Greetings once again loyal listeners and welcome once again to your weekly vertical slice of gaming goodness and geek culture. On this installment of Fragments of Silicon,  which will take place live this Wednesday at 9:00 PM EDT, we shall welcome the current president of the long running Canadian developer founded by the late programmer Seumas McNally of IGF Grand Prize fame, Long bow Games. In recent times the developer has been trying its hand at creating historical real time strategy games with its successful Hegemony series which recently saw the release of its third installment in which 25 factions battle to unify the Italian peninsula under their banner and dominance and taking place in the very early days of Rome. Our Topic Of Discussion this week shall be on a retrospective of SNK Playmore given that they have been recently taken over by a Chinese consortium of investors. 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, iTunes or the PodcastAddict App for Android.
