“Pwndcast,” pronounced (‘POWNED-cast), is an unscripted Internet program about the gaming café experience through the eyes of and old school gamer, a code programer geek and a noob (new player).  The hosts and guests play a different video game each show, talk a bit about the game itself and inevitably engage in smack-talk and comedy ensues.  It is definitely not about serious gaming, but more about a slice of life through the eyes of a geek, and let’s face it there is a little geek in all of us!
The fact is that 65% of all American households play computer and video games according to the Entertainment Software Association.  And 59% of gamers play games with other gamers in person.  Cyber cafés were set up to enhance the Internet and this online gaming experience.  The cafés, however, are dying a slow death and now “Pwndcast” has taken the initiative to promote the need for the local café while showing us a unique interactive Internet experience.
“Pwndcast” is shot twice a month in Naperville cyber café and anyone can join in the game that day.  Nine episodes of the first season, each running approximately 10 to 15 minutes long, have been shot and released on www.pwndcast.com and on I-Tunes.  The season finale being shot on Thursday, May 28th will wrap up shooting for the first season at NTWLINK Internet Café.  Gamestorm Internet Café in Lemont, IL will be the host location for season 2.  The fun continues in late June.
