And in celebration of National Dice Day I have a great interview with Christopher Perkins

christ steve! 2 and a half hours!? i have to find the time to listen to this!
Welcome back Steve. Can't wait to hear it. :D
Yes! A new Gaming Steve! Thankyou!
Please let this be the first of many?
I love it when they're long.
Any episode is greatly appreciated.
thanks a bunch, and welcome back
Awesome Steve!! I can't wait to listen to this!!!
Whoa! This made my day. Your insight into everything is always much appreciated!
By the way, are the winners determined by the luck of the draw, or do you judge the motivations for why the game was picked?
I thought itunes was playing a trick on my when it starting downloading the new show. Glad your back steve!
Hanukkah arrives right on time!
A nice long show!
Merry Christmas Steve, Thanks for the show I can't wait to listen :)
What a great surprise! Thanks for making a show, Steve.
and i was just starting to feel a little cynical about life... :-)
i like this
Oh, how about that.
Glad to see you back on the ball, Steve. :D
What an excellent early Chrimbo pressie!
Thanks Steve, Happy Christmas to you and your family.
"A little while"? Your last episode was nine months ago, dude! The entirety of the classic film "Junior" could have occurred in the time since then.
Great, great interview. I can't wait for the online tabletop D&D.
First I thought the date was wrong (in Norway we use day/month), and I figured that was the thing here, but wow, a new episode, amazing!
I was so surprised at this that I actually woke my girlfriend up to tell her. She obviously had no idea what I was talking about, but I had to tell someone! :p
Nice to have you back. It's been way too long ;)
Steve, I loved the interview on D&D 4.0. I'm forwarding the show-link to all my tabletop gaming friends.
I crud. I stop checking Gaming Steve for 3 days, and then this happens.
Hope this will be the start of regular podcasts.
A great show as always. Still the best podcast around in my opinion.
I don't think Jeff was fired over Kane and Lynch, it was was negative yeah, but it was honest, and after listening to the Hotspot, they have pretty much convinced me that it was coincidental that he was fired after the review. Besides, look at most of the other reviews on other sites, they're really not that great either. 67/100 on metacritic, and mc users gave it a 1.9 out of 10!
Great episode Steve :D
Yesterday night, I went out and rented a copy of the devil wears prada and watched it with my girlfriend, grrrreat movie :) thanks for the recomendation.
Yes! Steve is back! Happy Holidays, thanks for the early Christmas present! Holy cow on the giveaway too.
The Witcher is not based only on a short story. It's based on a series of two short story collections and 5 novels by Andrzej Sapkowski. The first book ("The Last Wish") has recently been released in the UK and will soon be released in the US. You can read more at:
Hey Gaming Steve. I just found your blog by...some convoluted path or other. But I really enjoyed this episode and am about to start listening to number 65. I'm more interested in tabletop gaming, but you keep having these interviews with WotC staff and I can't resist! Anyway, just wanted to show some appreciation.
Hey, my Wii's fan started to fail too. Moved it to an open space before it blew.
