    Episode 2


    Here is the second episode of TempCast, the GBAtemp Podcast, this week presented by MR_COW - remember him from the Homebrewcast?- just as it should have been for the first episode! This week, the whole podcast crew are on: MR_COW (aka. Dan), SpikeyNDS (Ed, from Ed's farm!) and of course our lovely British host Little (Lisa). We even had the chance to welcome our first guest, a well known member on GBAtemp: Mister lagman!



    In this second episode, our delicious hosts are discussing the following topics:
    • Your reactions to the podcast & the first episode
    • Quick news: Acekard RPG review, mthrnite's podcast segment, the Supercard SDHC, and the fantastic NDS sales figures
    • Hot new releases or releases to look forward to
    • Zelda: Phantom Hourglass
    • The GBAtemp Trading Forum
    • What the GBAtemp staff is currently working on
    • Little's game of the week: Actionloop/Magnetica
    • Homebrew of the week: ComicBook DS
    Sweet list 'innit? This second episode is nearly 35 minutes long and may be listened directly on your iPod! We hope that you will enjoy this second episode and we'll try to produce new episodes regularly!
    Also, judging by the amount of work required to produce one episode, we've decided that we should release episodes once every fortnight (instead of once a week), but don't worry: this will also mean more interesting things to discuss, more preparation and maybe more cool guests!

    OK, so this week I'd like to thank all the people that have been working on this episode: MR_C0W, SpikeyNDS, Little, lagman, and of course let's not forget the legendary GBAtemp Love Song by tshu! Also thanks to hadrian for his NDS releases of the week topic, helpful as always!

    *UPDATE!* The Tempcast podcast has now been added to iTunes! Just do a search for 'Tempcast' to find it! Also, check out our snazzy new logo!

    Awesome. Can't wait for it to download. I used to listen to the homebrew cast for a while and I always thought it was cool to hear a good summary of the flashcart scene, homebrew of the week, etc. I'm glad Dan's back on the air.

    Please, please tell me the summary list overlooked a discussion about MySims. I really want to know what's up with that game. [​IMG]

    Cheers to the crew [​IMG]

    Hey guys, I'm downloading this episode, but I have a podcasting tip for you.

    128kbps is serious overkill for a voice bitrate. All the other podcasts I listen to have a 64kbps bitrate which is perfect. Their episodes are twice your length, and still smaller in size than yours. So seriously, bring it down a bit and save us all the bandwidth.

    Before, I wouldn't have cared at all, but I'm in a new apartment with free "high speed" internet that maxes out at about 50KB/s download, so I'm realizing how important manageable download sizes are. And the Tempcast is just too big at 128kbps.
