Podcast: Game On!

With the Repeater out on assignment (or as the French say, d’affectation, which sounds pretty gross if you don’t say it right), we bring in a guest host and talk about a topic that we’ve avoided for Ben’s sake: Video Games! We examine where we came from in our gamer’s walk, and where this beloved pastime is taking us.

    My big game was “Top Secret,” the espionage role-playing game. My online handle, “Daggor,” is a derivation of my Top Secret character’s name: Stephen Dagger. When the mid-90’s rolled around, I felt the need to put an action figure spin on it for brevity’s sake. I like how Towerbot says it. Sounds French.
