New Theme Music
« on: October 19, 2005, 05:47:59 pm »
God, does anyone else feels.. bothered  :o about the new theme music? I can't stand it. That guy who says "Gaming News." and "Gaming Reviews." I just can't stand.This, by itself, made Gaming Steve drop like a rock on my favorite  video game podcast list. Now I am going to get a lot of people calling me a jerk, but at least I told my view about the music.

I liked the old music, it kept it 'videogamey'
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

I think its a cool change.  It something that you won't hear on every video game podcast like that pacman sound bit.

Im going reserve my judgement on the new music, I think it will grow on me. It would be cool if Steve could fit the pacman sounds in somewhere, they provided the feel that this is a videogame podcast, plus it gave it that underground feel.

We'll see where this goes...

I was like "WHOA" when I didn't hear the Pac Man opening. I'll hold judgement on it for now.

It's a bit over the top when it is used for EVERY section.  Like "GamingNews!" "SporeTalk!", etc.  Sounds a bit silly but on the whole i think it's a nice little addition.

Now I am going to get a lot of people calling me a jerk, but at least I told my view about the music.

Actually, in the thread for the episode the music premiered in then a majority of the people agree with you. The general feeling was that the music may be okay, but it doesn't fit a video game show in any way. Especially considering the other pac-man theme just rolled so perfectly as an intro. Personally i absolutely hate it because i feel the music is ruining the flow of the show. The themesong is so pumped up and obnoxious that you expect some loudmouth host to sommersault out of your headphones. But instead you get steve who seems so mellow and subdued.

Anyway, i'm sure most of us would prefer things to go back to normal, but the bottom line is that its gamingsteves show and he paid a ton of money for it so its not going anywhere. I just fast-forward through the music, but even that is a pain because i end up missing half the show since my ipods wheel is so sensetive.

Not sure if anyone else is aware but the person who did the theme music is member of this forum.  I still think its good. Steve has already said he cannot use the pacman music anymore so we have to get used to the new one. By the end of the year I think it will sound normal.

I do like the music, just one concern. You talk for X minutes and then suddenly there the music is there again. It kind of interupts the flow. My suggestion is to have music in the background when you talk, that way the whole podcast transitions smoother.

My thoughts.

Personally, I think the new music and what-not is over the top.  I definatly respect that it probably took someone a good deal of time to make but, it doesn't seem to fit the show at all.  The show has a laid-back feel and that's what I enjoy as I think many people do.

Good idea. Maybe the music could start before the end of the talking in the background and transition in louder for the next segment.

Uggg... You either like it or you don't. There's nothing to debate here. Steve's podcast is free. Move along...

But since we're on the subject hey Steve what do you think about doing a jazz version? That's definitely your personality. :D
