(or whatever you do with the Googles), check out the event page on IndiePlus.

Todd on Self-Critical Hits and a Nerds For Reel Shout Out

Hey. I’m in the new episode of Self-Critical Hits. You should be listening to them anyway, but if you’ve never heard them before, head over and listen to me chat with them about GMless games and other random stuff, as well as them do some reviews including one of the really cool seeming The Quiet Year.

Also, I want to give a shout out to my

buddy Andrew and his podcast Nerds For Reel. They challenge each other to watch awful movies and then sit around and make fun of them. It’s that simple. It’s that brilliant. If you appreciate the humorous deconstruction of lovably crappy movies, and who doesn’t, you should be listening and enjoying.

So there you go. Two podcasts to add to your feed. Between those two podcasts and the Jank Cast, your weekly commute is pretty much covered.

Todd’s Gencon Wrap Up

So Gencon is over. I didn’t make the whole thing because I’m buried under a metric ton of work which is sucking my will to live, but the con was, nonetheless, a blast. I played:

1) My Life With Master. Master (in this case, Mistress) won. Hardcore.
2) Misspent Youth, which was FANTASTIC. Expect more reviewing of it in the future.
3) Zombie Cinema, in which Timo and I both bit it spectacularly and satisfyingly.
4) Zombie Dice and Cthulu Dice. Both fun.
5) Something else… I swear. It will come to me.

Swag round up:

1) Labyrinths and Lycanthropes. Looks like a fun dungeon crawler.
2) Kagematsu. How pretty is this game?
3) Remember Tomorrow. If Gregor Hutton’s name on it, I’m sure it’s sweet.
4) Montsegur 1244. Right up my alley. Burning heretics. Sold.
5) Annalise. I mostly got this for my ladyfriend’s sister whose name is Annalise. It looks pretty sweet, having said that.
6) Apocalypse World, which is sweet looking. This is our next campaign.

Please click all above links. Anyone? What did you play and pick up?
