CarCast 01: Pirates vs Witches, RPGs vs Action Figures

This is the first of a spin-off series that we are calling the Gameopolis CarCast. The idea behind the CarCast is that whenever Mark and Jeff are commuting in the car together (talking about games and related topics, as always) we'll record the conversation --AND, if it sounds like a discussion we think our listeners would be interested in, we'll post it up here as a CarCast. Our CarCasts are completely independent of the regular Gameopolis podcasts, and are brought to you totally unplanned, and largely unedited (we only cut out the part where we argued about whether to go straight here and circle around the park, OR hang a left at this intersection and then turn right at the Gas Station). Also, there won't be any schedule for releasing the CarCasts, so you may detect some anachronisms in dates we refer to in the CarCasts relative to the shows' release dates.

We'll be back with the next regular installment of Gameopolis --Show 17.5-- very soon. Until then, we hope you enjoy the random musings of the Gameopolis CarCast!

  • My go-to steampunk text -- admittedly because I was told as much by a science fiction encyclopedia and came to agree with the reasoning -- has always been The Difference Engine, co-written by Gibson himself.

  • Unfortunatly William Gibson is a far more skilled writer than any of the steampunk writers. Cyberpunk has credible literature which is popular of its self outside the gaming world. Steampunk literature isnt really popular outside the gaming world, because it isnt that great literally.

  • good cast J.W, Jeter coined the term steampunk in the 80s. He wrote a series of novels, at least one of which was ment to be a sequal to Wells's classic novel 'the time machine'. in my view, steampunk was basically a rival of victorian scifi.
