I said it once, but I'll say it again. Good job guys, loved the first little episode, can't wait for the first FULL episode.

And I loved the accents, I don't know why but I think English/British accents are cool... :eek:

Can't wait for the full episode 1. Should be brilliant

Oh and I loved the English accents.....despite the fact that I am English and have an English accent! :p

oh man, any ideas if you guys will ever make it .mp3 downloadable?

edit: oh wait, I needa email.

May miss Episode 1 when it releases... Ah well, it's going great so far!

For everyone's information, I think I'm the only person on the show without a distinct accent. So look forward to it!

oldage: They're actually video files, since we're going to be putting in level reviews and such, so the proper question would be if we're gonna make downloadable video files. Either way, I can neither confirm nor deny whether or not the episodes will be downloadable in the near/distant future.

Did you see what I did there? I pulled a Sony/Square-Enix. ;D

I can reveal some awesome news. The podcast WILL be on iTunes in the near future. =)

Wow, you actually did it! That was a really nice episode, and I'm looking forward for more. I was suprised by a lot of the voices.:)

DJLols
05-17-2009, 09:07 PM
I was unable to make it to 0.5, unfortunately, due to lack of TIME MANAGEMENT SKILLS (T_T) but I will be there for Episode 1. :D

Oh, that turned out pretty good considering that you have to do it over Skype. Well done.
Already like yours better then that of the two American kids. Why? Because the British accent is much better then the American. ^.^

... Is that the only reason? =_= :p

I like it better because we stay on the topic, we don't talk about the big clouds in our back yards that could turn into tornadoes.

Syroc
05-17-2009, 09:16 PM

Yes. :P

No, but I can't really judge you guys on anything else so far. ; )

I think we did pretty well in a week, there were many beers over skype I assure you. I think berg is having fun with the forums :p

Syroc
05-17-2009, 09:22 PM
Yes, you did. I'm going to suggest you my newest level so you have some more work.

05-17-2009, 09:34 PM
Wow, I didn't know this was being run by LBP central when I saw it. I sent in my request for my level hours ago. Cool idea.

brilliant job everyone! I'm waiting eagerly for the full episode, DEFINITELY better than the *other* podcast. :P

05-17-2009, 10:14 PM
Thanks guys!
Yeah, I'm having lots of fun with the forums. They are handcrafted by me :D
As soon as we can open them up I expect you all to be there! But make sure you don't diminish activity here, or I'll have to hunt you down and... and... umm.....

Well then! Glad you guys are already liking the podcast :)

DJLols
05-17-2009, 11:52 PM
Sackboy: Very fun level by the way. -nodnod-

It's not being run *BY* LBP central as much as it is being run by members of LBP Central. Don't get me wrong though, we are very close with LBP Central, seeing as we are all from here, and all of our news comes to you first. :D


Why is everyone giving me levels to playy!? It's like I'm running some kind of level review contest or something, where the winners get to be reviewed in our very first podcast episode!

... Oh, wait. That's exactly what's going on here, huh?

LOL Kidding, kidding! Keep those levels coming, I'm lovin' em!! It's already getting difficult to figure out which one I like the best!!

DJLols: Thanks for trying out my level. If you guys ever need someone to record any footage of the game, let me know. I have recorded 200+ HD videos of LBP levels by request so message me on YouTube(Sackboy223 is my username), here, LittleBigWorkshop, LittleBigLand, or even e-mail me. Thanks again!

Just about to listen to it right now on Youtube. What I'll say is that the text on the Youtube page is pretty hard to read as it`s light blue text with a light blue overlay thingymabob.

Pretty sweet, only complaint is that the sound quality is kind of low.

Thanks for the offer :)
Right now our team is pretty full and we've already got Moley doing the recording for us, but if he starts feeling overloaded and needs some help I'll keep you in mind ;)
So basically what you should be trying to do is working 25/7 on making awesome levels that Moley has to record so that he doesn't have time to and is forced to call for help. :D But yeah, really I doubt we'll need to expand our team for a while yet, but thanks for the offer.



Pretty sweet, only complaint is that the sound quality is kind of low.

Hopefully that will improve as we get better at this. I know my mic kinda popped out from everyone else's, so I'll see what I can do to improve that. It's really a learning process for all of us, and like all learning processes, there will likely be many facepalms along the way! :p

I could absolutely listen to you guys talk forever. Your accents are AMAZING. I laughed SO hard when I saw that sackboy that was ignored by media molecule slowly grow on the screen. I look forward to seeing many many more of these! Well... HEARING more of these!

Haha, that was sweet. I can't wait to see the next episode. You guys did great! (And your voices were not as I imagined them to be. :O)

Also, there's another podcast? I've only heard one. (this one!)

kappa: Everyone loves my sackboy. :D

We have two more, and we're doing some slight revisions on that one's eyes, and making them clothes. I'm gonna be sure to post more pictures up there and probably here when that happens. In the meantime, here's a picture!

Hey guys lovin the podcast:), I have a suggestion, you should put some small pictures of yourselves on the bottom of the screen, sort of like this http://www.gametrailers.com/video/episode-57-invisible-walls/49355,
so we can know who is talking, it may make it a bit easier to differentiate your voices. Of course, if their is only one voice throughout the podcast it wouldn't be a problem.:p. Just a suggestion.

05-18-2009, 05:57 AM
I'm very glad this is finally happening. So much organization and hard work all gone to waste when we gave it a shot...

:rolleyes:

Oh well! Will give a listen during the weekend, which is when I usually listen to all my 'casts. Nicely done, guys!

Fjonan
05-18-2009, 06:20 AM
I think you have good ideas but you should work on your pacing a bit. All is a bit slow and streched. For a really good podcast take a look at http://www.myextralife.com/category/extralife-radio/ for inspiration.

05-18-2009, 06:32 AM
Ok lets do the list:

*Yes we have godly accents; Burgerman will learn, we have the tea we can rebuild him...

*Quality is low in places because of Skype but we're all set up there now with a proper paid for recorder and it's really easy to work with now we have the proper tools.

*Avatars will be in episode 1, 0.5 was a mic test really but we thought we'd turn it into a 'Who we are' so that episode 1 doesn't need that awkward introduction when we want to crack on with a load of news.

We should be releasing episode 1 just over 7 days from now and then episode 2, 3 weeks later. When our exams are finished we might see about stepping up how frequent they are.

My exams end on the 11th of June so we'll see how it goes (Maths today :hero:).

moleynator
05-18-2009, 07:15 AM
Yeah... exams might get in the way a bit.

I have IT tomorrow, media coursework for tomorrow and an English essay for friday. Then im going away til monday. :O

Just got round to viewing/listening to that and thought it was great. Looking forward to episode 1. Best of luck with the whole project guys.

Just 1 thing to suggest : I hope you'll change the text in future sackcasts because the blue writing on blue background was very difficult to read.

I have the recorder now. The software doesnt work because it is not compatable with Win32. No idea.

And to top it all off,
the internet only works on my psp so I cant download a fix. It sucks.

I am so @*%^ annoyed!

EDIT: Apparently the disc only works on windows xp or vista 32bit. I have no idea what vista I have...

Keep up the good work and I am looking forward to Episode. 1!
