The things you need to know for 2013: video games

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.

By the looks of things, three of my recordings made the cut and they’re here and here. The third sessions is still being uploaded. I’ll update this post when it’s been uploaded.

Have a listen and let me know what you think.
