In this episode Karf and Elaine get together live on the Internet to discuss VR, Watching dogs, the hypnotic nightmare of Thumper, and how all the money raising for the kids went. Elaine also discusses a desire to finish a Final Fantasy game (SHE DOES NOT HATE THEM) and the duo closes up the aftershow with a discussion of disturbing penis based video games. VIDEO GAMES FOR THE KIDS!
Special Programming Note: We left the preshow chat in before the episode starts and the post show after it ends. This probably makes more sense for joke continuity but let us know what you think! (Also, tell us what you think of the live show. When possible we can make that happen using the joyful services of Twitch if people are into it.)

It’s nearing two weeks’ time since our Extra Life marathon, and we continue to be awed by and grateful for the incredible generosity that you guys have shown in moving us along towards our goal. One thing that we didn’t get to do during the stream that we initially planned on was play Rock Band; our voices and coordination were just too shot by that point, and we didn’t want to bore you all with a bunch of us failing. So, as a thank you, we’ll be putting on a second mini-stream this weekend, where we’ll play Rock Band for a couple of hours (and probably some DJ Hero too). The date for this is Saturday, November 16, and we’re aiming to start somewhere between 9 and 10 PM EST (exact start time is subject to podcast ending time). If you’re not already following our Twitch channel (twitch.tv/etdragon), then do so now! This will allow you to be notified of exactly when we go live. Alternatively, you can just watch our Twitter feeds (@someothercastle, @Improbable42, @etdragon), because we will certainly be Tweeting the heck out of it as well.
So, what can you do? Just show up. The chat was what kept us going through the original stream, and we’d love to have as many people as possible come back around. We know that’s pretty late for some of our (*cough*British*cough*) listeners, and so there will definitely be an archived version if you can’t make it. We’d love to have you if you’re a night owl, though!
As of the end of our stream, you guys had donated a total of $1500 to Extra Life. That’s a lot. A LOT. FIFTEEN HUNDRED DOLLARS, YOU GUYS! We are so thrilled it’s a little scary. As amazing as that is, we would love to shoot even higher and get that to $2k by the end of the year. So, if you haven’t donated yet, or would like to kick in an extra couple of bucks, please feel free to do so. Here is our page link!
Once again, thank you all so, so much for everything, and we hope to see you in the stream tomorrow!
We’re in the home stretch! You may have noticed that there is no podcast scheduled for this week, and we’re also taking a break from Building Character. Fear not, because both of these things will return…but for now, we’re focusing all of our energy on our impending internet nonsense. Here’s where things stand as of this, our last pre-show update: Continue reading
With only a couple of weeks left to go until Extra Life, we’re getting really excited, and we hope you are too! Schedules are being created and decisions are being made, and since we promised we’d give out some more details, here you go: Continue reading
