Dead Game News is not dead! Bunch more games shut down that should have been covered earlier, but nobody else seems to be doing this job, so you’re stuck with me. Here it is, likely another episode coming for December. Next up should be Freeman’s Mind.
Sorry for the short notice on this, but go ahead and ask questions / comments for the December voicechat (Dec 3rd) here. Work has started on Ep. 6 for FM.
Here’s the info for the Zombie Panic Source playsession with fans on Saturday, November 25th at 2PM EST.

Anyone can join if we have space, and anyone can watch live at twitch.tv/rossbroadcast.
This time I’m using some custom maps which I picked out. Most of them I’ve played before and can easily swing to either the zombies’ or survivors’ favor, plus I can switch to the losing team if things get too lopsided. These will be the “hold out” style maps I’m fond of where survivors try to survive and zombies relentlessly batter down on the doors and windows until they get inside. This stuff never gets old with me. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
I mentioned this on the last videochat, but Tom White from Weird Videogames (also appeared on Moon Gaming and the Boppin’ episode) is having a 24 hour livestream session where’s raising money for a charity that helps provide drinkable water to regions that need it. You can see his promotional video here. He invited me to appear on it and I will be, assuming nothing goes wrong. I’ll only have an audio appearance so as not to soak his bandwidth, but I may see about recording it on my end and putting it on the Accursed Farms Junk channel afterward.
His livestream session starts at 8PM EST this evening, and I will be appearing later at 2AM EST (November 18th) and stay there for a few hours. It will all be on his Twitch channel here:
I think he’ll also have people beat him up with cardboard tubes live if he raises enough money, but I’m hazy on the details for that part.
November videochat with fans after a 2 month hiatus. I’m mostly just rambling again, you’re not missing anything too important. Besides the game session with fans this month, I’ll also be appearing on a 24 hour livestream Tom White from the channel Weird Video Games will be having for a charity drive. I’ll be appearing at 2AM EST on November 18th on twitch.tv/heisanevilgenius. You can see promotional video on that here. For now, expect more Freeman’s Mind for the future.
