You should listen to "A Fistful of Pixels"

Hey, hold on a second. I know what you're going to say:

"But Ben, this is shameless self-promotion and I hate that and I also hate fun."

Woah, chill out bro, just wait a second. You haven't even let me make my pitch yet.

A Fistful of Pixels is a little project me and a couple of friends have wanted to start for a while now, and it's finally catching steam. AFOP is a video game podcast, but not in the traditional sense. In our podcast, we take random phrases (sometimes generated by robots, sometimes people) and turn them into awesome video games.

This week we had our first 100% user-submitted episode, with submitees including podcast personality Justin McElroy. Give it a chance, I swear it's super funny. I have been indisposed as of late and haven't been on a couple of episodes, but the guys they've gotten to fill in for me are as funny, if not way less funny (nobody is funnier than me).

You can find it at http://afistfulofpixels.podomatic.com/! Also if you do like it maybe you want to subscribe to it on iTunes and give it a super-honest 5-star review?

Thank you v much.

I'll check it out because I can't comprehend what it actually is by your description.

For you, Ben, I shall listen.

Edit: Got 15 minutes into it and stopped. It's not terrible, just not really my thing. Sounds like you guys have fun, though.

I just jumped into the latest episode and what the hell is going on?

Cyber-Garfield is a pretty funny concept though.

EDIT-- aaaaaaaa this is alright. It has an absolutely awful name though, you should call it "crap factory" or "super expert game dev studio" or "next big thing" or something funny that doesn't sound like a shitty webcomic.

Or you could make the theme of the show be that you're millionaire publishers and people have to pitch their games to you- but they can only pitch the titles. And you decide whether each one is gonna be a huge success or a nightmare.
