Weekend Gamer Radio Show - Out Now

Post by SirClive » Thu Jun 28, 2007 2:07 pm

WG-AX is the new audio extension of Weekend Gamer that brings you a regular slice of gaming chat and music, direct to your PC or MP3 player.

AND IT'S OUT NOW!!! Just click on the link below.

Show 1 has the team discussing the games we have been playing recently, putting Nintendo straight on the lack of imaginitive new Wii titles and playing some fantastic game related tunes.
It's only a small download and is in MP3 format so can be played on whatever audio player you like.

We will very soon start working on Show 2, so please go to our forum and leave us feedback to let us know what you think.

Be useful if people could recommend some music sites for songs to use on the show. I have loads of Speccy tunes that I could use, but I don't think tha would be a selling point!

Woohoo :D

This is a surprise. Should be a lot less work than WGTV, so I'll be expecting more regular shows ;)

I trust you'll finally be sorting out a podcast so we can subscribe to new shows. It'd really open up your potential audience.

[edit]
Also just spotted the WGTV Season 1 DVD.

Will the shows on this have their aspect ratios sorted out?

I am just looking into how pod casting works, but yes it will certainly be more frequent.

Well if you popped into the forum from time to time it would have been less of a surprise for you ;)

As for podcasting, dont ask me... I still got a walkman somewhere, can I use it on that..?

Assuming you have iTunes installed, go to the iTunes store podcast area and search for the title 'French Maid TV'. Episode 1 of that explains how to podcast and the presentation is easy on the eye :D

The DVD will be the first 6 Episodes as they were released on the internet except for Episode one.

You will be pleased to hear that I have remixed the pilot episode and included a new review of Super Magnetic Neo after you rightly pooh-pooh'd my first effort. This will be the version that is included on the DVD.

As for the new WG-Ax show I hope you enjoy it.
It's a different show to the TV one, not only because the medium has it's own set of pros and cons but because it is more of a team effort.
If it proves popular we are hoping to get one out roughly every 3 weeks, give or take.

Do you want your girlfriend to beat you up while watching it?

Its not explicit. Its just French Maids explaining how it works. A bit tongue in cheek with the presentation, but nothing explicit. They may do some bouncing if you're lucky, I forget which episode that's in.

If you're not going to podcast, you seriously need a subscriber newsletter to announce new shows - that's what Shane does with RGR and he has thousands of listeners (he refuses to submit to Apple).

The newsletter thing is good though.

One good thing about the audio show format is that it takes no where near the hours to download that the TV show does. :)

Just watched the podcast and whilst it is easy on the eye, it tought me nothing. Was more about how to record video than how to podcast :(

Sorry. Its a very long time since I saw it. For some reason it stuck in my mind. Listened to the show opening so far, realised its SirClive and Opa in full flow. You use skype or something to do it?
