So I listened to:
-The Weekend Confirmed where they talk about Alan Wake AN. I found it unbelievably annoying at first, and stopped listening to it when I realised that Garnett only really works when there's people to tell him what an idiot he is and to shut up. He also still does the thing where he states the obvious with the view that it is either something totally revelatory or controversial. They kept trying to get this girl to say Heyo! Which is much worse than it sounds and it sounds horrible.
I then switched the the Live 8-4 Play and the douchebaggery nearly destroyed me. They spend far, far too long on their idiotic introductions and I feel like you lot were trolling me as they spent a huge amount of time talking about Weird Japanese Games. Bloody Suikodden.
I then switched back
to Weekend Confirmed and listened to the whole thing, as I had nothing else on my phone. It was bearable but nothing fantastic. That arsehole kept shouting about how he swears and stuff during games but he's enjoying it and he was basically just playing up to the inane girl who kept laughing at his bull.
After getting through that, I gave the 8-4 Play with James Mielke and it was much better. The segment with him was excellent. What a dude. They also have this guy who sounds like Anthony from GFW Radio (possibly that horrendous looking Geekbox podcast now?) and he seems okay.
After that I went back and finished off their Live one. Still not great.
tl;dr - If you're name isn't Luke Smith, Shawn Elliott, James Mielke or Jeff Greene, I have no patience for anyone on podcasts.
The Golden Age Of (Gaming) Podcasts is clearly over.
