28 Plays Later - Episode 34 – The One With MC Frontalot

20979720036_52e0ab9703

The world’s 579th greatest rapper, MC Frontalot, joins the podcast via audio from his post-PAX Aus stage show with Kris. They talk about childhood gaming memories, copy protection, and approximations of nudity in pixels. Meanwhile back on the homefront, Paul and Kris talk about listener emails, consoles, and a Star Wars Battlefront map featuring the corpses of Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru and their grow operation.

Thanks for bearing with us! Kris is traveling and it’s been hard to find time to edit, but here’s a darling Episode 34. And thanks to MC Frontalot for joining us!

Hi Melbourne — I will be at PAX Australia in your hemisphere 30 October to 1 November! I’ll have a table in Bandland! Where is that on the show floor? I don’t know exactly. It’s my first time doing PAX there!

I’ll have a selection of Broodhollow books 1 and 2, as well as the most recent Chainsawsuit collection, and a multitude of Pinny Arcade pins from America’s distant shore. You’ll also be able to pick up the 28 Plays Later Yharnam poster, and get it signed by myself and Paul Verhoeven!

kris i don’t care about that. what about panels

You know, I worked really hard on all my books and comics — and I’m a father now, so —

Fine!
