Like a book club, but with video games.

E3 coverage this year

As you all know, E3 has been pretty dull for the last few years. I have no explicit plans to do rebroadcasting myself, but if you’d like to, E3 (and twitch) have very kindly said that it’s perfectly OK to re-stream E3 broadcasts on Twitch.

Also: a reminder that our new (actually good) mumble server can be found at: Address:, Port: 50904, Password: 3ymeva9u

I have attached a schedule below.


I may ask to devote a small amount on our presumed forthcoming live podcast in Leeds, The City of a Trillion Tears, to talk about the highlights and lowlights, but will probably not do it conference-by-conference as we have in previous years (unless it turns out to be a really meaty E3).

Love, Cats

New details for 2016 meetup sent out

Including my address and stuff. Please check your email and read it!

The newest podcast is finally in editing but it’s a beast. Sorry for the break in schedule but my I like to think of myself as a real adult with responsibilities to skirt.

Love, Cats

Apology and new mumble server

First off, sorry for my unexpected disappearance from the last podcast. To make up for it I’ve ordered a new, proper mumble server.

Hostname / Address:
Port: 50904
Password: 3ymeva9u

This will hopefully save us squatting on GYP’s server for podcasts.

Love, Cats

Podcast this Sunday evening UPDATE; Leeds meetup news

EDIT: We’re looking to start recording at around 20:00. Sorry.
We’re looking to start recording at 17:30 UK time. The UK is now on british summertime, so make sure you’ve got the right time if you want to be on. We’ll probably be holding it in the GYP mumble, unless I can be bothered to work out getting a proper mumble server. Please message me or Happyman if you’re unsure of the details.

Other news: the inagural bongfest of 2016 has been confirmed for the weekend of June 17th-19th, to take place in Leeds, the City of a Thousand Tears. I’ve sent out some please responds. Please check your email address! I’ve sent them to the email address that I have on record but tell me if that’s wrong. I will be sending out emails with more details soon.

Love, Cats

Podcast records on 20th of Feb at 4PM GMT in GYP mumble

We are in a between-mumbles situation right now (basically people said mine was crap, so we switched to another one, and it turns out that one is crap as well) so I’m going to see how it goes in the GYP one. The GYP one is technically private. If you don’t know the details, you can ask me or Happyman (email me at!). I will also hover around the twitch channel before\during 4PM to make sure anyone who asks can get in.

See you then!

Love, Cats

PS: you can use this nifty website to see what 4PM GMT is in your local time.
