Accidental Survivors: the Modern Gaming Podcast
1. Geek Week
It was Rob's birthday! He got Pandemic
(and has managed to play once so far), and got Grand Theft Auto 4
for PC (and has spoken about it a bit on his blog, Gamer Dad Weekly
). Upcoming this week, He's getting together with The New Survivors
(named thusly just to piss off Fraser) for Warhammer 40k Dark Heresey campaign's group template planning session. He got Fraser and Dave hooked on TweetDeck
, and he's following people like Greg Grunberg (@greggrunberg
), Wil Wheaton (@wilw
) and Felicia Day (@feliciaday
). And David Gallant (@davidsgallant
Dave came along via recording to let us know that since we last met, he's become an Assistant Manager in Training at EB Games (store #1700, Queen st. & Airport rd. Brampton, if anyone wants to see a real live podcast-person)
fighting off angry mothers desparate for Wii's and Wii Fit's. He's still playing some LittleBigPlanet
, as well as Ana's Christmas gift, a JRPG called Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World
. Also nearly finished a great Capcom story game on the DS, Ace Attorney: Apollo Justice
. He's getting buried in Twitter messages thanks to TweetDeck, struggling financially to make ends meet, and being a human pincushion for his three cats.
Chuck got a Wii (cause it's awesome, which is why it's still hot), and he's got to remember to give Rob and Chris his Wii number. He is also checking out Legend of the Seeker
