Troels Pleimert Posted August 19, 2012 Report Share Posted August 19, 2012 There's been some talk in the Twittersphere lately about rekindling the long-lost art of the Superfan Hangout on Google+. So I'm gonna throw this one out in the open and see if we can't collectively cook up something special. For instance, what should we do? At the first Hangout, we played Space Quest. At our second Hangout, we played the fan games. (Well, we tried, anyway.) I had the suggestion of using G+'s "shared sketchpad" function, where we could post pictures and draw a nice little tribute to The Two Guys. (Fred's worried that it'll devolve into a penis-drawing competition. I hope we can show a bit more class than that. ;) ) We could also do a roundtable thing where we show off some of our Space Quest skills. Like, if we got Kevin Wallace in the room, we could turn the spotlight on him for 10 minutes so he could show off his mad Astro Chicken skills. Or we could all watch in awe as PCJ speedruns SQ3 in 6 minutes without dying. Or we could take turns to see who could beat the Skate-O-Rama in the fastest time. Maybe a Skimmer challenge. Just off the top of my head here. And then there is the question of guest stars. Who could we conceivably get to hang out with us, and who would you most like to hang out with? Having Scott Murphy in the first Hangout was a real treat, and one I know we would all like to see repeated. ;) We tried to get Mark Crowe to drop by the second Hangout, and he was up for it, but couldn't make it due to, you know, making the SpaceVenture. I would personally love to see The Space Pope drop by and shoot the breeze with us fans, since he's just as obsessed a fan as we are. Having big fan personalities like Vonster D Monster in there, or a reappearance from Chris Ushko, would be really ace as well. As for us fans, I would dearly love to see Kevin Wallace (Astro Chicken FAQ writer), or Chris Geroux (creator of Eureka Trash Pickup, Pinkunz on Patrol and Orat Soccer), or Christian Giegerich (German superfan extraordinaire). And I know Irishmile is jumping at the chance. ;) There is also the small matter of when, exactly, we could have this glorious "reunion." By and large, everything's up in the air. Let me know what you think. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
