What is it with those expected on GMLive not turning up? Dan Eggers (as usual) was absent yet for some reason the hosts were still expecting him to turn up along with last weeks co-host Robin Monks.
It was understandable therefore that the show didn’t start off particularly strongly with many topics briefly skipped over in the first half hour of the show before a break was taken for music. Afterwards the show continued on a stronger note when a representative from the Game Maker Community Game (monocledsardine) came on to speak about the progress of their project so far. Although I haven’t been following the GMCG I still found this by far the most interesting feature today as he took questions from callers and those left in the chat.
Brian Fetcher made a few short appearances throughout the show but as usual the main presenters were Joshua Pedroza and producer Jonathan Martin.
Despite the rather poor presentation of content towards the beginning of the show the stream was much smoother than a fortnight ago when there were several inexplicable pauses without speech or music. The end of the show, as always, was full of pauses as people ran out of things to say and for a while no one took charge of closing the show.
The on page listener counter logged a maximum of 15 listeners throughout the duration of the one and a half hour broadcast.
