I really wanted to give it 5 stars
Just to star this review off, wow. Simply, wow. Throughout this podcast I couldn't stop myself from falling into fits of laughter (which earned me several weird looks from those around me). I loved the witty banter and the outrageously large amount of nerd humor contained. Plus, the background music was perfect; just interesting enough to be good, but not detracting from the voices.
That being said, it’s not perfect. I'll break it down into what's bad and what (I think) could be added.
~ The voices seemed slightly tinny and the volume was uneven across voices. This caused me to keep a thumb on the volume to adjust it so I didn't blow my ears out. How you could maybe fix this is by having everyone record their own voices and mesh it together instead of (what sounds like) one person recording essentially a Skype call.
~ A little more vocal organization - Many times during the podcast I noticed you all trying to talk at once and it just doesn't sound good. How you can fix that is by possibly setting up a little code of talking where you would work out what to do if two or more people start talking at the same time. Also, you could write a loose script for the episode (this will be elaborated later)
~ Diction could have been slightly better... but that's probably my fault for having poor word recognition in my ears :(
What could be added:
~Some form of user contribution. I'll leave that for you to figure out.
~A loose script to keep everything both on track and organized. Chaos in a podcast is never a good thing and I've seen far too many good podcasts fail to take off because they simply don't stay on topic or they get lost in each other’s voices.
~Sections! Maybe have a weekly "what I did this week" or "questions from listeners" section to provide a little backbone to the hilarious conversations.
All in all, I really wanted to give this podcast a 5 star review, but you're just not there yet. Don't let this be a deterrent because most great podcasts start off with several cons and through a few episodes I'm sure you'll get this ironed out.
Also, Reno, get back to Dimensional Balance :D
Also also, top 3 - 1)Typhlosion 2)Flygon (eye shields :P) 3)Eeveelutions (Jolteon and Espeon at the top though)
You're podcast is awesome! I came across you guys by accident, and I must say, I'm enjoying what you have so far! I'm listening to episode 11 as I write this, and I can't help but notice how much you guys have changed! In your debut episode, you guys were rather shy and unorganized, but now I feel like I'm listening to guys who have been doing this all they're lives!
And on the subject of Brawl -Witch you guys seem to enjoy talking about as much as I love hearing it,- I can't help but notice, when you guys talk about OP characters, you don't mention Kirby! I've gotten 15+ enemies defeated in Cruel Brawl with the little dude!
I kinda strayed off topic there, didn't I? Anyway, I'll try to spread the word about you guys however and wherever I can!
