Update on Future Production
Right now I have no plans to produce more episodes of the show. Part of it is because I don’t think the show has caught on like I thought it would, but more so I do not have the drive/time to to produce the show at a quality level I think it deserves. From NeoGAF to twitter, even the recent kirby episode didn’t get much attention (still 4,000 downloads which is regular). One of those “Is anyone even listening to this show” thoughts came into my head. It isn’t the Patreon support, but with The FitCast I am driven to put out quality shows each week because the show literally pays my rent now. I have to admit that.
With the little game time I do have these days, I have been trying to play through some of the games I have purchased the last few years and put off like Dragon Quest VI and currently Etrian Odyssey Untold. And it has been a lot of fun to talk about current game stuff with the guys at Player One Podcast. Nice to have some place to campaign for the smaller New 3DS coming to the United States. How the hell is it not offered on Nintendo.com at least? It makes not sen… Not the time or place for that discussion…
I do still want to do shows on Chrono Trigger, Super Metroid, Thunder Force III, Shinobi, a few Saturn games, and some N64 stuff, but again, the drive isn’t there.
A part of me feels like that 60+ episodes I have produced has said what I wanted to say with the show. I got to meet some great people in and out of the industry, and promote my belief that these shows shouldn’t be a pessimistic negativity fest like some of the games media today.
With all that being said, episodes may pop up here and there. I am still dead set on doing two movie episodes for the show for fun with “Flight of the Navigator” and “Hackers” (which has it’s 20th anniversary next week!). Also last night I got an email from friend of the show Mike Mika to talk about some cool stuff going on with him including the Mega Man Legacy Collection.
I really want to say don’t expect regular episodes, but keep that podcast subscription active because you may get surprised with a new episode in your download queue.
Thank you so much for everyone that has supported the show, especially the ones supporting the show through Patreon and/or being vocal on Twitter/NeoGAF/Etc.
