IGN Boards Modcast: Episode 7 – misdreavus79 and our first ever contest!

July 3, 2008

Sorry for the delay!

 

With the holiday week this week (Canada Day and July 4th coming up!), getting the IGN Boards Modcast recorded proved difficult! Co-hosts daviddoel and luisoscarb are both away this week, leaving it to lone host, terror_beast to try and hold down the fort tongue Thankfully, -Sparky– is back once again and our special guest this week, misdreavus79 rounds out the cast!

 

misdreavus79 fills us in on life at the Pokemon boards, what it’s like to have to stick around near a college after graduating and why he thinks Pokemon is sure to die at some point!

 

We’ve got plenty of shout-outs! Many thanks to all of our listeners and people good enough to leave comments! We also tackle the LCD vs. Plasma debate in this week’s edition of “TerrorBeast’s Guide to Getting a Really Great Home Theatre” and we discuss the FCC’s move to change regulation on Product Placement in TV programs.

 

Episode 7 also brings us the first ever Modcast Contest Give Away!

IGN Boards Modcast: Episode 6 – Our Best Ever, ‘Cause FuzzDaCat is Here!

June 26, 2008

“Oh Lord, it’s a Nerd Party!”

Newly minted co-host, luisoscarb is away this week, so regular co-hosts, terror_beast and daviddoel strike up conversation with returning guest, -Sparky– and our awesome new guest this week, FuzzDaCat !

A lot of you will know FuzzDaCat since she is a regular visitor/mod to the Vesti! But what you might not know about are the adventures of FuzzDaCat and -Sparky– together, which apparently involve broken windows, chips and cola for breakfast and a shower scene! shock

We have a whole smattering of topics this week: Metal Gear Solid 4, broken consoles, “TerrorBeast’s Guide to Getting a Really Great Home Theatre” delves briefly into surge protectors and HDMI, we tackle the iPhone coming to Canada and our feature round table is all about…

The Future…

And what’s to come in gaming and movie theatres!

Thanks for listening! And we’ll be back next week!

Hi everyone! This week’s IGN Boards Modcast is another two-parter! Newly minted co-host luisoscarb is joined by terror_beast and our first guest this week, OldManLink! We get the details on IGN’s Icon Board, where OldManLink is one of the most active members, bringing you new submission threads for those wonderful little GIF images that make each of our posts unique grin He is also our first guest we’ve had on the Modcast who is living in Sweden! But sadly, no thick Swedish accent – bork bork bork! tongue

The second half of the show is a one-on-one interview. terror_beast interviews Super Smash Bros. World Site Manager and Mod extraordinaire, -Sparky–! We talk all about Super Smash Bros. World – your best resource for all things Smash Bros.! We also find out the secret to juggling modding, working a day job, volunteering AND working for IGN!

“TerrorBeast’s Guide to Getting a Really Great Home Theatre” is all about the new, Blu-ray HD-Audio formats this week and why the PS3 is your best choice for a Blu-ray player grin

Enjoy! And we’ll be back next week!

IGN Boards Modcast: Episode 3 – enter luisoscarb and The Ladies’ Man!

June 26, 2008

Today, we welcome luisoscarb to Episode 3 of the IGN Boards Modcast! Well traveled, well educated and originally hailing from Paraguay, Luis not only manages to out host the hosts, but also introduces us to “The Ladies’ Man” – as daviddoel will be known from now on grin

Luis tells us what it’s like to be a stereotypical Paraguayan and how he puts up living in a straw hut. Sounds nice compared to the igloos that David and I must endure up here in Canada grin

Also, terror_beast is now supposedly lead host – but we’ll see how well that goes tongue We do have part 3 of “TerrorBeast’s Guide to Getting a Really Great Home Theatre” though and this marks the beginning of the adventure that is home theatre audio! We start today with some of the raw basics and a couple of recommendations if you just want a “quick fix” right away wink

Enjoy Episode 3 and we’ll be back next week!

We also continue “TerrorBeast’s Guide to Getting a Really Great Home Theatre” as I offer up some quick pointers on the most important aspects of TVs and displays and how to pick out a good one!

Part 2 picks up as we are joined by kleck64! We get to hear all about what life is like on the DVD Community Board and why you might want to come check out that particular board if you haven’t posted there before (hint: it involves coloured screen names and presents grin )

Our lead host, daviddoel, is busy this week, so it’s up to me, terror_beast, to handle the hosting duties happy

IGN Boards Modcast: Episode 1

June 26, 2008

Hello! We are here to announce a new podcast that we will have for you every week (usually around Sunday night or Monday), the IGN Boards Modcast. As the name implies, the podcast is recorded and edited by IGN Mods, discussing topics that range from world issues to what’s on the vesti.

We will constantly be changing and reworking aspects of the show and we would like you, the community, to be as much a part of that as possible. Any and all questions/comments/suggestions are welcome, and you may either leave a comment on the blog or send an email to ignmodcast@gmail.com (be sure to include your username in the email). We will try to respond to everyone and your question could end up on the air.

So without delaying it any further, today’s show is hosted by daviddoel (me), and terror_beast. This episode’s segments include:

* Introduction to the show

* What’s on the Vesti?

* Weekly gaming

* TerrorBeast’s Guide to Getting a Really Great Home Theatre (Part 1)

* Interview with a Mod

daviddoel and terror_beast will be regular hosts on the show and we’ll try to get as many different mods on as possible to join us.

You can download the first episode here:

IGN Boards Modcast – Episode 1
