Podcasting is hard work, I just got started myself, thanks to quite a few people for inspiring me. Sometimes, "comfort" words just come out. I think Steve has a fantastic podcast, and has some of the "most realistic views" on the gaming industry. Granted I don't agree with every word Steve says, I think, that he has a great and informative show. It's better than half of these other podcasts, where people think thier opinion is the only one that matters. For example (I won't mention names) "IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII think that this is the best game, because IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII have a podcast." You all know those types ;)

Gaming Steve is the best gaming podcast, bar none, whether or not I agree with him or his guests on all points. Keep up the good work Steve, and thanks for the inspiration :)

I'll end on this note

Like Pilot said, GULAG is the best word, ever.

I use 'That said' as a transitional phrase much the same way that Steve uses 'With that being said," and I recognize that I use it often even in posts on here. The reason I do it is simple: It's a transitional phrase. And it's better to make it sound more rational than simply going 'um' and so forth, which is sloppy in verbal discourse; and there are many others that can be used in text that aren't nearly as satisfactory at getting across the transition.

And yes, Japanese use 'ano' a LOT. I used to hear that hundreds of times a day to the point that I sometimes catch myself doing it.

I know, he counted the whole show.

I didn't mind it in the first place, every broadcaster who does a "radio" show uses transitional words that help him/her collect thier thoughts. I started cracking up when he commented on it. It's ok Steve, if you ever quit saying with that being said, it will be a sad, sad, day for computer speakers, and iPods/mp3 players everywhere.

I reckon it's an "internetborn" virus, because after listening after a couple of his shows I found myself using the same cursed phrase...

With that being said, I quiet enjoy using it ;)

I don't mind Steve's idiosyncrasies one bit.  People with the gift of the gab like Steve depend upon many superfluous phrases and cliches.  It lubricates and pads out what they speak.  The show would only be ten minutes long if he used language in a strictly efficient manner.

Brits and their love of the word 'literally' is abused often.  Most cases the word is not needed at all within its context.
