Event[0]


A lost spaceship
628,300,000 km from Earth
The only way to get back home is to negotiate with the last crew member
A computer

That blurb from the trailer sums it up pretty nicely. It's like the aftermath of 2001: A Space Odyssey if Dave Bowman hadn't managed to disable HAL9000. At least, that's what it seems like; I don't actually have any idea what happened to the crew. Maybe it's not the computer's fault—innocent until proven guilty.

The most interesting aspect of this game is that you communicate with the computer not through a selection of pre-programmed actions, but by typing at it. And the range of things it's capable of responding to seems vast.

Join us in plumbing the depths of space and of the Turing Test tonight at 9pm ET in Event[0]!

Quest for the (Early) Throne - King's Quest


We have embarked once again on the Quest for the Throne, now on the Early Throne Special!


This old cap will be remembered for far more than the action tattered across its brim. Sewn into the seams are many hidden adventures.

An aging King Graham (voiced by Christopher Lloyd) recounts some of his earliest adventures, before he was even a knight of Daventry.

It's been a while since we played a King's Quest game! Not that there's any others left to play. (Deliberately ignoring the existence of KQ8 here.) Excited to see what adventures lay in store!

Join us today at 3pm ET as we begin The Odd Gentlemen's King's Quest!

Thursday Throne - Assassin's Creed: Revelations


Following the events of Brotherhood, Desmond's brain is broken. He's been placed in a prototype Animus loop, allowing him to rebuild his psyche as he explores more of his genetic memories. Inside, he meets Subject 16, whose mind lives on in the machine, though his body has long since failed. The memories he now explores see Ezio traveling to the Holy Land to see what answers might still lie in Masyaf. Of course, the Templars know the importance of this site, and have not simply left it unattended. Ezio is an old man now, as well; his constitution is not what it once was.

We began Revelations last week, in the half-hour or so remaining in our timeslot after beating Brotherhood. The above paragraph serves effectively both as an introduction to the game and as a recap to where we are thus far.

So join us tonight at 9pm ET as we take a full-size foray into Assassin's Creed: Revelations!

Bishoujo Senshi Sailormoon: Another Story


He comes from far away...

From the depth of darkness, he continues to wander. Soon, the void of the darkness is interrupted by something. The darkness is shone upon by the light. The light covers the darkness, and the darkness is no more.

Then the light and the darkness are one.

Something terrible is about to happen in the future, so it's up to the Sailor Senshi in the present to do something about it, but the villains have also come back in time to foil them...or something. It's a very anime plot.

Join us tonight at 9pm ET as we begin Bishoujo Senshi Sailormoon: Another Story!

Thursday Throne - Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood - Session 16


Okay, so last week we caught up on the glyphs or whatever they're called in this one, and wow, that's the kind of story stuff I wish the rest of the game had. Lots of lore illumination, I love it.

Join us tonight at 9pm ET as we continue Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood!

The Blackwell Epiphany - FINALE


So! We got really close to the end on Early Throne Special, and things were really ramping up. Even Cyan got drawn in by it and forgot he was next up on the stream. None of us want to leave things on a cliffhanger like that for two weeks, so Brendan & Mabry will be returning in a couple hours and we will bring this series to a grand conclusion!

Join us tonight at 9pm ET for the finale of The Blackwell Epiphany!

(And then, in the remaining time, probably Everything.)

Dynasty Warriors 8 - Session 10


This is probably going to be our last night with this game. We've cleared all the actual story paths, and all that remains are the little one-off battles—some are canonical, like the Yellow Turban Rebellion, while others...well, Dong Zhuo having a fighting tournament was one of them.

Join us tonight at 9pm ET as we fill in the gaps on Dynasty Warriors 8!
