E1: Introductions

by Brian Fife


Recorded on June 26th, 2012 with Brian Fife, James Fingal, and Thomas Westberg.

Brian, Jim and Tom talk about beloved games and give some general background on their goals and interests regarding games. They each provide the following background info:

  • Five games you love
  • A game you wish you loved, but you can't
  • Your most memorable gaming experience
  • A pet peeve in gaming (something that is easy to fix or avoid)
  • A wish or dream (something that is hard to fix or do)
  • What games you are playing now

[Editor's Note] There was a technical error with this recording and some of Jim's discussion right at the beginning was lost.
