We welcome back to the show Chris O Regan (AKA Kropotkin) host of the Superhappyfuntimeshow and veteran of multiple international gaming press and fan events. This Friday the annual Penny Arcade eXpo in Seattle opens it’s doors and the Digital Cowboys will be there, along with SHFTS, our good friend and sometime co-host Paul Shotton, Tony’s wife Lizz and about 60,000 fans of games of all kinds.
So first we have to talk about what PAX means and this is the show to do it. Also discussed are the PS3 Slim, price cuts and hikes, whether the PC as a platform can be counted as a single gaming machine, and piles of shame and absolution. Plus the mailbag, and random game of the week.
This week we’re also publishing a second episode entirely devoted to what we’ve been playing. It should be out on Tuesday. If that format proves popular we’ll be continuing with it throughout the busy holiday season and maybe beyond.
The music at the end of the show is by Mark Tschanz; the musician behind our theme tune. The song is Rattlesnake and it’s from his album Blue Dog.
If you’re going to PAX or even if you just live in the Seattle area, let us know. Post below and send us an email to [email protected] We’ll try our best to meet every one of our community.
