As did I. It's a neat addition to the community in general (plus it was great to finally meet the staff! :xp:), and I will definitely catch the later additions.

I thought it was great. All of your different accents really helped distinguish who was who.

Yeah, that's kind of how I read it, too...it scared me until the fourth time I read it.

I would just like you all to know that whoever votes 'It sucked' will be summarily banned.

Your form is sloppy. Keep practicing and you should have it tightened up in no time. :) QF T & E.

I don't know if I necessarily qualify as professional in a DJ sense, and I am probably amateur at best for directing (highschool AV producitons)...However, it seemed like the format was a bit aimless. Like you were trying to make it like a radio talkshow usually on in the mornings on rock/metal stations except...even there you seem to all speak over each other.

Do you follow an agenda for the show--a structure? I realize that is hard to do in an absolute sense... just something to consider in general I guess.

I will not judge your talents since I am the kind of person such that it would not be accurate to judge me by your first impression only. However, I am scratching my head as to whether or not your (you as in the crew, there) bringing up threads won't degrade into a bit of bashing and slamming. Now if you are going to talk about the more serious points and discuss those...fine. I'll listen to that...to a point.

You don't come across as sarcastic enough to satire things in a way that would make people laugh. So since that was the first one and you have already telecast what you intend to do...I will reserve judgment on this. If you have improvisational skills and think fast on your feet, that is a plus here.

Personally I found it hard to stay with: you were all just kind of talking. Then again it is an acquired taste for each one...so expect my critiques to change to a certain point with each passing podcast.

All in all, hey, it's as start.

It's a bit different from radio talk shows because we're not all in the same room when the recording is going on. Radio shows seem more streamlined with regards to people talking, but that's because they can give each other visual cues as to when they're able to talk. In a podcast, this isn't exactly possible, especially since all our participants live across the globe. It's something we're working on and we hope with time we'll get better at it.

We do, actually. Groovy is our ringmaster and he helps guide the topics we talk about. Sometimes we'll go off tangent on certain topics, but we think that's okay because it keeps the discussion organic.

If you'd like to see the generalized topic list, there will always be a thread accompanying the podcast which outlines what we talked about. (Here's the one for Episode 1, you can view all the details in the spoiler tab (http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?t=195980))

If we bring up threads on the forums, it will always be in a positive light. We're not using the podcast as a pulpit to bash people, because that's not the point of the cast.

And as for discussing serious points, yeah we can do that sometimes, but for the most part we like to keep things light. No one is going to want to listen to something that's srs bsns all the time, after all we're not talk radio or the news.

You don't come across as sarcastic enough to satire things in a way that would make people laugh.
Satire and sarcasm were not necessarily what we were trying to convey in the first episode, nor are they our defined objective whenever we record a podcast. We're just there to talk about video games. We're all friends, so it's easy for us to laugh at and with each other.

People talking is kind of the point of a podcast. ;)

As I said, there's always going to be a thread to accompany each cast that gives you an outline of what we talked about. So if you're really finding it hard to keep up with us, just look there.

Thanks for the feedback!

Good to know. :)

Ah. Don't mind if I do. ;)

No one is going to want to listen to something that's srs bsns all the time, after all we're not talk radio or the news. Well, even then they have their segment. My appologies if I am making a apples 2 oranges comparison.

We're just there to talk about video games. We're all friends, so it's easy for us to laugh at and with each other. True enough...How about comedy in a more...generalized...sense?


People talking is kind of the point of a podcast. ;) :argh: My bad.

Glad I could help.

R.I.P. Paul Harvey... Paulette Harvey, eh? Paulette's rest of the stories.:lol:

I prefer not to force comedy... when the funny hits, it just hits.
