Podcasts / "With that being said....."
« on: May 13, 2006, 03:51:04 pm »
Okay Steve, I like your show and everything but you've got to cool it on the "With that being said....." thing you do about every two minutes. It is seriously getting on my nerves. You say "With that being said....." literally about 15 times a show. For whatever reason it was especially bad in these e3 podcasts. The thing is, you use it so often, but you don't even use it correctly.  "With that being said....." is generally used as a prefix to some sort of criticism or praise, with the intention of qualifying. Essentially it is used to soften the impact of of whatever comes immediately after the phrase is used.

Example: "Crysis had the best realtime graphics I've ever seen. With that being said.....the gameply is pretty mediocre for an FPS in 2006."

Anyway I like your show, you do some of the best interviews of any gaming podcast on the net, but just chill on the "With that being said" thing.
