Coming to the Flawedcast Network: the Gamer & Proud podcast

Since I know there are a lot of you gamer type people here, I'm dropping by to pimp my upcoming new podcast on our very own Figure Foreskin's flawedcast.net (even though sadly most of you jerks aren't even listening to Monday Night Flaw), Gamer & Proud. I'm hosting it with a friend of mine who I think is going to be completely unknown to OO people, but I'm hoping some of you guys will hop on board to try it out. It's going to be a monthly affair as opposed to a weekly, and we plan to cover industry news, informal game reviews, and in true Flawedcast family form, lots of off-color humor. Our pilot episode will feature Jon and I discussing Mass Effect 3 and weighing in on it's controversial ending, raving about the Assassin's Creed 3 trailer, discussing the first quarter of 2012 in gaming, a look ahead at some of the summer titles, and more. Shoot us an e-mail at gamer@flawedcast.net and we'll read your e-mail on the show.

I'll post a link next week when the show is up and out.

First episode is available right here! Or, if you're the patient type, you should be able to find it on iTunes later under "Flawedcast Network". Any and all criticism, positive or negative, is welcome.

Just finished listening to it, and it was a good first episode and found I learned something about you two. I think there could have been more to the portion on ME3, because while I've not played the game, what I have read and seen online about it told me that there were more reasons people disliked the game besides whether it was happy or or not(it boiling things down to an a/b/c choice rather than the cumulative result of all your choices up to that point, the endings all being very samey, a lack of closure, massive plot holes/contradictions) as detailed here, so I thought boiling it down to just that one thing was shortchanging it a little. Not that I don't think the "Retake Mass Effect" movement and threats of legal action aren't asinine, but it's a wider issue than people just being crybabies about not getting things their way. But I'll be listening again next episode and I do have an e-mail in mind for it.

Thanks for the feedback, Stu!

By the by, Andy asked me this morning if I could speed production along and get this thing out more than once a month. Due to Jon's wacky work schedule and me being stretched pretty thin what with having two podcasts (and potentially two more in the works), school, work, and a family to spend time with, I can't commit to more than two G&Ps a month, but we are planning to record episode 2 around the 15th of this month. So please, we'd love to get an email from you (and hopefully another from King) and anyone else who wants to contribute to the show. We'd like it to be very listener driven.

Im more than happy to help. Even if Jon and Chris make it sound like the Fox News of video game podcasting...stupid liberals and there mass effect hate! Remind of anything you want me to talk about, I guess we were just lucky because ME3 was such a big story. I doubt anything else will pop up until E3. Let me know and awesome podcast!

Sent my e-mail. Forgot to include a subject, just in case you see that and worry it wasn't really from me or something.

We had literally just finished recording episode 2 when we got King's RUSHED email. So the good news is, we have our first email for episode 3.

BTW, Jon and I were both drinking A LOT while recording. You've been warned. Feel free to shoot us some emails for episode 3.

Was it me, or does it cut out at the 45 min mark?

I accidentally clicked away from the page midway through and a couple of my attempts to listen again resulted in the show only going so far in the player. I think because I tried to skip ahead to where I left off before it had finished buffering again. So just start refresh, start again and wait a few minutes before going to that point again.
Good show, a bit gay joke heavy for my tastes, but you were drunk, so no harm no foul. "Fuck You And The Chocobo You Rode In On" is...better than "Stay 8-bit", but still pretty weak. I'd suggest Jon come up with the signoff instead, but his would probably be "Take care, and don't rape my childhood" or something, given how hung up on the topic he seems to be.

It's not you. It's the media player on flawedcast.net, which I have been assured is going to be addressed ASAP. In the meanwhile, we're already up on iTunes.

I try to shy away from gay jokes, but Jon seemed to be on a tear this week. And yeah, he's really not very open to the idea of things like reboots and all that stuff. It'll be interesting to see his actual reaction to Double Dragon NEON and any other reboots/remakes of older stuff moving forward.

This goes without saying at this point, but we're happily accepting emails for episode 3.0 at gamer@flawedcast.net

Gay jokes are fine in moderation. See my upcoming MNF e-mail for an example.[/hypocrite]

I just realized I completely forgot to post the link to 3.0, so my bad.

http://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/gamer-and-proud/id516691354?ign-mpt=uo%3D4


Also, we recorded the all e-mail show, Game Mail 1.0, hours ago, and that should be up on Tuesday.

Episode 4.0 is available on iTunes and flawedcast.net, as well as Game Mail 1.0, if you missed that last month.

Game Mail 2.0 has already been recorded and should be posted next week. We're taking emails now for Game Mail 3.0, and we should have an actual real, live correspondent attending E3! We'll have him on the next show.

Thanks for the headsup on the mail bag 2 deadline. Knowing my luck my email will be read in September. Time travel!

Recording the next show Friday. We've got a guest lined up who attended E3 and we're praying to God he doesn't flake out. We'll try to make it a good jumping on point for new listeners, and I'd love to get more emails.

EPISODE 5 IS AVAILABLE NOW through Stitcher, iTunes, or right at this here link.

We clocked in a much longer than usual show (2 hours, and 20 minutes) but it's the only show you get for July and we had a lot to cover this time around.

On this exciting episode: Chris and Jon discuss E3, tackle a huge pile of listener emails, things get awkward when the guys earnestly discuss the horrors of sexual assault and Jon declares allegiance to a surprising new baseball team!


Please, check it out, and even if you aren't interested, do me a favor, download it and throw it out without listening. I appreciate the support.

I quit shilling this for awhile but we have a lot of new posters here and I really liked how this episode turned out: Gamer & Proud 12.0

This one was super fun to record and I liked it just as much when I went back and listened. Jon was shithammered and being kind of weird, but we were joined by a lovely young lady named Maria LeDestroyer who likes video games more than I could ever hope to, and instead of trying to go with a formula we just let the conversation go pretty organically (I did try to steer things back onto the rails a few times) and it came off (to me, at least) like an episode of the Nerdist where you can tell it's just a couple of people enjoying the conversation with each other. We also kept it to a reasonable 73 minutes, so those of you with a long commute or a break during the day, hey, there ya go. Hope you guys like it.
