Game on!

After a bit of an editing hiatus (sorry about that), we are back at it! Over our summer vacation, we had the first opportunity ever to get together as an entire GOON group and play some games, so we played a bunch of board games!

Many games were played – those we discuss on this episode is Deadwood by Fantasy Flight Games, Tokaido from Passport Game Studios, Boss Monster by Brotherwise Games and Battlestar Gallactica from Fantasy Flight Games.

We also discuss what we’ve been playing for video games, as well as preview our next game for the Gamecast, Rogue Legacy.

Also, we’re having a… SHOW NOTES CONTEST! If you’re reading this, you can win! Just email gameongoons@gmail.com with what games and/or TV Shows each of our five break music songs are from/referencing (the last one is a tad tricky). First person to guess correctly gets a free month of PS Plus! (more…)

I’ve never been much for handheld gaming. Maybe it’s because my parents wouldn’t buy me a Gameboy, but I’ve never really seen the point. If I’m at home, I have a console with superior graphics to play. If I’m on the road, there are things to do or see and books to read. I rarely take mass transit to work, and when I do I usually read. I’ve never really understood the fuss about handheld gaming. I went nearly 30 years without a handheld system. Why do I need one now?

Because they rock.
