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.
A day late, but no less entertaining, Failcast proudly presents its seventeenth episode, featuring super-special-hyper-mega-special community guest Agent MOO! Necros is sick and missing for this episode, but Yashoki, KING3VBO, and Riser Glen are still here to brighten your day.
The side effect of Necros being absent is minimal, but notable: we forgot to mention the winner of our PAX Swag Contest on the show, so we'll announce it in the post instead. Failcast got dangerously close to winning the contest ourselves when our contest reminder caused entrants to break the cblogs and brought down minor consequences from CTZ and Niero, but after moving our entry space to the forums, we have a winner: Elitechief27, who failed so hard with his post (now edited) that CTZ temporarily banned him. He wins our grand PAX swag bundle! Screencap FTW:
Second place goes to Failcast-alum Dyslixec, whose post was edited, then hidden by Niero. For risking his crotch's safety, Dyslixec wins a Battlefield Heroes poster and a Fallout 3 Survival Guide. Epic fire peen (edited for length) go!
Our runner-up goes to BFeld13, who produced a cblog entry detailing his love for World Famous, even after the contest was moved to the forums, via Photoshop. For his efforts, he wins a Battlefield Heroes poster.
Thanks to everyone who entered (only one person didn't get a prize, so you know who you are), and here's hoping the swag persuades you to get your ass to PAX 09! Send me your address in a PM so I can send you the spoils of your victories!
