So I grabbed the newest No Quarter podcast as I was heading out the door to work this morning and listened to it as soon as I got settled in at work. And sure enough I got some of my feedback mentioned, which made my whole day. It doesn't really take very much to please me. That and a Pats win during football season is all I ask for.
I figured they wouldn't mention all of it -- it was a LONG e-mail -- but the fact they touched on some points pleased me to no end, and I'll be curious to see what kind of feedback they get on the topics.
I also was surprised when Mike mentioned 'on the air' that they had seen my original post from last week. We're being spied on here, people! Hide your girls, hide your booze, and most importantly hide your games!
I'll send in some more feedback to them when they do a arcade game I actually know instead of all the obscure stuff.
I did want to mention something here though, for all the world to see, for folks who may listen to both No Quarter and Ferg's 2600 Game By Game Podcast (as I do, and I'm sure a lot of folks do). There ARE a few parts of the feedback that I sent to both podcasts. It wasn't planned that way, it just happened. I sat down and wrote the e-mail to No Quarter first, doing it on Word as I'm having a e-mail editing issue right now. It was MUCH longer then the e-mail that Ferg got. Let's say just say it came out in the order of about six pages. But when I finished that and sent it off and started working on the e-mail for Ferg, and I started doing the intro section, the thought hit me 'why should I retype the intro again?' so I just used that for Ferg's e-mail as well. And then I thought a couple of points that I mentioned to the No Quarter guys would be interesting to send to Ferg as well, so I did. I hope no one here minds that, and I espeicly hope that neither No Quarter or Ferg have a major issue with it also. Most of the e-mails they got were unique -- I just thought they would have different takes on a couple of my main points, and they did. I didn't think about it perhaps being a breech of etiquite until later, so if I did miff someone, it wasn't on purpose.
In hindsight, I probably didn't need the intro in Ferg's e-mail, cause I didn't know he was on AtariAge. Oops.
Let's just put it this way -- Ferg read the entire e-mail that I sent him 'on the air' in his last podcast, and that was about ten minutes. The No Quarter guys were right in saying they only touched on about a quarter of my e-mail to them.
Keep up all the great work, guys -- and that goes to both podcasts.
Oh, Ferg -- the other podcast that I couldn't recall that I had heard you mentioned on last week was the first episode of Two Guys and a NES, where they talked about Super Mario Brothers. Like I said, your name gets around.
