Default Re: Nerds on the Rocks/Dual Wielding e3 Recap Episode

The two guys normally on the show who went to E3 weren't there for the E3 wrap-up. *sigh*

Solid show I guess. Once again wish I cared about what you gentlemen were talking about. Though I am considering watching Konami's conference now. And surprised to hear Shadowfox is still alive. It's been years since heard his name.

Think you guys might have the show too planned out. Don't believe there was a single tangent or a difference of opinion.

Then you'll be happy to know I had you in mind for that episode.

I think as it stands, I had you, Magus, Takesgiantsteps and Uber as the 4 contenders for that episode.

~Edit!~

Had some ideas while walking about town.
An episode focused on toys. The type of toys you grew up playing with. If you still buy em and the likes.
An episode on computers, like what was your first PC and all that fun stuff.
Cartoons (Well several episodes, wanna do one focused on comic book cartoons, video game cartoons, and general cartoons)
Gadgets and gizmos, devices that have caught your eye or that you own or want.

Default Re: Nerds on the Rocks/Dual Wielding FeedBack

There's a new podcast up. The topics are Toy Story 3, Violence in videogames, and of course Cocktail Chatter. Meanwhile, Magus takes over his old hosting duties and Xantar vows revenge.

Also a shout out to Default for his "Guile Theme Goes with Everything" thread. We were so inspired that we made up one of our own and inserted it at the end.

I'll post links to the interstitial music later.

Default Nerds on the Rocks Episode 7

http://nerdsontherocks.com/nerds-on-the-rocks-episode-7

The Nerds are out to prove once and for all that the Guile theme goes with everything! In addition, we also talk about random things for like an hour. We discuss the glory of Lord Pixar, and their latest divine gift, Toy Story 3. We get into the subject of video game violence (only one cast member suffers a fatality during the recording) and as always we end the day with some Cocktail Chatter. Everything from The Superman of Hippies to Ocarina of time Vs Twilight Princess. As always the first drink is on us, and of course its on the Rocks.

Also if you want to read the Toy Story 3 review,

Hmm. I guess I should say it in this thread, then and wait for BAB to combine it into the other one.

Music tracks in this episode:

1. "Combat and Service (Guile Stage remix)" from the OCRemix Super Street Fighter Turbo HD Remix Soundtrack (it's the 27th track)

2. "Go Home and Be a Family Man" by Norrin Radd

3. "Guile Theme Remix" by DJ Barry

Default Re: Nerds on the Rocks Episode 7

Really enjoyed this one, but sadly I had to skip the TS3 talk.

EDIT: Was asked to do a more indepth analysis. Ok reasons why better than the last two. Instead of talking about a certain thing you had a broad topic for which to take sides. That led to an actual conversation with differing opinions. Usually you'd talk about something, everyone pretty much agrees, and then you would move onto another topic and repeat the same format. I think you'll naturally keep improving if you stick to the same folks and get more comfortable talking to each other. Real conversations are more enjoyable than merely having a hit list of things to talk about. Babs had told me you folks would talk while not recording before or after the show. I think those conversations would be more interesting than being overly structured.

And not sure if Babs mentioned the GT talk. In the past you'd mention GT or a forum member in passing without explaining it. Have to assume you have more listeners than the ones here. So prefix item by saying "On our forum at GameTavern.net user so-and-so said so-and-so. Oh that kinky bastard." Or something like that.

Default Dual Wielding Ep 2: The Bag-El Incident

http://nerdsontherocks.com/dual-wiel...dinosaur-story

So after several weeks away (they count it as 3), Dual Wielding is back. There's a snazzy write-up on the site, but I just wanted to point out that the Canadians call a bagel, a bag-el, what the heck is with that?

REALLY?

Quick note, there's a little more of the same mic interference on my end; I'm looking into it.

Default Re: Nerds on the Rocks Episode 7

The problem with the E3 podcast is I don't think there were very many places we could really disagree on. Everybody agreed Nintendo won the show. Everyone thought Kinect and Move were underwhelming after the hype and probably wouldn't sell very well. Everyone thought Kirby's Epic Yarn looked gorgeous.

But if you want Xantar to be opinionated, then I think that can be arranged.

As for the GT shout outs, I don't know about the others but I've deliberately avoided explaining them because it gives them a more inside joke feel.

You know, these are turning into very high-quality podcasts. I hope it manages to get a broader audience.
