PixelCast 24 – Pixel Two
After a delay with – sadly – no BorderCast to compensate, and an invasion by a (proclaimed) hacker from Turkey, the PixelCast returns with a vengeance! Well, with as much of a vengeance as a pre-recorded radio show can have. Witch may be some, or it may be none at all. We’re not really sure. It’s pretty good, though.
Resident in Australia for the first time in a little over four years, it doesn’t take Tim long to verbally begin missing the Internet connection speeds that he was spoiled with in Korea. Mercifully, things move on quickly, and his co-hosts, Ken and Cody, take over with talk of games, fantasy fiction, and RPG preferences.
The RPG debate rages on for a while, and although we somehow neglected to mention that, while we can forgive them in older titles, anyone who decides that mandatory random battles are a good idea for modern games can be slowly eaten alive by red ants for all we care. Also, Tim has some thoughts about Mass Effect that surprise no-one.
