I would love to hear about the following games on future #SJGamesLive shows: Car Wars, Gurps, Ogre, Toon, Traveller, In Nomine and/or Transhuman Space. Have really enjoyed the first 3 shows.

That was great....but was over too soon. I'm looking forward to the next #SJGameLIVE GURPS. Please do another.

Loved the responses to both these.
Kudos to all the freelance authors with call outs but special compliments and happy nod to Douglas Cole for Action Points which got some nice love.
As to the setting thing, I am not a Zombie fan so didn't buy Dy One but probably will now just to put in a vote for the concept.
We saw something like that with Ken Hite but I think various genres could use that treatment.

You could get an online game... but I think you'd need editing for it to be enjoyable.

I'm actually a little embarrassed that my 'silly' question won; I would have voted for TBC's question on expanding sections in the Basic Set. I'm not, however, so embarrassed as to give up my prize! :)

Videoconferencing.

(No, it isn't too expensive. Blackberry smartphones can do it out-of-the-box.)

I thought Skype does it out of the box for free. At least it does with audio calls.

Google Hangouts is also free and since #SJGamesLIVE is already using Hangouts to stream their sessions, then it shouldn't be a problem to do a live play with some of the GURPS crew. I think it would be laugh and entertaining to watch.

That's why I suggested it for the next #SJGamesLIVE GURPS. ( Rhea please make it happen :) )

Maybe I'm not the audience for this ... but a bit more attention to focusing the cameras would have helped. Steven was definitely out of focus; Kromm just a little blurry. I had to treat it as a podcast, apart from the interpretative dance segment.

That isn't really an option, as we're relying on ordinary, low-cost webcams for home users, not fancy videoconferencing gear. For instance, my camera doesn't have adjustable focus, or even a way to fake it via its bundled software. It has a fixed point of focus vaguely near where a person is likely to be sitting, but it's blurry in one way or another no matter where I sit. The solution would be a more expensive camera, but as I've used mine maybe three times ever, that doesn't seem worthwhile in this case. Sorry!
