In this episode Sasha returns from a long hiatus to talk about prohibition and cocktails during the 1920s. His guest is Artemis Knight form the Bear Swarm! podcast (http://www.bearswarm.com/). Since they are both gaming geeks, the Call of Cthulhu role playing game is mentioned.

Sasha also explains why it’s been so long since the last episode, and asks you wonderful folks to help him make future shows be more frequent: Send in questions for him to answer on the show via email to podcast@pixlee.net or, better yet, leave him a voice mail at (510) 394-4461 (that’s (510) 394-GIN-1).

[14:15] The rewardless approach.
[24:20] Loquacious people.
[27:25] How to reward and don’t punish.

Mike from the Bear Swarm! podcast joins us on the show this week. He’s here as part of their Take a Couple of Months Off Grand Tour. ;-)

We start with our usual discussion of what’s on our radar this week, which led to a discussion of the merits (or should that be demerits) of Final Fantasy XIII. Blood Bowl, Magna Carta 2, and Turf Wars Online are all discussed, as well.

We also put Mike through the Top Ten wringer, harassing him about his decision to flaunt some of our rules, while also admitting that he makes some valid objections to those same rules. The list won’t make a show-note appearance, so you’ll have to listen to hear Mike’s shocking (Shocking, I say!) pick for Number One.*
*Mike’s Number One pick may or may not be all that terribly shocking.

Cast : Mike and Role-Playing Public Radio
Topic : RPPR Episode 44: Don’t Hate the Game
BS! Sponsors : Meta-Games Unlimited and Obsidian Portal
BS! Memberships: Spooky Outhouse Productions and RPG Podcasts.com

In this episode, we have a special guest: Mike from Bear Swarm. We discuss why edition wars and hating on games in discussions is a pointless endeavor and why people endlessly flame each other over them. We also talk about Catalyst Game Labs and of course, Tom has a letter.

Shout Outs:

  • Triangle: A great horror film that is better the less you know about it before you watch it.
  • Pandemic: A board game about stopping a global pandemic. You usually fail.
  • Imaginary Monsters: A web comic about monsters and dungeons.
  • Poo: A card game about monkeys flinging poo.
  • Casshern: The live action Japanese 2007 sci-fi flick. Crazy effects and nonsensical plot.
  • MD Geist: Ultra violent 80s anime that features gamer logic.
  • Iron Tyrants: ROBOT SMASHING FIGHTING TIME
  • Sin Titulo: Eisner nominated web comic. Very creepy and a great read.

Music: Cataclysmic Crash by Game Over.
