Remote Presence, an Infinity Podcast.  Episode 6!

In todays episode we talk about the news surrounding ITS 2016 including the Prize Pack and what we know(or think we know) about the 2016 missions.  Disclaimer: we don't really know anything about that!  We also discuss the new model releases shown in February.

Then we dive into a discussion fueled by our attendance at WaaaghPaca 2016.  Instead of talking about the events themselves(which we did a lot of in the released After Hours episodes) we instead talk about a lot of the things that we noticed players doing during their games.  Since the vast majority of the players were still fairly new to the game, we offer our insight on why some of these things appear as either good or bad to us, and what we would offer to improve upon those that we see as bad.

We also talk about the upcoming Twinfinity Open 2016 ITS Tournament!

Finally, we discuss a pair of listener emails.

THIS IS SUPER EXPLICIT!!!  

Part 2 of our ongoing "Live @ WaaaghPaca 2016" recordings!

Here we invite Jon and Danno to the room for a drink and a discussion on "Soft Scores" in Infinity(Hobby, Paint, and Sportsmanship).  Jon and Danno were judging paint all weekend long for all of the various events, so we thought these would be the right guys to talk to and it helps that they're playing Infinity too!

As always, this is After Hours and was recorded on very little sleep in a hotel room while fairly intoxicated, so the audio quality isn't going to be as good as our usual episodes.  If you think it should be better, then "that just like, your opinion, man."

While spending the weekend at WaaaghPaca 2016 playing in a number of different Infinity events, the Regulars brought all of the podcast gear out and set it up in their hotel room!  We recorded three total installments, and here is the first!

In Part 1 Sean, Greg, and Joel sit down for about 75 minutes with a number of folks who played in the four round Infinity ITS Tournament at WaaaghPaca 2016: Alex, Brian, another Brian, and Luke.  We talk about the event itself, our lists, our games, and a lot of general screwing about.

Remote Presence, an Infinity Podcast.  Episode 5!

Today the Regulars discuss their plans for the upcoming ITS and Narrative events at WaaaghPaca 2016, and as a result of such plans, go into some discussion on Heavy Infantry and more specifically, Heavy Infantry Fireteams!  

We also spend some time talking about tournament preparation and how to approach your games at a tournament: what to bring with you, how to approach both wins and losses, and how to pace your day so that you walk away from the event with the best possible feeling down in the cockles of your heart.

Finally, Joel gets a little long winded replying to a listener request about Corregidor and it's units.
