I always seem to have interesting conversations with my good friend Rob Eubank, so its no surprise that this week’s episode of the podcast, in which he once more joins to help host the episode, makes for an interesting listen. Since the topic of intellectual copyright and digital media rights has been under discussion this season of the show, Rob and I talk a bit about that with him sharing his own opinion on the matter with me. We also talk a bit about Star Trek Online and the upcoming Firefly Online, and Rob teases a bit about Star Citizen, which he mentioned briefly in more detail back in Episode 4 this season.
I’m always interested to hear your thoughts on these sorts of topics, so if you want to weigh in on the matter of digital copyright, please share with me!

The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask for the Nintendo 64 is actually one of my favorite of the entries into Nintendo’s long-running franchise, and since February 13 marked the release of the Nintendo 3DS remake of the game, it only seemed fitting to do a special episode focused on thoughts about the game. So, for this episode, Warren C. Bennett is back again as a guest co-host to talk about our memories of the game, to discuss the new remake for the 3DS, and to briefly talk about the fact that February 13 also happened to be the release date of the “New Nintendo 3DS.” Fun times indeed!
As to whether or not I’m going to pick up the New 3DS, you’ll just have to listen in. However, I definitely think that the 3DS itself will be the “star” of a future podcast episode, so stay tuned for more gaming fun!

It seems like there have been quite a few non-gaming topics to cover here lately, and this specific episode’s topic is courtesy of NawkCire from Twitter. He mentioned the concept of “freebooting” and wanted to know our thoughts on it, so here my guest co-host Warren and I talk about the issue in a general sense and then talk about the wider issues with digital copyright and intellectual property theft. As Warren says, it’s a new world we live in, so there are lots of different issues to wrestle with.
In the first few minutes, you’ll also get treated to a bit of a short monologue I provide (in video format!) to address the “addiction” topic again from our previous episode. I wanted to clear up a few things so that no one would claim that we glossed over such a major topic!

This episode of The Gaming Goddess podcast is a bit of a deviation from recent themes. Here, my good friend and returning episode co-host Warren C. Bennett joins me for a more serious topic: Addiction. Warren and I relate stories of our own experiences either first-hand or through people we’ve known that have been addicted to video games, the Internet, and several other things. I even talk about someone I know professionally who is addicted effectively to work and community service to the point of detriment to their family and home life.
If you or anyone you know is struggling with any sort of addiction, know that there are channels through which to seek help. You are not alone!

Late last year, I was contacted by David Andrews, owner of the pretty fantastic website Comic Book & Movie Reviews. He reached out to me initially to see about a bit of cross-promotion potential, but then decided he wanted to do a featured interview of me (in Q&A format) for his site. He asked some really interesting questions, and I think the interview turned out pretty well! :)
David has also asked if I would be interested in writing a column over on his site about once a month, and I’ve tentatively agreed to do so. I think he wants to diversify a little bit with special, semi-regular guest columns and I think that’ll give me some freedom to be creative and spread some of my gaming interests to those who otherwise might not be exposed to it.
As we approach the site’s 4th anniversary, I’ve been thinking a lot about what all I will do here for 2015. Obviously, you can expect The Gaming Goddess podcast to return fairly soon with Rob Eubank possibly joining us once more as either a co-host or recurring featured guest throughout this 7th season! The third series of The Retro Play Show will also be making its debut in the future. I’ve also got some plans for a few really good Let’s Play series and maybe some more live-streaming, so there’s also that to look forward to. Yet, I also want to get back into true blogging and musing, with some of the styles of posts I used to make here (and elsewhere) back when the site was new. Some of my most popular posts were theories on timelines and canonical information, so I’d like to get back into some of that too!
Anyway, thanks for joining me on this awesome ride so far, and let’s make 2015 and beyond great for us all!
Here we are, at the end of the 6th season of The Gaming Goddess podcast and the final episode of 2014! A friend of mine mentioned to me on Twitter that he was surprised we were wrapping things up so early, but I reminded him that we’ve already crammed 15 episodes in for this fall season of the show!
On this special 90-minute episode, my good friend and podcast regular, Rob Eubank (Master_Dex), returns to talk about the Holiday season, discuss some gift-giving ideas, and go off on a wild series of tangents (as if you’d expect anything less by now!). All-in-all, this is a really fun episode and a great way to wrap up the season!
The video version features a personal lead-in and lead-out, so be sure to check those bonus segments out!

In this episode there is a lot up for discussion. First, I mention a couple things going on in my life, particularly with my work in the Guard. Then, I discuss some of the games I have been playing lately, such as Elemental Gimmick Gear, Golvellius II, Zelda: Origin, Parkwatcher 2, and Super Castlevania IV. I discuss the reasons why I dropped Elemental Gimmick Gear and Castlevania: Lament of Innocence and decided not to complete them, and this all works as a good lead-in to another topic I cover: my recent signing-on as a member of the LORT Nation Stream Team!
Since Thanksgiving is next week, Episode 15 (which may or may not be the end of Season 6) won’t be until the first week of December!
