Awesome first effort. Looking forward to more of these.
I got to say great job, looking forward to more of these as well.
I didnt think there could be a poor mans mmo report but here we are. Couple of things
Why is there a samsung logo on the fake grean screen TV?
Quality boom mic/wirless shirt mic and noise foam stuff...get some.
MMO news is not serious buiseness try to be a little more light hearted.
Get a wrighter?That or peer review the script with the rest of the staff.
[mod edit -- was this really necesssary? come on now]
I think for a first attempt it was pretty good. It does exactly what it should: sum up what happened over the past week in the 'MMORPG world".
What a shame about 38 Studios. It wasn't even a month or two ago that I had read a post from Curt - how he has invested 40 million of his own money to make this game.
Do it shirtless next time? ;D
But seriously. Shirtless.
Yes, very impressive for your first episode.
Congratulations for your fist video cast! Good Job!
Enjoyed it, good job.
There was a tiny awkward feeling in it, but overall pretty good. I would advice not to "try so hard" if you know what i mean, just be yourself. I know it's damn hard to be one self with a camera on for some weird stupid reason. But i'd rather take no jokes than some dry forced jokes.
Keep it up!
god, you cant please some people. well, I enjoyed the hell out of it. Please make it a part of your weekly routine. Stick with it.
Nice first show, it was an interesting listen :)
About the red RiFT cloak, it's there because cloaks are one of the most asked for items in rift, so this is conformation they are adding a cloak slot in the expansion.
I think the whole cryptic box is brilliant and wish more mmo companies would do things like this.
Trion really do rock.
Great stuff m8, I enjoyed this and looking forward to more episodes. :o)
Glad to hear about the Rift expansion. I thought they might be up to something, but just had no idea what, or how, or when. Hope to hear more on that soon.
By the way, great first show. Keep it up!
Also, just so you can look awesome, try wearing a green t-shirt next time, so you can pretend to be a living MMO-person... or something.
Also forgot to add the most important thing. Give away free s!#@ to people that tweet about you. Least thats what Dtoid does to nausiam.
I enjoyed this first weekly video report and I am looking forward to the coming weeks.
This was suprising good. You have great camera presence Bill. when G4 comes calling, make sure they bring a suitcase full of money as well.
I liked it. Thankyou. Keep up with the one liners :)
Problem is .. bad pugs do get me down :(
Thanks! That was good. Will be following.
Yeah the Rift thing...brilliant. The cloak is because players are asking for them like the above poster stated. Hm the keys I'm going to say more zones and the golden key seems to be a key to the city type thing.
I'm not in rift atm. But its my favorite MMO with the exception of the Beta'd GW2. So I'll probably bounce back and forth keeping Rift as my main and GW2 as one I can slowly progress in.
As for the podcast? I like it, for a first time you did really well. You had 2 outtros but that's probably me just being nitpicky. I'm sure you will come into your own style so its all good.
Absolutely enjoyed this. I'm very said to hear the amazing team that created one of my new favorite games (KoA:R) was all layed off. Really sucks when that happens. And i'm not supprised about Bioware/EA layoffs. They have been getting hit hard lately =\
Great work on the video though, It was well done for a first episode. But, like Ciid said, maybe get some new equipment or set things up differently. I heard some echoing. Nice use of a green screen though =)
Keep them coming !
My only complaint is the glasses. To each their own.
Wll done Bill, loved the new addition, and look forward to more! Congrats to all the people that put time and effort into tthis if this was your first time producing one of these. Thanks to all.
Why does he sound like he's inside a peanut butter jar.
pls dont stand there like a robot. I can see you were nervous your first time but next time be more relaxed .
Good job mate, keep it up.
FrodoFragins: "My only complaint is the glasses. To each their own."
Well, bill, stop having eye sight issues and read the damn ipad... *slap* you're not reading enough! Glasses are for sissies!
Evan you did an amazing job making Bill's spare room look like the MMO command center.
Loved it, waiting for the next one. Congratulations!
I really enjoyed this video, short and good
Buy a new Mic and attach it to your shirt, that way you don't sound like your reporting from a glass Jar.
It stinks that 38 Studio and Big Huge Games had too lay off there staff but I trully hope they can both get back on there feet because I really dont think that one bad selling game should be there downfall.
Was Pokket hiding in the room during the first segment or was that just audio from the Diablo 3 clip? :)
Nice first showing. Hope to see more to come.
Good job. Instead of announcing for the win ftw is just fine. We aren't that slow to figure it out. ;)
Very good job Bill. Especially considering this is the first time you are doing this.
But ... where is ma main man MikeB? Put him on a chair behind you next time. Even if only his head reaches above the desk that is fine. He doesn't need to say anything if he really doesn't want to.
Suggestion: Add a little item about current mmorpg.com forum trends. "The community has been up in arms this week about *herpa derpa insert community issue with game here*." etc.
Truth or dare question: How many takes did you guys get before you settled on this one? :))
Nice first vid!
As others have mentioned, the sound could be improved a little, I'm sure you will continue to work on that.
Other than that the only thing that botherd me a little bit is the very cool chrome looking MMORPG logo above the "TV" was cut off at the top.
Keep these coming!!
Haha, ok. I appreciate the honesty :)
Must have been quite the effort in frustration to do it without a prompter ^_^
Don't delete any wrong takes! We want to see a blooper vid at the end of the year.
Not bad for a first attempt. Just the sound, that really needs to be improved uppon. The rest isn't bad at all.
Great first episode! Can't wait to see what's coming next!
Excellent work team. You guys rock ;-)
Nice. I love this idea, and you did a great job.
I felt it was better than the MMO Report.
More news less snide jokes.
Nice first episode. A small hint from a Media Designer: Try to use a LAvalier Microphone or at least a directional Microphone mor in range of your head. Your voice wont be that much far away. Other than that: Good job! :-) Greetings from Germany! Lars Z. :-)
Very well done podcast, im surprised that i liked it, ill be
following this ;)
The mic. You need to get a more appropriate mic for the voice. There are lapel microphones that go from $50 to $100 that would increase the quality of this immensly.
Awesome job! the corny jokes got a giggle here and there it did its job lol. Cant wait for the next one.
I enjoyed it. Good first run. Bill is one of my favorites here. I have to agree with some of the others, a better mic will go a long way.
Good start with the inaugural Pod Cast. It's about time.
Please invest in a lapel mic though.
It's fine for the first time. Would have preferred a 5 minute cap on the length as you ramble a bit.
As for the layoffs at Bioware, maybe mention that it did lose 400,000 subs prior to the announcement of the layoffs? Just saying there were layoffs makes it sound heartless, but there is a business side to the story.
Unfortunantly recently MMORPG.com had been doing more vidoes and such and they are VERY low quality. Massively has much higher quality videos.
You should really think about geting better equipment.
Whoa, great :D
You just got another weekly watcher, i enjoyed that mutch ^^
Thinks to improve are the sound.
You want use a micro, you studio sounds a lot mid-frequency, a mircophone ... you know :)
Then you also could do things like a drop-in report, blending over for a story, you know, like in the news.
I noticed, you made that "first take".
Great job on that, but a hard task, no idea how often you had to practise it until you got the final take, but drop-in reports would let you cut the scenes so you dont have to talk 10 minutes nonstop, even if you did a great job on that, thumbs up ^^
Looking forward, as you say, we have a lot of interesting stuff to talk about !
Awesome inaugural episode! Way to go!
I hated it!!!!........Just kidding, that was pretty good actually. Looking forward to more.
good job Bill, I enjoyed it, was too the point, and stacked with info
Nice. It sounded like it was recorded in a bathroom though.
quality vid. i enjoyed it and shall watch more.
some people in my mind are way too harsh. theres ome proper spiteful stuff on here
I am not a fan of Bill Murphy pr most pf the articles andpodcasts here at MMORPG. Com but his news reecap was well done. What imrpessed me the most was the quality fo the production values. It was just a well done video. Thebig screen along with 3 screens in the back ground was very welldone. The switching of the videos to seamlessly shift as the topic was switched was very well done.
Obviously there was a lot of effort and money put into this video. While I generally will dispute the idea of MMORPG.Com offering anything resembling actual news and usefull information as generally their only purpose is hyping games for page hits regardless of the effect on the genre as a whole. I will refrain from making that argument here. The video was well done and the people that made ti deserve a pat on the back.
cant watch till you shave.
I enjoyed this 1st effort, well done. The only thing I'm confused about is the constant obsessing over Diablo 3, which, it has to be said, is not an MMORPG.
Can we get the site back on track and deal with MMORPG's now?
First up the 38 studios news is extremely terrible,i also wish those people good luck ,the yhad a good vision.
Kind of sad ,imo the two best efforts for game design both fell short because of money,first Vanguard,now copernicus.Good news there is still one last hope for delivering rather than talk>>Archeage...fingers crossed.
Lastly ,don't ridicule me for being skeptical but I hope this wasn't anotehr attempt to find reason to further hype up the adverts ,example Trion [again] ??gets more talk than any game i have ever seen talked about on MMORPG.com.
PLEASE ..keep it REAL.
Forgot to give soem credit here,YES it was a very good effort here.Originally i was like ,i don't think i remeber anything by Mr.Murphy,then i read a post saying good first attempt,so i guess it is his first...VERY good job.
I am not making it up by saying the best so far i have seen here,but i'll repeat ...please keep it REAL fans here anticipate good articles/videos and rely on good morals from MMORPG.
Bill, Your auto-que reading is top notch :)
Also, there was a gnarly echo...maybe wana look into canceling that out?
This is a terrific idea, I will certainly watch more of these. Though I do agree spending a few £ or I guess $ for you, on a new mic would be appreciated.
Great First Show. Hope too see more of these
Nice job will be looking forward to future episodes.
Totally enjoyed the first installment of MMOFTW. Good Job!
Hope to see more of these mates. Cheers!
Very fun first vid and a nice addition to MMORPG.com
Well done, Bill!
Talk with your hands less and don't be afraid to interject that humor I see in some of your reviews and forum posts. You're talking to fellow gamers and friends, not forecasting the weather ;3 Otherwise great first effort and nice premise, it's about time MMORPG.com got into making videos. A weekly round-up of MMO news would be smashing.
Well done, thanks!
Here's to many more.
Good job Bill. Keep them coming.
I liked it. Nice work.
I loved everything about it, but the sound. It sounded like you were inside of a cardboard box. I don't know if there is maybe some way to improve on that a little before the next video, but I would look into it. I could really use another MMO weekly update, so keep up the good work!
Not bad, sound was pretty bad though.
Also, like others noted you were a little stiff. Loosen up a bit and don't take it so seriously. You really gotta almost act like you're making fun of serious news shows to make it work.
good job !
Great attempt on? your first video, really like the setup you got here :] Only thing i would like to see, or rather hear, is some soft beats or like a techno'ish music in the background. Its makes it more, relaxing on the ears? (if you know what i mean).
Kinda like the Dtoid show have.
All I ever hear in the MMO community and this site is how many copies a company has sold and how much money they have made. Seriously? Is that all you care about?
As a gamer I'm intrested in seeing which games offer what. I couldn't care less if Blizzard sold a billion copies of Diablo 3. So what? That doesn't mean it was a great game. And why would I care that Bioware/EA have laid off a bunch of it's workers? is that really a surprise? SWTOR was the industrys biggest waste of money. All that money could of gone to a better cause like maybe helping people who really needed it??
For once I'de like to see something on this site and in the community worth talking about. Who gives 2 shits about how much money a company is making. You miles well get down on you're knee's and be licking their boots for being Developers that only care about money and couldn't give 2 shits about you. All this brown nosing, and talk about how great the companys are and how wonderful it is that they are all fat billionairs is starting to piss me off. Lets maybe talk about hmmm.. maybe something like that has too do with us as gamers?
Seriously, it's stupid.
No wonder why MMO's are crap now a days because thats all you guys ever talk about.
How come I orignally read this as: MMO - WTF?
Really good video, keep this sorta thing up!
Great 1st effort. How I'd improve it:
-Add musical opening with a logo full screen at the start.
-Have a neutral music playing real low throughout the entire video.
-When you talk about each game, the game should be full screen for abit while you talk, that will give you time "off camera" too, which will be more professional.
-Some sound issues, but it's ok.
5:02 Captain America reference! Awesome!
Very nice! Looking foreward to see more episodes. But dude, pls, get yourself a microphone, so it doesn't sound like you recorded it in your own livingroom. But then, maybe it was ... naaa ;)
How to look like an idiot in a webcast... talk about Cuba implying Fidel Castro is the leader. Stick to video games, the real world is too fast for your guys.
Great Job! Looking forward to watching many more to come.
Nice, i can read and listen now.
Good stuff! Enjoyed the hell out of it. Keep 'em comin'!
Good job guys!
Nice feature and BTW 101 ;)
Best luck to the people let go.
@Bill Murphy: Okay kudos for the adlibbing because, yeah, reading from solely a prompter just doesn't come off as genuine *waves to all politicians*
Also really great production value from this site man I don't think i've been this sucked into and interested in the content of a site since facebook.
"don't let a bad pug get you down*....Love this!
To get that hollow sound out of the room, you may want to try a clip on mic , and then run it through a compressor and preamp into the recorders input. You can also get directional boon mic that can be set over you that would help to. With this kind of set up, using a directional mic with a filter will give you that professional sound.
It was nice, technical issues aside, I will look forward to more of these.
I thought the video was good. I love shows like this.
That was awesome =-) Keep them coming.
Was going to sub you on youtube but it gives me everything mmorpg.com put out and thats way to many vidoes flooding my home page and most I dont care about. I would like to see your show have its own channel.
Really good stuff! MMOAttack has been doing videos like this for a while now, but for some reason they do more of a general game report not just mmo's . I like what you guys have done with this, may need a little work but in time it will be cool.
Great job, you killed it!
@mmoDAD yeah i was shocked to here that as well, its crazy how fast 40 mill goes. Some of these games make big money but i'm starting to think more and more of them struggle to make it work.
rehearse less next time, it will sound more natural..
To much echo in the audio.
Nice work, however, the part about Rift going the route of Dark Age of Camelot is less accurate than saying that Trion was just looking at what Secret World, GW2, etc., had to offer with three factions and thought they would do a simplified version. The races and classes are the same between the 2 factions (now mixed up into 3). Dark Age had 44 classes and 24 races with three unique factions. Nothing yet compares to that.
Why is there a women talking in the background i was wtf someones phone call coming through my speakers.
Kudos on a job well done. I look forward to more of these.
