Video: Wootini's Video Podcast #18

So this week, I tried another new game, although one I didn't actually have to pay for, so my opinion may be slightly skewed. I just wanted to see if my mind was being warped. Also, it's totally research for an upcoming article, so there's that, too. But of course, the big news this week is Sony's... um, drama. I offer up my opinion on the PlayStation Network's woes, although — spoiler alert! — I'm not exactly that bothered because I rarely fire up my PS3 for games anyway!

Ok, we got it a long time ago. You don't use your PS3. At this point, you sound like a broken record drama queen. A spiteful one at that.

Just like every time someone says "My Wii has been collecting dust for months", I cringe when I hear the same in regards to the PS3 or 360. If you don't use it, sell it or give it away. Anything to keep people from repeating the same monotonous phrases.

Oh, but I DO use my PS3. Though mostly to play Blu-ray movies. (I actually use my 360 to stream Netflix because that's what I was using first, and never switched over. Plus, I like the new Kinect voice controls where you can say "pause" and "play" without having to reach for a controller. Very futuristic!)

And I apologize for repeating myself. As you can clearly tell, my vidcasts aren't scripted, and I have a tendency to tell the same stories over and over again. Ask anyone!

Couple of complaints:

1. I use headphones, all the talking that you do comes through the left speaker only. Next time, record in mono, or double the left channel track to the right channel as well.

2. The volume could've been a bit louder, maybe around -10 dB at the peak.

Everything else was fine though :)

I usually don't really know much about the games or game systems that are discussed in these Podcasts, but I continue to watch because Wootini is just way too cute to not watch :-)

Wootini said:

SuperDude, the audio's always been in both channels (maybe I could boost the volume, tho). I've viewed this episode on two different computers with two different sets of headphones, and it comes in both ears for me.

Has anyone else experienced this problem, or is it just a glitch on his end? Because when I record them and export them, they're in stereo...

I don't use my PS3 much either, but I do keep the old tired nag around in case something exclusive but great comes out. Like Infamous 2.

It's a reasonable position - the console Sony originally sold us is far less capable now, but excellent second party devs (sadly exclusive - what a waste) like Insomniac are still a valid reason to keep it sitting there.

But Wootini's comments on how broken the entire ecosystem is are still valid. It isn't his fault for continuing to mention it, it's Sony's fault for not fixing the problems, and indeed, even making it worse as time goes on.
