Better late than never some might say but these podcasts are disgustingly late. Hopefully these will be the last items to ever be massively delayed on this site again. There will be a bunch of new content popping up on the site this weekend as the site once again returns to normal. Starting today, all the normal features are back and there will be daily updates (mostly) on a regular basis everyday.

I finally got my new audio equipment in so the podcast quality starting with the Day 2 Recap should be much better (at least when it’s me on the mic.). I re-recorded the Day 2 Recap so I could try out the new equipment. I still have some tinkering to do but it still sounds great. In fact, the quality is so good that I was able to finalize the recording at 64kbps instead of 128 to save on space and there doesn’t seem to be any degradation of quality. If you notice any problems or have some suggestions on how I can improve the audio, please leave me a comment below or send me an e-mail at jgore@madnessbrewing.com

Thanks again to Chris Karpyszyn and Steve Wood for helping out with the Day 1 recap. If you’re interested in Chris’s ramblings, head over to his site at www.chriskarypszyn.com.

BREAKING NEWS PODCAST: Wii 2 Announcement – Reaction and Speculation

 BREAKING NEWS PODCAST – Wii 2 Announcement – Reaction and Speculation
<20 mins (18.2 MB)>    ^ Right click to save ^

Nintendo has finally made it official and announced the successor to the Wii; something that the industry analysts have been predicting since 2008. Chris Karpyszyn and I discuss what this means for Nintendo and whether or not they can stop losing market share to the other companies. We also talk about the Playstation Network outage that doesn’t appear to be ending anytime soon.

Chris and I will be back again on Thursday to discuss this further as more news leaks as well as other items in the world of gaming including Portal 2 and the first month of the Nintendo 3DS. The Weekly Movie Podcast will also be released sometime tomorrow.

These breaking news podcasts are going to be a new feature of the site when major news goes down in the subject areas that are covered in this site (for example, Montreal and Canadian news, film, and gaming). If you have any questions or comments about the podcast, send them to jgore@madnessbrewing.com. I know there was an issue with my audio side as it sounds more like AM quality than FM quality but I think it’s because I deleted my master by mistake and had to take the audio from the Skype conversation between me and Chris instead.
