So you may have heard that we played a little megagame called Watch the Skies. A megagame, about international relations, conflict and high-level diplomacy, as well as mysterious and threatening aliens from outer space. We've played the game twice so far and enjoyed our time playing!
I’m sat in my chair waiting eagerly to hear the results, panicked that maybe my efforts were wasted, maybe I spent all that money for nothing… or worse that someone would figure out my scheming ways… If they had how would this affect us for the rest of the game? What tension would this cause me in the Asian Alliance? Would the Indian president take this personally? Oh god… And Germany! They’d be so mad that we made a fool of their big show. Finally, the votes for the world’s first World-O-Vision contest had been tallied and they were going to announce the winners…
“In third place we have…” Not Russia. “In second place we have…” Not Russia tied with the Aliens. OH GOD, maybe my efforts were in vain and my beloved other half and the foreign secretary was going to be PISSED that I heavily suggested that she should sing in front of everyone cause the rest of the team didn’t want too…
This was all the crazy going on in my head until the announcer finished reading the results of the massive music event -
“And the winners of the first World-O-Vision Music Contest, by a massive landslide… RUSSIA!”
We lasted posted back in July... That's not great! Especially when the podcast title was We're Back!
Let me take a moment to explain where we have been. Since we last uploaded to the website, we lived cast three more episodes. Unfortunately, due to an error, the website didn't upload the podcasts properly, due to a technical issue which has since been fixed.
In this episode, our brave heroes finally finish up the discussion of UK GAMES Expo with a discussion of the Watch the Skies event! When the world is confronted by strange aliens from beyond the stars, how will they react? Seemingly with panic and fear!
We discuss our experience as playing as the press, in the second Megagame that we've had the pleasure of playing!
