I was a bit sceptical about Alpha Strike, but having played it I’m sold! It’s so much of the old feel, but so much smoother.

Then again, Catalyst is terrible when it comes to errata…

I would love a BattleTech actual play from you guys. Concerning the streaming twitch thing, I hope you go that way exclusively, because I personally have no interest in watching and unless you keep a purely listening audience in mind it strongly lowers the quality for that audience (meaning me as well) which could mean that I at least would drop listening, which would certainly sadden me.

After listening to this episode I went back and listened to episode 281 about current technology availabe for online tabletop gaming. It would be intersting to see you guys do an update of episode 281,after 5 years to see whats changed,what is still around and what has fallen away. What new resources people have now for gaming online.
