TKV Team Podcast 51 | “Beta’n You’ll Like It”

TKVTeam_Logo2015This week is a whole lot of discussion about the (now) public beta for Star Wars Battlefront, which unfortunately…ends the same day as our airing. Karol makes the credible threat that he’ll be buying Disney Infinity 3.0 in the coming days, and we try to keep our 90s-era science fiction titles straight.

Mistakes were made, but we’re not so selfish as to keep them to ourselves.

Misdirected Mark Podcast Episode #173 Teaser – Planning

iIPNV9aqUYrGsHey Folks. On our next episode we cover planning in RPGs in the workshop. As I love to define terms here’s the definition of plan:



: a set of actions that have been thought of as a way to do or achieve something
: something that a person intends to do
: a detailed agreement for telephone service, medical care, insurance, etc.


Don’t worry, I’m pretty sure out discussion will cover the first of those definitions but I wonder what kind of insurance plan I can get as an adventurer.

Anyways the rest of the show with have the Extra Dimensional Social Media Depository and a Game Spotlight on Laser’s and Feelings which you can get for free over at OneSevenDesign.com

Hope to see you online on Tuesday evening at 8:45 for the live recording on our website in the chat room where we stream the show.

TKV Team Podcast 46 | “Too Hot in Herre”

TKVTeam_Logo2015Karol and Tim do everything possible to avoid talking about the Konami-shaped elephant in the room that is the release of the new Metal Gear, so we gripe about the heat and hit up some unexpected news of a new Pikmin. We also play catch-up on recent playtime with games new and old. Tim bites his tongue so he won’t bore the room about a certain racing title hitting in just a scan few days. We make no mention of Marty O’Donnel wrecking house in the legal sense in his case against Bungie, but that’s also a thing that happened. Happy Tuesday.
