It’s possibly the most famous line to be uttered before you learn about something stupid/terrible/ridiculous/downright hilarious happening.
Everything was going smoothly until…we deleted our own YouTube Channel.
There isn’t actually a punchline here, because we really have gone and deleted it.
Why? Well because Duncan was suffering from “fat finger” and “slow thinking” syndromes and went and deleted some connected stuff he shouldn’t have; and we can’t reclaim it. So www.youtube.com/gamescastthe is officially dead, which is utterly frustrating as we were starting to get things moving with it.
The eagle-eyed amongst will have realised that there was no regular Friday show this past week (28 September 2012 to be specific) and that is for a very simple reason; Eurogamer Expo 2012.
We decided to cancel the regular show during the Expo to then come back the following week (Friday 5 October) to give you our own impressions of the Expo and our personal highlights. It isn’t just about us though because we want to hear what you guys thought about it too.
It’s live and available for you to stream/download right now over at our Spreaker page.
We’re also well under way with our YouTube channel which is gaining more videos as the days roll by. At the minute we’re concentrating on getting all the previous episodes of The Games Cast Season 2 up on there until such time as we have caught up with the live shows. That means that each new Friday episode should be up on YouTube by the end of the Sunday following; unless something happens to delay production of course.
It has to be said, the old website was looking a little raggedy. We still had reviews up on the sidebar, the slider was showing posts from last year and everywhere you looked it referred to us as a podcast – in some places it still does. And, as you may know, the clean up has been in the works for a little while.
Well, here it is. All shiny and nice-looking – at least we think so. We brought in the three wise men, improved the navigation and brought the sidebar a little more into the style. The main posts now have a bit more text before the break and each post has a nice little banner image above it. Everyone say awwwwwww.
The short answer is no, but as we guess some of you may have missed the announcement on here and Twitter/Facebook, we have now moved from broadcasting live/recording on a Tuesday night, to a Friday instead, still at 9pm.
On the plus side Episode 12 will be an hour long show on Friday 25th May with a special guest.
Come join us live at 9pm this Friday on Spreaker.com as it should be a great show as we already have a good lineup of news and developments to talk about. And in the meantime follow us on Twitter and find us on Facebook (a like would also be awesome) to keep up to date with what’s happening. (more…)
First off, let’s just do a quick reminder that we have now moved the show’s live broadcast day to Fridays at 9pm. So there is no show being made tomorrow (Tuesday 22nd May) but we are recording again this Friday 25th May.
As always, all of our previous episodes are always available over at spreaker.com/thegamescast.
Mean time we’re working on getting our YouTube channel working, and the first stuff we’ll post on there will be the old episodes. The eventual aim will be to have each new episode going up as well as some vlogs from us in between each show. Down the road we’ll bring you extra video content from events we go to like Eurogamer later this year.
Let’s start with the usual shenanigans and give you the link to Episode 11 to make sure you’ve heard the aural pleasure that is The Games Cast.
Heard it? Good!
For those of you that thought “screw that I’ll listen later!”, lets do a quick recap.
This week we went over the Diablo 3 errors and player problems, including Blizzard’s assertion that the game should really only be played online; Sony’s continued sales problems and Jack Tretton’s stance on blocking pre-owned games at a console level; GAME Australia’s fate and Jade Raymond’s desire to get games to grow up.
So if you haven’t listened yet that should get your juices going. Don’t forget that we still want to hear your comments about the topics covered!
Things have moved quite quickly here at The Games Cast in the first 10 episodes of Season 2 and we are now looking at changing our game to bring you guys more and better content; at least that’s the idea.
It’s all stuff we’ve talked about here and there on the show or on Twitter/Facebook, but we’ll save the full details for Episode 11. If you have no idea what we’re talking about because this is the first time you’ve found this site, to make things simple get yourself over to this page and have a listen to what we do.
There is one idea that we haven’t talked about at all, anywhere, publically, but if all comes good then it’ll be a big development in giving you lovely lot a chance to directly influence the show. By “if all comes good” we mean assuming that Paul, Phil and Duncan can agree on how to work it properly. It is however an exciting development for us!
