GMKing Podcast #5

I refuse to call this an ‘Audcast’ but thankfully this once-in-a-blue-moon GameMaker discussion has re-branded itself GMCast after taking the name from a rival to GameMaker TV which never materialised. Listen as Robin Monks, Dan Eggers and myself make fools of ourselves while talking about topics such as the best GameMaker games of 2008, the security issues effecting GameMaker and YoYo Games’ instant play and a summary of the events last year. Cringe at the Read more…


4th GMKing Podcast released

GMKing’s sporadically released GameMaker Audcast Podcast is back with a fourth episode. Dan Eggers, a writer here and creator of GMTV, joins Robin Monks for a dicussion on GameMaker news from the past month. Here are the topics covered in the second audcast of 2008: Cage Match: 00:50 Loads of Game Maker mags: 02:18 G3D Effects library: 04:45 GMTV Merge with GMking: 06:26 Game of the Week: 7:27 This is the shortest ever podcast from Read more…


Russell’s Quarterly Podcasts

Certain articles from Tom Russell’s Russell’s Quarterly magazine are now available in podcast form. The podcasts are short – the longest is just 18 minutes – and long articles are broken down into several shows.  Writing on the GMC Russell said of his new distribution method “hopefully this format will allow you to experience [long articles] without causing significant eye strain.” I am not really sure if there is a demand for this because the Read more…


3rd GameMaker Podcast

The third episode of GMking’s Game Maker audcast has been released, nearly a year after the second. The show is, as before, hosted by MarkUp editors Robin Monks and Eyas Sharaiha. Topics discussed include the re-writing of the GameMaker runner in C++ (including “glog” abuse!), the insecurities of GameMaker and the release of the obfuscator. Also covered is the success of the YoYo Games competitions in revealing the extent of GameMaker users talents. It isn’t Read more…


GMKing Podcast to return

GMKing.org are set to relaunch their GameMaker Audcast “soon”. Two episodes of the podcast were released in June last year, however they no longer appear to be online.  The podcasts included discussion of the latest GameMaker developments and community topics.


Game Maker Audcast – Episode 2

I was lucky enough to have been given a preview of the second episode of GMKing’s Game Maker podcast, which this week features Zack (a.k.a darksys92 on the GMC) stepping in for Eyas. The main difference is that this second episode at 19 minutes is about two-thirds the length of the pilot which, I think, makes for an improvement. The encoding has been done at double the bit rate of the pilot episode making for Read more…


Listen to GMking

GMking.org have released a pilot episode of their Audcast, that’s a podcast to you and me. At 31 minutes and 20 seconds it is quite a long pilot, or at least I believe so. The sound quality isn’t great but it was recorded from a Skype conversation over a distance of more than 6,000 miles. I also feel the podcast could have done with being cut down a bit. Listening to half an hour of Read more…
