Greetings once again loyal listeners, and welcome one again to your vertical slice of gaming goodness and geek culture. Right, before delving into what is in store for Fragments of Silicon this week a programming note must be made. Due to some changes in the daytime working schedule of our esteemed executive producer we will moving the live broadcast to another day. More details as they become pertinent, be sure to follow the twitter feed below to keep up with the latest news. We shall be making effort to make sure this is a smooth transition with as few bumps along the way as possible. This week it is still business as usual as we welcome the co founder of another young indie founded in this golden age of independent development, John Warner of Over The Moon Games. They have recently released their first title, dubbed The Fall, to PC and much more recently to the Wii U eShop. The game is a moody and atmospheric combination of point-and-click adventure, run-and-gun combat and puzzle platformer. Our topic of discussion this week is a retrospective on one of the most beloved entries of the enduring Dragon Quest franchise, the fourth one Chapters of the Chosen. As always be sure to tune into the program live on Talkshoe this Wednesday at 9:00 PM EST/6:00 PM PST or if you miss the show be sure to download from Talkshoe or iTunes.
Much like the gif file embedded above this here blog, a huge wave of feels washes over me after we conclude almost 5 years of my life on this podcast. It’s no secret that I have been feeling the burn of trying to do this program week after week while feeling that the show was bereft of the purpose that spawned it. I’ve spent the better part of a decade-and-a-half trying to monitize my online endeavors, and then, just when it seemed like we might make it, the rug was pulled again and again. But one thing was certain: without the interviews and that connection MSP gave me to my friends and colleagues in the jungle that is the Internet, I felt adrift at sea. So rather than prolong the agony, just to meet an arbitrary anniversary, I decided to end it. Gracefully. It’s time to move on to other things; other shows. With that in mind, I hope you’ll join us in May when we re-launch Up Late with Mace. I always found that little show to be more about what I have become and where my art has taken me than MSP of late. So it’s time to get back to that. We’ll see you on May 21.
Greetings loyal listeners, it has been quite a long while since I made a personal update to the blog here. About two years, ah well, better late then never. Anyway, so this ends a project I have been working on for a half a decade. It has been a wild ride and its ending fills me with a wide range of emotions. I am not one for long goodbyes so I thank everybody on the cast and all of the wonderful guests we have had. I look forward to seeing all of you in our next ventures.
