The moment arrives...

Well hello folks, it's the moment you've all been waiting for!...well, not quite. The podcast will hopefully be up by tomorrow, but until then I will give you a little preview of the show.

Drew and I are going to discuss the gaming news this week, first and foremost. We will dwell deep into it, analyze it, question it, criticize it...basically everything you would ever want to do to video game news.
Also we plan to talk about a few games we've been playing which include games that rhyme with Mortal Boo and Portal Wombat. If you couldn't guess what those two games are then I suppose you will have to wait and see...

I will also announce the contest winner, (although as of now, nobody has entered, so get on that!), which might get pushed back to next week if noone gets the question right.

Also, we will initiate a segment where will talk about an old game and have fun discussing the memories of it. You will have to stay tuned to see what game we discuss....

That's basically all on my plate right now, so just stay tuned for the podcast, hopefully tomorrow night! It will be posted on this blog, and if all goes right, on the New Game + Website.

Until next time,
Visit, and
Stay Free,

Here we go!

Hello people that I do not know personally! It is nice to meet you. I'm Max, the New Game+ Community Manager and it is my honor to write the first post on this blog.

This blog, called Extra Exp. is an extra (naturally) little piece of goodness that is a supplement to the New Game+ website.

I know what you are thinking. Who are you and what is your purpose? Well I could answer the first question fairly easily, but that's not the issue at hand. My purpose, however, is up to the readers. The main purpose of the blog is to highlight our future podcast (very near future) and keeping in touch with the readers. I will let you know any inside info on the inner-workings of the website and the podcast.

"Podcast you say, eh?" Well yes, I'm going to host this podcast along with New Game+'s News Editor Drew Robbins. Drew is actually a good personal friend of mine and I'm sure together we can come up with a pretty interesting show. For the show's format, we will go over news, games, and have a contest. But since this will be our first show, we need a contest winner! This week's question is a fact based question but normally the podcast's trivia will be more opinion based. So here goes...

There are two video game references on my blog. Name the game in which both of them come from and the specific text of the references.Email the correct answer to and you might be a winner!

 "Wait, why does he spell his email address with 'Macks'? If you are dying to know the answer to that question (which, cmon, you have to be) then you might just want to tune in for our first podcast!

So, in a week or so, you will be able to listen to the first episode of.....oh, crap. We forgot to name it!

That's where YOU come in! Please feel free to comment with a funny, clever, and CLEAN podcast title.

Wheww, that was a long blog, longer than any that will probably be on here but you gotta start somewhere!

I'll keep you updated on the blog when the podcast will be up, but until then,
