Blah Blah Blah User-Made Video Game Podcast

             Back in December, my friend Jake (GB username commisar123) and I decided to host a Game of the Year podcast. We played nearly every meaningful game released in 2010, blasting through an army of games, and we finally came to the deliberations in January.

            Unfortunately, the audio quality on the recording was unbelievably bad. Something was wrong with our connection, and almost a half an hour of the recording was completely dropped, while the rest of the show had terrible voice quality for me. At four and a half hours, we decided that we could probably just tell you Mass Effect 2 was our Game of the Year, with Deadly Premonition as our runner-up.

            But the initial recording showed us a lot about how we talk about games, and we decided to soldier on. For four weeks now, Jake and I have been recording and uploading episodes of Nerf’d, our new gaming podcast. About a week ago, Jake confirmed that our podcast was accepted by iTunes, and all four episodes are currently available there.

            I’m not asking you to listen to all four episodes, or any, for that matter. There are episode descriptions on every episode, so it hopefully shouldn’t be too hard to find an episode that remotely interests you. Mostly, I’m advertising our presence; even if you don’t listen to podcasts, I wanted everybody to know that we’re around. For anyone who does end up listening, you can email us at nerfdcast@yahoo.com and we’ll read any emails that promote discussion on the air.

            If you don’t feel like listening to us on iTunes, then you can find us at http://nerfd.hipcast.com/rss/nerfd.xml and subscribe to our RSS feed. However, given the choice, I’d prefer you listen on iTunes; the versions they’ve ended up publishing seem slightly better mixed, and (of course) we don’t actually trend higher for RSS feed subscriptions.

         Hopefully, you’ll find something you’ll enjoy on here, and if not, maybe send us an email letting us know what you would enjoy. We’re also on the hunt for something unique, so if there’s something the gaming community at large doesn’t offer that you’re looking for, please send it to us and we’ll see if we can find a way to make that happen. We look forward to hearing from you.

And I'm not even charging money for it! Just drown me in hookers and blow.

I listened for a while. I like football by the way. Video games are cool too.

That's one of the more fucked up things I've heard this year thus far. It's like comparing... hell, I can't even think of a valid metaphor.
 
EDIT: On a side note, I've recently been posting links to a site me and a couple of other Giantbombers made. We often reference Giantbomb stuff, so you guys may enjoy that. THIS is a link to our most recent podcast in which we discuss Mass Effect 2 among other things.

Honestly, I should've fought harder for DP.

I think at one point or another, if there's a slow week in the middle of March or April, I'm probably going to devote an episode to talking about what makes that game my pick. I'm making my way through it again now...
 
Though I certainly understand any arguments against it, as a big reason I can deal with a lot of the game is the fact that I've played so much Resident Evil 4.
