I wouldn't worry about it, clearly he hasn't even "listened" to it, this isn't feedback, just trolling.

Hi Ash and father

Just finished listening to ep 10 of the podcast. Its always good to get some Aussie content on gaming so thanks for taking the time. Also, to provide some feedback - it would be good if you didn't payout on Wii games so much. I'm a PC and Wii player (gaming since late 70s) and while you both admit to having limited experience on this console you also rate it for casual/kid gamers only. I encourage you to try RE4, COD WaW and Dead Space Extinction to see that developers (when they make the effort) can make adult, effective and challenging games for the Wii. It also happens to be a fun family console as well. Perhaps the most versatile on the market. I have just started playing COD MW Reflex not a bad port so far.

Keep up the good work.

Mike

A very valid point, thank you! I haven't seen the true extent of the 'higher end' games; I have only seen/played a lot of the bowling/Shrek et al style games.

I couldn't agree more, and I certainly sing its praises there on several occasions during the casts It has a lot of positives in the market, and I won't deny that!

Thank you for your feedback!

Interesting points regarding the Wii... maybe this can be explored further and in a depth in a future Podcast

Thanks Ned and Ash for your replies. As background - as my kids have had Nintendo consoles (N64, GC, Wii + GB/DS) since they were young I think many older gamers have access to a Wii more than Xbox/PS3. Having young kids in the home means that the type of games usually purchased are G rated or casual. Now my kids are older teens they gravitate to PC games like CS:S, Bioshock, Rome etc or social games on the Wii like Shaun White. This gives me the time/opportunity to play more adult games on the Wii without needing to be mindful of content or needing to buy yet another console. I think this may reflect many other older gamers situation.

Hey podcast people! First up, I would just like to say I've been listening to all your podcasts over the last few days and you can certainly notice the improvement over time. It is feeling more structured, and has a nice flow happening to it now.

Now, just some general feedback, and most of this is highly subjective. I think it would be great if you had an extra person or two who was involved. Whether it was "guests" you had, or semi regular people etc. I was just listening to one of the podcasts and you were mentioning mmo's, and I got the impression that they were something neither of you were overly interested in (nothing wrong with that by the way, and I may have got the wrong end of the stick). It would be cool if you maybe had like an "mmo expert", or something similar, so they could bring their particular perspective to that discussion, and that could be something that could be easily planned out in advance. And not just for mmo's either, but maybe other genres too etc. I have found that with listening to other podcasts, a few extra people just add a little more flavour and diversity to the whole thing. Again, this is very subjective

Overall though guys, I'm enjoying them - it even get's my own juices going in relation to looking at doing something similar! Anyways, keep up the good work

Just occured to me that these would be good to listen to while working, have a jaybird bluetooth headset, so dumped all the podcasts on my phone and working through them now, up to 6 atm. Finding them very good listening
