Radio Active #86: Return of the Return

Radio Active PodcastOn this edition of Nuketown Radio Active I return from a far-too-long hiatus to talk about the year that was and the year that will be. Topping that list is a look at the redesigned, Drupal-7 powered Nuketown and a return to geeky writing.

With site news out of the way I take a look at the RPG and Xbox 360 games I’ve been playing and put out the call for PS3 game suggestions. Finally, I round out the podcast with some thoughts on the upcoming Star Wars Trilogy.

Getting the Show

Show Notes

Nuketown News

  • I’m back! It’s been over a year … but the podcast is back! We’ll be focusing on shorter shows for the immediate future — in the 10-20 minute range.
  • Eventful year. Got promoted to director at work, which ate up a lot of free time, and launched a mobile optimized web presence at work … which ate up even more! Kids are doing well, wife is doing well, job is doing well. The only thing that’s not doing well? My free time…
  • Nuketown is redesigned! What free time I had went to redesigning Nuketown and upgrading it from Drupal 6 to Drupal 7. It’s now done … or done enough to launch. Look for further improvements in coming weeks as I take care of the lingering issues.
  • Back to Basics: The last year has been terribly stressful, and I miss Nuketown. Now that the site is upgraded, I plan on getting back to writing, podcasting, and the other geeky things I haven’t been doing enough of.


My Gaming life

  • RPGs: Pathfinder: Second Darkness: After two years of Star Wars we returned to our d20 roots with a fantasy campaign set in Paizo’s Golarion setting, follow their Second Darkness adventure path
  • Xbox 360: Borderlands 2: All guns, all the time. My Xbox has rarely been so happy.
  • PlayStation 3: I got it for my birthday and Christmas last year but so far I’ve only played MLB: The Show and watched a lot of Blu-rays. It’s time to change that: what games should I get?

Geek News

  • New Star Wars movies: Episodes 7, 8, and 9 are on their way, with the first arriving in 2015. George Lucas has sold Lucasfilm to Disney, and it’s the best thing that could have happened; Lucas still has influence, but someone else is writing and directing.
