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 :)

Love the casual feeling of it, and the objective, direct, honest and uncompromised commentaries - that's something most if not all major game sites have lost.

It felt like a true chat from gamers to gamers, not PR propaganda or advertisers-compromised company bullshit, like we're much used to see.

Keep up the awesome work! It rocks and makes this site truly unique. ;)

hehe you made a funny. the man with the pentagram doesnt like a nipple? amerikans dont like nipples? umm actually, yes we do.


BTW, can you guys smoke pot next time. id definitely watch that one.
What I meant was that it would be tough for this interview to show up in an American magazine, or something like that, because they would have to put an 18+ sticker on it, due to the nipple.


But yes, I'm rather fond of nipples, myself. ;)

This was one of the best of this type of shows I have ever seen. Not as overproduced as ign weekly.. and better commentary on games that both ign weekly and 1up show.. very good job, hope you guys keep doing more of these.

Good show indeed, professional, but casual, very nice balance you found there!

Only thing that bothered me is the splintercell review over the phone, I don't know, I thought it was a bit annoying.

Also, are you sticking to one show a month or are there plans for a more regular schedule, like twice a month (though I can understand the work that allready goes into one episode, so I presume not)?

Anyways, really looking forward to the next episode, keep it up..!

Great effort, great site. Always the first on my list to check. Thanks for all of your hard work.

Sorry,i didn't like it,but nice try anyway.

I didn't mind the subtitles. Btw, are you guys going to be covering both PS3 and 360 in the same show, or will there be seperate ones?

I think that added to me skipping through it too, if it was PS3-only I probably would have stuck with it more :)

Yeah, this episode was a bit lopsided in its coverage. I tuned out somewhere 'round Viva Pinata.

You've got a second (as in 2nd vote) for a PS3-only program.

awesome.

I give myslelf low scores for downloading the French version and expecting English subtitles (God I'm an idiot).

Too bad you guys are so ugly though :/
Work on that, eh?

PLUMB where have you been you old drunk ;)

Gamersyde is a multi console show. Depending on the news it may be more about one console than another, but we'll do our best to balance stuff. Of course the fact that PS3 won't be out until march here in France won't help.

I haven't had the chance to see it yet..
Commented on 2006-10-28 01:09:43
Wasn't this sort of a post-TGS episode though? I mean, the PS3 pwned that event...

Anywho, really appreciate you guys' work... I'm sure your North American (and Japanese) viewership would enjoy more PS3 coverage.
Commented on 2006-10-28 03:52:12
This was really good. Like, the best show I've ever seen about games.

So much better than anything we get in the UK, I can't speak for all the american programs but from what I've seen, your programme is far superior.

Keep it up. I wasn't that interested in most of the games but the presentation was done so well.

Kudos on the musical taste as well.

Snoopers = legend.

enjoyed the show guys! i like the format.

incase anyone hasnt mentioned thoguh, "biru hitotsu kudasai" means "one building please" :) what you want is biiru (double the lengh of the i vowel sound) and u'll avoid urself from embarassment in the izakayas!
Commented on 2006-10-28 22:10:59
NOW that was mindblowingly well done! Pipomantis and Snoopers can give a well-earned pat on the back. Great editing, music selection, ahh I can go all day about what things you did right. The smoking didn't bother me much but having to get rid of the ash on the ashtray was a bit distracting. Other than that, SUPERB work guys. Keep it up. And great opening, liking the eyeball animation and other stuff.

Haha, sucks for Polyphony Digital to having no damage system!
Viva Pinata was awesome, and I take your point about Forza not having a cockpit cam, but that's only because PGR 3 spoiled us. Forza is a different game, that has to deal with a lot more than amazing graphics. It needs a very high level of simulation comparable to GT and that's a lot of hard work. Then there's that very impressive damage system that's close to the level we saw in the first tech demos for 360 XNA software. Oh and Double Agent was very impressive, must buy that right now. The fact that it has 3 endings means it has 30 hours of gameplay, depending on how you'll play it.
But I didn't like that you gave a review on a phone, seemed unrealistic Snoopers. Either way, amazing and hard work Snoopers for directing and editing.

We'll definitely have more (and I really mean MORE) PS3 coverage in the next issues. Like, in the next one ;)

Well, to be honest, this part wasn't supposed to be like this at all. We had some issues to deal with, and in the end, the telephone thing was the only way we could bring you the show in time.
Commented on 2006-10-29 02:41:37
I didn't finish watching the show yet, but I wanted to come here and say this: It is awesome. I really didn't expect it to be so good. Good work, guys.
The phone thing... After watching the 1up show for quite a while, I'm kind of used to see these little kind of fake ways of showing your opinions and such, so it's really no biggie.

And hey, guess your french is really good for native english speakers. :þ
Commented on 2006-10-29 06:04:59
Look forward to it Snoopers... ps whens the next one? :p
Commented on 2006-10-29 11:36:32 In reply to Snoopers
Yeah tell me about it: if only Pipo hadn't gotten so drunk, he wouldn't have been hammered the day of the shooting ;)
Commented on 2006-10-29 12:22:16
This looks great. I love these kinds of shows about games, but they're hard to find on tv. Some people on the web really do these well.
Thx a lot and I hope there will more of these shows.
:-)
