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:
- Subscription numbers
- The recurring cycles of MMOG blogging
- Lack of giant robot MMOGs
- 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!
