 Once I had a dream of a show that highlighted all that was good and honest about games ... that was shattered by Random Encounter and replaced with pidgeons ... so now, like some half crazed addict, I come back daily hoping and wishing for a return. I have even started singing Toto's Africa

Everyday I venture to this page to pay my respects and hope, beyond all else, that Random Encounter will stand, vilified, once again.

Whilst no continuation of our fine series has yet emerged, I still believe.

I still believe that if we all can come together, uniting our hopes and our prayers, that we will be rewarded on the day of the glorious return.

Don't you know I still believe, Danny. That you will be here, and give me a sign. Hit me, baby. One more time.

@dannyodwyer Good luck in SanFran Danny - I hope you get back to the RE shows once you're settled in.  Have you tried the Deponia trilogy from Daedelus yet?  It's worth it just to listen to some of the intro/link songs.  Badly translated prose sung in harmony - brilliant!

Danny, you really should look at playing Brutal Sports Football on this show, was a hilarious game back in the day. It used to be on Amiga 1200 but I am sure you can find a Rom for it to play on PC

I dont know why people that play these games dont just buy ARMA 2 and make your own missions at least. You could even make your own transport simulator if you truly wanted to.

Welcome to SF bud.  Just remember...the homeless you will see wandering around EVERYWHERE are protected...like the chickens in Kauai.  Don't feed them or startle them.

So tractors are an American term. We call the whole truck/trailer a tractor trailer. Just the truck we call a semi truck. No lorries in America.

@rogerpenna Pretty much all of them with American accents. Tom McShea, Chris Watters, Carolyn, Peter Brown, KVO, etc. etc. There is an office in Australia as well and one in Asia (not sure exactly where) and there may be more but I'm not sure. San Francisco is also the home of the awesome guys at Giant Bomb (same office complex). I can't wait for some sweet sweet O'Dwyer/Gerstmann/Caravella Quick Looks and/or Random Encounters.
