  • Hey Garnett,

    Love the podcast and have been hearing for a long time. But this is the first time I make a comment here.

    I have been meaning to write about this for a long time, but have not because I wanted to express myself in a way that did not sound like a complain.

    I just heard the latest bioshock infinite podcast, and finally, for the first time I think you may have actually experienced a frustration I have been having for the longest time with the show, which is the desire to learn about a game, without having anything spoil it.

    I look forward every weekd to hear the podcast, but many times, I find myself having to skip huge parts of the show because of the indiscriminate spoils that come from "talking about a certain game."

    Like many of you, I play games to experience the story, and i like to be surprised by the game and the experience. If Jeff tells me that I am a citizen of Comcordia, and will revolt because of racism and become the rebel in the game, that just killed a major surprised and plot of the game, I will no longer be able to experience and be surprised myself.

    Going back to the Assassin's creed 3 episode. You talked so much about the story, that I had to completely stop listening to the podcast because I did not want to learn more about the game.

    I know it is really hard to talk about a game without giving away spoilers, but I would really appreciate if you could talk more about the gameplay and mechanics of the game, and when talking about the story just give an overall overview, and not specifics of what is going on.

    I love you show, and in no way shape or form I am trying to tell you how to do your job. I just would hate to have to stop listening to a show I love because of spoilers.

    I think sometimes, the eagerness to talk about the game, and the fact that being a journalist, you loose track that most people have not played the game, and wont probably play the first week the game is out. most people are excited about to play the game and want to learn about it but do not want the experience told to them in advance, but rather, want to learn if the experience is worth having.

    I believe on the bioshock infinite episode was the first time, you and your crew experienced what I have experienced all along. Want to learn about the game, but did not want Jeff to spoil any of it. Maybe you can re work the approach so this is not an issue in the future.

    Again, i am not trying to tell you how to do your job, just giving the insight of someone outside the business who would love to continue to listen to the show.

    Thank you guys.
