealed more to me from the genre buzzwords [RPG, post-apocalyptic, party-based, cyberpunk, ect.] than they did on the merits of the name and developer pedigree alone. Like, if the Shadowrun guys were doing a new Shadowrun game but it was a third-person shooter, I'd far, FAR less interested.

For me, it depends on the game and the people involved. Also depends on how much I'm being asked to spend? $50? Yeah, show me your work. $15? Eh, I'm not quite so inflexible there.

Hindu The Beast God, this isn't an ego-fluffing post, but I always enjoy your words and opinions.

Anyway, I think it's fantastic that Kill List is garnering such a huge following. Wheatley massively deserves all of the magical glory for a really satisfying horror flick. Sightseers is pretty much a must see.

It's also reassuring to see that the UK still has the edge on the USs' skill-set of horror. As a general rule Euro horror is much more satisfying, on a consistent level, than maybe say Asian or American horror?

Every time I read one of Martin's posts, I can almost understand what he's saying. It's like listening to someone speak German, in that some of the words are vaguely familiar but the whole is ultimately incomprehensible.

Hi

Yeah. So I felt pretty bad about belittling something people had the patience to actually create. It's so easy so shout snide little passive-agrresive put downs from the sidelines.

I think Barry Perkins might have an Internet beef with me.

So being a dick about

You're just mad that they replaced "Choose Your Own Adventure" books.

I can't wait to hear about Prole's journey to Digipen.

It's a shame you stopped listening Raperman, we spent the last 5 minutes of the 'cast discussing the best way to get something out of your urethra.

I second Kevin's recommendation to bring back the Borecast 7 challenge. It'll be a nice change up from the recent episodes, which have been mostly just gaming talk. Also I miss the Tom Chick reenactments and Indefensible. Basically I'm just nostalgic for the old Borecast.  :-\

That's Jack Chick, not Tom Chick:

I third another round of the Borecast 7 challenge.  Also some non-gaming (and non-book) topics would be nice.  I suspect a lot of this is because of scheduling conflicts but I enjoyed hearing stories about cracking kids with a tire iron or getting beat up by a bunch of Marines or traveling several states to follow some chick.

Keep up the good work though.

Unfortunately the next 2 will probably be vidya oriented just because of the way stuff is breaking down out here IN THE REAL WORLD, what with D3's release and then in a couple of weeks E3.  I could get behind some non-nerd stories though, we've barely mined my sordid and shameful past.

Kevin (Eel O'brien) does all the technical stuff, the rest of us just kind of show up and make asses of ourselves.  I know we use skype, and I think he uses a program called Pamela?  Not sure.
