Darker Days Radio Episode #37
White Wolf Appreciation Hangout
Subtitle: The Wrath of Gone
Mike and Chris are joined by Joe, Steve, Ian, Michael, Vampire: the Requiem developer Russell Baily, and James to chill on Google Hangout and talk about the new release schedule for August 2012 to August 2013. It's a zanny episode with technical glitches and being in the wrong hang out, and a Vampire developer who's mic doesn't work.
Yeah, an awesome time was had by all.

Yet another long rambling post…
War Against the Pure has templates and how to create your own changing breed. Blasphemies has a Jaguar changing breed you can use against players. But yeah… WOD 2.0 Changing Breeds had a lot of backlash towards it in the way it was presented and how the changing breeds were overpowered compared to the Forsaken. The hyena shapeshifter in there is a huge step backwards towards W:tA Revised’s Ajaba (Retcon from Bastet Breed Book). It sounds more like an evil stereotypical Gnoll than an actual hyena. Jane Goodall wrote Innocents Killers back in 1971, so I don’t know how that can excuse anyone from falling back to the Lion King for their depiction of hyenas. The Hyena Claimed in Skinchangers are way more interesting than Changing Breeds’ Riantes.
Most people seem to use Forsaken’s War Against the Pure instead of WOD 2.0 Changing Breeds.
But, I can’t wait for W20’s Changing Breeds: Ajaba, ajaba, ajaba!
Battle of the Planets is also known as Science Ninja Team Gatchaman. But it seems everyone tries to make WOD fanbooks on Death Note: But I haven’t seen anything inspired by Code Geass yet.
Tellus was a play on Sega. It’s in how you say it: Tell-us, Se-gaa. As a video gamer interested in video game history and politics: Hoo boy, this area is going to change a lot and they are going to need someone who knows their stuff here. Violent Video Games? Sooo 1995-1998… I expect Tellus to be in the big family-friendly “Causal” Game Market like the Nintendo Wii, putting out really bad cheap motion-wand shovel ware or App games (Angry Birds). Or to become like Electronics Arts: See the reaction over the Mass Effect 3 ending for a great example of that or Spoony’s review of Ultima 9. EA takes over other game companies in need of cash, firing most of their staff, making them push out a game in a small time seclude with little staff, doesn’t correct any of the bugs, and doesn’t give one iota of care towards the game’s fans. The game fans become outraged at the game, while EA rinses it’s hands and goes on to do a repeat on another game company. And Tellus can make games that are nothing but escort missions: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xr6L7-yVp0s
Avalon and OmniTV can work together to make “My Little Wolves”, an animated show with tons of toys that spawns a big fandom known as “Brolves”.
Besides Print on Demand: What about “video” internet reviewers? Is Thatguywiththeglasses.com, Youtube, Blip.TV part of OmniTV? Do we need an evil Google’ish company to the list of Pentex companies?
Name for the Darker Days Mascot? Incus. Incus is part of the middle ear bones (Malleus, Incus and Stapes) and transmits sound waves or vibrations to the ear. The mascot appears as a skull wearing headphones, so I thought using one of the middle ear bones would be good for a name. And it would be great name relating to a radio show.
*can’t load plugin* Any idea how I fix this?
Nevermind. I fixed it. I was hoping for some secret frequencies in this episode, but alas…
