...Really? The mp3 widget should be Windows Media Player driven...

...and I just realized that you have to sign in and be a member to download. What a bummer. :(

I'll download it onto my phone if you could get it to work with iTunes. Please let me know if you get it working.

I'm really looking forward to listening to this!

Excellent work. I probably won't listen to it (I'm not on my personal computer), but it's a great great idea.

Question: is it just you talking? If it is, you should definitely get someone else to help you out as one person's viewpoint will get old, quickly. (That wasn't supposed to be a 'pick me' kind of thing, either, although if you do decide you like the idea and, for some reason, want me to help, I will. [Now it sounds like I did it on purpose. I promise I didn't!])

[Edit:]

Clarity!

Anyway can't wait for next weeks pre-E3 episode of "The Dojoooooooooooh"

Excellent work. I really enjoyed that.

You have a fantastic vocabulary, and there was a lot of great delivery. Entertaining, informative, and an overall good listen. Keep up the good (and presumably hard) work. It definitely is appriciated.

I agree with everyone, I think that was really well done. It sounded like you wrote your stuff down before recording, as if you were reading from a page, but it was good. You used expression, and it didn't sound like you were winging it. Really amazing and fun to listen to. I heavily enjoyed it and will be anticipating the next few to come. "Buddy list" me?

Wait, so I need Windows Media Player to listen? Where's the Linux love? :(

The whole "eSnips" thing seems kinda.. crappy, actually.
If you'd like, I could possibly arrange to let you upload stuff to the webspace I upload things to... unfortunately, it's not my own, so I'd have to ask for permission first.

Thanks for the compliments, guys! Really, I'm floored with how much you all like it!

I'll address a couple things:

Great! Just sounds too much like your reading out loud sometimes
- Yes, I did write everything out beforehand (7 pages single spaced, haha) - I'm sorry if it sounded too much like I was reading straight-up. Something to improve on though, and that's fine with me!

Question: is it just you talking? If it is, you should definitely get someone else to help you out as one person's viewpoint will get old, quickly.
- For those wondering if I'll be the "only one talking," I agree that can get old quick. But that's where you come in! If you want to get your voice heard, record yourself discussing something Brawl-worthy, send it to the email, and there's a good chance I'll put you on an episode! It doesn't HAVE to be just me, people, community involvement is where it's at!

The whole "eSnips" thing seems kinda.. crappy, actually.
If you'd like, I could possibly arrange to let you upload stuff to the webspace I upload things to... unfortunately, it's not my own, so I'd have to ask for permission first.
- The whole eSnips things REALLY bites and personally, I'm not happy with it. It was a last-minute thing. The goal was to get it up somewhere on Sunday (as it's meant to be a weekend show). And I don't have the resources like putting it up on a website and all.

SO PLEASE!!

If you want to host The DOJO!! on your website, I implore you to be my guest! PM me and we'll get something set up! Hopefully this can also lead to the podcast going up onto iTunes for far-easier downloading!

Thanks for all the support! And don't forget about the Theme Contest! Get your voice heard, that's what it's all about!

A voice of angels, yours. XD

But seriously, good work. I thoroughly enjoyed that and I will be sure to check the podcast in the future.

And you're right, if there is only one newcomer in the next trailer (whether it is at E3 or later) I would hope it would be Sonic.

The only disappointment was the lack of mention of Diddy Kong.


*snif


That's just me talking. I'm happy with how the whole cast went, especially considering I've been up the whole night and I'm hungry. I think I'm starting to not make sense now. Why am I announcing my inner thoughts to the public?

*ahem*

The only point I would have to disagree with would be Sakurai's Random Bowser Inclusion post. I don't find it random that he is announcing more vets. Really, though, what we all want to actually see is new characters, because frankly, I think the class of SSBM will return. It just seems....I dunno...unclassy to give the boot to characters. Except Pichu. Everyone wants him gone. So I wouldn't worry too much about Veterans Revealing Dates.



(Hehe, wouldn't that be a riot if Yoshi didn't make it in to SSBB after all the stage and music stuff:p)

Very impressive. Well organized, your voice sounded perfect on it and you brought up a number of great topics for discussion while still being objective with your own viewpoints. I loook forward to the next installment

Youko, I'm about to send you a PM about more then one personality talking on the show.

Fawriel: you use Linux? Sha-weet! I had no idea! What distribution you using? And it'll work on Linux...just use VLC.

Ah, but what if I told you I definitely think he's due for a roster spot? :) ...It's just that I don't think it'll be announced at E3.

It's my intent to do so weekly, and sometime on the weekends. Saturday, Sunday, at the moment I'm not too sure which, but the goal is to give us something to listen to on the weekends to fill the update-void.



Thanks, guys! Spread the word!!

As long as this doesn't include anything about wavedashing, advanced techniques, and other "favorite topics" of competitive players, it should be good. Hopefully you keep your word on making this more from the viewpoint of the average smasher, because that's where the actual interesting speculation comes from. Not from what drives the game in the competitive community (player to player connection), but what is put in (and what could be put in) by Sakurai and Sora in order to make this the best general Smash experience yet, based on everything from characters, to stage designs and music (more of a player to game connection).

Hey Youko,great job on the podcast! I like how you weren't biased toward certain characters or certain decisions or updates.You gave a balanced perspective & I appreciate that.

On a more personal note,thanks for the shoutout! :grin: We (The Dawn Patrol) are really flattered that you would mention us.We're just doing our jobs and your podcast helps us through the long nights. :laugh:

SlackBladders in depth review

Hmmm.
I'm listening to the podcast for the second time so far, and I must say, the first time I was only listening becuase I'd been told the Dawn patrol got a shout out.
Now I'm listening simply because I found it rather riverting.
Hmm.
*rewinds it*
Okay, I'm gonna attempt to review this as I listen.
Wish me Luck! (;

Okay "the week that was"
Hmmm.
You give a brief rundown on each update we got, and so far, you seem to be nailing what every smasher is thinking. The stage mention, with the changing thing thats going on was something I have doubts about myself.

"July 8th, the average smasher point of view"
Why I podcast? You took the question right out of my keyboard.
And yeah, I do have something to look forward to! :D
Nice into of what the Podcast is about, that was good.

"The rundown"
This is were you first stumble on a word, as far as I could see.
Thats not a cardinal sin or anything, but you may wanna work on that.
Another note of your voice, you do sound a little stale, as if reading blankely of a script.
You adress the AT issue brilliantly, pointing out every issue i've seen floating around, and you do so smoothy and cooly. Hmmm, you list the possible AT's well to, giving a reason to why they shoudl be there.

"King koopa is back"
'Shy with his own creation? Oh course!' :D
I'm hoping you answerd many peoples questions about who will be revield, and who has been hinted at, JUST in case anyone missed those Sakurai hints.
Nice joke about Giga Bowser and the U.S.A, though once again, you sounded stale, which takes it's "hit" down.
Ah, Ganondorf changing...Ah, my main gets his media attraction.
Well, I'm gonna go with you on that one, Super Sonic! Ha. Beat ya to it.
But here, you disscusse some neat (and very pleasuble) idea's you have for the character FS's.

*wining music plays"
And now were on the stage.
Tourny ban? Once again, took the issue right were it needed to be.
Talking about it well, if not stunningly. Why is your voice almost hypnotic?
Hmm. Now, you give a good reason as to stages that will very likely be banned, and then ones that WILL stay in. (Hopefully)
It's great to go in depth with stages like this, and talking about these things.
I like how you werent biased on this issue either, thats a wonderful part you added, I hate one-way-roads.

Castle stage has scared me. DON'T SAY IT-Yous said it. banned.
You stumbled again, on the bit about the "Helepad" stage...
Okay, that section was near-perfect. That was wonderful, save for a few voice-stutters.
*reverses track a bit* ****, I missed the next sections name. XD

"Brawl viewpoint"
You offer up listener communitcation and involvment.
Thats something special indeed, I must say.
Once again, you adress many up-in-yo-face issues, (This time about E3 and Brawl) The release date issue was to be expected, though you actually adress a few issues such as why Nintendo SHOULD show it as a bonus to them themselves. The tralier talk...what would it show?
You give us some good info on what we can expect to see, and of couse Sonic is the spotlight character on what we should see.
Ah, another stumble. (sorry for the nitpiking, but I'm just reviewing as in depth as I can XD)

We quickly adress the fact that Brawl is unplayable, which is nice to squeeze in, as it is a good thing to bring up.
The final number of characters, stages, and starters, as well as the starting roster. Here you're filling peoples heads with whismical ideas XD.
AH, and you hint at further online talk.
Nice to get people wanting to listen there. Works for me!
Ah, *reverses* to **** fast there!

Okay...here we go.
Opinions and views?
Once again, you attempt to get listener incorporation into the POD, wonderful!
Oh, I may just submit some text rants to here your voice. Seriosuly, it's oddly soothing...that may sound gay, lol, but whatever XD.

"Competition time"
Yet again, you give us reason to keep the listners going.
Remixed music? Once again, you have me intrigued, youko.
So far, I haven't heard much voice trips in a while.
You seem to get better as you go.

"The end"
And then you stumbled. Ah well.
Shoutout: SCORE DAWN PATROL FTW!!
You just got an extra million points for that. XD
Seriosuly though, I really enjoyed the Podcast all up. Presented beautifuly, wel written script, audiance participation, interesting issues, you have it all!
The only thing is really the occasinaly stale voice, with stumbles, and mabye sounding a tad...wooden at times?
Final score for this week, 7.5/10.
Loved it though, and I hope next ones will be even better.
I look foward to a reviewing eachone, if you're cool with it Yokou.

Till next ep, keep up the great work.
(sorry for the spelling errors, and saying your voice is hypnotic XD)

No problem on the review, Blackadder, it gives you something to do and it gives me pointers how to improve! Great job! Thanks!

Hopefully you keep your word on making this more from the viewpoint of the average smasher, because that's where the actual interesting speculation comes from.
For the perspectives that I personally give, yes, I will focus on the player-to-game connection. I am not a tournament-competitive-smasher by any means (though I'm not a n00b while playing either, haha), so you won't ever hear me talking down or sounding arrogant. No "STFU n00bs!" etc. from me whatsoever...OK, except there, but that's to make a point!

However, for the other perspectives that people send in for the Brawl Viewpoint (and more...?) I can't guarantee that. I hope that people send stuff in, preferably audio, for me to choose from, but varying points of view are always interesting. Keeps things fresh, ya know?

Moving this thread up - just edited the first post, if you can think of a namechange for The DOJO, please let me know! That's right, I'm leaving this up to the community as well!

Plus, I seem to not be able to find out how to change the thread's title (to add "Edited" notes to it, etc.), so if this seems like spam, I apologize, but it's the best way right now.

I thought the fourth of July- Giga Bowser connection was interesting.

Good question, just made an update on it on the initial post - Sundays, late afternoon/early evening (EST). This gives me time to work on it after collecting and analyzing the news from the week.

After I get more practice with making these, I'll be able to say a SPECIFIC time, but for now, let's just go with that.

I'd love it if you could release them at 11:00 P.M NST (an hour before the update). That way we have something to listen to while we wait, and it also gives us some time to comment constructively.
