Ever since Failcast put out its first episode, we've heard rumors that Failcast was ending. Well, not so much rumors... more like biting comments, such as "you suck", "why are you doing this it is terrible", and "worst podcast ever but it has sound so 11/10". Despite the (justified) hate, we've kept on going strong, and it has been an awesome 2+ years. We've laughed, we've cried (from laughing so hard), we've trolled Necros into the depths of hell and back... but all good things must come to an end. As such, here is the announcement we'd like to make:
Failcast's last episode will be recorded next Tuesday, and then we will fade into oblivion and obscurity, forever forgotten by everyone. In short, it's what we deserve.
Ok, in all honesty, the last 2 and some years have been amazing, and it's all thanks to our listeners. Without you guys, there would be no point in doing any of this. We've had our ups and downs as a show, but you guys have always been there to keep on listening, commenting, and reminding us why we were doing the show. The fact that I got a chance to sit down with 3 of my close friends and record ourselves having a weekly alcohol-fueled conversation, and then people actually wanted to listen to it... it just blows my mind. Bringing in guests every week gave us a chance to really get to know this great community that we have, and I've made some wonderful friends through doing so. Failcast has been nothing short of amazing for me, and I hope that you all have enjoyed the show each week/month/whenever we put episodes out.
And that's precisely why Failcast is not going out with a whisper, but with a bang. We have some excellent content planned for our final episode, and we wouldn't be Destructoid's first officially unofficial community podcast without extending the last show to you guys. If you want to send in a shoutout, a message, a segment, a tearful goodbye while you masturbate, a scathing rant about how much Necros sucks... whatever it is, it goes in the show. Failcast has always been about the community, and we want you, the faithful tens of listeners, involved just as much as we are. Just email your stuff to failcast [at] gmail, and we'll be sure to include it.
Again, we can’t stress enough how appreciative we are of you for your support of us over the years, in spite of how terrible this show has always been. Thanks for the laughs, the memories, and the memes. Without you guys we're just some losers talking about the vidya. Now if only we could get Necros to give us his sister's phone number......
