I thought the podcast was FINE, mmmm hmmmm.
On a more serious note as a long time listener who really enjoys the podcast I have some feedback. I catch myself listening to the podcast for the beginning where you guys are talking about what happened in your lives this week, movies and series you watched, and general banter. This is the best part of the show, it's like catching up with old friends and just having a guys night out.
Unfortunately I feel the podcast tends to drag towards the end when the gaming discussion begins. I'm not sure why, but it feels you guys sometimes are just going through the motions. One segment that comes to mind is New Releases where there never seems to be any interesting discussion except when there is a big game release. One idea is to just cut this out and just talk about what you guys played this week. It doesn't matter what came out, I can go get that news and in-depth discussion else where.
The podcast at this point is really a personality driven entertainment show. I'm sure most listeners come to hear Cheapy, Shipwreck and Wombat and the awesome dynamic between you guys. It would be much better if you guys re-focused the show so that it centers around you guys and your passionate discussions and disagreements. Just talk about interesting topics, it can be gaming related or not.
One great example of a consistently great show is Rooster Teeth's podcast. That used to be a video game focused show but then morphed into a personality show where people tune-in to hear their conversations which can be about ANY topic.
Thanks for the great show. I listen every week and it really makes my long NJ-NYC commute much better. Hopefully we can get another Manhattan or Brooklyn meet and greet soon?
I agree with basically everything that was written here.
Also, the Arby's loot crate discussion has been great. If Wombat doesn't want to keep any of the stuff from the loot boxes once it's finished, you guys should have some sort of ridiculous contest to give it away what he doesn't want. I'm sure there's someone out there who would want to win Wombat's scarf or dice or whatever...
