If you aren't filled with loathing for the hole of a town you call your own, Gentle Listener, then listen in as hosts Alexandre Ferreira, Wesley Johnson, Randall Smith, Matt Darrow, and Marie Barnes reveal the wonders of Algarve to you, such that never again will you lie in your own bed in contentment. Just pack up and go tour the joint already, why don't you?
In this episode:
An opening note from the Internet's own Matt. M. Alexandre Ferreira, Tourism Policeman, gamer, podcaster, major-league human billboard for Portugal. His Brazilian connection, punctuated by a thunderous exclamation point. Driving wheels considered, both as buying and building options. Matt gets his SF Tournament stick modded. Marie is actually a girl, WoW fools; stop wasting time in the chat channel and start raiding. If you're Horde, that is; Alliance players need not apply. The dangers of glomping. Dragonslayer. A discussion of the merits of the XBLA Magic: The Gathering game. Wes goes to see his friend Dan Smith AKA "The Listener" play. Advice on how to play in Marie's D&D campaign, straight from the DM herself. A discussion had re: games that take far too long to play, and piles of gaming shame. The shameful lack of Rock Band in Portugal, and the lack of anything to be done about it. The unfair burden of translation placed on Alex by GTA and a wife who does not speak English.
