I've done a lot of things as a kid, but I thought I might want to show off something I've slowly but surely grown proud of.

My brother and I are currently working on a gaming podcast, called Games in Rotation, where we pick a game each week to play, and see if it fits into our 'rotation' (get it? haha). It's not the first time I've tried to do things like this, but it's the first time I put cash on it.

It's taught me a decent few things for the month or so I've been working on it, from how to audio-edit basic audio recordings, to how bloody expensive getting a podcast to host a weekly, hour show is.

Either way, thought I'd post this here to show you guys, being that I've spent most of my teenage and adult years on these forums.

EDIT: Wow, I really didn't want the title to sound 'advertisey' but it definitely still does. Ah well, bleh.

Just did an episode on Mutant Zero Dawn: Road to Eden. I've never hated a game so highly acclaimed before, but I think I've definitely figured out that, even if a game does a genre you adore, (XCOM-esque tactical games are a personal favorite of mine) doesn't mean it'll be a game you like.

https://gamesinrotation.blubrry.net/2019/03/13/episode-nine-a-pig-a-duck-and-a-girl-walk-into-a-bar/ for the link to the podcast episode, it's also on all of the links above as well.

Did an episode on Slay the Spire.

And it didn't blow up like the Foxhole episode had, but it still brought in a lot of people. Finally hit the 100+ listeners, which is.. great. Sorta happy, actually. Youtube is doing pretty good as well, with the videos for Slay the Spire hitting 50+ views each.

I feel like I'm actually succeeding a lil.

I've been looking for a new podcast lately and I'm into this

Thank ye, glad to have ya.


Anyhow, recently did a few episodes. Did one on Dominions 5, an that as a fairly successful episode, gaining the podcast 50+ new listens and a few new listeners, which is great.
Alongide that, was a Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice episode, which is probably one of the better episodes to date.

As well to that, I've had to set up a Patreon and Discord server for it, to be professional/try to help the 40+ dollars a month it takes to keep things running..

Bleh, I suppose I should keep this up more. I don't want this to be a 'post episode each week' as I respect this community, but I'm still putting episodes up in the main link.

Recently did an XCOM Enemy Unknown VS X-COM UFO Defense podcast episode, which definitely was interesting. My brother and I both prefer one, as I enjoy the old game, and he the new. So we played the other's favorite and talked about it.

Also, recently hit 200+ listens, so, I'm very very happy.

I'll check it out as soon as I'm done listening to the batch of podcast episodes I downloaded today. ;)

[EDIT 10 days later] So, I've listened to two or three episodes and what I really loved was your episode on Creeper World 3. Your discussion about how each of you approached the game differently highlights the strength of it. I believe that is also the strength of your podcast: the dual perspective on things.

Bleh, I haven't checked this in a while. Been busy, but, thank you! I think it's really what puts us apart from the rest of the chaff. I think we do a good job at offering two differing perspectives from two differing types of gamers. Glad to hear you like it, at least!

Anyhow, nearing the 20 episode mark, after a ton of issues and problems, including scheduling. Recently did a Battle Brothers episode, ( https://gamesinrotation.blubrry.net/2019/06/05/episode-nineteen-davkul-awaits-us-all/ ), and thinking of probably trying to cover E3.

Hit 300+ listeners, and sort of estatic it's hit that mark. Thought it'd never get more then a hundred, at most. Glad to hear some people really like it.
