VirginWorlds Podcast #83
Wed, 22 Aug 2007 14:16:00 GMT [download/play]



Brent is taking a breather this week, but you still need your MMORPG news right?  Here it is!  This week Marc was kind enough to stand-in on the VirginWorlds Podcast and (Brent thinks) you might want to hear him from now on.  Marc covers topics such as Saga, Dungeon Runners, EVE Online and Mia Rose's World of Warcraft adventures.

Enjoy the comical (and informative) break from hearing Brent prattle on and on and give Marc a thumbs up on a refreshing change for this week.  (Be sure you listen all the way to the end of this one.  Seriously.)

'Chipmunk' by Brent
Submitted on 2007-08-22 10:27:48 CST
The encoding on this podcast has made the all-too common chipmunk voice take over once again (damn flash players never seem to handle enough encoding rates) so please don't use the embedded played seen above to listen to the show. My apologies. Someday I'll find (or make) a player that supports everything properly. Use the link on the left to download or stream the show with your favorite players or pick it up on iTunes or your podcatcher of choice. Thanks.


'Brent come back please!' by spinlock

Please don't leave ever again. This was a painful experience. Kinda like watching a fat man pick up a hot babe at the post office.


'Laugh' by Brent

Oh come now. I rather liked what Marc did. :)


'I like the chipmunk /shrinks' by kamolahy
Submitted on 2007-08-22 12:09:52 CST
Yeah, I've only ever noticed the chipmunk audio on the Guild Cast episodes... which seem to get it pretty consitently.

I'm a busy man with little time, so the chipmunk speed is nice so I can hear everything in half time. Am I the only one?

I'll go to my dark corner now...

Great job Marc... For a first time podcast you did a great job. I have listened to Virgin Worlds since the very first podcast... and I have to say even Brent has evolved since his first podcast.




'LOL' by Marc
Submitted on 2007-08-22 14:45:15 CST
:) For those who figured the show was about as painful as Muhammad Ali trying to win a game of jenga, all i can say is you have to start somewhere. Love it or hate it, thats one more thing to cross off my "Things to do before i die" list. Await my return of the "Post office Pimp Squad" podcast. Until then, I'm out like the fat kid in dodgeball.




'Lots of slang' by scytale2
Submitted on 2007-08-22 19:01:37 CST
Tbh I didn't understand half of what was said, since Marc seemed to use a lot of slang, which we don't get in the UK. I couldn't hear "Fred" so I missed this too.

This is the prestige podcast of the bunch and I don't think it should be given out to non-experienced people. It brings the level down.

Having said that, as a first ever Marc podcast, I guess it was ok, although I can't say I found out much in the way of news.

Overall, I think Brent is far too generous with his IP. If he'd said that he'd like a stand-in for this wek, then I'm sure some professional people - Troy, Darren, Shawn, Adele - would have stepped into the breach.

It's a bit like the 6 o'clock News being presented by someone from Jim'll Fix it - the heart was there and some budding talent, but it wasn't really the 6 o'clock news...

I'd make a snarky comment about that last post but I'm too busy evading ninjas.

Like a lot of the posters, I found many segments of this week's podcast painfully unfunny. The "Dragontooth" interview was unlistenable IMHO, and the WoW thing wasn't bad, but it kind of trailed off with no payoff. However, I've gotta give Marc credit for putting himself out there and giving it a shot. His doctored inteview with Brent was hilarious.

I laughed more in this show that I have any in the past, so yes over all the show was bad at least it was fairly funny.

I have to say, this podcast is primarily excellent because of Brents ability to put together a coherent bit of information that is actually interesting. His smoothe and smarmy voice doesnt hurt. Marc, your attempt was noble, but I kind of get the feeling that you were making fun of gamers. I dont know why. You seemed somewhat pompous when you spoke to the gentleman (who was completely inaudible). I was forced to fast forward through the ridiculously long WoW segment, then fast forward through the interview because I could not hear it. In the end I was able to listen to about 5 minutes of mediocre podcasting. Good try, really it was, but please Brent, if you are going to miss a week just dont put out a podcast.

Obviously this was pre-planned by Brent in order to stir up listener feedback to justify his six-figure raise from $0 to.. err maybe not.

Looks like the media host for all of the VirginWorlds Collective podcasts is down right. Even the website for the media host is down. I am guessing they are facing some sort of major outage, so if you're trying to grab podcasts, I guess you'll have to wait until they figure it out. This has never happened on a scale this large before, so it must be a pretty significant outage. Many areas of the country have been facing outages due to the weather, so I'm not surprised at all. Apologies for the inconvenience.

I thought, before I checked here that maybe I had really become horribly jaded. Anyone who is willing to put content out there on the net for the public, for free deserves at least a little recognition imo, so I won't labour the point in light of that. I didn't enjoy it and I look forward to Brent returning.

All respect to Marc for putting in the time and effort.

Big thanks to Mark for the effort. Non illegitimus carborundum, dude. ;-)

This was a lot better than than I expected from a new podcaster. So what if the humour did not suit me (apart from that last faked interview which was brilliant).

It will be great to see how EVE will turn out on Linux. Man, now REAL nerds will play MMO's too! /shock

I'm a little late in coming, but haven't been able to access either this podcast or SUWT, yesterday or today. So I'm hoping your "breather" this week is a complete hiatus like mine was. =/

I listened to the show today and thought that Marc did a very good job in voice, pacing, and production. I too was often confused at the tone or style of the show, but comedy is very difficult to pull off. Any stand up comedian can attest that although things may be funny, they often fall flat. I am glad that I try to keep my shows serious, because humor is such dangerous ground.

I would welcome Marc back, but this time ask him to be upfront and serious. I think he could really pull it off. Don't give up, but perhaps wait on the humor until you can nail a solid show

My two cents.

Very enjoyable show, the Dragonclaw guy made me laugh. What a super nerd, reminds me how rubbish games find an audience. Dunno what scytale was complaining about, i'm from UK and understood every word Marc said.

i can't wait to do my episode of VW now. If i get half the comments here then thats at least double the amount i get for my own show. :P

Oh and for what its worth, i liked Marc's show.

It was like drinking Sprite when you're expecting water. Once I got into it though, it was a laugh. It was like tuning into News at 10 for one reason and getting the Daily Show. Not what you expected, but you'll like it if you give a chance.

So all in all, I liked the show. It was different, and it payed off. I think another pure Marc show would be overkill, but I think a Brent and Marc show would be killer. Or a Troy and Marc, or Brenden and Mark; someone a bit more serious for more balance.

P.S. I was thinking... If Ryan and Gary did a VW show... I think it would feel like this. (I mean that as a compliment.)

Sorry to the new guy but I barely made it past 9 minutes before I just shut off the podcast.

Be glad when Brent makes it back.

The instant the long, drawn out, unfunny "fake interview" joke began... I should have stopped the podcast. My brain scars are my own fault.

I found this show very entertaining. Good job, Marc! The silly editing and the ability to poke fun at yourself made it quite endearing. :)

(It's too bad that you can't polish this turd of an episode though.)
