    We are just doing audio. The audio quality was actually really good from what we tested out last Tuesday. We're hoping to make some progress again this week to make something a bit more clean.

    I doubt that I will be making it on Tuesday. St. Pat's is one of the holidays that I celebrate pretty hard. :D

    Me as well even though I'm still in my 20's. Drank enough in my past for 2 lifetimes so I'm allset with it now lol

    How exactly are you guys communicating with eachother though? I know you're recording your own audio and then combining the tracks after wards but what do you use to talk to eachother? Skype? Google Plus?

    Also how long do you guys talk for?

    My hard celebration was 2 pints of beer at lunch with some soup. I went home, finished The Order: 1886, slept as Final Fantasy XV Episode Duscae downloaded, and then woke up to play through FFXVED. It was a holy day at this house. :D

    We talk over PlayStation Chat on PS4 or PSVita. It's actually really smooth with no delay.

    So far we have been clocking about 30 minutes an episode although I imagine once we get more organized an hour or hour and a half will be more likely.

    Hey guys, sorry haven't really been around. Stephen, I messaged you on PSN asking for your email.

    I'll be free this tuesday. I'll have to take a break from Bloodborne but I can manage. I'm guessing I won't be alone on that one though.

    Also, has the first podcast been posted anywhere yet?

    The first podcast was kind of a bust because Brian's audio was too low but it was still a lot of fun. The second is complete but the quality still isn't where is needs to be. I think what I will do is send it to those involved as more of a learning tool.

    I have to stress that I am learning too. We're all having fun but this won't be professional grade off the bat. Since I represent PSLS, I would like our work to be more presentable before we post it online.

    That said, we've come a long way! I'll be available again tomorrow night (Tues) between 6-8. Hope to see everyone online!

    Yup, I'll be around at 7 tomorrow, and I know my audio quality wasn't great. I have an idea for changing things up a little bit tomorrow (on my own part) so we will see how it goes.

    Making the words audible was a huge leap forward last week! :p

    Let's keep improving!

    Well if you'd like I can try to work my magic with the audio though there are limitations. Even I won't have the best recording quality. I have a bunch of microphones but they all use XLR and I have no real way of getting them into my PC so I'm stuck using a turtle beach headset for now.

    I just wanted to write out some possible topics

    Always online games

    The latest PS4 firmware update (Update 2.5)

    What features would you like to see the most on future updates

    Used games and rentals. How they relate to online passes

    The most recent Playstation exclusive (ex. Bloodborne)

    How important are graphics?

    Video game reviews (what do you think about them, how do you use them, etc.)

    Trophies that you're most proud of

    Your game collection (maybe just describe the size and for what systems because if we tried naming all of ours it would take hours I'm sure)

    Do you trade in games or collect and why?

    Favorite PS4 games so far

    Most anticipated PS4 games

    Are games like Beyond Two Souls or Walking Dead really games? and do you enjoy them?

    Each of our gaming history (how we started, how it has evolved for us over the years)

    Scenario- if you only could play 2 games for the rest of your life, what would they be and why

    Scenario- If you could only own one console, which would your 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th choice be out of PS4, Xbone, PC, Wii U

    Games you've replayed multiple times and why

    Favorite multiplayer games ever

    Top 10 of last gen

    Favorite PS1, PS2, PS3, PSP, PS Vita, and PS4 games

    Your stance on letting kids play Mature rated games

    Favorite games to look at (art style, graphics, or both) and games with best sound design

    I'll add more in the future too

    That was actually the very first topic we did, but we can always revisit it later in the year. I think between me, Joe and Stephen, it was MGSV and Until Dawn, so after they come out we can pick new games =p

    I've also thought of:

    Most overrated games

    Most underrated games

    Favorite games per platform

    Some non Playstation episodes ( I know, blasphemy! But I also love Nintendo )

    Should Sony make first party figures a la amiibo / Disney Infinity

    IPs we wish would make a comeback

    Postmortem on games we've played 2-4 weeks after release ( Bigger games like Bloodborne, Uncharted, etc)

    My thought process in the very beginning of wanting to do this was to avoid doing news related podcasts, since there are a lot of those out there already. Hell, this is a PSLS unofficial podcast, but we still don't want to compete with Bad Gamers. There will inevitably be big news stories that almost require reactions, like E3, but again this is more tuned for what we, outside of the industry, want to talk about. So most of your topics are really great and things that I bet would make for great conversations. I can spend a long time talking about my gaming history, the only problem is I'm not sure anyone cares enough to listen to it for more than 10 minutes haha

    Great suggestions guys! We can definitely use those in upcoming episodes. Did everyone send me audio from the most recent episode?
