Talking about Gaming the Irish Way!

Jun 14, 2017

This week's hosts: Cathal, Sean & Mary

This week the party provide a "well informed" preview of the upcoming QCon convention (16-18 July Queens University Belfast), no wild speculation here!

Show Notes:

  • 01:06 QCon is on from the 16th to the 18th of June, Look at us giving useful information.
  • 02:05 Ah Nostalgia, it will NEVER be as good as it was, regardless of what "it" is.
  • 02:20 Do I now hold the record for the earliest "This party is over"?
  • 03:05 This is where we offer valuable Con advice on bucket requirements and realise we are all very, very poor.
  • 04:35 COSPLAY!!!
  • 05:10 I clearly know nothing about Cosplay, I didn't realise it was tied specifically to anime!
  • 05:15 ANIME (and other movies!)!!!
  • 06:48 Nobody will guess where I spent too many years in college....
  • 07:30 Get it, Mary is old.
  • 07:57 Totally a snob...

  • 22:42 VIDEO GAMES!!! (Console & PC)
  • 23:28 We move from wildly speculating about what games might be on when we don't have a list to wildly speculating about what games might be on and just ignoring the list.... that's progress folks.
  • 24:20 It is not Seann, but there was no need to call attenntionn to it.

  • 27:38 That sound bite is going to come back to bite Mary in the ass during the trial...
