Episode Fifty Four – Is There A Market For Soylent Bubba?

Is There A Market For Soylent Bubba?

In this episode, we review The Dresden Files RPG Volume 3: The Paranet Papers, discover that there are gaming ideas that we’re not prepared to play, run, or share a room with, and come up with a possible new segment for the Big Red Couch; Dumb-Ass Gaming Ideas.

We start the show, after some introductory yammering, with a review of The Dresden Files RPG Volume 3: The Paranet Papers, by Evil Hat Productions, who were kind enough to send us an electronic preview copy. The review concludes at about the 21 minute mark with a condensed version of our thoughts, and then goes into what we laughably call the content of our show, which contains such ideas as;

  • An unpleasant corporation seeks trading opportunities between Alternate Earths, and will attempt to profit from anything.
  • What sort of monstrous things are you prepared to do in order to bring down an evil mega-corp?
  • The advantage of working for a cartoonishly evil multi-universal corporate entity is that idiotic & cartoonish methods of resistance are really quite effective.

Ben referenced the movie Braindead, directed by Peter Jackson, which was released as Dead Alive in North America. I think the one he meant, also directed by (and starring) Peter Jackson (twice) is Bad Taste. ~ T. Jones

A short description of F.A.T.A.L., from the “Worst RPGs Ever” section of the RPG.net wiki.
A very long RPG.net review of F.A.T.A.L. – Contains coarse language, and is not safe for work. Or some homes.
Much like the game.
