The 1st 10 Minutes at PAX AUS 2015!

Big news; we will be holding a panel at PAX AUS 2015! Details of the time, date, and room location are still being finalised, but watch this space!

We’ve also begun moving all our hosting to SoundCloud. If you haven’t been automatically updated, you can access the new feed by clicking here. If you’re not sure whether you’ve been switched over, don’t worry! We’ll put a message in the old feed once the switch becomes final.

We don’t have an episode again this week; we’ve had a hectic time for the last few weeks in preparation for this exciting news.  We will be back with a new episode next Sunday, and in the meantime, please check out the new SoundCloud feed, and feel free to catch up on episodes from our extensive back-catalog!

Ep 28 Delayed

Unfortunately we are unable to post an episode for you this week. As the great John Lennon said “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans”. We shall return next week when we will be playing:

  • Steve – AI War: Fleet Command
  • Aaron – Neverending Nightmares
  • Tony – Far Cry 2

Ep 020 Delayed

Unfortunately Episode 020 will not go live this evening (3rd May). A combination of an extreme weather event, and a surprise we have in store, have forced a delay. Fear not though, currently Ep 020 looks like it will be recorded and released by Wednesday this week (6th May)!

Tony – Sid Meier’s Civilization: Beyond Earth
Steve – Alice: Madness Returns
Aaron – Lone Survivor: The Director’s Cut

We’re going to be extra busy this week and have Episode 021 up, on schedule, next Sunday (10th May). Thanks for listening!

UPDATE: After some further discussion this initial plan was scrapped. Not because we couldn’t record in time. It was decided that it would be better to stick to the Sunday releases and not risk the the special surprise be missed by our listeners if it hit mid week.

Steam Sale: Unforeseen Consequences

So, ’twas the season not too long ago, and at the end of one of The 1st 10 Minutes’ earlier episodes, Steve made mention his intention to get festive and fill Tony and Aaron’s stockings with some of the less pricey offerings in the Steam Sale, especially if they were titles on their wishlist. Tony and Aaron thought it was such a great idea that they decided to get in on the merriment as well.

It had a harmless origin, but what began as a kind and generous gesture among friends soon became a far different beast. You see, a thought began to collectively grow in Steve, Tony and Aaron’s heads, a thought that any game gifted could at some point be rolled, and be played, and be talked about on The 1st 10 Minutes. And why stop at interesting titles on one’s wishlist when there was a veritable smorgasbord of titles all available for less than a dollar when the sleigh bells were ringing and the snow was glistening. Remember last Christmas when I gave you my heart? Well, this Christmas I’m giving you a warehouse and logistics simulator set in Hell.

It wasn’t all in the name of evil, though. They may have given each other some turkeys, but they’re turkeys they felt were worth talking about. And that’s the theme that runs through all of these titles. Good or bad, they were gifts that they felt could generate some interesting discussion in future episodes. Like it or not, that unicorn farm game is really popular, and it would be interesting to have a crack at analysing why that is.

So get familiar with the following lists, folks, because who knows? An unforeseen consequence could be just around the corner. See you soon, everyone.
