Shacknews Chattycast 08: A What-Load?

In which the gang laments lost games and sneaks trading cards past TSA agents.


This week, the regular Chattycast panel is all back together, inasmuch as you can call them "regular." The gang discusses non-gaming hobbies, studio acquisitions, vaporware, Pokemon on iPad, and Goodwill's gaming store. All that and a disturbingly thorough examination of where you might hide trading cards await you, and all you have to do is press play.

Thanks as always to our topic suggesters this week: Degenerate, mindmann, Nerdsbeware, the man with the briefcase, and harold.johnson. If you us to appreciate you too, make sure to keep an eye on Chatty next Tuesday and suggest some topics of your own!

      Ozzie knows what's up. Prey 2 all the way. I wish Bethesda hadn't tried to acquire the development studio by force. Prey 3 would've just been around the corner. Someone needs to do a Rob Zacny-esque feature on the unmaking on that game.

      Do you know that to this day, Bethesda's hasn't been in touch with either the developers, composers, anyone to tell them their work was cancelled?

      Question: what is the metric you rely on to determine listenership? For example, a lot of podcasts ask you to rate them on iTunes, but I can't stand Apple's implementation and avoid it like The Plague. (I use Downcast instead). However, if that's what you use as well, I'm willing to pinch my nose for a couple of minutes and register my enthusiasm for it there.
