EP8 back again. Check its records, let's begin.
Apologies for the delay in content, but we here at the Remote Presence headquarters had a case of the plague(and I don't mean the hacker) hit us, which coupled with a few cases of "work travel".
Anyhow, we are back and healthy again!
Today in our offering we more or less play catch-up over the last few weeks. There have been a number of new releases including new profiles to examine, such as Hector and the Su Jian. Additionally, we talk a little about ITS 2016 and Operation Flamestrike, and to that effect Sean goes into both the 2016 Practice Tournament that he ran as well as his "on the road" Flamestrike mission while he was in Milwaukee.
Greg expands a little into why he enjoys Hacking so much and we have two pieces of listener email: one asking us to elaborate on how we like to use both smoke and mines. We also receive a bit of Pa-NO propaganda straight out of Flamia Island!
Sorry about the lack of timestamps today, and how suddenly this episode ends. We had a case of "Hassassin Bharam Tangent" that I decided to cut out and release on its own, as sort of an "After Hours" sort of thing. That will be out very shortly.
THIS IS SUPER EXPLICIT!!!
Part 3 of our ongoing "Live @ WaaaghPaca 2016" recordings! The last part.
So, apparently some of you have been waiting for this. I hit the forums tonight to see at least two or three posts from people wondering where it was. Some editing has occurred: conversations were removed about prostitution and the mortality of our fathers, and I dearly hope that I got all of it.
In this one we invite Jon back into the room and talk about the Narrative Event, Soft Scores, and a bunch of other crap that I've honestly forgotten about now. My voice was completely destroyed by the time that we got around to this.
It only took seven episodes, but here we are talking about hacking!
There weren't really any new releases to speak of, so the news segment is pretty cut and short. We spend the vast majority of our time this cast going over hacking: do's, don'ts, and "maybe?"s
We begin with some thoughts and overview and move into a rundown of programs by Device type(Hacking Device, Plus, Assault, Defensive). We then go into talk about synergies that make Hacking very useful: mostly Repeaters and Remotes. Finally, for those of you who are still fairly new to the game and find yourself intimidated by hacking, Joel came up with a little homework assignment to hopefully help work you into the N3 hacking system.
After a short break we go into three listener emails: the first centered around the "Gotchya meta", the second about what to do when confronted in slow-play situations, and lastly Greg gives some insight on the Imperial Service Sectorial.
