Remote Presence After Hours is our version of Bonus Content.  It is recorded after our main podcast, has no set topics or even outline to follow, and is largely unedited.  Also, by the time we get around to recording this, we've had a few drinks and are probably drinking more during the episode, so things aren't perfect.

That said, it will include freeform wandering discussion about topics relating to, or mostly relating to Infinity.  Sometimes you'll get to hear us make fun of ourselves.  Finally, it won't be a guaranteed thing but we'll try to offer one per month.

This After Hours episode is just under 40 minutes long, and in it Joel asks Greg and Sean about some of their deepest, darkest Infinity desires.  It's hot, steamy, explicit, and involves heavy powered armor...

Episode 4, and we're on a roll!

Today we start off talking a little about the Tohaa, and about the fluff surrounding this mysterious race of "friends" to the Human Sphere.  We talk at great length about the new releases, but most of that conversation revolves around the Kerail Preceptors and Symbiobeasts and Achilles 2.0(ACHILLES HARDER!)

We then move into talking about the various types of Remotes.  What they are, how they're classified, strengths and weaknesses of each, and finally give some hints on how to use some of both the more and least popular types.  Sean goes out on a limb and creates a Combined Army list that focuses on Remotes, and can be downloaded in PDF form on the Remote Presence website.

Episode 3!  This could technically be episode 4 but we're all really good at math.

Today we discuss two topics in pretty great detail: Playstyles and List Building.  We mostly just talk about our own personal playstyles and listbuilding habits, but try to offer as much useful advice as we possibly can.

Sean got started drinking well before we even began recording, so he apologizes for any annoyances caused(not really, but it sounds pretty nice doesn't it?)

Timestamps:

  • 00:00:00 - Sean screws something up

  • 00:06:16 - Playstyles
