I guess it was okay. But, meh, I had a hard time listening to Josh. Wasn’t exactly spectacular.
I hope to read an issue of it again one day =)
Thank you for the kind words, True Valhalla. Ending the Quarterly was not something I expected, or wanted, to do, and it’s nice to know that you and others found some value within its pages.
This was at least fairly professional, and overall it was not painful to listen to, but I have to disagree on some of your review points, particularly on the music, which I think you unjustly criticised. You could have also gone deeper into the overarching theme, and perhaps even flashed some of the great artwork. I also disagree with your comments on the graphics (in some aspects) — I think they definitely achieved what they intended to, and the result is beautiful and unique.
One final criticism, the gray texture headings were terrible xD Even straight white text would have been an improvement.
So, overall, it was a good length, well presented, had a nice intro, and would be the 2nd piece of GM media I’d come back to hear more on (Russel’s Quarterly being first) — consumable and neat.
For our next review we have got our 3D graphic deigner to make some stars for the show instead of text. I will also look into changing the other text.
It was alright. I prefer longer episodes. ^^
Why do you think I kept it short?
A lot of people didn’t.
Haha, Phil had intended to not post about this till later so that his 10 years of Game Making article could get noticed 😛
I hope users enjoy 🙂
