Items tagged with 'Ouchies'
Oh dear… Have you ever played a game so vigorously—so enthusiastically, so POWERFULLY—that you’ve accidentally given yourself an injury? Spaff, Tom, Kenny, and Alice think back on all the times they’ve given themselves a game-related ouchie for this podcast’s Topic of the Week (spoiler: Spaff is made of glass and is currently sporting a fractured radius). Cradle that sore gaming thumb of yours as we read out some stories from you, the listeners!
On an entirely less “owie” note, the Sackies have reached the end of the nominations phase! Keep your butts glued to your seats, as the finalists will soon be revealed and you’ll be able to enter the voting phase. Very exciting :)
Lastly, if you managed to listen past our attempts at horrible puns early on in the podcast, you may have heard us mention some of the following:
- LBP2 Valentine’s Pack is available again!
- Kenny betrays us and makes an appearance on another podcast! You can listen to that here.
- Community spotlights where you can find cool levels: LittleBigPlanetarium Hidden Gems Ep. 7, LittleBigPlanet Central Community Spotlight Ep. 78, LittleBigNetwork Picks.
- Dog Poop DNA site that Tom mentions: http://www.pooprints.com
- As a continuity treat for those of you repeat listeners, Kenny has finished tiling his kitchen! *cue victory music* You can see the results in the image at the top of this post.
New! Podcast available on Soundcloud
We’re currently in the process of testing out the rather super social-sound-service, SoundCloud, for our podcasts. You know, so you peeps can comment on podcasts directly (try it!) and generally make sharing the podcast easier. Let us know what you think in the comments!
As you may have noticed, our much loved Master of Community and Fine Cuisine, Spaff, has been off ill for over a week now, following the painful arrival of Calcific Tendonitis in his left shoulder. Calcium deposits build up in tendons in the shoulder’s “rotator cuff”, leading to inflammation and extremely intense pain.
He’s had X-Rays, super-strength painkillers, steroids injected in to his eyeballs shoulder, and worst of all - has to sit around all day doing nothing but watch really, really bad films on TV whilst being unable to move his left arm. It’s not a pretty sight. Last time I saw him he had resorted to watching Season 2 of “The Shield”.
And that my friends, that’s bad news for all of us.
To help cheer Spaff up whilst he’s sat at home, unable to play games or type anything without excruciating pain, Men Lu drew this get well card :)
We don’t yet know if Spaff will have to sit put and wait for the Calcific deposit to naturally pass in to the bloodstream (an extremely painful process), or if he’ll have to head in to the hospital to have it removed with arthroscopic surgery (also an extremely painful process).
Either way - WE LOVE YOU AND GET WELL SOON SPAFF!
