Not to be outdone by Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Radio Trivia announces its own new character!



Did you like the third game? Let your fellow listener know! Think you've got a better choice? Send it my way and your request may be the third game next Radio Trivia: Podcast Edition! Heck, throw in a question and specific songs if you want. Just remember, it has to be a game found on a Nintendo system in North America (unless we say otherwise)!

I'm not suggesting any more games unless I can be on the podcast to describe them. :P

J/K, good picks this week. I was 50/50 on the rest of the games. I agree about the bridge in Game 4. You can definitely feel the Capcom in this game's music -- I thought it was one of the Megaman X games until the second song.

From the 3 minutes or so of research I did it really did seem that she does exactly what I said she does.

Aww, I miss "RT" and the one round of plain ol' "T" I've played before. When's the next one of those?

Well, as I understand it this is a lot easier to do than RT. I mean it took us maybe 50 minutes to do. RT takes about an hour and a half.

There was talk about having a chat where everyone listens to RT podcast together, since a lot of the fun is the "OH I KNOW THIS!" We'd have to rely on everyone being honest, and not listening ahead.

The live radio trivia is a nice idea, and I still like the format, but we have always run into technical snags with Live365 or a similar streaming service, and in the last few regular and live radio trivias there was a high stress environment coupled with poor attendance. The podcast format just makes more sense. I don't think regular trivia is gone for good--I'd like to reprise the classic 30-question trivia game for special events in the future.

Oh, and the podcast takes more than 50 minutes, Crimm. Prep time ranges from maybe 50 mins to 2 hours, and another 1 hour (on average) to record. Then there's a few hours of editing involved. So podcast edition requires more time than live edition--but I think that extra effort pays off.

That's true. I didn't think about that part of the process. It is faster for the listener, but not the creation.

But yeah, it is a lot less chaotic. I mean Live365 is always a pain, and the other site... uh kontek. That didn't always work right either. I did like when the answers were in the stream. Man, everyone was doing so well.

It would be nice to have a list of previous games featured in the podcast/trivia. That way, I could make a good recommendation without repeating a previous game.

THis is true. I keep track of prior games used so as to not repeat myself too frequently, and it is very useful for me. Live radio trivia had score reports which included the games selected, too....

Perhaps I'll start including a spoilered lists of games in the podcast writeup, or perhaps listing them in the special page (which links to each episode) would make more sense. Thoughts?

SkiDragonOctober 13, 2007

As long as the spoilers are clearly marked, I think it would be a great idea. You should also link to the past trivia results, if possible.

ShyGuyOctober 13, 2007

Yay, I got quoted!

I think I will have to send in a request. Although I'm not sure if the game has been done before. Perhaps the spoiler list would be a good idea.

Game 3 had great music indeed, I also have never played it nor heard of it.

Oh man, Game 4, sweet, sweet memories, when listening I knew I played it before yet I couldn't remember its title haha, it's been a long time, they better bring it on VC.

Oh wow, I didn't recognize Game 5 at all even though I have it, doesn't mean I've played it though heheh.

What is it with this site and members who just hoard games?

Caffeinated CheeseOctober 14, 2007

Hey! I did it before it was cool!

It was never cool.

Caffeinated CheeseOctober 14, 2007

I did it before people accepted it socially!
