The Gaming Goddess podcast is kicking off its sixth season after a rather short break here with a special video episode! Some of you may be wondering why it was that I was bringing the show back so soon, yet you can thank Q of the Button Smashers Blog for encouraging me to get back into it when I appeared on Episode 52 of the Button Smashers Podcast! So, in this episode, I talk some about this new season of the show, give a couple quick reviews (in particular of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, now that the series on that game is over, on my Tecknet 1080p webcam, and a pair of Gamester Gear headphones I was recently given by the company). I also talk about the reasons for why I have switched over from Twitch to YouTube Live and discuss the advantages and disadvantages of those two services. And then, you know, I get into a couple random topics and talk about some ongoing and upcoming projects of mine :)

On the evening of June 28, I felt compelled to do one more episode of The Gaming Goddess podcast for the season, despite having claimed that the 10th episode may have been the final one for Season 5. And, to boot, I decided to make this one a video episode as well. The main reason for this was that I felt that we needed to end the season on a strong, personal note, and given the wonderful support I have had from fans of the podcast and friends of the the sites I work with, I felt a personal message with a thank-you was the best way to go about this.
So, once again, thank you guys for all your support of all the things I do, and me as an individual.

The podcast this season has been a bit more erratic than I would have liked, but nonetheless it is still going strong, I think! As it turns out, my life has been busy lately and I’ve had other projects that have kind of stepped into the foreground, but nonetheless I do care about the podcast as it is a staple of this site!
This episode, recorded on June 17, 2014, is a “traditional” podcast episode rather than a video podcast. I wanted to show that I still believe in the fundamental roots of the podcast format, and I think it also is much easier to record. Doing videos requires editing of course, but also when you are on camera there is a different dynamic. Here, I can just relax and record what comes to mind, keeping it chill and enjoyable. That’s not to say that I don’t like doing video logs and the like – I do – but I also enjoy doing it this way!
In this episode, I talk about how out of touch I had been with this year’s E3, discuss a few things that I liked hearing about from it, talk about some of my ongoing projects (like my new series on The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings), and more. It’s a nice, laid-back, and conversational episode.
Music in this episode was provided by YouTuber TheLegendOfRenegade and consists of Mega Man remixes.

GG 05-10: “Projecting with Allahweh” (MP3)
Lately, I’ve been doing a bit of thinking about what I want to work on as far as my gaming side of things goes. I’m one of those people that likes to have projects to work on and goals to work on fulfilling, and I realize that lately I have had other things going on, and these things have kind of detracted from me getting to work on things I would like. Also, I think that having stuff to focus on can be therapeutic in a way because it gives you focus and helps you not keep thinking about stuff you shouldn’t be, or dwelling in negative stuff or whatever the case may be.
Of course, one thing I need to do is work on and finish Season 5 of the podcast. However, I don’t want to just rush it out and have a half-assed podcast season, which I was almost afraid might happen this spring. There’s no set date that it has to be finished by, and what happens with it is totally up to me, so I should just relax and do what I think is best with it. This means I will be open to having some guests come on the show again, and I know some of you reading this may be interested in coming on and helping continue a rockin’ season of the podcast. So, give that some thought.
Another thing is that I need to get back into doing more live-streams and video content, but particularly live-streams. I’ve been really lax about that lately, and I apologize. I know that people have had a really good time with some of the streams I have done and I would like to continue bringing fun content to you all. It’s just a matter of getting into the spirit of it again. It does take drive, for one, and it also takes feeling in a certain sociable mood to actually do it. I definitely want to kick off Series 2 of The Retro Play Show as I know a lot of people have looked forward to it, but I’d also like to do more stuff that features Guild Wars 2, some other games, and also maybe some horror games. I always thought that could be cool to do! :)
I’ve also got to focus on getting the Extra Life drive up and running. So far, it has only raised $40, and I really want to hit at least $200 by the end of the year. We just need to buckle down, get the word out, and have some fun! :)
So, that’s a quick rundown of my thought process here. Let’s strive to bring more awesomeness to the table! :)
This episode, recorded on May 6, 2014, is basically me catching everyone up on all the things going on in my life.
The podcast had taken an unexpected break from March to May, despite being mid-season, so I lovingly called this a “mid-season break” so I would not feel quite as bad. Here, I explain why I’ve been so busy lately, what all has been going on with me, and then talk about some drama I had to deal with from a guild I was previously (until recently) part of in Guild Wars 2.
I do get a bit personal this episode, but this was really therapeutic for me!

This episode is the second one to feature the awesome Jericho Bull (@ActWon1), and it is doubly awesome because it hits on a topic that is very important to me: social justice. While Episode 5 of the season was more of a get-to-know-you type of thing with him, this one really hits home on a lot of topics and it is very refreshing to talk with Jericho about them. He is a firm believer in equality of all types, shares some of his experiences in the gaming world and beyond when it comes to racism, sexism, and other -isms, and he and I discuss things that can be done to help promote equal rights.
Jericho was an outstanding guest this season, and I welcome him back to talk about social justice or any gaming or media topic he wants to discuss!

GG 05-06: “Won for Equality” (MP3)
Recorded on February 6, 2014, this episode features the first ever appearance of Jericho Bull (@ActWon1) on The Gaming Goddess podcast!
Act Won and I originally met back in 2012 when he sat in on a Massively live-stream of “Guild Wars 2″ that I was a guest co-host on and then we started to correspond over email and Twitter. He’s really been a great friend, and I was very excited when he agreed to be a guest on the podcast this season! A lot of this episode is spent getting to know him, talking about games and TV shows we both enjoy, and other casual but fun topics!
