I'm thinking of making a drinking game where you have to take a swig everytime Steve says something is his favourite game/movie/book/ of all time.
The only problem is that I don't want to be responsible for all the hangovers the next day.

Steve's inability to speak really irks me at times. Combine that with his horrible lisp and it is a wonder that anyone actually even listens to this podcast.

ps. it is even worse when he has guest speakers that sound like they're still going through puberty.

Then why do you listen? Please, be respectful. You know where this is heading. I advise you to stop.

What lisp?
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

I can tell because I have been through several years of speech therapy to correct my "R" and "S" and "SH" sounds, with my accent sounding very New England/ Bostonian, where I would replace an "R" sound with a "W" sound and drop the first consonant of every word.

I'm beginning to do that in my oral english. It's annoying, but I only do it in a few words and not very often. I have a problem pronouncing "Three" though. I spit all over my table when I try and say the "Thr" sound. Argh

Personally, I think Steve does a fantastic job with the Podcasts. He ranks #1 in my list of 'casts to listen to. One small issue I have recently is very noticable in Podcast 49, the phrase "With that being said..." is used sooo often it drove me nuts. =)

Unless I miscounted, he said it 49 times in episode 49.

I second that. Single point of annoyance though.. great podcast. I'm from the Netherlands and listening on quite a regular basis, so big thumbs up to you Steve!

Yeah, go us!

I have no problems the way Steve pronounces words. I do it even worse ;)

Same here. :P

Though I noticed in the latest podcast that Steve says "Excetera" instead of "Etcetera"... And he says it like a gazillion times like that... Either that or I need a new pair of ears.. :P

And it's actually all pretty understandable. Podcasts can be worse, just listen to the GDC2006 recap with the co-host from Texas (or at least he sounds like he's from texas)...

That Steve said "that being said..." a lot in podcast 50?  It was like every 2 minutes! It was actually kinda funny cause I started guessing when he was gonna say it next ;D Did anyone else notice this?
