Obsessive Comics Disorder #48: "We've Got Tone....And It's Gone"

Not our best effort this week, as my internet couldn't decide if it wanted to work or not, which meant that we were recording without show notes, without a live chatroom (really trying for one next week), and even without a way to check to see that we weren't making stuff up.  Enjoy!

Come watch us (attempt to) record live!  Sundays at 7pm EDT at http://ocdcast.com/live !

Obsessive Comics Disorder #45: "If You Are Going To Build A Robot, Why Not Do It With Some Style!"

A bunch of great stuff for you guys this week - we test out some new segments, and even class up the joint with some background music as well!  (I mention in the podcast that the music is by Andrew Allen, but I forgot to mention that everything you hear is off the album "Free Play", available on iTunes, etc.)

Relative Dimensions #35: "We're Bringing It Back Now, Geek Talk Style"

That's right - we thought the show we getting kind of stale just talking about games, so we took our current format and threw it out the window!  If you've been listening since the beginning I intended Relative Dimensions to be a general "Geek Talk Radio" type show, and that's the style that we are going back to.  We are currently coming up with new ideas for the show, so if you've got an idea then send it to us!

Relative Dimensions #33: "Achievement Unlocked - Two Shows In A Row!"

That's right, we are on a roll towards having a regular show each week.  Don't be too impressed though, as its a short show - not that much news worth talking about this week, plus Chris' computer did not want to capture any video so the second half of the show that was supposed to be dedicated to showing off Star Trek Online was thrown out.  We'll get the kinks worked out though.

Relative Dimensions #32: "Remembering Our Troops....And How To Podcast"

Like trying to restart any good habit, Philip and I were struggling to start podcasting again - but we recorded one this week! Being Memorial Day, we remember our troops, and then move right in to talk about the awesome things that we've done over the past month or so. I've tried a couple of new MMO's, restarted playing others, while Philip's been enjoying him some Romulans in Star Trek Online. Oh, and Xbox One?
