It is quite impressive how effective the sound cues are, though. As he mentioned, for a game that came out in 1998, it has a pretty reactive and versatile soundboard. I've played games in recent times that don't change the footstep effects when transitioning from concrete to wood and such. That attention to detail is quite commendable.

@nime: One of those business decisions, I guess. Waiting to make sure that focusing on the personality side of things was sustainable and profitable, and only then deciding to head in that direction. It's the difference between the larger, corporate-run sites and places like GiantBomb.

You reckon we can convince Brad to give up DOTA and turn to speedrunning Dark Souls 2? Breaking Brad for the World Record?

The first few weeks/months/(longer?) are bound to be a little chaotic; transitioning from structured employment as part of a much larger whole is drastically different to managing it all themselves. From the way Greg and Colin were talking about it, it seems that they wanted freedom to interact with their fans on any level they wished, which was impossible due to IGN commitments. Yes, as an independent entity they are banking on personality more than anything else to make their living, but I don't see them necessarily competing with GB. For now, at least, they are embodying the mantra of Podcast Beyond: A Conversational Podcast. Relaxed, unguided, and maybe even unorganised. Will this structure maintain a strong enough community for them to survive on the proceeds alone? Maybe not, but it's going to be a learning process, and I expect much will change in the coming weeks and months as they find their footing.

It's incredible how the runners can make some of my favourite games appear like entirely different experiences. Playing for speed makes you look at the game and its mechanics in a completely different light. That wall? Clip zip. That attacking enemy? Moving platform. That clearly marked path? Just a suggestion; runners make their own routes.

It's really something.
