S03E13 - Thanks For Giving Me the Nazi Ships Jason!!!!

Everyone has something to complain about today. Whether it is Nazis, ASCAP, Our Set, Capital Ship Weapons, or the Arcane Legions Starter Set, we get a few rants in. The main purpose of this episode is to get some more insight into the game development process as Ryan and Kyle review the alpha 2 rules of Master of Planets. All I can do is sit back and defend my design decisions.

S03E11 - Learning What Doesn't Work at My Expense - Part 1 of 2

Lets revamp that battlefield that we built last year. This new design solves a lot of the problems of the old one and introduces a whole new art style. For this episode I build a possessed river delta and general grassland field. In addition to building a field, I review the Games Workshop Scenery Painting Pack. (Would you ever guess that it's too freaking expensive?)

First off, sorry for the delay on this episode. I had a busy week with another project and I did not have time to get this show edited. Today we have another proejct episode except that we are not going to be building any terrain. Any good soldier fighting for the greater good needs to have a weapon.

Well, On this episode Martin the Destoyer, A long time Starcraft player, joins us in on our review of Starcraft Brood War by Fantasy Flight Games. Long story short....Its awesome. Be sure to watch the show in order to find out why. I think it might be the highest rated game in Tabletop Battlefield History.

I think this episode may get the award for the worst episode we have ever done. I couldn't stop coughing, no one sound checked Ryan's Mic, and Kyle seemed sedated because he was too comfortable. Next time he gets a crappy chair with several thumb tacks. Seeing that is the last episode of the year, it's time to look back all of our crazy outtakes. With that, Thanks for spending another year with us, have a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and a Freaking Awesome New Year. We will check back in sometime in Early 2009.

Kyle said it best this episode by quoting a Clint Eastwood Movie. "Tomorrow is a promise to no one." Unfortunately, we filmed this on Sunday Nov 9th 2008, A day before Wizkids closed down. I hope you enjoy our ironic topic "Who is going to survive the next year".

But on a serious note, we do wish the best of luck to all the Wizkids employees. We will give you more information about this industry shake up as it becomes available.

To be fair, I lied again last week. There is no review of Warmachine this time around. The Michicon 2008 confrence came up in the mean time.

Anyway, Michicon 2008 is hosted by the Metro Detroit Gamers and is held on the campus of Oakland University in Auburn Hills Michigan. I want to thank MDG for inviting us up to the confrence and allowing us to take a bunch of pictures and video. In this episode we get to talk with a number of game masters and get introduced to a number of games we have never played before. Therefore, the layout of the show is as follows:

~0:00 - Intro to Michicon and its history
~7:00 - Thud by Tri Tac Games - Fast playing miniatures
~12:30 - Fire and Fury - American Civil War
~20:00 - Clear for Action - World War II Naval Combat

Also, we want to here from you about the following questions:
1)Do you expect the Lead Designer of a game to have a lot of experience in the universe the game is being created for?
2)Do you care if a game maintains the laws of physics for the particular universe it exists in - why or why not?

If you have not checked out the Army Showcase recently, then you probably do not know that I moved the site over to www.tabletopbattlefield.com. However, if everything worked as expected, then you should not notice a thing. This short episode is designed to see if the RSS feed is still working as expected. There are WMV and MP3 versions of this episode. I do not have an MP4 of it at the moment. Oh and Have a Happy New Year Everyone!

I really don't know how this episode disappeared from the feed, but It really needs to be here since it is probably our best episode ever. Of course you will not learn anything too useful...Except that: 1) Hot Glue is Hot 2) Kyle Hates Flower Glasses 3) Jason Screws Up a lot 4) We waste a lot of tape filming this episode

Episode 22 - Out First Look at Heroscape: Swarm of the Marro

We are trying a new show type tonight. We are basically do as live of a show as a podcast can get[That is one reason for the early release]. Instead of my usual amount of editing, we are quite a bit more animated in this episode. I literally just got back from the store with a copy of the new Heroscape Master Set - Swarm of the Marro. Ryan and I tear through it and we give you our first impressions of the game. Big Hint: Its looks cool so far.

I take on a different topic in the first similar interest podcast. Instead of a topic on miniature war games, I talk with some members of the local Dagorhir chapter: Eryndor. I ask them about the LARP game they play and get to see some of the game in action. If you are looking for miniature game info, we will back to our normal shows next time as the next few weeks will be busy(Halo AC,40K Apocalypse, Heroscape:SWOTM, Starcraft, B5 2ed...).
