Kiasacast Episode 1

In what we believe is an unprecedented move, we at Killed in a Smiling Accident thought it might be interesting to try and send our voices through the internet in what we’re calling a “podcast”, combining the everyday words of “cast” from “broadcast” with “pod” from “podophyllin”, a brown bitter gum extracted from the rootstalk of the May apple (Podophyllum peltatum), so, encoded using fruit extract, it’s episode one of the Kiasacast!

In this episode, we take a look back at the events of 2008, or “flip back through the blog and talk about a few posts”. It’s our first time, as it were, so it’s a little shaky, but we get into the swing of things.

Subjects covered include:

  • Hellgate
  • Subscription numbers
  • The recurring cycles of MMOG blogging
  • Lack of giant robot MMOGs
  • Bonekickers!
  • The reason Age of Conan and Warhammer haven’t done too well
  • Guitar Heroism

Intro music: Galaforce for the BBC B microcomputer
Outro music: Galaforce remix by Heartcore

We’re not sure if it’ll become a regular thing, if nothing else watch (or indeed listen) out for a review of 2009 in a year or so!
