Topic Suggestions

Every now and then, we want to have an episode dedicated to topics than you guys want to hear us discussing, so we would like for you to post suggestions in this thread.

You can suggest any topic of discussion at all, and we will go through them and pick out the ones that we actually know something about, and think would make for interesting listening. Obviously we can't discuss every single one that is suggested, but we will try and fit as many in as time will allow us. Your name and topic will be read out, and then we will have a good old chat about it.

We would like to do this starting with Episode #3, and make it a regular feature for future episodes, so get posting.

Fan Fiction.

All the people appearing in the cast could read a Fan Fic (all could read the same one, or a different one) and could then do a sort of review?

Maybe for one episode, you could try and get one of the LF owners in there, and people could email in some questions for them...

I'm sure there are lots of people who'd like to know what's involved in keeping this place running, and what goes on behind the scenes...

Jumping in games would be a great topic since It's already stirred up some interesting posts in the TOR forum thread.

Or some of the more interesting developments that have come out about the TOR storyline + gameplay? (ask Moeller )

Just to throw an idea out there, how about hosting some form of community competition? As opposed to the forum-specific events (such as Javyar's, etc) this event would be heard by the entire community. An art contest, per se, or a story, that might fit in with the topic of the upcoming podcast, could be a possibility.

So, for example, if the next podcast was about The Old Republic, the competition might be to create a drawing on that subject, or write a short story. In essence, I suppose that it's like the jingle thread (in the sense that it's a bunch of people competing to earn recognition, or have something shown/read on the podcast).

Just my two cents.

Probably a bit of my own wishful fantasy, but how about some sort of reenactment of scenes in TSL, like a radio drama? I'm sure leXX can belt out a good Kreia impersonation.

Not to rain on your parade, or bash your idea, but this is LucasCast, there is the whole right half of the forum list that has nothing to do with Star Wars. Doing a TSL-centric podcast kinda alienates all the non-SWKnights people.

The future of Lucasarts, is their true fanbase dying or is there a surprise around the corner for the longtime fans. Will they return to making more than one or two flipping Star Wars game a year!?

Maybe an episode on games you'd like to see created in the future. For example, a game based entirely Han Solo, and his early life before the meeting with Luke and Obi in Mos Eisley. Discuss content that you would like to see in the game, what type of game, and things of that sort.

I think you should dedicate an entire section to explaining the hierarchy of Imperial ranks. Is "commander" higher than "captain?" This confuses me, because in Star Trek Captain Picard's second-in-command was a Commander. Yet, in the Star Wars universe, "commander" is often given to someone in charge of a small task force, with captains being the commanding officers of individual ships. And army captains? What's with that? Are they roughly equal rank to a naval captain or are there differences? Colonel? Where does that fit in. I need a list from Grand Admiral to Ensign here!

So yeah, discuss that.

I am curious if you guys and gals would be interested in listening to our pilot episode. We refer to it as "tarst". It basically is a generic podcast where we were testing our voices and basically doing a mock up of a podcast without adding any real information. We have also toyed with the idea of doing a separate blooper real, because not all of the bloopers make it into the episodes. Some of them are really, really funny! Some of them you will never hear because they are not forum appropriate!

I would most definitely be interested in hearing all of the discussion that took place.

On a more serious note, I'm sure that most of us would enjoy hearing the full LucasCast excerpts, myself included.

Id like to suggest a recurring "Ask the Cast" segment where podcast hosts answer a few selected questions from members posted in a thread here. Many other sites even tv shows have such a component. It gives us a chance to get to know cast members better. We got a taste of this in the 'movies and games you are looking forward to' bit in Ep2.

Here are some questions I think many would like to hear the cast's responses too:
*What is your favorite SW movie and why?
*What is your favorite SW game and why?
*What was the geekiest SW related thing you have ever done?
*Has LA abandoned PC gamers? Why?
*What do you think of DRM and digital distribution?
*Do you have a handheld? What games would you recommend on it?
*What is your favourite type of pizza?
*What is your favourite area at LFN, at any particular time. eg JK forums 2002!
*What upcoming technology are you most looking forward to?
*What do you think should be the key features in the next gen of consoles(gen4)?

I have several hundred more

The subject: MMO's

Specifically, can the Old Republic MMO make a dent in World of Warcrafts titan grip on the market share in MMO gaming, and where does that leave SWG? What kind of impact will this have on generational gaming, specifically, could this deter older gamers from playing or even interacting with the newest generation of star wars fans?

As a hardend WoW player and a Star Wars fan, I'd love to talk about this live with ya guys.

They pretty much covered all of this in Ep1.

As LFN is so diverse, their content would need to be general enough so that all members toiling away in their respective corners could pick it up and enjoy it. As an EU fan, Im hardly going to ask them what they thought of Booster Terrik painting his ISD Red, and no one except for an EU fan would want to hear about such a thing

That's what the separate areas are for after all.

WOW!

This is really taking off just the way I wanted it too. Not only are you guys submitting GREAT topic suggestions, but you are all getting involved with it. This is basically YOUR podcast! The way we intended it to be!

Now the tricky part is figuring out which topics we will do in Episode 3. We DID promise a "revolving door" of members on the podcast, but we don't want TOO many people on any one podcast, because it gets confusing for the listener. We already got many members on the starting lines getting ready to get in on the cast. Boba Rhett is a definite possibility for Episode 3. Actually, Rhett was part of our "tarst" cast, but was unable to sit in on Episode 1 and 2 for personal reasons which will be discussed in detail on the cast itself! While Lynk is still very much the executive producer of all things LucasCast, he has graciously volunteered to "sit out" the next cast so that somebody else can speak in his place. I been kind of elected to be "host" because even though I screw up a lot,(so sorry for leaving you out two times Lynkeh!) I guess I am pretty good at driving the discussions from one topic to the next.

While Episode 3 is not fully ironed out just yet, I CAN promise you that many of the topics suggested in this thread, will in fact make it into Episode 3. We will be recording Episode 3 this Sunday, and will have the finished product out the week after, (3/23 if I am not mistaken). There is also a slight possibility we may be "hiring" (in LF terms, that means working for free...lol) some additional members to help us stream things along a bit. We already have candidates in mind, so please do NOT bombard us with private messages and requests.

Glad you are digging the cast, and keep telling your friends about us. The more listeners we gather, the more successful. That will help us in our quest of finding groovy guest speakers for our future podcast.

And yes, leXX DID own me with her comment "Groovy, why do you game?"

The only reason I let that slide is that many people don't understand my approach towards video games. I am a "recreational" gamer. Not a true competitive gamer. I seek video games as a source of entertainment, not for competition. If you see my xbox live profile it even states in my bio "I may suck at most games, but I am here to have fun, which is what games were intended for, so deal with it!" That pretty much states it all. I have not "ranked on a server" since SWBFII came out for the original XBOX. That was one of few games that ever came natural to me, and I enjoyed every damn bit of it. leXX and I go way back to the days of Jedi Academy where we used to spar off saber only duels in the Matrix Dojo. And yeah, she used to kick my ass back then too! leXX has always been more of a "GAMER" than me which is why I chose her to be on this show. What is more interesting than a good looking British female gal that can kick your ass online at any game? That's why I will let her insult me pretty much whenever. leXX rules!

The only reason I let that slide is that many people don't understand my approach towards video games. I am a "recreational" gamer. Not a true competitive gamer. I seek video games as a source of entertainment, not for competition. If you see my xbox live profile it even states in my bio "I may suck at most games, but I am here to have fun, which is what games were intended for, so deal with it!" That pretty much states it all. I have not "ranked on a server" since SWBFII came out for the original XBOX. That was one of few games that ever came natural to me, and I enjoyed every damn bit of it. leXX and I go way back to the days of Jedi Academy where we used to spar off saber only duels in the Matrix Dojo. And yeah, she used to kick my ass back then too! leXX has always been more of a "GAMER" than me which is why I chose her to be on this show. What is more interesting than a good looking British female gal that can kick your ass online at any game? That's why I will let her insult me pretty much whenever. leXX rules!
Grooves knows I wasn't being vindictive or anything, we go waaaaay back. I hope noone else thinks that I was either. Just having a laugh with him because he always say "I suck at it". That doesn't mean I think he sucks, because I don't. He could probably kick my ass at a hell of a lot of games.

Man I miss Hermes Place Matrix Dojo and Jah. Those were some good times.

And Grooves, you're gonna make me cry dammit!

*kiss*

...

Some really great suggestions here. We will definately be discussing some of them in Episode #3, so stay stuned, and keep them coming.

Sounds great Groovy

I hope a couple of my questions make it in!

me too. For me games are a way to wind down after work and now my postgrad studies. If they stressed me out more, Im sure I would spontaneously combust I personally have the most fun playing games like NHL, NBL or FIFA with a bunch of mates - which we do religiously on a Tuesday night, with the amount of beer and pizza consumed being more important than whatever our game score is

Individually, I like RPGs like Mass Effect and NWN2... but due to my epilepsy(short bouts of gaming only), these literally take me years to finish !
