The Unlimited Hyperbole Christmas Special


[ download this episode ]

This Christmas I’ve bought Unlimited Hyperbole back for a special episode, during which I threw the microphone into the crowd and asked you, the listeners, to send in submissions telling me the answer to one question.

If you could change one thing about your involvement with games, what would it be?

I was astonished by the responses which came back and I’ve presented them all here as straightforwardly as I can, with as little droning and editing from me as possible. Settle in for a longer, rougher and more optimistic episode of Unlimited Hyperbole than ever before, with submissions from the following delightful people and a download mirror provided by Split Screen

I’d also like to thank the people who supported the show, knowingly or not. That includes Harriet Jones, Talia Blackford-Cooper and Mike Cook, whose input is best seen in the video below. Music was provided by Josh Woodward and extra hosting was provided by Alan Williamson and Split Screen.

I’m just going to leave this video here, because once you’re done with the show then it’s very much worth watching. The video was recorded at Jake Tucker’s fabulous Videobrains event, where speakers present on a variety of gaming topics every month.

Thanks for listening.
