Squatchcast Season 2 Begins!


It's been a long time, hasn't it? The last podcast we recorded took place when Mass Effect 2 was still new. We certainly have a lot to catch up on.

We've used the last year to do some hard thinking about what worked and what didn't with our first run of podcasts, and I think we've got some good stuff in store for you this time around.

For our second season, we're going to be producing podcasts on a weekly basis that will be released every Monday morning. Our topics will vary depending on whatever we think is pertinent and interesting at the time, but our plan is to keep things shorter -- think 30 to 45 minutes per episode. We're also recording podcasts in-person this time around to help avoid problems like disjointed conversations and desynchronized audio stems.

This first episode has the three of us discussing preliminary information on the two major upcoming handheld game systems, Nintendo's 3DS and Sony's NGP. We assess what we know about pricing, features and market strategy and weigh the relative strengths and weaknesses of each in the rapidly evolving portable gaming marketplace. After all, you have to wonder what does a several-hundred dollar dedicated portable gaming system means in the age of Android and iOS.

Enjoy the new podcast, and please let us know what you think of the new format! If you'd rather not leave a comment, feel free to drop me an email (nick at siliconsasquatch dot com) instead. I really want to make this podcast as awesome as it possibly can be, and your input is invaluable.
