Gaming News – Felicia Day

Yeah, I admit it. I’m in platonic love (okay, maybe not so platonic, but I’m a realist) with Felicia Day. She once did a quick intro for one of the episodes of my podcast novel (Murder at Avedon Hill) and when I later met her at DragonCon, she actually recognized me after seeing my name on my badge. Not to mention, I got to witness her hold off her handler/bodyguard so she could talk to a young girl that had been waiting in line for twenty minutes, even though the “Walk of Fame” was closing, and even made the guy take the photo below even though he just wanted to get the heck out of the hall… 😉

Felicia Day has had great success with her webseries The Guild, as Penny in Joss Whedon’s Doctor Horrible, and  has had appearances/stints on shows such as Eureka, House, and Lie to Me. Heck, she even starred in one of the more bearable SYFY Saturday movies, Red: Werewolf Hunter.

And this fall she is featured in two forms of media for Dragon Age 2. Dragon Age 2: Mark of the Assassin is DLC for Dragon Age 2 that will be available on October 11th, and on that same day the live action webseries, Dragon Age: Redemption will also be available on XBox Live.
Redemption was written and stars Ms. Day, and I’m looking forward to both very much.

Here are links to two features on Felicia and the work she’s been doing with Bioware and Dragon Age 2:

TuacaCon 2011

Good morning, P.G. Holyfield here. TuacaCon is a virtual convention that I started last year. Tuaca became one of the “liquors of choice” at the conventions I attend (most notably Balticon and Dragon*Con), and became the ‘unofficial’ mascot of the convention (The company that makes this wonderful liquer is not associated with the convention or with SpecFicMedia.com in any way, other than we like the stuff!).

So what is TuacaCon? Last year in November, we had a 9 hour live “show” online, with author readings, interviews, live music, and live and recorded comedic skits from several podcasters across the U.S. We used UStream.tv for the broadcast, and had a lot of fun with the event (even though I might have imbibed a little too much and fell asleep at the wheel near the end of the night).

This year I plan on doing things right (or at least a little better), with more contributors, the addition of panels on pertinent speculative fiction topics, and more interaction with our audience (well, some of our audience, not the ones that post “Show my your boobs!” in the chat… oh yeah, that was me.).

If you are a writer, musician, or comedian that has the ability to do webcam work (or prerecorded video, in certain cases), please comment here or send me an email at pgholyfield at specficmedia.com. TuacaCon 2011 will be Saturday, November 12th, starting time and duration of the event yet to be determined at this time. I will start organizing this ‘convention’ in earnest starting October 1st.
