Some of you may be aware that we’re thinking of ways to re-vitalise the podcast. We haven’t been going regularly for a while and we’re trying to get a schedule going to bring it back to about monthly. Catsman has noted that the news section is often a drag (it’s longer and much worse while recording and I axed about half of it during last episode’s edit).
In the interest of reducing the news section to something more fun and manageable while still trying to have some set topics to talk about, we’re going to bring back the Video Game Book Club. We’ll decide a game to play each month and will talk about it on the next podcast. I’m aiming to stream these games (and I encourage others to do so) and I’ll likely upload my playthroughs to our youtube channel so people who can’t/don’t want to play can at least experience the games we talk about in some format.
We’ll be letting you know which games we will be playing in advance so that you can play them too and see if your views align with ours. Feel free to comment with your thoughts on the game announcement posts or in the comments sections of the podcasts we discuss then in.
“Yo Noid! 2: Enter the Void” will be our first book club game of the new season. Here’s an almost download link: https://dustinbragg.itch.io/yo-noid-was-ahead-of-its-time
Yo Noid! has a rich history with the GLA. Woolyshambler will defend it to the death and it, as well as The Noid himself, has been discussed multiple times on previous episodes of GDV. It’s an advertising game that released in Japan as “Masked Ninja Hanamaru” but was re-purposed to try to get people to buy more Domino’s Pizza.
I also realise that we haven’t done comments in a while and I keep meaning to go back through the last five or six episodes to grab them.
We’ll maybe be bringing back some other old sections and things may get a bit experimental in terms of format. Please look forward to that. As I often say: “Exspecs the unexspecsted!”
I’ve also decided that multi-track recording session editing is not a sustainable lifestyle choice and I will have to stop.

This podcast was edited by: Specs
Just a note on the editing: I got some good feedback about the multi-track editing that I did last time. I streamlined the process and did the same for this podcast, but it still takes WAY too long to do it this way and I think that I will probably stop because it’s such a massive work of editing.
People who talked during this podcast: Catsman, Mooglepies, OkayHero, RSN_Bran, ShinyMissingno, Specs and Woolyshambler (AKA Happyman)
We discuss the games of last year as well as our hopes (and eventual crushed dreams) of the future; Specs trials his new gameshow format and Woolyshambler (AKA Happyman) walks out of his own window; Specs dreams about Catsman and then we discuss magical pornography. It all ends with post-burger music.

Please give me some feedback on the editing in this podcast. I edited it differently from how we normally do it in order to artificially make it so that nobody talks over each other (unless for artistic purposes). If enough people tell me that this is worthwhile then I may consider continuing to do it, but it was a pain in the arse to do.
Next recording is tentatively 15:00 GMT on 17/02/2019.
Specs dabbles in CBT. Catsman recalls all the athletes with bird names. Animitch consumes metal. Shiny explains the childbirth centrifuge. Mash goes to bed. Old man Moogle dabs, like he knows what that means. Plus, what would make Tony Hawk do a 900 in his grave?

Long-running stability problems should finally be fixed. We have moved from MariaDB back to MySQL (please don’t sue me, Oracle), from CentOS to Ubuntu, and from Apache to nginx. Unfortunately the change to nginx means I can no longer write permalinks using .htaccess files, so the permalinks (e.g. ‘lunchtime.org.uk/podcast’) are broken right now. I will fix that when I can work out how to fix that.
If you had a login for the GLA FTP server or various other things, that won’t work anymore. If you do need a login I can set you up with an SCP login instead (same deal, different protocol).
