Episode 58: You or Shub-Niggurath Walk Out of The Room

September 27th, 2013 | Robin

If it’s late September, it must be time for Robin to exit bleary-eyed from the Lightbox theater and stumble into the Cinema Hut to regale us with his findings from the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival. Listen to Ken wish he had more crossover with the upcoming Chicago Film Festival, or follow along at home.

Then Ken and Robin Recycle Audio, capping off their suite of excerpts from the Gen Con GUMSHOE panel.

Finally, popular demand decrees that we venture into the Eliptony Hut to tackle the recent appearance of a monument to Azathoth in Ken’s old stomping ground, Oklahoma City.

    We refresh much more quickly. The players have usually blown through big numbers of points in two or three sessions. In NBA too, we were not shy in our spends.

    Future gaming hut idea: I few times you’ve mentioned older games that have been influences on your modern designs. How about some more games that were “ahead of their time?”

    Would you please post a list of the film titles discussed. They went by so quickly it was difficult to follow the discussion.
