You've seen the nominations, now hear us discuss the winners of our first ever End of the Year Gaming Awards Show. This whole project was a partnership between us and the fine folks at Geek News Network and East Valley Gaming, which is why it saddens us that due to technical difficulties we were unable to carry on a stable connection via Skype. As such the podcast will consist of myself, Steven, and Brad for an entire two hours! (Note: Two hours is a hell of a podcast to edit, so I hope you all like it. This is seriously my favorite one we have ever done.)

Episode 29 brings us a tale of the making of a Constantly Calibrating episode, sort of. We cover some of the scripting of how an episode comes to be. More importantly we cover our thoughts on Mass Effect: Omega at the end. Sorry for the short introductory paragraph here, but been dealing with a series of mini emergencies throughout the last week.

We bring unto you our episode, number 28 in the lore of the land of those who calibrate constantly. Of this episode we speak great truths in regard to the horrors of traveling during the giving of thanks, but that is not all. For we regale you with many a tale of opinions of Assassin's Creed, the Third. Does gentle Ubisoft's latest opus score well with Steven and mine eyes; find out at the end of our thrilling podcasting experience!

Back and better than ever! Probably, wait...we were gone? Well I guess not really. It's only been 17 days, but who's counting. This week we discuss Steven's whirlwind travel extravaganza of extravagance; plus there's a new Doctor Who Christmas trailer, and it is awesome!

Holy hell! Disney owns Lucasfilm and most importantly Star Wars! This was the huge/surprising announcement from this past week; something that I'm still having trouble fully coming to terms with. This week's podcast is completely devoted to discussing Star Wars, Disney, and everything related to both. Huge thanks to our special guest, our buddy Brad for joining us to look at what the future may hold for Star Wars.

Episode 25 is here at last! Why am I so excited for this, you ask? Well, we decided that starting with our 25th episode we would be adding in music at the beginning of our podcasts. Until such time as we decide on an official podcast theme song we will be alternating through assorted music fitting of the individual discussions, or such.

On today's podcast: some Assassin's Creed discussions and fogcast related rambleations!

This week's theme song is "Brothers of the Creed" by Miracle of Sound. More information about Miracle of Sound can be found by visiting our site and click on this podcast's link.

Another week, another podcast; for once with Josh being far more sleep-deprived than Steven! It's a Christmas October; which makes sense since in Arizona people start putting up holiday decorations at the same time as Halloween decorations. I blame Sun-exposure.

For today's podcast we go into quite a few discussions of what it takes to build a home; some Mass Effect: Omega announcement stuff; all culminating in random tirades about Disney. All-in-all a pretty standard podcast out here at ConCal.

The time of reckoning hath come to pass! Fogcast #2 is here and you will enjoy it, or else! XCOM: Enemy UnknownMass Effect* (big shocker), and assorted scientific preamble appear and contour to the shape of our most recent show.

*The announcement about the newest Mass Effect DLC titled “Omega” was announced shortly after we recorded this week’s podcast. We’ll have more information and a discussion of that on next week’s episode.

Now that that outburst is out of the way...mostly.

Today we bring you a podcast that I had been waiting to record for quite some time, but wasn't sure if we would be able to work it out. On the show we have Anthony Burch (Lead Writer of Borderlands 2) and Ashly Burch (Tiny Tina in Borderlands 2) and it was awesome! The Burch's, as we tend to call them around our house, are old friend's of ours and to catch up and suck up to them was oh so fun.

With that, put your Borderlands 2 down*, sit down, and have a listen.

*Note: You really don't need to put Borderlands 2 down; your obsession is perfectly healthy and understandable. Just throw the podcast on while you're playing. You'll find it adds to the ambiance in ways you would never expect.
