Our Special Guest: Michellybells
Opening Theme: Operation Wolf (Re-Soxed)

This episode of the Sockscast starts with the somber news of Satoru Iwata's passing, while at the same time looking forward to the impact he left on the industry as a whole. We're joined by Michellybells this episode, as she makes her Sockscast debut, filling us in on King's Field, a weirdly obscure Japanese-only Famicom title, and a host of other topics. Rhete's running blind through a forest and lamenting the impending doom of Flash, and Polly is a good speller! All that and a NEW Sockscast correspondent!

As always, feel free to send socksy questions on over to podcast[at-sign]socksmakepeoplesexy.net and we'll send you a MILLION DOLLARS! (NOT REALLY!)

An Update That's Not A List or A Podcast!
July 2nd, 2015

No, for really-reals, I'm not just pullin' yer string. It's not even a Pat update either! I actually got around and did a thing for the site! The first thing that's not been a list or a podcast in some time! Maybe we're slowly inching our way toward the road of being an active site again.

Anyway, here's a thing I wrote looking back at one of the earliest reviews on the site and how my opinions may or may not have changed since then. It was kinda fun doing something like this, but I won't promise it's something I'll be doing more of in the future, but I do hope it helps to keep the creative juices going!

Catch ya on podcast day!

The Gen 5 list!
June 8th, 2015

It's finally here! Earlier in the year we asked to SnS forum goers to list their favorite games from the fifth generation of consoles. That's Playstation 1, Nintendo 64, Sega Saturn, and even less popular systems like the Atari Jaguar and 3DO. The resulting list is the longest one yet, with a staggering 218 different games making an appearance. This is the first time competing consoles have been listed together, who will come out on top in the end? Let's find out!

You Dirty Mother...
March 16th, 2015

For the first time in almost 1,600 years, Pitchfork rises from the bottom of the sea to deliver what may possibly be his most anticipated written article for the site (at least given the volume of email I've received about it over the last three years.). Make sure you got some snacks and a comfy seat handy, folks...

However, if you're really interested in supporting Pat and his creative efforts, I urge you to follow the link below to pick up his newly-released novel, All the Lonely People:

Also, don't forget to shoot me an email if you're still interested in appearing on our 10th Anniversary live cast. I'm still working out the finer details, but I'm receiving your emails and will get back to you all soon.

Sockscast Episode 15 will be available sometime Wednesday-Friday of this week.

Stay tuned!

Help Celebrate SMPS.Net's 10th Anniversary!
March 9th, 2015

Next month will mark the tenth year that Socksmakepeoplesexy.Net has been annoying the entire internet with its own unique brand of bad videogames writing and humor. But I'm not the only one to blame! Many of YOU have been a part of this catastrophe and it's time to own up to your sins!

To celebrate our tenth anniversary, the plan right now is to host an ENTIRELY LIVE version of the Sockscast (which will be archived after we broadcast) and we want to talk to many of you as possible about the site or whatever else may happen to tickle your fancy. If you're just a casual reader, only listen to the podcast, or have contributated something to the site over the years, we want to talk to YOU, and we hope you wanna talk to us!

Currently, I'm in the planning phase, so I want anyone who wishes to be a part of the 10th anniversary podcast to shoot an email off to polly[at-sign]socksmakepeoplesexy.net to let me know you'd like to be on for a bit. As we get closer to the actual date, I'll be sure to email you and let you know when we'll be broadcasting and work out when it'd be convenient to bring you into the call.

I currently have no date set for the event, but my hope is to do it sometime in early April, but plans be fluid sometimes and peoples' schedules don't always play nice.

I'll post more updates about the tenth anniversary livecast as they start coming together. I hope we get the chance to talk to YOU!

Over the last two weeks Rhete has managed to play every single goddamn game EVER CREATED, John warps back to 1985 with gaming's most beloved franchise, and Polly has been in the same dungeon for almost twenty hours!

While I've got your attention, why not drop by the Sliders 'n Socks forum and help Rhete compile another huge list of games. Now that the holidays are past us, we hope some more folks are a bit more eager and have a bit more time to write up some of their games from the fifth generation of consoles.

Also, Awesome Games Done Quick is happening RIGHT NOW, so head on over there for some awesome speed runs and if you can throw a little money their way for charity.

Sockscast Crew's Expanded GoTY 2014 Lists!
January 1st, 2015

Welcome to yet another year on this miserable little planet! But everything doesn't have to be so bad. In fact, we're starting the year off with some fresh new content for you all to have a gander at.

As promised, myself, John, and Rhete have all produced some site-based versions of our Game of the Year lists for 2014 that we mentioned on the podcasts. We all kinda tackled the situation in different ways, but if you listened to the podcast, you know I can't really trust these two ding-dongs to do things normally anyway.

And so, presented for your approval, the lists:

And with that, Game of the Year is freakin' over. The Sockscast will be returning to our regular recording schedule hopefully tomorrow night, so there's hope for a new Sockscast for your new year coming Sunday!

And yeah, yeah, I know, I need to get this page cleaned up and a proper site for the podcast. I'M LAZY! Some things I just didn't make resolutions about!
