  1. Pegheads,

    Absolutely love the episode…I, too, was enamored early-on by the relationship conversations among all of you. Obviously, things evolve over time, but at your core, I still sense the relationship undertones…thanks!

    I did have to laugh that no one sounded particularly chipper during the introductions…it almost sounded as if someone woke-up Robb for the podcast.

    I adore Alien Artifacts and I would love to get that to the table Robb, if you have time at Origins.

    Patrick ~ thanks for the Jethro Tull bumper music…always appreciated!

    This was an interesting episode insofar as I’m not that interested in HOLAS (there you go, Josh), nor have I played Railroad Revolution.

    Another great couple of hours with you fine Pegheads.

    Cheers,
    Joe

    1. Ha. I actually re-listened to the intro and you are right. Fun fact: That was take 4 of our intros. I would have to listen back to the outtakes, but there was something that kept slipping one (or all) of us up and we couldn’t get 20 seconds into the recording that night without someone screwing something up.

      1. Ha! Such is the life of a producer…you do a great job, Patrick. I do not envy those who put together a podcast.

  2. A challenge or just a thought on rating a game, hopefully I have the right show where you used a 5 point scale.

    I wonder if a game you wouldn’t put into your collection or library should not earn a score greater than 3. The tendency I notice is inflation of score, maybe it is politeness etc; However, as the hosts said they wouldn’t put the game in their library. Then the game is average for them, nothing standing out to push them into purchase. We maybe should be willing to say it is a 2 or 3 for me, but might be a 4 for you. Just a thought.

    1. A 6 point scale, but yes. For us 3 is just below average, not offensive, but not remarkable. While a 3 might stay in our collection, more often than not it won’t.

    2. I should add also, that at least for myself I try to apply more of an objective standard for my rating. Therefore, if a game is well crafted and sets out to do what it was designed to do, even if I don’t personally enjoy it, I will still give it credit.
