Up until about April last year, I’d boot up Skype and do a video call with then Auckland-based radio announcer Glenn Williams and we’d talk video games. Lots and lots of video games. I think we first started doing the Tuesday segment about 2009 – my very first chat to Glenn was actually while I was standing in an exhibition hall at the Los Angeles Convention Centre during E3. I remember my phone almost running out of battery.
Anyway, mid-last year Glenn and his partner decided to up and leave New Zealand for London and the radio segments stopped. It wasn’t long before I actually missed doing the segments with Glenn and it actually felt like something was missing every Tuesday – so when Glenn contacted me in early December saying he was going to do a New Year round-up with all his guests that would run in early 2013 I jumped at the chance.
So, in early December I again booted up Skype (this time just audio, not video) and over the course of an hour or so we recorded four or five 10-minute or so segments on video game-related stuff to look forward to in 2013 (as well as one which rounded up some of the highlights of 2012). They were played on Radio Live recently but as I was on holiday and didn’t have a lot of time to listen to the radio I missed pretty much off all of them – but Glenn has come to the rescue and uploaded all of his recordings to Mix Cloud.
Have a listen and let me know what you think.
