Title: Gaming Steves' (A Gaming Steve Forum Podcast Project)
Post by: eropS on May 05, 2017, 04:23:58 pm
Hey guys,

We should do a podcast. We have great cast between us, enough that we could probably herd 4-5 people together at a scheduled time. Enough so that not everyone would have to participate every week if they don't want to, but not so many that it would be unruly if they did.

Idk, I like talking about games, I think you all do to or you wouldn't stick around at this point. It seems like this site gets views from somebody so maybe they'd listen to us and tell others to since we have such fun **** to say :)

I think we all have fun stuff to say about them, and I think a live-discussion each week would be something worth exploring. We could aim for a 45-1 hour show, talk about games and whatever else comes up as most formats seem to allow.


Let me know if there's any interest in this, maybe we could even ask Steve to route us as a related channel to help with initial listener count


I'd be down, Monday and Tuesday afternoons PST are best for me; we could wrangle up a skype or discord chat and record it like ThreeMovesAhead does.

We can do this I think, and I believe even have some minor amount of success in garnering a few listeners. It'd be worth my time just to chit chat with ya'll weekly about what we're playing, what we're looking forward to, what we think of current games/new games/games news that pops up

I'm actually totally down for this. Would the podcast be about current stuff in the industry or about just whatever topics we feel like for that time?

I'd think we'd dabble in both? Probably have segments to start and if we take too much time going over one or the other maybe focus or split types of discussions, but to start I think loosey goosey to drive some conversation would be good

I'm not really up to date with current gaming culture nor am I interested in it, so I guess I'm more casual? So that could be the kind of thing I talk about if that matters/is interesting. Anyway I'm down to try this but I don't have a good mic really, just average.

Loosey goosey sounds cool but maybe we should set up some a simple outline of discussion topics or rough segments? Cause "a couple of white guys shooting the **** about videogames for an hour" has been done a lot :P Like for instance we could pick a certain series or recent event to discuss or something like that, then maybe some other bit where we discuss something upcoming. That kind of thing

I'd be up for just shotting the **** about videogames (which I don't play) and it potentially being recorded. Sounds like a loff.

Also why not just do the same thing everyone has already done? Not like there'd be high expectations about people outside the forum listening to it, surely? :Y

Sounds interesting, I would be down for that.

Only thing is, I would need to know about the topics ahead of time or else I would probably end up not being able to say much.

Sure, I enjoy getting in discord and talking about dumb **** anyway.
Not sure who would want to listen to that **** but it'll be fun either way.

At the very least, this could just be a fun conversation we have regularly.

That's a totally good point! Nothing wrong with keeping it casual.

Also I'm down to do the editing if yall wanna send the recording to me. Like just to add some lil opening music or something like that.

I'd be down too.

Post by: eropS on May 06, 2017, 03:45:56 pm
Ah, good, I didn't want to edit glad someone has already volunteered!

I think we can do a news/what we've been up to/on the horizon discussion topics to start, topics being based on those things yeah?

How does next Tuesday 5/16 around 1-2pst work for you guys?
Title: Re: Gaming Steves' (A Gaming Steve Forum Podcast Project)
Post by: Slinky on May 06, 2017, 05:34:18 pm
Works for me, definitely.

EDIT: There are a lot of gaming news sources already, though, with more sources than we have. Should we still just do regular old news?
Title: Re: Gaming Steves' (A Gaming Steve Forum Podcast Project)
Post by: Rysworld on May 06, 2017, 05:47:46 pm
Sounds good.

We can do... I dunno, move from one to the other? Have a game news segment and a news news segment. If you want.

Post by: eropS on May 06, 2017, 06:00:53 pm
I mean were not breaking stories, we can just sort of do punditry on things we thought were interesting that were going on gaming wise
Title: Re: Gaming Steves' (A Gaming Steve Forum Podcast Project)
Post by: Slinky on May 07, 2017, 09:33:30 am
What do you guys think of a short bit where we bring up/discuss some game that's overlooked and is either good, or at least interesting? I know a lot of games that I really like that aren't considered classics but are worth taking a look at.

So like, the outline could be something like this...?


What do you guys think of that? Nothing concrete, just kind of throwing together ideas.
Title: Re: Gaming Steves' (A Gaming Steve Forum Podcast Project)
Post by: Celdur on May 07, 2017, 01:13:13 pm
Sounds good, I bet everyone has some **** to talk about that not many people know about.
I have a ton of those off the top of my head anyway.

Looks great to me too
Title: Re: Gaming Steves' (A Gaming Steve Forum Podcast Project)

agree

another idea could be a book club kinda thing where we all play some old game and talk about it.
still kinda sad that patman's book club thing never panned out.
Title: Re: Gaming Steves' (A Gaming Steve Forum Podcast Project)
Post by: Slinky on May 08, 2017, 10:25:10 am
That's a really cool idea, I like that. And yeah, that was a bummer :(

People don't wanna play video games.
Title: Re: Gaming Steves' (A Gaming Steve Forum Podcast Project)
Post by: Slinky on May 08, 2017, 04:46:27 pm
That is a valid point. Like, a video game book club idea is cool but it takes a lot of time and commitment to sit down and play a game and they're also often much more expensive than books. So maybe we could put that idea on the back burner until we've tried out this podcast thing in general?

Also, how should we keep in contact as a group and what do we use to call? Skype? Discord? I just got Discord, so if anyone wants to use that, that'd be cool. Not sure if it's more reliable than Skype. Seems like Celdur has it, dunno if Erops or Ry do.

There's a link for a group.

WELL

Before we upload anything we'd better make sure our verbal sh​itposting is fit to be observed by the internet at large. Give me a time in BST and a subject to discuss and I'll do my absolute best to ensure it isn't.

You need Lurk. He's the next best thing to me.

I'm available pretty much any time of the day - not on Tuesdays would be more convenient for me, but that doesn't mean I can't do them.

Okay well I just got hoisted and can't get off my work tomorrow anymore :(

If Tuesday's really don't work this will be tricky, does anyone have suggested times I'm sorry I want the third one to stick though
