On this special edition podcast we present the audio from the PAX East Panel: Foreplay, Romance in Games with our very own, Hilary. This awesome panel was moderated by Sean Baptiste from Fire Hose Games, featuring Aenne and Melissa from Reset Transmission and our pals, Miellyn and Lacy Wilson from Tin Man Games. Oh, and Raphael Sbarge was kind enough to make a surprise appearance on the panel, enjoy!
I’m sure people are wondering why I am even bothering to write about a game which is almost 8 years old. In the interests of full disclosure, I hadn’t even played Jade Empire till last week at the insistence of @arch4ngel. Now that I have played, and loved the game, I want to talk about it.
Natalie takes a look at the latest from the Dragon Age comic series, tacking the three issues of “Those Who Speak.”
The second BioWare panel at Geek Girl Con titled, “Myth of the Female Gamer Perspective,” was an attempt to explore and generate discussion on what can be a polarizing topic. Karin Weekes (senior editor) moderated the panel while the panelists included were: Sheryl Chee (writer); Jessica Merizan (community manager); Sarah Hayward (cinematic designer); Melanie Fleming (localization producer) and Kris Schoneberg (level designer).
After having a wonderful time, making new friends, and exploring Seattle last October, I decided to once again make the trek back this year for the second Geek Girl Con. I wasn’t the only one returning to GGC, the delightful ladies of Bioware joined me as well. This year there were two panels, the first of which was a presentation on the life cycle of a level. Moderated by Jessica Merizan, panelists included, Mary Kirby (writer), Raylene Deck (level designer), Sarah Hayward (cinematic designer), Karin Weekes (senior editor), and Melanie Fleming (localization producer).
On this special episode Ash and Scott take you through our interviews from San Diego Comic Con 2012. Ash meets up with David Gaider, the lead writer of BioWare’s Dragon Age, during preview night. Next, we talk to the busy ladies form Team Unicorn about Voltron and toy collecting. Finally, a fun chat with actress Courtenay Taylor (Jack from Mass Effect) at the BioWare base about voice acting… and Floaty Pens? We also bring you some audio from the Firefly 10th anniversary panel and press conference. Shiny.
The story of Firefly is one of swashbuckling space heroes, evil mega-corporations, and above all else, friendship. Ten years after its premature cancellation, Firefly is more popular than ever with “Jane hat” wearing fans all over the ‘verse. We were incredibly honored to be asked to cover the 10th anniversary panel and subsequent press conference
We achieve audio engineering excellence as we talk about Microsoft Surface, Xbox, Amazon TV, Nintendo 3DS XL and the much anticipated Mass Effect Extended Cut. We review Brave, Dragon Age: Dawn of the Seeker, Beseiged 2, and continue the Summer Game Pile series. Finally, your responses about your jobs in the Star Wars universe. Silky Smooth!
Holy guacamole, PAX Prime is sold out and Avengers is selling like hotcakes.
