It's finally here!

This is it - the beginning of the end for The Game OverThinker as you know it, starting with (like we do around here) the first of a two-part Viewer Mail showcase!

REMEMBER: There's still time to put you're mailbag questions in for a chance at being featured in PART II - post them HERE (not to the comments for this video.)

Saturday, January 10, 2015


UPDATE 1/27/15: Comments on this post (and thus submissions for mailbag entries in Episode 99) will close on Friday 1/30/15 at 11:59pm. If you have a question, don't delay in asking it :)

For those of you just joining us: Episodes 98 and 99 will both be dedicated primarily to answering a final round of viewer questions.

Questions for Episode 98 have already been culled from the comments of a previous post. If you'd like to try and get a question answered on Episode 99, post it in the comments of this post.

Godspeed :)

NOTE: This post will not have active comments, in order to avoid confusion.

Preparations are now underway to ensure that you will not have to wait the same overlong amount of time for Episodes 98 and 99 as you did for Episode 96. As those two episodes will both be dedicated to viewer mail, part of that entails locking of submissions at a certain point.

To that end: Episode 98 will exclusively utilize questions from the original "Final Mailbag" comments section (located HERE), which in turn will cease to be active (read: no more new comments) on WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 7th. After that, a new post will go up, the comments for which will be used for Episode 99.

So! Anyone with questions, you still have until 11:59pm January 7th 2015 to post them to The Comments At This Link; after which a second opportunity will open in a new location. So get to it!

The Final Mailbag

Episode 97 (title forthcoming) is in-production for it's long-overdue release. I'd ask folks not to get their hopes up, as THIS episode's technical business wasn't what held things up (some of that will be seen soon, though.) However, that's not the only thing coming soon:

I can now announce that both Episode 98 and Episode 99 will (both) be the final MAILBAG episodes, devoted to answering fan mail and viewer questions. And this time, there's no gimmick involved: This will be me, Bob/MovieBob/OverThinker answering questions posed to me about either video games, game culture or the show itself.

Said questions will be culled from the comments on THIS blog post, below. Anonymous questions will not be answered, though you're not required to use your actual name. Ask away: I'm not going to answer every question, but I'll answer as many as I can. This will be the last time a mailbag happens in this particular show format, so make it count :)
