#DoctorWho Weekend Starting September 12th 2014 – With @GadaboutGamer, @Yogizilla, and @Faryna!

Doctor Who Legacy Title Banner - DWL Code Giveaways!

Greetings and salutations, fellow Whovians, geeks, and creatives!

We have tons of updates, musings, and excitement to share with you so let’s jump right to it.  In case you missed our announcements on #TWTT EP3.5, the video has materialized below, for your enjoyment.  Stan Faryna also put together another lovely recap of what our community is calling the “Best Ever Doctor Who Podcast”.

Doctor Who Weekend – Timey Wimey Tea Time! #GeeksUnite

At 5pm Eastern / 10pm GMT today, September 12th, we’ll be doing a special Doctor Who Legacy Q&A with developers, Tiny Rebel Games, in collaboration with the fine folks of 42 Level 1.  Come hang out with me, Ali, and the AllGames community.  Since the Q&A will focus on this wonderful little mobile game, please keep questions related to the game itself and not the series.  Can you contain your Doctor Who love until Saturday morning? The developers have seen ahead so let’s not tempt them to spoil what’s to come (they really can’t, anyway).

Join The LIVE Chathttp://www.allgames.com/live

Come get some awesome!

We’ll be following up with the premiere of the Timey-Wimey Tea Time experience on AllGames on Saturday, September 13th, at 9am Eastern / 4pm GMT.  Stan and I will be traveling afterwards but we hope to follow up on Sunday with some Doctor Who marathons and, perhaps, inconceivable community events. I’m thinking group viewings and giveaways – if we see the love going on here in the comments.

Speaking of giveaways, there will be plenty during the Doctor Who Legacy special event.  In fact, everyone will get in-game items for Doctor Who Legacy just for showing up!

 

The GANG Doubled On YouTube

We have to mention this now: thanks to your fantastic support, our GeekyAntics YouTube channel subscribers have doubled in just a week. That’s how you grow a community.

The #TWTT community is growing geometrically and your enthusiastic support is overwhelming – in a good way!

Keep the voicemail messages, comments, faves, and shares coming! Even if we don’t always mention it, we are taking notice. It fills our hearts with joy to see so much love and beauty in the Doctor Who fan community!

HorsePLAY! Peterborough Is Great And So Is Hearthstone, Right Matto?

The Pig, The National Mascot For Canada

HorsePLAY! LIVE
Episodes 17  – Let’s Move To Canada..  For Hearthstone!

*** Featuring Matt Bradford of VGO & Zombie Cast ***

In this episode, HorsePLAY! LIVE becomes The Derailment Extravaganza (or is it Bonanza) once again.  Matt Bradford from Zombie Cast and VGO (Video Game Outsiders) returns to HorsePLAY! to help us stay raw, silly, and off-topic.  Some may know him as @MattoMcFly or “Moto”.  He’s also known as one of the writers for the Guinness World Records: Gamer’s Edition, AllGames, and GamesRadar, amongst other things.  We know him as one of our favorite Canadian geeks! Guinness World Records 2014 - Gamer's Edition - With Matt Bradford!

Matt confessed that any time after 11pm Eastern on a week day, he is essentially brain dead.  As a result, we get the sillier, more random Matt’O.  Somehow, he manages to give spoilers for our own show.  There are the usual wild tangents and shenanigans, but we mainly talk about Hearthstone, The Walking Dead, and freemium games.

We don’t do nearly as much League of Legends talk these days.  Matt groans at the mere thought.  It turns out that he may actually enjoy the game but the toxic community as seen on Reddit and other social media scares him away.  There are plenty of mainstay games we would like to play with our friends and fans – LoL is certainly one of them so give it a try…   Stan Faryna did! #YOHTAI

Show Highlights:

  • Golf is just something for bored richies to show off how much money and land they have.
  • WWF does not make us think about endangered animals.
  • “There’s a lot of cool cats on the AllGames network.”
  • HorsePLAY! LIVE is the perfect show to be brain-dead on!
  • Matt Bradford plays the hand harmonica.
  • Yogi is a very loud Puerto Rican, NOT a Mexican.
  • Sword Art Online is like dot.hack and Photon..  And it’s coming back for Season 2!
  • Apparently, everyone is too young to remember Photon.
  • We all love The Guild.. And Felicia Day.. Wil Wheaton, too.
  • Chris Hardwick is a narcissistic douchebag.
  • “WTF is in the basement??”
  • Twitter is getting rid of #hashtags..  Brilliantly stupid.
  • Third-party Twitter apps are WAY better than the official one.
  • Twitter is going to kill their existing user base.
  • “90% of the population mis-uses hashtags.”
  • Hearthstone iOS app is available only in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand..  Sorta.
  • You can now rejoin Hearthstone matches if disconnected.
  • Fashionably late The Walking Dead S4 finale reactions.
  • When is free-to-play really pay-to-win?
  • Hearthstone is NOT a pay-to-win game..  We explain why.
  • Did we mention we are now part of the AllGames family now??
  • Tons of other geeky antics and train wrecks, as per usual.

Canadian Bacon Vs. REAL Bacon..  An Uncooked Comparison

Matt Bradford has also put the Canadian bacon debate to bed.  This is his official statement, and I am paraphrasing:

Is that even ours?  I don’t think so..  It’s an abomination.  Canadian bacon is ham, NOT bacon.

“Moto”, you are a man above all men.   We love having you on the show and hope to have you join our geeky antics more.  Now, we need more G33k Grrlz and a little less Mancrushes..  It’s starting to be a sausage fest over on HorsePLAY! LIVE..  Where’s the bacon??

In case you missed it, HorsePLAY! is on the AllGames Network Thursdays at 5pm EDT.   HorsePLAY! LIVE (HD) is on Twitch at 11pm EDT.  Come join us on the IRC and Twitch chats!
