Inter-Dimensional Lake Monsters Among Us?!

Well, if that googly-eyed, odd, pipe of a fish isn’t enough to convince you that monsters exist in the deep, maybe my second interview with David George Gordon will! David is an expert in all things cryptid and nature. He’s written several field guides on more traditional flora and fauna, but is especially renowned for his book, The Sasquatch Seekers Field Manual.

In our interview for this episode, we left the mystery of Bigfoot behind in favor of talking about something a little stranger. Cadborosaurus is a mythical sea/lake monster rumored to live off the coast of British Columbia. David has gone on several expeditions looking for the creature, and we cover them all, including the research for his upcoming book on the subject. It’s definitely one of the stranger topics I’ve covered, but as always, David is a fantastic guest and a very entertaining speaker.

As always, this episode is up for free on most streaming platforms (Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, and more). You can follow those links or just listen below! Remember, the best way to support the podcast is to share it around if you like it, comment on this blog, tweet at me (@RealMacAshton), or just holler from the rooftops. We really appreciate it :).

Yetis, WWII, and Bigfoot – My Interview With Peter Byrne

A few weeks back, I had the opportunity to talk with a man who has lived a life truly worthy of legend. Peter Byrne served in the British Royal Airforce where he ran rescue missions in the Cocos Islands and afterward went to work for the British Tea Company in Darjeeling. It was there that he met Tanzig Norgay, part of the duo to first summit Everest, and through his friendship learned of the yeti legend. Peter spent years hunting the yeti on both personal and financed expeditions before he was contracted to come to the U.S. and hunt for Bigfoot.

The story is unbelievable, but it’s all true. You can check out my full interview with Peter on my monthly podcast, Cryptids Decrypted. It’s free and available anywhere you could possibly want to stream it! For more information on Peter, you can check out his website. Beware, it does play some pretty sweet jungle noises when you open it.

Also, a last word. The intro to this episode talks about the Patreon which is now dead, so go ahead and ignore that! All future episodes will be free and the best way to support us is to share them around if you enjoy listening.

PAX West 2017

Hello readers (all 2 of you), for those of you who have been worried sick at the lack of posting (or had blissfully forgotten you subscribed), I can assure you, there’s a good reason. This past weekend I had the privilege of attending PAX West as a media correspondent for Gizorama, which meant interviewing as many devs as possible about upcoming titles. I’ve included some links below to all of the works I published over the last week, and rest assured, more Death Co and Chadpocalypse is on the way soon. There might even be a new story about an amateur Cajun necromancer, we’ll see… Overall, huge thanks to Gizorama for getting me the pass in the first place, it was an awesome experience.

Interview With Total Warhammer’s Lead Designer of New Content

I have to say, this was one of my favorite interviews and it turned out really well. Richard Aldridge was very nice and told us quite a bit about his love for Warhammer’s Lizard Men.

Previewing Rend – A Survival Game From Frostkeep

When I booked an appointment with some ex-WoW developers, I had no idea what to expect. When it was in a suite on the 25th floor of a hotel, I was doubly confused. What I saw looks to be an amazing start on a game that might revitalize the over-saturated action-crafting-survival genre. Another group of great people that I hope to follow up with soon.

Where the Water Tastes Like Wine Preview

As a story teller, playing a game about story telling was an intriguing concept. Where the Water Tastes Like Wine blew my expectations out of the water for what good video game writing is. The creators have done an amazing job conveying the life of a drifter and just how important each small event in life can be. I’ve also got a follow-up interview with the creators later this week.

Daily Updates

I also did a series of daily updates, which can be found below. These were my top games each day of the show, and a little blurb about why I liked them so much.
