Oh, for heaven's sake, I leave you people alone for two minutes and--   -- awww ...

Seconded. These hangouts seem to keep getting better and better.    (Incidentally, this is something I wish I'd brought up during that last topic.)

So, ideas for the next Hangout?   I thought it might be fun to do a "Space Quest Debate" format. We put forward questions ("What's the funniest Space Quest?", "What's the most frustrating puzzle?",

Count me in for the 27th. Did we finalize a format/theme, or are we sticking with something general like "gawk at the Two Guys from Andromeda"?

I proposed we did the planned "roundtable" discussion where we told our favorite moments from the series and basked in the glow of yesteryears.

 

But since we got The Two Guys with us, we might also talk about the things we're most looking forward to with the SpaceVenture.

Hey, cool cats. Here's how the coming Hangout with The Two Guys is gonna go down. (Yeah, I'm layin' down the law. Respect my authoritah! Er ... sorry.)

 

We won't know until Friday when the exact time is. The Pope and The Two Guys have to play by the convention's rules, and that means being available at pretty much all times. At most, they'll be able to join the Hangout for about an hour.

 

Knowing full well that we usually have a lot more to talk about, I propose we schedule the Hangout time around The Two Guys' appearance thusly:

 

Hour one: The Hangout starts an hour before The Two Guys' projected arrival.

Hour two: The Two Guys join and we fawn over them like infatuated schoolgirls.

Hour three/four: We sit back, post-nerdgasm, and have a chat about what just happened.

 

For the Hangout itself, the theme is Favorite Moments. We'll be doing it in a roundtable kind of way, with me as M.C., and I propose we all think of two (2) things we want to highlight:

 

1. Our two favorite moments from the Space Quest series

2. The two things we're most looking forward to with the new SpaceVenture

 

From that on, I'm sure we could have plenty of cool stories to tell and interesting conundrums.

 

For The Two Guys' appearance, I propose we all get a turn in with a question or comment for The Two Guys -- again, I'll try to hold the reigns (and not talk too much myself in the process -- yeah, I know, it's going to be a stretch).

 

And finally, if things start to wind down, I propose we all get out a single item of tactile Space Quest goodness that we are most proud of/in love with. By tactile goodness I mean any real-life item, like a game box, a book, a manual, last week's Twinkie Nose Tuesday cake ...

 

Remember, there are only 10 slots available. Who's coming? Raise of hands. I know these slots are already filled:

 

- Myself

- Jess (Decaffeinated Jedi)

- The Two Guys + Chris Pope

- PCJ

- Frederik Olsen

 

(I know 2GFA and Pope will crouch together in front of a single camera. Not sure if PCJ will be joining us separately, or if they're going to try and squeeze in for a romantic foursome?)

Cheers, guys! That was a lot of fun! Despite the late announcement and the resulting low turn-out, I couldn't be happier with how it went. I hope everyone had a blast, and I sincerely hope this hasn't been the last time we've hung out with The Two Guys. Well, maybe if we keep the tentacle porn discussions down to a low murmur next time, we'll have our shot. ;)

 

(I'm just kidding. Bring on the tentacles.)

Something that I should have brought up during the discussion about possible arcade sequences in SpaceVenture was this: There actually was an arcade sequence in an Ace Ventura: Pet Detective adventure game where Ace has to swim up a sewage pipe (in scuba gear) dodging just the sort of things you'd expect to find in a sewage pipe.

 

Now that's what I call synchronicity.
