Nice. You actually got it up really fast! I just beat the Bioshock. Good times.

I would have spelled "goody" goodie.

Your podcast was quite frankly embarassing to listen to. The presenters are ill-informed and often display very little knowledge of gaming and gaming cultures. Please don't make any more. It's a waste of both your listeners and your own time.

Could I get a specific here?

Jamin said...

Comments such as "The gameplay was boring". That really isn't specific enough at all. Gamers need details - and this podcast was vague and full of opinionated crap.

Also the presenters demonstrated a general lack of knowledge of current 360 affairs (considering they're meant to be a XBox podcast...) When speaking of Hexic - somebody mentioned "i think Hexic 2 is in development" or something similar. The games been out a good few weeks now.

The comments at the end about internet slang were just cringe worthy too. How could anybody associated with gaming not know what terms such as 'FTW' mean.

...and just generally the podcast was carried out in an unprofessional manner. Leave it to the 1up guys...

Of course, it's vague and opininated. That's what we do! We're just a group of guys who hang out and talk games.

Also, it's not supposed to be an Xbox 360 podcast, it's supposed to be an all-system podcast. But we tend to lean heavily towards 360 since that's mostly what the more opinionated ones of us tend to play(and we're usually the ones who actually show up). But see, I was right about Hexic 2!

As for FTW, I only started seeing it recently. But as I said, I'm old. I used to play games on a Tandy 1000 and Commodore 64. I tend to avoid forums and have hardly ever listened to a podcast.

I'm sure 1up does a fine job, and I encourage you to listen to them. We'll try to be more specific in the future, but I understand if you won't be there to listen.

LOL, we got some hate. Apparently we fail at podcasting. Jamin FTW. We're such noobs. IMHO I think we should talk about the games we're playing in more detail. Boo yaka.
