My reaction is

I’m sitting with a group of gaming misfits all talking at once into a microphone, as laughter fills the air and steaming mugs of hot chocolate fuel our conversation. I’m sitting in on the 1st year anniversary podcast of Lochal Archade, a website that loves games almost as much as I do. In between the roars of laughter and the sugar buzz from too many celebratory cupcakes, we actually do get a chance to talk about video games.

MMMmmm – gaming goodness!

The man behind Lochal Archade (or Lokkkkhal Arkkkkkhade) is Mohommad Al Huraiz. His site covers gaming news and reviews, and of course features a very popular podcast to which he regularly invites members of the public to share their thoughts…in exchange for gigantic mugs of hot chocolate. As he educates us on how Lochal Archade came about (including where the name came from), he talks about how gaming has changed over the years and we each share our own slice of nostalgia as we sift through some of the beloved games of the years gone by.  We talk about everything from in-game advertising to over-hyped game sequels, to hot wax (I will leave it to the imagination to figure out where wax fits in all of this). As the evening draws to a close, I’m shocked to find that we’ve been babbling on for close to two hours, but I’m sure that after some heavy editing the podcast will fit into a healthy 45 minutes.

But before I wrap up, a very special thanks to Lochal Archade for inviting me to attend their anniversary podcast – congratulations on your first year anniversary, and here’s hoping that we have another memorable podcast soon!
