Yet Another Podcast Appearance! (yeah, same guys)

I have quickly become a fan of the Digital Cowboys podcast. I've been listening ever since Alex approached me about coming on the show. This week's episode is a fun little deviation from their usual format: they've pooled the guests from multiple episodes and given them each a chance to rant on something they hate about video games.

I actually had a hard time thinking about something to hate. Sure, there's the standard complaints about DLC money-grubbing, Quick Time Events and everything Activision does, but that seemed too easy. In the end, I chose to whine about game difficulty. I'm not great at thinking on my feet (as you may have noticed with all the stuttering I do in these shows) but I think it turned out well. It's a solid episode, so go to that fancy new website of theirs and check it out.

And if you haven't seen it yet, those guys made a great little Project Natal/Milo spoof too.

One of the things that has surprised me is how much I actually consider these guys to be buddies of mine now. I've appeared on their show like twice and played a few hours of Rock Band with them (they aren't lying when they say Paul is a top-tier vocalist), but I already feel like I've made some new friends. And that's pretty damn cool.

In lecture news, the script is coming along nicely. I think it's going to end up being a shorter episode, but James has really nailed it this time. I'll keep you guys posted!


  1. I started listening to their podcast since your first appearance. I really enjoyed it and now I listen to it every week.

  2. theres something id like you to see. i though was intresting.

  3. That's pretty darn interesting. I love seeing cool, unexpected stuff like this pop up in games.

  4. I found them after watching your videos on youtube. I was writing a dissertation for my degree on storytelling in virtual environments and found your videos very helpful and referenced you in my paper, I listen to these guys every week now (i was never into podcasts before) and all your guys are great, keep up the good work!
