<I tend to have Tuesday and Thursday nights off if you still need people. I've been on a podcast before. Bonusexp.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;Pm me if ya still need people [East Coast]
Plus I am on the site all the time.
Id be interested in doing this, would even be willing to set up a twitch channel for our Podcast so people can watch from time to time,
Ive got all the recording Software (X-Split, ect). Ive thought of setting up a podcast myself but never got around to it. Give me a PM I'd be willing to set up a Skype call so
we can discuss. Really hope you consider me.
Man, I would so jump on this, but I worry my qualifications are lacking. Mostly because A: Most of my forum activity is contained in short, snide posts., B: I don't play as many games as I used to, though that could be easily remedied. It's usually game paralysis. In other words, "Oh god, oh god, so many games, which ones do I play".
and C: My microphone has a slight weird echo to it that detracts from audio quality. Damn thing cost me 30 bux, it should sound good.
@phatmac: Late to the party, but I'd be interested in giving this sort of thing a try. As for your general requirements:
Other than that I'd say that if you've read any of my posts on this site, you'd know I have strong opinions about things but always try to present my point of view in well-reasoned arguments (sometimes with just a little hostility). My sense of humor tends to dwell on the sardonic. I am experienced at speaking clearly and concisely, with a smattering of vocal training and a good amount of time spent in customer service positions. I do have a tendency to talk really really fast when worked up/tired, but even then I'm sure to enunciate and will quickly self-correct.
In terms of opinions, I tend to favor PC gaming to consoles, and PS3 to 360. I typically focus on mechanics before anything else, as my blog posts should indicate. I often find myself taking positions that could be considered anti-consumer, such as arguing in favor of on-disc DLC and having no problems with Leviathan's exclusion from the core ME3 experience. I'm very positive about games and will usually give the developers the benefit of the doubt. My favorite three games are Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions, Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty, and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3.
You already have a bunch of the top/well respected/long time users already interested so chances are slim that Id even be considered.
I would kick myself if I didn't throw my hat in. Here I am for your consideration.
I live Scotland/UK, I would be able to make any time to set, as-well has having a Scottish/European outlook is different. (id urge at least guesting in other UK Duders or such if I am not that one.)
Play PC games alot aswell, mainly with friends. However the world of Indie games is very good at the moment. I play alot Kerbal Space Program.
If you want an idea of my PC tastes and experiences, just think of Dave, Vinny and Drew. Alot of the time I find myself nodding and remembering games they are talking about. Or overall the Flight Club in general has opened me up other games E.G Rise of Flight.
Keeping my nose to the ground on weird and new games.
Like KSP, Blockade Runner, Dwarf Fortress and other games of similar ilk. I love more true to the ground well made Rogue-likes. I spent alot of time in DF doing the Fortress part and recently more time doing the Rogue-like Adventure mode.
I enjoy 4x games aswell. Alot of the geekier games I suppose.
I try to keep up with game's however I find myself becoming more picky with recent games, however keep my ear to the ground.
I also like to keep in the know of tech and the back ground of the gaming biz. Why GB is so wonderful.
I am an extremely reliable person. When my friend at college was making his project. I was there to be Cameraman extra and anything else...while he waited for others to turn up and he was streeeeeessseed.
There are some audio. I am the dude that gets hut by the door ( I was honestly hut by the door) The dude that gets slapped in the face (I was honestly slapped in the face.) I had other "stunts" however all lost it seems. So when I commit....I commit.
It hasn't stopped me from dabbling and trying to improve.
Apparently It sort of failed.
I have had better success with "News" post.
I could go on about how much I pay attention to the industry and games. Ive spent hours talking to either my friends about the directions on games or even to my father who is 58 years old and plays games all the time.
An early memory is its days before Christmas and I find my dad playing a Master system we never had before. He lied to me saying he it got it as a loan from my cousins. So had to let us play with it before Christmas day...which I opened up a box to find a master-system Same Master-system my dad was playing Ultima 4....I came through and found my dad asleep while in the middle of battle.
Common thing to hear in recent times is "AAAAH!!" BOOOM! "YOU FUCKING BASTARDING CREEPER!"
As he enjoy playing Minecraft, so much so I had to buy him his own account instead of using my own.
Hey, I think we're past the point that you're really desperate for applicants but i'll throw myself in. I have a good-quality mic, in fact i've actually brought something to show this;
I play some games and visit the site probably a few times a day. I also help run a little baby game development group that has made a couple games of minor note (you can check out one of our coolest and most popular ones here: http://gamejolt.com/games/platformer/vivid/12437/ . We're actually making one right now (although be warned, i'm only a designer and writer, so don't go asking me about programming!!) Anyway, I figure it might be neat to get a perspective from someone who is part of a group actively involving themselves in game development.
The above video either perfectly represents or totally misrepresents the kind of guy I am, depending on whether you like it or not.
Just under 12 hours to go, right?
Three hours and twenty minutes to go, right?
