Gaming Podcasts

How much of an "act" is elmo being a complete cunt to everyone every week?

 

If this is the way he really treats people then he is nothing but a bully. I can only assume its all made up as surely the others wouldn't put up with it?

 

And yes, act or not, its is getting very tiresome now

Sean's coming back? Awesome.

Yeah looking forward to that, hopefully he’ll keep the “main one” in check with some indie game related banter.

 

Quite glad Jon Denton’s left tbh. Came across as a humourless ponce on this show.

Chalk me up as another finding the TCGS bickering all a bit exhausting. I have done for a few months but this week made me question if I can keep listening. Clearly it’s all a bit staged or arranged or whatever as there is no way a person with any sense of self respect would allow themselves to be spoken to like that. If it’s staged, that’s fine but can we just tone it down a little? If it’s not, then fucking hell Elmo, are you on drugs?

 

I’ve been listening to Elmo since the Playradio days and the later Joypods when Sean joined are something I would credit as helping me get through a particularly hard time in my life. They were hugely important to me and I loved them. The gentle ribbing of Michael and their banter was clearly borne out of affection for each other. I still crack up when someone says ‘magnetic’ in normal conversation.  

 

This though, all just feels a bit nasty.

I've not listened to a gaming podcast in years but when I saw the last page is full of chat about my ol buddy Elmo I listened the first half hour on my lunch break. 

 

Holy fuck that was brutal :lol: clearly staged (surely?) but well acted

I really enjoyed the recent show with just Mat and James presenting. They sounded far more relaxed and were actually able to finish their sentences without David Turner jumping down their throats every five seconds. Maybe they should stage a coup, sack the main one and draft in one of the Cane & Rinse guys as a replacement. That would be fucking funny.

This would be brilliant!

 

And I love John on the podcast!

You're all getting a bit harsh in here lads. They just need to tone down some of the banter that comes across as personal attacks, some serious overreactions to a misjudged 'bit'. It's usually a small part of the podcast and these guys do listen to feedback, I'm sure it will be reduced even more in the future. It's still a fucking awesome podcast.

I'd like cain and rinse to have an occasional podcast using the standard video game  format.  

 

Patreon subscribers get a monthly 'regular' kind of show which I always enjoy. $1 monthly subscription (or more, there are no tiers yet).

 

I really enjoyed Jon's time on this and think it made for a fun, slightly spiky dynamic. It was often really funny. Looking forward to Sean coming back, though, too. I think he brings a calmer authority and there's less 'acting up' all round. He brings out the best in everyone on the show.

 

I think this week was a bit of a misstep but ultimately, these guys are mates, and they've front loaded the drama and running jokes and 'soapy' elements since the start and it's usually pretty entertaining and well judged. I'm a big fan of the show and along with C&R, it's the one I look forward to appearing in my feed.

The awful skit at the start stops abruptly and from 25 minutes onwards it's a very good episode. They've got a bit too 'good' at doing these political drama bits now and it means they just come across as nasty.

 

Still, we're about to get in to E3 season and TCGS does this better than anyone. Can't wait to hear how they fuck with Matt and his need to be involved all the time.

I didn’t know that, wonder why they don’t push it more on the main podcast. I loved the mega long end of the year round up they did with all the team.

I'm not sure, really. I think they're gradually becoming a bit more forthcoming about this kind of thing, and so they should. They put out a superb show week in week out. Next month they're starting the first of several console specials, on the Mega Drive. Again, I'm always interested in seeing them take a slightly different approach. Looking forward to it.

Interesting, I'll skip forward to the 25 minute mark and see. From the sounds of things I should also give the past couple of episodes a bash too. 

 

I really feel for Mat re: E3. I could never do what he (and others) have done.

I'm 15 minutes into the new TCGS, surely no one is taking this start seriously are they? its clearly a piss take.

 

I agree its a bit played out and the whole "main one" with Elmo doing the power trip thing is getting a bit shit now but its still a cracking podcast.

Of course it is, as pretty much everyone here have said. Like I said though, staged or not it's just not very nice to listen to. Everything afterwards was good.

If its putting people off (which it seems to be increasingly doing) then why bother?

 

As a current  gaming podcast its unmatched IMHO. But the banter is, at best, unfunny and in rather poor taste.
