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.
After a lengthy delay, Failcast is proud (ashamed?) to present the show we recorded Saturday night at PAX. To give you an idea of the surroundings, the show's half-true introduction tells you the conditions under which we recorded. To properly simulate the experience, you might wish to get a few drinks under your belt before continuing. The part of Necros will be played by David Lee Roth.
On the subject of video Failcast: it's coming sometime, but currently has no release date. Just pretend it's one of Nintendo's hardcore games and you should feel better.
Since we have so much swag from PAX, Failcast is going to run a little contest. What do you win? Almost every poster from the show, a couple of demos, the Fallout 3 Survival Guide, random assorted handouts, a ton of tattoos, and maybe some other stuff. Runner-ups may receive some left-over Battlefield Heroes posters. (We've got a bunch of beta codes too, so email us at Failcast@gmail.com if you want one of them.) What do you have to do?
There are two ways to win. The first way is to fail epically, in some way, in some form. Picture, comment, cblog, I dunno, just fail somehow in a really big way. The second is to photoshop yourself on fire. (Failcast is not responsible for any harm you cause to yourself in the process of photoshopping an image.) We highly encourage PAX attendees to not enter so that all those other unfortunate Dtoiders can have a shot at free stuff, but if you want to enter for the fun of it, go ahead. We'll pick the best entry of the different entry methods and announce the winner on Failcast episode 17. Your deadline is Tuesday, October 14th, when we record said episode. Good luck!
