E3 2014 has come and gone, and we're still processing all that we saw and did at the big show. One way to get it all out in the open is a nice long chat, and you can listen in. Hear four of us talk about some of our favorite games, our disappointments, and our take on who "won" E3. The answer may surprise you.

This is also serving as our first shot at a podcast format, so give it a listen and leave us feedback in Chatty.

      How do I make this be on my iphone? iCatcher only sees Weekend Confirmed as Shacknews podcasts.

        Right now it's only on Soundcloud, but if we get rolling into making this a regular thing I'm sure we'll set up a more regular feed that iCatcher would find it. I prefer to listen to podcasts on my phone too (I use Instacast). Think of this as sort of a prototype.

      I have magically teleported in from the backwoods of Philadelphia to let you guys now that your feedback is greatly desired for this one. We hope to make this a regular thing and we would like to take your honest thoughts and criticisms into account.

      Now back into the woods I go!

        I know it's the first go so my comments may all be responded to with "duh jerk", but the sound levels are all over the place. I can hear some voices perfectly, some are super bassy (I assume over Skype maybe?), and Sam sounds like she's kind of far from the mic. Robert's voice was right in the sweet spot for the most part. It also needs some sweet drop the bass dubstep intro music. Maybe some Babymetal to annoy people and make me happy.

        The content was totally fine and I'd listen to it regularly during my week commuting.

      Kinda still butt hurt over not having weekend confirmed anymore, so this kinda makes me annoyed. So I think this is when I stop coming to shacknews

        So you are mad that Shack is trying to make new content and bring back a podcast since we already lost one? Maybe you should leave.

        Gamefly killed Weekend Confirmed. The Shack is no longer run by Gamefly. The new owners trying to create new content.

        Give the new crew a few months to get things going. They are doing really well so far interacting with the community so good things are coming.

        Yes, I will miss that podcast hosted by a guy that couldn't name a single videogame character last week on the E3 bombcast.

        Right?! They don't even take us fuckin' Late Night Consoling anymore. This place is such a shithole! But I'm gonna change it from the inside XwingVmanX. Not today and not tomorrow because I'm kinda busy. Probably not even this week or even this month or the month after because I'm pretty lazy. But some day in the not too distant future, I'm gonna change it!

        i remember when people linked the comments of those podcasts and it was the weirdest shit.
        Like an alternate chatty with all different posters all starting new threads with their opinons but without anyone ever replying

      I enjoyed it! Liked hearing what you guys enjoyed and disliked. I'm interested in what you guys would want to do with a week to week podcast. If it was like this, just chatting about games and stuff, that would be pretty great. I don't know if we really need a news podcast since you guys are posting news stories all day already. Glad to see some of the other Shack staffers getting involved as well. Getting to know everyone (new and old) their likes/dislikes, personalities is a really good thing.

      Other than the sound levels being a bit off like other people said, it was fun! Now you just need Oz on when he makes his way back from the east!

      Thanks for the feedback everybody! This was a quick one-off (yes, over Skype), and I noticed the sound levels too. I'm planning on putting together a sort of second prototype/pilot sometime next week, so the feedback is definitely being taken into account. Keep it coming with any other thoughts!

            Maybe they can only talk about games during the sick drops

        June 17, 2014 7:15 PM

        Maybe it would be good for you guys to do some sorta intros and/or some info a about your history with video games or something like that. Like I said would be cool to start to get to know the staff more! Otherwise keep up the good work!

      I like the conversational format much better than Weekend Confirmed's hard segments. I also prefer less "slick" productions; sure, give it bumper themes or something, but gaming-podcasts should just be people talking about games.

        Yep, I remember on WC they were having a pretty heated discussion about the addition of the Auction House to D3 (before its release). Garnett was getting SO worked up about it, Jeff was staying really cool headed and instead of pushing the discussion further he cut it of because they had to move to the next segment which was pretty boring compared to what they were talking about.

        One of the big reasons I love GiantBomb. Just talk until the discussion is done.
