GAMER'S QUARTER FORUMS AREN'T DEAD

They just currently live here and nobody's posted on them since 2011.

Podcast #2 Half Life 2 - Now Available

It's been a month since our first podcast, so here goes number 2. In this episode, Matthew Williamson, Benjamin Rivers, Andrew Toups, J.R. Freeman, and M. O'Connor discuss the seminal PC title Half Life 2 and its unique qualities and shortcomings. The podcast can be downloaded here, and the cover here. Stay tuned after the podcast to learn how you can win a copy of Blade Dancer: Lineage of Light for the PSP!

Our staff is currently busy finishing up their articles for our next issue which is due in mid-September. Please remember to check back then, or just sign up for our mailing list in that little "mailing list" section to the left. We should mention that there are a few technical issues with this podcast. We thought about redoing the whole thing, but didn't feel that the issues were bad enough to try to artificially recreate the conversations that went on. O' Connor has done a great job of cleaning things up, but if you still want to complain or have any other, more positive feedback, please click Comments and let us know what you think.

Podcast #1 Noctis - Now Available

Welcome to the first TGQ Podcast, where The Gamer's Quarter staff discuss an interesting or significant game on months between magazine releases. In our first show, M. O?Connor, J. R. Freeman, Ancil Anthropy, and Brandon Richard discuss the freeware title Noctis, a space exploration simulator that's tremendously vast and surprisingly lonely. Download the podcast right here, and the cover here. When you're done listening you can download the "game" from its website, you might also want to check out our Omake photo gallery.

Our next podcast, due in mid-August, will tentatively cover Half-Life 2. Check back then or sign up for our mailing list in that little box to the left of here. We're moving into new territory here, and any feedback is appreciated so please click on the "Comments" field below and lets us know what you think.
