Merry Christmas from the Johnsons

The winners of the gift giveaway have been sent their prizes (mostly)! The overall winner was Tzar, who won 7 entire games. Now maybe if you were more like Tzar, you’d have won 7 games, hmm?

Anyways, the following people also entered (and won) but I have no way to contact them. If you’re one of these people, you should email me on the double!
Geosol – 1 game
Ashketchup173 – 1 game
Dragaroth – 1 game
Zerodeck – 1 game

So, thanks everyone for entering, and have a holly, jolly Winterval.

PS: One other thing – make sure you answer the most recent poll – a few people expressed dissatisfaction with me that we were streaming aRTS games because they’re pretty confusing to watch if you’re not into the genre. But please don’t take away people’s ability to stream them unless you really, actually genuinely can’t watch them. Even if it’s just a bit of filler I’d rather have a stream than no stream, personally.

PPS: You should read my awesome interview on Gatheryourparty.

Seanie appointed Senior Vice President and Emperor of Quality Control

He will share with you his many secrets of Xsplit and streaming in general. He is a mostly benevolent emperor so please do not get mad at him.

If you have not done so already, I’d strongly recommend you log into the admin area and view the tutorial (you were sent your login details via email, but you can request a password reset if you do not have them). It should tell you how to get the best audio and video quality out of Xsplit and FFsplit. Thank you.

Love, Cats

Episode 15 – True Doom Murderheads

Download

Happyman, Catsman, Boigahs, Hoffy, Juju, Ramal, Mooglepies and Reinbach go over the torrential flood of embarrassment that was the 2012 Spike VGAs, as well bad Facebook promos, Notch’s money grubbing ways, Kojima’s merit as a writer, and two hilarious new Kickstarters. Also, another gay Smash Brothers fanfic – but from an entirely new perspective.

This episode was edited, mastered and produced by Happyman. Who did a great jorb.
