#17 – Gamer Lounge Episode – E3 and More!

8 06 2009

It has been FOREVER since we’ve put out a new episode, but now we finally did.  Considering the fact that tonight’s episode went so well, the chances of us staying consistent are really good now.  Since we had 6 months worth of stuff to cover, this was an extra long show. Topics included E3, UP, and pretty much everything else that’s in the below mountain of tags. At a little over an hour and a half, the show should keep you busy until next Sunday!  🙂

Still Alive And…Something Else

26 05 2009

Yes folks, I did not die.  I am still here, and it is nice to see that many of you listeners/readers are still hanging around here as well.  For those of you that don’t check out the site (not you), I made a little .MP3 saying that I’m still around.  You can here the slightly better recording quality the mixer/new mic offers as well.

Not bad, eh?

While I’m at it, I might as well update the Casual WoW listners as well.  I know what you’re thinking, “Sure, he makes an .MP3 for the GL but not for us CW listeners.”  Well folks, the truth is I can’t.  Maybe all that complaining I did jinxed it or something, but not a single podcaster can upload any more files to Mypodcast.  And, chances are, I might actually lose all of the files I had uploaded.  Thank god for Mevio!

Here’s a little extra tidbit that wasn’t put into the feed though.  I wanted to mess around with recording some “songs” I had came up with, and this was the result.  Not sure if I’ll add many more of these, but keep your eyes peeled.

Not quite your Justin Timberlake, but hey, I’m free!

New episodes up soon…and this time I mean it…really, I do.





Why WoW Players Should Switch to WAR

5 10 2008

This is a great article to read if you’re even a teensy bit interested in Warhammer Online.

I really want to give this game a try, but as of yet I have not.  Has anyone out there played it that can tell me their thoughts?





#14 – Gamer Lounge Episode – Bridge Over Troubled Water

29 09 2008

My sister and I temporarily take the reigns on this episode and talk about the new iPods, Chuck, Fracture, Warhammer Online, House, CSI Miami, and Larry Bear.   Also, a new hard drive, Apple microphone and how iTunes makes me an honest man.

#13 – Gamer Lounge Episode – Touchy Apprentices

23 09 2008

It’s finally here!  A new episode featuring both Larry and I!  If I do say so myself, this is our best episode yet.  We wrote out some notes to follow during the show, things flow smoothly, and there were no sound hiccups that I could find.

Some topics are Spore: Origins and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed for the iPod touch/iPhone, free MMO subscription models, Diablo 3 before Starcraft 2, Wrath of the Lich King release date, Warhammer Online, Smallville, Marble Blast Ultra, Star Wars TV series, Larry’s new mac, and more!

Did I mention we actually had a little bit of viewer/listener input this time?  I read one of the comments on the blog dealing with the free subscription model.  That could be you next time!  So leave a comment or send an email to gamerloungepodcast@gmail.com





Can WoW Be Free Now?

17 09 2008

I found THIS ARTICLE to be interesting indeed.  The juicy part of this article is that Blizzard announced that over the last five years it has only cost them $200 million in upkeep.  Now at first glance this looks like a lot, but let’s put things into perspective.  5 years is 60 months.  World of Warcraft currently has something like 10 million subscribers (I think it’s actually about 12 mil now) paying about $15 a month.  (They can pay $1 or $2 less if they pay for multiple months at a time)

So this is about $150 million they are making a month.  150*60=9000.  So they’ve made $9 billion dollars from monthly fees alone.  So in other words, only about 1% goes to upkeep.  Interesting.

Update: Let’s look at something else, shall we?  How many subscribers, paying $15 a month, would they need to break even after five years?  Well, $200 million divided by the 60 months is about $3, 333, 333.33.  Not divide this by $15 (for the monthly fee), and you get 222,222.22 which would round to 222,223 subscribers.  They currently have more than 10 million.  I’d say they did Ok.

Now let’s look at one final thing.  What if they took a method like Guild Wars did and only charged for the main game and expansions.  Well, $50*$10 million gives you $500 million.  Then you can pretty much double that considering the Burning Crusade expansion pack.  Again, looks like they would be Ok.  Hmmm…it does seem like the subscription model isn’t necessary.

6 08 2008

It’s episode #10, and, as promised, we were broadcasting live with a chatroom! The cool thing? The people in the chatroom got to listen to the show almost a full day before anyone else. Cool, huh?

But anyway, in this episode we talk about the new Mummy movie, X-Files, Hot Fuzz, Fallout 3, DC Universe Online, Champions Online, Team Fortress 2, a five grand computer, annoying checkpoint saves, and so much more!
