Greetings loyal listeners and thanks for joining us on another episode of the Grown As Gamers podcast. This week we’re joined by friend of the show Bobby Harring who will be sharing some of his experiences at GenCon with us later in the episode. To kick things off right we get right into what we played this week. James starts off the segment with a timely impression on the mysterious PT that showed up on PS4 this past week. Short version is that it’s creepy as all get out. Long version is that he had to stop playing and let Cory finish the demo for him because it got so unnerving. After reliving the trauma of PT, James also plugged his favorite summer show The Last Ship once again and tells you that you should be watching it. Nate had to be coerced into sharing his experiences with the old Avalon Hill game (which is now being published by Fantasy Flight Games) Nexus Ops. Nexus Ops is a strategy game that finds players taking on the roles of megacorps trying to edge each other out of lucrative mining operations on a planet full of indigenous mercenaries. Ray finished the summer run on Suits and feels it’s something that you should be watching. He has also found himself very impressed by the freshmen SyFy show Dominion. Finally he officially announced his entrance into the current generation of consoles with his decision to purchase a PS4. Fred, despite frustrations, has been trying his hand at Rocksmith in order to leave us all and start a successful band. He’s also been playing more Titanfall and continues the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles binge that has been captivating his TV time the past few weeks. Our special guest Bobby spent the week catching up on his DVR with episodes of The Quest, Defiance, and favorite of James and Nate – Face Off.
After talking about what they did in the past week Bobby talks about his recent GenCon experience playing in and running Pathfinder games for Paizo. The turn out for the events in the Paizo hall of GenCon was immense and Bobby shares some staggering numbers in regards to attendance. The future looks bright for nerds as some of the most surprising info came from how young some of the kids playing and GMing actually were. Bobby also gives us some info on what we can look forward to at Save Against Fear (coming up September 12-14). Before we leave you for the week we want to know what you guys are most looking forward too in the coming year in regards to board games and RPG’s in the comments below.
