CoCoTALK! After Dark! Episode 01

CoCoTALK! After Dark! Episode 01 - 10-21-2017


On episode 30 of CoCoTALK! we talked about some of the community drama, and it was good to talk about it, but we didn't get to have too many other just "normal" conversations.

Later in the evening, a few of the CoCoTALK!ers got together for an off-line conversation that went in many directions.

Yes, we talked a little more about the drama, but we also talked about a few other things, and, just talked.  This is unscripted, unplanned, and slightly, uncensored.


On the call:

David Ladd, Jay Searle, Nick Marentes, Jim Brain from Retro Innovations, Rick Adams, Wayne Campbell, and hosted by ogStevieStrow


We talked a bit about Pop*Star Pilot with it's author, Rick Adams gave us some mental notes on the next game he's thinking about designing.

Jim Brain gave some input on to when people want to "armchair quarterback" somebody else's project, and was asking to be called out, if he ever crossed any lines in the community.

Jay Searle had some assembly language questions, which, we were lucky to have a handful of experts around to handle, and many other random topics were discussed.

We hope you like the episode, and let us know if you'd like to see and hear more episodes like this.
