Gamersyde Diaries: Episode 1

Gamersyde Diaries: Episode 1

It's been a long since we wanted to do our own game show, and with the TGS and other opportunities we felt it was now or never. This first episode is more a pilot than anything else but we still hope that you will like it and you will want to see the next episode in a month. We also hope you wont mind having to read a lot of subtitles, but believe me it's better than listening to us trying to speak in english for 40 minutes . We spent a lot of time working on the subtitles to make sure they were written well in a good enough english, but if there is something wrong with them please let us know. Last thing, be careful with the Splinter Cell: Double Agent review at the end, as it contains some mild spoilers. You've been warned ! We are eagerly waiting for your comments.

Update: We are aware that the whole "smoking" thing was a bad idea, and we won't do it again in the future. There is no need for more comments about that :)

Just downloading it now.... but had to say it sounds like a good idea! ;)

Edited to Add:

Watched it for a bit... but then skipped through most of it.. sorry!

It's a great idea, and probably will be a hit with your home crowd, but I guess most of us english speakers will find the subtitles a little tedious.

What the...? didn't see that one coming...

But yeah, it's really cool you guys are doing this, keep it up..!

I like the casual tone. Nice music too. I think all the other game-related shows (both TV and Web) are pure crap, but this one has potential. Looking forward to the next one.

Very good, especially for the first episode.

Ps: Sorry for commenting about it, but I find that very funny how many time you get bashed for smoking, no matter if it's on the french side of the site or english side it seems like people all over the world hate cigarettes. :)

I love it... keep it up. Seriously good, two thumbs up ^_^

Pretty good vid for first try. I don't think the PR think about Forza 2 is BS, since they did actually have drivers to test out Forza 1 and the drivers did actually have a pretty realistic time. Forza 2 will only be more realistic than Forza 1.

I'm from Dublin Ireland and I go to Xboxyde pretty much every day. That man speaks the truth!

Started to watch it but the subtitle melt into the picture and I can barly read what's being said.

Is it to much to ask for if you can post the srt file here?

Mine didnt look like that, you sure your codecs are up to date?

I'm not complaining......... but the art you have in the background shows a nipple, which is definitely frowned upon in America.


Like I said...... I'm not complaining, but it's something you might want to be aware of in case of American publicity.

So which one is you and which one is Blim? :p By the way, it was interesting to watch. I agree with Forza 2 not looking incredibly impressive other than the damage modelling.

I think it's just snoopers and pipomantis, blim is working out and getting ready for episode 2

It felt very professional (besides the whole smoking part =/). The show was organized well, good transitions and nice introductions to some of the games. The whole idea of two people talking about games was great and works really well. The cell phone bit was also an interesting way to talk about the game. Some of the music you used for some of the clips didn't feel right and the music selection was a little ...disatisfactory to say the least (but thats just me). It would be great if you would use music from the actual game to play alongside the video. The SC review felt quite long when it didn't need to be but good input on all the games. You are not biased (or atleast seem it) and only comment on gameplay that you have played instead of absurdly saying "it will suck". Good job looking foward to the next.

I just had to make my first post because this was awesome, so ffffrrreeesshhh!

And the greatest part, I could even watch this at work with no soundcard (-> subtitles!) and Panda Gatedefender blocking every videolinks (-> streaming works!)...

What a better way to spend the day at work! :)
Commented on 2006-10-26 08:18:09
Well very good work guys, keep up doing this show cuz this is from gamers to gamers. And for the smoking part i liked it, iam a smoker too and maybe for this reason but look at Itagaki interviews he always smoke :)
Commented on 2006-10-26 08:22:42
I thought showing splinter cell so much was overkill, but then I stopped for a minute and thought... if they were showing Blue Dragon for so long I'd die from the excitement :)

My bad. I'm not so good at translating, and not so good at all at translating things like that ;)
Well, the good point is you understood what I meant !

Everyone keep saying that to me.

Creepy.

Overall I liked it. I won't comment on the unmentionable [smoking]. I also didn't like the whole phone conversation part of it. Next time have him there?

Also since you are subtitling it anyway (thank you!) can you put a warning on screen: spoilers ahead? I forgot that you mentioned that there were spoilers in the Splinter part of the video.

Mad Tracks is really coming along. I was happy to see a video, not having heard anything for a while. Looks great! Nice video and thanks for putting the music credits in at the end.

And about Forza, I pretty much agree with everything in the video about not having a cockpit view. Now, I love Forza! And I know a lot of people just use third person or "hood view", but I love seeing the cockpit/instruments. The feeling of immersion is much higher. Doesn't mean I'm not interested in Forza though.

Great Job guys keep up the great work as always if you ever come to the states we will have to hang out or something maybe Vegas minus the terroits (rainbow 6 joke for those who dont get it)
Commented on 2006-10-26 18:47:11
one TINY mini complaint: if possible, could you guys encode the next episodes without QPEL/GMC?

it doesnt affect the quality of the video, and makes it more compatible for standalone divx players, like the entire Phillips range and many LG players as well.
