Greetings once again loyal listeners and welcome to your final weekly vertical slice of gaming goodness and geek culture for the season. Granted the off season only lasts a couple of weeks, but we need to occasional break from doing this program nonetheless. At any rate, this week we shall be welcoming one half of the brotherly duo who founded another independent developer with a few years to its name, Andrew Allanson of Ackk Studios. Already to their name, Ackk has developed and released a Zelda-styled adventure game using a Game Boy aesthetic called Two Brothers, a port of which is currently under development for the Wii U under the heading Cromophore: Two Brothers Director’s Cut. Also in development is the upcoming JRPG game which throwback to 1990s culture called YSK currently in development for the PC and PS4. The Topic Of Discussion this week will be looking at the current state of Valve and no I don’t suppose Half-Life 3 will be confirmed within our lifetimes at this point. As always be sure to tune into the program live on Talkshoe this Thursday at 10:00 PM EST/7:00 PM PST or if you miss the show be sure to download from Talkshoe, iTunes or the PodcastAddict App for Android. Also be sure to join our Steam Group linked below.
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.
