It’s holiday in July as the gang gets back together to open mystery packages. We look forward to SDCC, talk about some personnel changes in the gaming industry, and the newest addition to Google StreetView. We take a look at White House Down, Best Friends Forever, Leviathan Wakes, and Copperhead. Finally, we talk with you about the strangest package you’ve ever opened in our NAQOTW. Ravenclaw!
Audio ripped straight from PAX: West’s Canceling the Apocalypse panel (2018):
Join a group of industry vets and professional voice actors on stage for the return of the most apocalyptic panel ever created. In a highly-irradiated landscape ruled by misshapen mutants, five unlikely heroes gather to save the world… again. Canceling the Apocalypse is a live escape-room, choose-your-own adventure game created specifically for PAX West 2018, complete with role-playing, video game trivia, dice-rolling, time travel, complex math, and ample audience participation.
Featuring: Ash Sevilla [Host, Nerd Appropriate], Dayeanne Hutton [Life is Strange, Voice Actor], Kate Dollarhyde [Narrative Designer, Obsidian], Erin Yvette [Wolf Among Us / Oxenfree, Voice Actor], Kelly Wallick [Overlord / Founder, Indie MEGABOOTH], Sean Baptiste[Influencer Manager, Bethesda]
*NOTE* The audio levels are a bit wonky, but we were sort of at the mercy of the on-site mixer. Hang in there!
