Much like how the Tested podcast does sometimes. Seeing the guys do their thing and watching it all go down would be pretty cool.

Or is that too much awesome?

It would be amazing I don't think they could do it regularly. I'm surprised it hasn't been a thing yet maybe they are shy in front of a camera. ;)

No.

I don't really understand the appeal of watching people sitting around a table talking.

I think for some people it's the same reason they want to watch stand-up comedy instead of just listening to it. Sometimes see the facial features during certain debates gives it a little more emotion than just listening to the tone of their voice.

They record the podcast on Mondays and a lot games are embargoed until Tuesday so they wouldn't be able to livestream their discussions.

It's been brought up in the past, and they've always said no. Basically when talking around the podcast table they talk about all sorts of stuff, some of which is under embargo or NDA meaning they can't talk about it over the internet. They just edit that out. They don't want to have to be careful about what they say while recording the podcast. They just want to roll with it, say whatever and then worry about editing out anything they can't talk about after they've recorded it.

@MattyFTM: That totally makes sense. But saying that, I'd love to see GOTY feature podcasts streamed live. Anything they talk about will be long out of embargo since all those games are obviously released. That'd be cool...

doesn't work either, they record those way in advance of when they're published.

Oh yea, that totally slipped my mind. Ah well, looks like it might not happen then!

I'd like it, but it's not really essential for me. I mostly listen to the audio version of the tested podcast anyway.

#13 Posted by Dany (7886 posts) -

They clearly don't want to do it even though people want it.

Livestream podcasts, in some cases take out the magic and fun of podcasts. Sure, the E3 ones have been effin' amazing, but I feel every time I watch the Tested livestream podcast, seeing Norm spend all the time on his laptop or Garry on his iPhone takes me out of the illusion of thinking they're all really getting into the discussion and going to punch each other or something. Anyone else get that?

#15 Posted by Winternet (7935 posts) -

Not really interested in it. If you're going to have a livestream is either because interaction with the user is going to be a thing (which is not the case with a podcast) or it's an event which demands an instant coverage (again not the case of podcasts). Besides, I assume most people are not in front of the computer when they want to listen to the bombcast.

It's completely different. A comedian is performing and needs to work with the audience to be successful. A podcast is people sitting around a table talking into microphones.

Just because they do it doesn't me it's great. I've watched their live stream once and quickly realized it was dudes sittings around a table talking. The reason most people listen to podcasts is so they have something to listen to while driving or doing something else. When you add video it becomes the activity you are focused on and I don't see how people can't have something better to do than watching people at a table.

without knowing i think the likelyhood of that happening is really small. but the livestreammed the the E3 ones and thats something

I guess not everybody has an action packed non stop thrill ride of a life like yourself. Shame. Actually its not cause then I wouldn't get to watch Jar Time which is one dude talking to a screen.

I like watching the Tested podcast stream because it gives it just that little bit more personality to any particular podcast. Which is why I think it would work for the Bombcast. Plus the E3 podcasts are a good example.

PAXcast?

Nope, they want to give the attendees who paid to be at the event to get their moneies worth, would defeat the purpose of attending if its also online.
