XABY ep 2: Oh god the lines

Alright so Episode 2 of XABY is finally up. It is a little bit later this time because our sound producer had some real work which he had to do since we sure as hell aren’t paying him.

Most of my TGS impressions are there so I am not going to write them up here. However I do have a very quick story I wanted to share. As the show came to a close I noticed a few of my buddies had some awesome Ryu ga Gotoku 3 posters which I wanted to get my hands on. Without any real prospect of finding one I took off back to the Sega booth to ask around. Of course everyone I asked said they had all been given out, which left me a bit disappointed. Just as I caught my breath and prepared to return to my friends empty-handed I noticed a line forming near me. As I circled around to get a better look, I realized it was people waiting in line to speak with the producer of the Ryu ga Gotoku series, Toshihiro Nagoshi. There were only a few people lining up so I just slipped in the back. He was caught up in a conversation with a beautiful woman which took the better part of 10 minutes before taking pictures with the people in front of me. It came to my turn and I told him how much I love his games and how excited I was for the third in the series. He was nice enough but didn’t seem to interested in talking to me or the people in front of me. Can’t really blame him considering who we followed after.


XABY Radio: wasting our time talking about games

October 9, 2008 at 2:11 pm | Posted in Everyday Life | 1 Comment

I was recently invited to join a podcast by Nayan Ramachandran of HDRL fame. It is basically myself, Nayan, Eric Koziel from Book of Revenant, Segata Sanshiro from Neogaf, and Arne Meyer from Naughty dog wasting time talking about what games we are playing and other topics which are related to the gaming industry. This is the first edition of what is planned to be a bi-weekly podcast. It ended up going quite a bit better than we expected, and I have to say I am looking forward to the next one. This first one is a little bit on the long side but please take a listen and leave any comments you would like.

This is the official site for the podcast or you can just download directly from here.
