Weekly Wringer 105: Embarrassed by Gaming in Public?

In this Episode, the Commodore talks about being ashamed by your games. In public that is. Ever felt the gaze of onlookers as you bring out the PS Vita or 3DS? Or do you not care a lick about non-gamers and their opinions? All angles are discussed. And then it’s a question for next time about our pals at Nintendo. It’s the Weekly Wringer!

Echo Screen Live #38: Women in Video Games

Chat with us live every 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month at 9PM Eastern.

The way women are depicted in video games – we’ve come a long way since the damsel in distress… haven’t we?  With this topic all the rage in social media, the guys decide to take a crack with their opinions and questions.  With special guest PushingUpRoses to provide some XX chromosomal insight!

All that and your questions on this episode of Echo Screen Live!

16-Bit Gems #35: Back to the Future

Roo is back with yet another 8-Bit Gem… but not one you might expect. Back to the Future on the NES has a horrible reputation, as well as the company that released it – LJN. But is that criticism fair? Well, considering it’s the subject of this episode, you can guess as to what Roo thinks. Find out way more than you ever wanted to about this maligned game on today’s episode!

Big thanks to Shane from Rerez for the thumbnail! -

Echo Screen Live #37: Game of Thrones THROW(N)DOWN! (4/2/13)

Chat with us live every 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month at 9PM Eastern.

Winter is coming. And so is season 4 of Game of Thrones. The guys are hooked, and are here to discuss with you their thoughts on the series – the good, the bad, and the Other. We’ll share our favorite fan theories and discuss what we think is coming in the show, and how it might differ from the books. Plus taking your questions!

It’s a spoiler-iffic (through the 3rd season of TV / 1st half of Storm of Swords) episode of Echo Screen Live!

Wringers, The Chat Question, and a New Feature?

Greetings friends! I, the Commodore have a few items to bring to your attention that you may find useful or potentially even interesting. Lacking a better way to get you all this info, I thought I’d just put it in a post for all to see! Here goes.

First, I’m working on a way to better post mp3 versions of all of our shows so that those of you with long commutes or inexplicable appetites for the sound of our voices can listen to our shows in audio-only format. Fact of the matter is I was just blind posting MP3s before which was kind of a sloppy and unprofessional process – let alone a kind of unsecured one. Please don’t think I’ve forgotten those of you that have requested this, we’re investigating and hope to have something soon. For that matter, we think it’s about time we made a proper podcast and I think that idea dovetails nicely.

Second, I think I have solved the problem of finding our new home for the Echo Screen Live chat. I have secured services in the channel #Echo-Screen-Live on the Geekshed IRC network which I believe will service us well as our new host for ESL chat moving forward. If you want to register your nick on their servers ( so we’ll recognize you (and nobody will steal your nick) go for it! And by all means, feel free to use the chat while the show is not going on. I’m exploring the option of adding this chat to our site as a permanent fixture. I look forward to seeing all of you there during the Game of Thrones show!

Thirdly, I’ve heard from many of you that you (for some odd reason) enjoy some of the long ramblings of Wringers and ESL’s of the past. I really like our new formats, but I understand your feelings here and I’m going to do something for you guys. Presently, I’m working on a very simple show that I can do whenever the mood strikes me to reflect, contemplate or rant about something (games or otherwise). Basically this will be comprised of me, a camera, and a deluge of musings on a particular subject. No fancy pictures, no primo editing, just genuine, mostly off the cuff thoughts, and absolutely no apologies for time. :) My hope is that this will help to partially satisfy those of you that prefer a long format show. I live to serve.

That’s all for now. Thank you all for being a part of the Clan of the Gray Wolf.

Weekly Wringer 104: Gaming Genres on the Go!

In this Episode, the Commodore talks about gaming genres that are easier to pick up on the go. Digging a little deeper into this topic, a question appears about our willingness to play games in front of other people. Maybe you’re embarrassed and maybe you’re not. But either way you have an opinion and we want to hear it this week on the comments. It’s ok to be a gamer folks, it’s the Weekly Wringer!
