Finally got a chance to load this one up for my morning drive. I love the "round table" format which is a great change of pace from the Escapist. In addition to the three "hosts", it'd be great for you guys to pick up a 4th from the forum from time to time -- just to further enhance the community feel.

I was surprised to hear that you northerners could procure NCAA. Do Canadians even watch college ball?

I agree, we have a few technical issues we still need to sort out on that front though. Two of us in the same room and one on Skype works without too much hassle. TWO remote on Skype who need to be on separate audio channels is possible, but requires yet another computer and more cables. I'm hoping we'll find a good solution soon that wouldn't require us to lose audio quality.

It's only been the last two years that they've shipped the game to Canada, I think they had legal troubles in the past since no Canadian teams were included in the game. I can't say it's incredibly popular in Canada though, compared to the NFL.

Elysium lives in little Canada by the way, also known as Minnesota.

To whoever found Dice Wars (Certis?), thank you from saving me from an uneventful day at the office. I finally got around to trying it out, and I think I ended up wasting a vast majority of my day grimacing as the AI steamrolled my carefuly constructed emipre.

Folks walking by my cube probably thought I was working by the expression on my face. Good thing my monitor faces away from the hallway.

My pleasure Lupus, it's a good one. I'm not usually a big fan of web games.

I'd love to be a "guest host" on the conference call if that ever gets up and running successfully.

Just, in case, ya know.. you wanted to know who would be willing to do that.

Like me.

I'm not anxious.

Guest hosts "service" the hosts, you know that right? Full disclosure and all that.

Don't forget about Escape Radio also. :)[/quote]
