 you could even do a video tour of a game, and show us how the game works, ect. That would be really cool.

That or just a video podcast for all the reviews. Like if he was reviewing Wow, he could show videos of Wow he while he was talking.

Maybe a 5 minute video podcast.

Love the audio podcast and I think the addition of an occasional vidcast (or IPTV show) would be great!

I will probably TRY to do one in the semi near future. However, I am not promising anything just yet. One (major) issue is that I don't have the correct hardware (and software) to do a video podcast. So after I get all the necessary equipment I can give it a try.

I actually have a few things in mind... And if I do it correctly my first video podcast should be QUITE memorable! Heh, you'll just have to wait and see...

Let the rampant speculation begin:
 We finally get to find out that Steve lives in a futuristic dream house with robot servants and chrome furniture.
Or maybe it turns out that Steve is a shape-shifting alien that can turn into video game protagonists as a party trick :P.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Hey everyone, first post!

Now, as to the video podcasts...It's been noted above, and I tend to agree. I used to only listen to the Diggnation audio podcast, but eventually they started neglecting the audio version, so I switched and the space it takes up is kind of ludicrous, as I'm sure it would be for the epic....yes...epic....Gaming Steve episodes. Also, like above, I listen to the podcast while I game, but I am able to take in what is being said, unless it's a heavily text orientated game. Playing FEAR for the second time through isn't all that mentally taxing.

I think that it would be a good thing to TRY, but that it would be unfeasible...at least for a while. If it isn't broke, don't fix it, the podcast is fantastic now and I would hate to see the video aspect detract from the information, which is the important thing. Of course, you could surprise me.

One method, as was hinted above, is perhaps to release certain things, fragments if you will, as video chunks. For instance, you could split the podcast so that the review/retroreview podcast is released with video, giving the opportunity to show clips.

For the regular podcast, a far better idea, in my mind, is what the Ricky Gervais Podcast does. If you watch it, you will see it has chapters built into it, and for each of those chapters, a different little picture is displayed. So the beginning of a show would have the Gaming Steve head, when you get into Game Talk, perhaps it could show a statistic or graph with game sales in Japan... I think this would be the best idea, as screenshots can be fitted to it, and it would take up far less space, and would most likely be feasible on your current hardware.
The reason I hate/Boycott Sony: "Most people, I think, don't even know what a Rootkit is, so why should they care about it?"
