Cary Grant, 1904 - 1986

How old Cary Grant? Old Cary Grant fine. How you?

Wow. I just listened to this. It is well produced, easy to listen too, good voice, just awesome production. However, we need more content here. This is was just a hour attack on Adlie and others. At times we we see sparks of great information here, but you keep spiraling into your "hate" of Aldie and others. You continually put forth a disclaimer that this isn't about hate, but when 90% of the podcast if slings of insults (minor ones) to others, it gets tiresome. I have faith your next one will be better. I hope so. There is potential here, but as of right now, there is really no content to listen too--just a lot of whining.

Enjoyed the show; I'm a fan of attack radio, though. A I'd enjoy it if it were a little less BGG-centered. There are PLENTY of 'snoot targets out there worth the time. I had no problems with the volume levels.

I think if anyone takes the personalities addressed so seriously as to be offended at the "attacks" you might wanna take a good close look at your life(?).

Gotta get ol' Bubbles up here though.

And one criticism:

1. Quit bein' such a candyass. Don't back off. Ideas, hell, go for the throat, man!


Who said anything about being offended?


Exactly. It's not about being offended. For me, it's about quality product and this is not quality product. Unless you like "attack radio" as a previous poster wrote. I don't. When I tune in, I want to hear ideas not adolescent ranting. The show had very good production values and a nice looking picture on the first post, but unfortunately in this case you can't judge book by its nice cover.

I was hoping that this podcast would show the pure eurogamers why Ameritrash games are better, not how many clever insults we can come up with. Ameritrash gamers are not better because eurogamers are pansies, or because ameritrash gamers are so much cooler. Here is the reason they are better:

Typical conversation after a game of Puerto Rico:

"Dude I can't believe you took the captain on that last turn and screwed me out of shipping. I would have won if you hadn't of done that." Wow. Exciting stuff.


Typical conversation after a game of Descent:

Player: "Dude, I can't believe that you sent that rolling boulder down that hallway and then we opened the door to the last boss and the boulder killed him. That's a funny way to lose.

Player 2: what an awesome, epic game that was. Man I can't believe you killed your own dragon. Lol.

Overlord: Yeah, that is pretty funny. I loved you guys' characters especially you Bogran. Man, I could not kill you with your "crack shot" ability. All you had to do was hide around the corner and zap and in addition you got your +2 damage.

(Conversation continues on for another 20 minutes discussing all the cool things that happened in the game)

Overlord: you guys wanna play again.

Player: Hell no, it's 6 oclock in the morning, but I'm there next week!

My first podcast. A full success. Come on, bring some more of this. I can stand this. Thumbs up !

Can't understand why people complain. Podcasts are for bringing your oppinion to the audience. Podcasting everybody-will-like-this-stuff is lame.

I don't know what do to here. The podcast is "lame," but this thread is entertaining. So where do I click the thumbs down?

I know, I'll just roll these dice and they'll make my decisions for me.


It's like you're in my head!

I listened to the podcast yesterday. I can understand ragging on Vasel* and Schloesser* for the game rating thing, and maybe a little ragging on Derk* and Aldie* for the censorship thing, but overall, I thought it had too much hate.

And I thought Barnes* was going to be on. What happened to that?

The production quality was good. The show sounded very nice, although I have to agree with previous comments about music breaks.

If there is a second show, tone down the hate, turn down the volume on the breaks, and get Barnes* on there and talk about some games!

*While real names are mentioned in this post, nothing negative against those real persons is implied or insinuated, and should not be construed as a personal attack (or attacks).

We should form a support group.

A Podcast by a badboy gamer with attitude. Way to go cowboy. Keep these shows coming and leave the music just the way you have it.

You know things have gotten bad when we need disclaimers such as this.

My people are talking to his people. Seems my rider was too much for the first episode's budget.

Quite possibly the most awsome podcast ever. I suddenly feel the urge to buy an AT badge and a copy of Dune. Time to save up some bag and some $.

Oh. One thing. One important thing.

This isn't a podcast. This is a MP3 file. You need to do an RSS feed for it to be a podcast. Please do that.

No, turn the music down a notch. It might be "cute" and "bad@$$" to have it so loud, but the end effect gives the impression that you don't know what you're doing with whatever mixing/editing/etc software you are using to record your show. I'm not "too old" just yet, but my 73-year-old dad trying to sleep in the next room is. Plus, my wife was trying to watch Gilmore Girls and you kept interrupting her!!

Hi...

As a gamer/designer I am more into "american" games than "euros", so to me your podcast is very welcome. I suspect your first show is more of a gimmick to get the ball rolling and setting yourself aside from the others - and as such its great. I hope that the future podcasts will be slightly more cenetered on games - in which case this could definatly become a podcast I would listen to and enjoy.

I could do without the music, or atleast turned down a bit - but thats just a matter of taste and preference I guess.

I will be keeping an eye on what where you podcast will be heading

Good luck with it.

I never liked talk radio very much. This is a sort of 'shock jock' version of the game podcast. It's probably going to appeal more to people that like the 'morning zoo' type of radio shows. I'm talking about Howard Stern and Rush Limbaugh. Its certainly not for everybody.

I doubt this show is going tarnish its arch-enemies' reputations, those same arch-enemies that are hosting the main link to this podcast. The best thing I can say is that the songs are pretty funny.
"Dancing to merengue is a no-no!"laugh
