View Full Version : The Official FC NewsCast: Episode 1

09-09-2013, 08:54 AM
Hey guys. Sorry for the lack of a podcast last Friday despite the promises made. However, here is the first NewsCast. You had all expressed interest in one, so here it is. Next week's will get much more FC-y; we kind of strayed away from being FC affairs heavy since I think we are all just relieved things worked out with the most issues we have had and would rather not bring out another dead horse to beat.

As always, here is the Podomatic player:

And our 2 questions to you guys to send us responses to in listener mail are:

Which new video game coming out in the next year that everyone else is excited for are you not hyped about?
Which console do you think will sell better in the US? Globally? (The PS3 eventually sold more consoles globally than the Xbox 360, but lost by a large margin in the US).

Also, note that there is a contest going on where you can win the equivalent of 800MSP. How you say? All you have to do is create new Podcast/Newscast art or music (ie. intro/outro music) for us and submit it via a piece of listener mail. Contest ends this Friday, so get on it!

And as always guys; Stay classy.

Ah, I thought I had the mic muted when I said that xD

My brother had come in motioning for me to help him with something, to which I replied I was busy.

Ok, you probably have heard that a couple times :>

Also, please bomb Norway. Norway is fucking lame... .-.
