Greetings Citizens and Civilians, you’re tuned to episode 131, of Guard Frequency — the best damn space sim podcast ever! This episode was recorded on Friday 5th August 2016 and released for streaming and download on Tuesday, August 9th 2016 at GuardFrequency.com [Download this episode]
This week we load the Host Roulette gun and firing out faster than a speeding bullet are Ostron, Geoff and Kinshadow to bring you another rooty-tootin’ point-and-shootin’ episode of the Best Damn Space Sim Podcast Ever. Kicking us off, in this week’s Squawk Box we check out the US military’s latest combat-ready fighter. On the Flight Deck we see what news has landed from your favourite space-sims as we cover:
- How things ARGOing in Star Citizen
- the interceptor cockpits and what’s coming next for Infinity: Battlescape.
- And a fun little fact about the latest No Man’s Sky leaks. No spoilers, we promise (no links for this one, you’re on your own!)
Next, we debate the hype train, and finally we tune into the Feedback Loop and let you join in on the conversation.
News We Didn’t Use
- GalCop are holding the first ever Elite: Dangerous Olympics to raise money for charity. Sign up to events and go for the gold whilst raising money for Special Effect
- Shroud of the Avatar is running a cross-promotion with Star Citizen. Two packages are available for purchase. Each provides you with items for the Shroud of the Avatar game as well as a ship-based package of goodies for Star Citizen.
In case you missed something…
A quick note for those of you who may have been away from the show for a few weeks and are noticing a distinct lack of dulcet British tones and legal precision. Tony and Lennon have both reluctantly reduced their involvement in regular broadcasting with Guard Frequency. Lennon’s situation has forced him to take an extended, continuous break. Tony is running for State office in Kansas, and his campaign duties mean he can’t commit to regular recording times. Ostron is serving as Lennon’s replacement, and during the times that Tony is unavailable, Mr Kinshadow will be our go-to replacement. In general, though, you’re probably going to hear a greater variety of voices going forward as people adjust their schedules. Geoff, of course, isn’t going anywhere.
This Week’s Community Questions
- Does the hype train assure greater sales and success? Or is it just increasing the risk of disappointed fans?
