Brian thought it might be a good idea to try and break the news up into more organized groups.  After only one show’s worth of hindsight, I would have to agree that it seems like  a great idea.  It certainly seems to encourage more conversation from the chat room and I already know it made it much easier on the post edit.

We opened with some Sarah Donner. They were live tracks recorded with her permission at this year’s 2014 Gen Con. The tracks were Going Under and Fossil Girl You can find out more about her at:

Welcome to this week’s episode of Tech Net News and Opinion.  This week we accidentally/intentionally did things a bit differently.  For those of you who have been asking for more news and less music, you got it.  Brian, Knowles, Meshelly, Knunez (iPhone at Geekshed), OmniDragon and Lumpy start and end this week’s show with music but the rest is all news talk.

Remember listeners and readers, if you wish to participate, the way to do so is to get on over to the Geekshed IRC Network and join us in #indienation.  We do the news live almost every Monday from 8-10 PM EST.  (As a general rule, if a Monday is a holiday in the USA, we do NOT do the news.)  If you have items you think we should cover as news, shoot us an email at news@indienation.fm or tweet us @indienationfm.

From Slide to Play:

“Well, it’s about time. Wizards of the Coast has announced that they’re bringing an official Magic: The Gathering game to iOS. While plenty of other card battling games have come to the platform (including Kard Combat, which was also made by the legendary Richard Garfield), we’ve been waiting impatiently for an official Magic: The Gathering game. The wait is almost over, as Wizards of the Coast is bringing Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013 to the iPad this summer.”

From KICKSTARTER

THERE BE MONSTERS

“Map Monsters is a free-to-play location-based adventure game designed by the venerable Richard Garfield, creator of Magic: The Gathering, Schizoid, King of Tokyo, and many other fantastic video and analog games.”

The Article includes a back story on the game before going on to gameplay.

The game uses location via GPS devices. Unlike other games the GPS device will be a secondary mechanic. In other words travel isn’t necessary, but those that do will progress quicker.

The world is the map

Virtual world travel, players will be allowed to travel the world from their living room.

You never know what you will find when you explore a new location.

Items will have a scarcity, or a rarity. Some items will be abundant in areas forcing players to travel in order to trade.

Players will be able to build mileposts, mines, and farms.

Create friends to trade with and use their roads and more.

It will be available for Ipad and I phone 1st.

The will be funded if they can find enough contributors to reach 40k.

Today is Video Game Day

Today is, according to Brownilocks, video game day.  While some sources also claim July 8 is video game day, let us just celebrate it today.  When I think of video games, I still think of my old Atari 2600.  I think it has to do something with that first love thing.  I also remember the era very, very well for my family owned a video store. It was an era of new addiction.  To those of us who lived it, there is no doubt why the controller was called a “joy stick”.

News – Steve Jobs resigns from Apple as CEO

Steve Jobs resigns from Apple as CEO, this comes to no surprise to me actually.

Although Steve Jobs did not mention his health being a factor with the decision to step down as CEO, only one can assume that is in part the reason why.  Apple will survive on its own merit, its excellent customer service and its product lines.  The tech industry is fickle, Apple’s stock (APPL) did fall out 7% after this announcement, but it should be noted the entire market was down as a whole.   Change in companies happen all the time, this too is not the first time that Steve Jobs left apple (shortly after the release of Macintosh in 1984), but I don’t see him returning in the same capacity as before.

What impact does this have on us, the consumer?  Possible little to nothing actually,  Apple will remain strong in the market as a whole.
