Swingin’ Report Show #31: Restructuring

This week we have a inimate podcast with just George and Barry. That’s right, we are going to get you all settled in by talking about SEGA restructuring, Anarchy Reigns and much more. Give the podcast a listen and tell us what you think of the new shorter format. Too short? Just right? Leave a comment.

Note: The YouTube version will be going up early tomorrow. I wanted to get it ready in time, but didn’t have enough time. Sorry!

    Is it going to be on iTunes?

    • George says:

      We fixed the iTunes feed like they asked us to and doesn’t pick it up. Not much we can do. We e-mailed Apple and they don’t reply.

    • Emmett The Crab says:

      Okay, I’ll download it then. Thanks for letting me know so I don’t keep waiting.

  3. CrazyTails says:

    Nothing’s generic about Binary Domain 😉 Binary domain is one hell of an amazing game and i can’t make sense of how people can treat it as anything else. It’s the best 3rd person shooter i have ever played.

  4. Barry the Nomad says:

    Oop! The youtube vid says April 4th, but we recorded on May 4th.

    Good show, chaps!

  6. Emmett The Crab says:

    Just finished it. Great job. I think the format is good. I was afraid when you said it was on YouTube that it would only be 10 minutes. I didn’t know they allow stuff this long.
