Failcast is a community-focused podcast featuring Destructoid's regular users. It is recorded every Tuesday night and (usually) is released on Thursday. Every ten episodes, Failcast features a Destructoid editor.
If you want to be a guest on the podcast or have an audio segment to contribute, send an email to Failcast@gmail.com and we'll get back to you. Keep in mind that we have a long guest list, but you will be put on it; you'll just have to wait. Any audio segments should be in MP3 format, with a bit rate of 128 kbps and a sample rate of 44.100 kHz.
Just like that asshole who shows up to the party two hours late just to be "fashionable," Failcast is out late! Just, you know, in case you missed the fact that we're posting on a Monday. But I think we had some good reasons. King3vbo had a ton of real life work. And food poisoning. And got a segment late. And was playing Steel Battalion. Hm, maybe I shouldn't have mentioned that last one. Oh well, feel free to send him complaints for ruining the end of your week.
Speaking of ruining good times, E3 happened last week, and since there was no Podtoid or Podcastle to cover it, Failcast (or Madninja) had the visionary idea to hold community roundtables to discuss the Big 3's conferences. Which sounds great in theory, until you get to the part where Sterling held a replacement Podtoid and RetroforceGO! talked about the retro news there, making the fact that our episode was delayed rather silly. However, we're a stubborn bunch, and we're getting this out to you even though we utterly failed at keeping a good schedule last week. (Heads up: this week's preview episode will release on Friday instead of Thursday due to circumstances beyond our control.)
Ignoring all that bonus E3 stuff, we also have two community guests on with us this week since Charlie is off being Asian: BigPopaGamer and GuitarAtomik. They join Yashoki, King3vbo, and Necros to talk about...um...games and stuff. You know the drill by now.
Finally, have to point out that BFeld13 and Dead Movie Star made Failcast masks! Can you believe it? We certainly can't.
