Alice is the new regular fourth? That's cool.

But.......who here secretly wishes Jeff Green would take up the perma-fourth chair? :D

Not having LAN really sucks when you are hosting a tournament because it's dumb when everyone is in the same room but there is lag an disconnects.

Also you can't play people in other countries with battlenet. If you want to play a friend in Europe you need to pay another $60

Alice Liang - this is going to be pretty awesome if she can make it regularly.

And everyone should subscribe to the Bombcast - best gaming podcast out there (sorry Garnett).

I don't. No offense to the guy, he's great. But he'd twist The Geekbox into something unrecognizable if he was on it.

Garnett as in Garnett Lee? Why are you apologizing to him here? Besides, that guy and his podcasts suck. That's right. I hated 1UP Yours, wanna fight about it?

Okay I just started listening, so what's the makeup now if Alice is on? So Scott, Scott, Karen and Alice are it? Man, that's awesome! Love her stuff on 1UP and Legendary Thread.

I have to agree that Alice is a great addition to the podcast. Having now listened to the whole episode, really looking forward to future ones.

Surprised Alice didn't talk about plushies this episode. She is known for that.

I think anyone who commutes from San Francisco to Sunnyvale deserves to be a regular. Hopefully she'll post on the forums more than Fitch did!

Karen doesn't count as she hates the podcast and only goes for the comic porn & sweets.

Glad to see (hear?) Alice on the podcast, I used to listen to the 1up postcasts and I think she is a good fit for the geekbox (the most grievous insult of all :lol: ).

On the topic of Starcraft 2, man that game is fantastic! I haven't gotten this into an RTS since C&C3. That mission Ryan Scott was talking about kicked my ass, eventually I had it down to one building left with hardly any troops left in my base and it had just turned night... that final marine sacrificed everything for me....

For the first time hard mode is actually pretty damn hard! I'm still only halfway through the campaign.

Ryan ended the podcast way too early. It felt like it was just getting started and then it was over.

I approve of Alice being on the podcast. Her voice is pleasant, and she is sufficiently perky enough to keep me awake at work.

I agree. I was left wanting more.

Word. I don't think people appreciate how much time, effort, and even money it takes to travel down to San Jose on a regular basis.

Agreed, would have been nice for this one to last a little longer. Still gotta catch the train and all.

Alice = Good addition. She was a little annoying sometimes on LAN party but wasn't bad at all this episode.
