Baldurs Gate I Pad and Android
Recently Atari, Wizards of the Coast, and Overhaul Games teased enhanced editions of Baldur’s Gate and Baldur’s Gate II, but they were tight-lipped on the details. Now the companies have announced that Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition is coming to the Apple App Store in summer 2012
The enhanced version contains Baldur’s Gate and Tales of Sword Coast.
We took a music break with two Beatles’ parodies from Carrie Dahlby Road Tripper and Dear Britney.
We All Watched TableTop
TableTop is a new show about Table top gaming that is produced by Wil Wheaton and Felicia Day. They played Small World – basically fantasy risk. It looks like it has more Strategy
We closed the show out with a mashup from Bob Ricci (and his clone band), Two for Five.

If you listen to Indie Soup, you know that @meshelly420 and I love Paul and Storm. This comedy music troop is one of our favorites. I will take a moment to warn you that now all of this stuff is safe for work. This track is not exactly in that category but just close enough.. heh. Also since we picked JoCo, yesterday.. it seemed kinda right to go with the opening band next. (Could I get a dejected arrrrr for the bad pun?)
These guys have lately made it a habit to tour with “JoCo”, aka Jonathan Coulton. In my opinion, it is a darn good habit and they should keep it up. this is the second time they have toured together and I am looking forward to another in the future. I will let them tell you about this upcoming song. It is a live track I managed to record with their permission at the Beachland Ballroom when they opened for, and, played with, JoCo.
This was a really great show at the Beachland Ball Room in Cleveland, Ohio on October 23, 2009. I captured it with my Zoom H2 Portable Recorder. Also present were Paul and Storm but that is another day’s POD. However, if you are into great live shows, I would suggest that you check you local venues and mark your calendar when you see these two awesome acts come to your town. I assure you will not be disappointed. (JoCo has a page of show dates as do Paul and Storm.)
