Great guest for this episode! I really wanted to go to MAGfest this year, but I am going to do my best to make it down next January. I know PAX East is a big deal, but MAGfest is pretty special with their focus on music. Also its location in the DC-Baltimore area makes it convenient for a lot more people.

Kidding aside, he a lot of interesting and informative things to say. Props to him on starting such a great convention. I think he was just a little nervous and excited to share his story. Nothing wrong with that. Good episode. ^_^

^I kiiiiiind of agree with this :|

It was cool to hear about and learn of MAG but the path toward reaching that was a little bit confusing..

Haha... Man... Now I really know Gamester was offended by the whale VS his dog drawing. Maybe I can whip up a redemptive one where he is owning the whale..

Also P.S. Johnny has already planted the seed for a "Corpulent Console Gamer" drawing by saying he's cool with one of him being a fatass ahahaha...

i agree here. It was really interesting to hear about the origins of a gaming con kinda near me, as well as the end days of a console company; but for whatever reason(nervousness, excitement), he rambled on a bit.

I see this as an opportunity to show the crew how to keep the podcast on course. I seem to remember them asking like their third question nearing about an hour in. with that said I give you this: [sonicrun]

Thank you Johnny for mentioning to talk about video games. I was going through Pete withdrawals for a hour and a half there.

Check this every Wednesday night between 6-9pm EST. There's a bit of a delay between when Jason gets it uploaded to the host and when Pete gets a chance to update the website/RSS feed with the link.

I have this one for OKS too, for anyone else who listens:

Great episode, didn't mind the extra long chatter about MAGFest and Irvin Kershner. Yes you're a gaming podcast but I find this kind of stuff interesting too.

Great episode! I didn't mind the lack of gaming talk, I actually tuned out a bit when Pete started going on about Sega Saturn games. I hate people talking about that system because I don't understand it and that scares me.

One of my least favorite episodes. I was anticipating it but was disappointed. You're right. It was like....wrap it up dude. Some of the stories he told were really pointless too. I'm like 1.5 hours in and I have yet to here Pete or Jason talk for more than a sentence.

Hey All Gen!

Magfest sounds really cool. Hearing these stories make me wish I had held on to my Turbo Duo.

A buddy of mine was moving, and gave me his Turbo Duo. This thing was dead weight to me. I was a Sega fan boy and cared little for the machine. I even called my friend to take it back! lol

Boy what a mistake...I ended up losing this gem when I moved. Sucks for me!

Can you post that video on the Old Republic you guys were talking about? Where the Republic people would get slaughtered instantly. It sounds hilarious!

Thanks!
