Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale - Session 1.5

Capitalism, ho!

So, a couple weeks ago, after finishing Puzzle Agent 2 halfway through the timeslot, we began — and tonight, will continue — Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale. For those who missed the intro last time, this game puts you in the role of Recette, a young girl paying off her missing father's debts by operating an item shop in a town full of adventurers. Can she make enough money in time? Tune in tonight at 9pm ET and find out!

Front Mission - Session 1

—Operation Briefing—
You are to depart under cover of night from Menasa, a city on Huffman Island which is under the jurisdiction of the Oceana Cooperative Union. Travel via a small submarine 30 kilometers along the coastline to reach the USN-controlled city of Fort Monus. Upon arrival, board the camoflauged ship and make your way to shore. You must then reconnoitre the enemy factory located in the Larcus district.

Due to the political tensions between our two countries, you are absolutely prohibited from engaging in any aggressive actions.

The year is 2090. Huffman Island, a disputed territory off the west coast of Mexico, is a hotbed of conflict. Though the First Huffman Conflict twenty years ago resulted in the division of the island between the Oceana Cooperative Union and the United States of the New Continent, skirmishes continued to break out between the opposing sides for some time. Now, Huffman Island knows an uneasy peace; though not actively at war, the OCU and the USN suspect it will not remain that way for long, and prepare for the coming conflict.

Join us tonight at 9pm ET as John begins this high-tech tactical RPG!

No Sleep till Scoggins

You may have noticed the blog post is going up later than usual. You know why? Because the show is starting later than usual! Ha ha, symmetry. The show will probably continue in this later timeslot for a while, which certainly has some distinct advantages: namely, since there's nobody following our timeslot, we won't have to cut scenes short! That's been frustrating on occasion, at least for me. It's not even a good cliffhanger to end like that.

So tune in tonight at 9pm ET as we continue — and probably conclude — Puzzle Agent 2!

Last time, following a lead from the mysterious Melkorka Teterdottir, we went to investigate the disappearance of Halldor in the forest. There, we encountered Edvard, who led us on a wild chase, eventually sending us tumbling down a hill. He got away, and left us lost...but what's this? A felled tree, with something glinting in its branches...what could it be? That mystery went unsolved, but tonight, answers will be had!

Lone Survivor - Session 2

First up, an important announcement: those of you who have been with us for a while know that our schedule moves back and forth based on the time of year (more specifically, based on regular obligations for most of our hosts). This week marks our return to the 7pm ET start time. If you come early, well, there won't be much to see.

So join us tonight at 7pm ET as we continue our terrifying journey in Lone Survivor! Last time, we managed to trap the giant creature in the lobby and make our way out of the apartment building. What horrors await us outside? Tune in and find out!

Lastly, another important announcement: we will be off next weekend. Barring unforeseen circumstances, we'll return on November 16th.
