Hey all. I have started making a DSi based podcast that will cover DSiWare, Reviews, etc. I have made the first episode and the link is on my blog: <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://solarpolitiks.blogspot.com/">http://solarpolitiks.blogspot.com/</a><!-- m -->
The first one is a little rough but with feedback and user submitted reviews I think it can become pretty decent. Feedback would truly help!

Nice first podcast, admittedly I just scanned through most of it, but not bad at all. You definitely need other people in there though, it's more interesting when a clash of opinions come into play, especially with the DSi, you need someone that likes the DS Lite better or something.

That being said, looking forward to the next one, is this going to be a weekly thing or...? :scratch:

It would be weekly but I don't wanna do too many podcasts without a cohost. But hopefully it will end up being a weekly or biweekly thing. Plus, I don't wanna annoy too many people with my voice :P.

Your voice is fine, and there weren't all that many ummms, which is nice. Some of the most annoying podcasters are the ones that seem to try and improvise, but can't really do it, so you get a lot of ummms and ackward-ness..... which is why I avoid talking in my videos. Can't really talk even a minute without saying ummmm a billion times.

Personally, I'd try and broaden your podcast's focus a little more. I can't imagine being able to put out a weekly or biweekly show on the DSi alone. Even the DS scene in its entirety is sometimes slow. You get weeks that are just dry, and sometimes talking about the releases doesn't really cut it because you'd have to actually play through quite a bit of the game to do a decent job, unless you do something interesting. Anyways, just my two cents.

Heh, thanks. I probably will end up broadening the focus a bit although I have got some pretty good news for the next cast so hopefully this scene keeps moving.
Anyways I made a dedicated site for it. Although I hate webs its free and its easy. This is where the latest cast will be found. <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.solarscast.webs.com/">http://www.solarscast.webs.com/</a><!-- m --> (DSiCast was already taken O.o)
Sadly I have not gotten much feedback on the show yet. Hopefully I will get some more attention drawn to this.

Hey ummmm, I see that you have the case on hand already. :( Mine has STILL not come in the mail.... I am absolutely pissed about that. But that asides, I wanted to ask how it is, is it sturdy is it good? I might buy another one just to get it shipped out again..... since I think it is just horrid luck on my part. But if it isn't great, then I might just go for a DX case or something...

Thanks

The case I got was from Hong Kong seller on ebay. 7 bucks and it seems very sturdy. The blue is aluminum and feels decently strong. If you want a link to the listing just say so. :D The ones on DX are not even DSi cases, they have an opening for slot 2 and no camera hole :scratch:

Wait a minute.... I'm thinking of someone else I guess, cause someone was PM'ing me about cases for DSi, and I dropped a note about buying that same case you have, and he bought it at the same time I did. Nevermind then I guess. Thanks for letting me know.


O crap, I see where my post was misleading. The case you bought is found on FP, and its about $4.50 there. Pretty sweet deal, and they ship pretty fast too, just that all the orders surrounding my case arrived in a week, I'm thinking the case got lost or something.

Ah, ok. I was like... What is he talkin about? Lol. That is a decent deal. My case arrived in about a week. I normally hate ebay but it was a good price.

Alright everybody,
New Show maybe tomorrow. I got a new mic and some great info from E3 about the DSi. If not tomorrow then Thursday. Then after that a hiatus because I am going to Ohio for a month and I will not have my resources. Who knows. I may be able to update the site with some news. In the mean time. Check out the forums... Since nobody is there :P. Leave some feedback, sign the guestbook, register :)

I recorded the cast but MediaFire is acting up on me now. Anyways some things to look forward to:
-I got a new mic so I should sound clearer
-I am alone so I took your feedback and this episode is 25 minutes long. (That's a good time right?)
-I talk about some E3 DSi Stuff.
-I say what disappointed me about E3.
-I tell people to get active on the site :P
I will update this post when I can upload the file. In the mean time I will be messing around with the forums and the site.
Sorry Pharaoh (No reviews, I am doin those next show :( )

That's great news! :) A co-host sounds great, bouncing vibes off each other is part of what makes podcasts great. :)

Yeah we actually plan on doing the podcast this weekend (If he can find the time) but I already have most of the out line for the show done. Plus you can get the different views on the new update (he is a firm no on this meanwhile I already updated mine). I'm planning on this helping me come back and get some more shows done :)

Due to an unreliable co host Wednesday I will be doing another podcast alone... At least it is getting done. I gotta do one more before school starts... :(
