    For several weeks, Tom's been moaning on the podcast about the lack of interesting forum threads for them to talk about in Forum Affairs. I personally suspect that's just his excuse for forgetting to browse the forum and look for decent threads before the podcast AGAIN, but just in case I'm wrong - it's time for action!

    So, a brainstorming session here people! Imagine a forum thread that might actually be interesting enough to mention on the podcast! You don't have to discuss the topic itself, just create the topic!

    Forum Thread Examples:
    "Is Eurogamer better than cheese on toast?"
    "Should the podcast be cancelled and made way for a hyperspace bypass?"
    "Robot Pirate dinosaurs vs Monkey Gangster Ninjas: which is cooler?"
    "Would you eat a Move, a Kinect or a Wii, and which would still work afterwards?"

    That type of thing. Should be easy for you to come up with better ones.

    Good examples. I might have thought have thought of them myself when I was 15 year old and going through my "LOLOL RANDOM AND WACKY IS FUNNY EVEN IF IT'S NOT WITTY. ELEPHANT WEARING A TOP HAT SMOKING A PIPE LOLOLOLOL."

    Yeah...

    Jupiter's Cock.

    And so forth.

    If I created a thread I wouldn't want it to be mentioned on the podcast. Don't want it to ruin the reputation and credibility of the thread.

    I have never listened to a podcast, ever. Not even the EG ones.

    Then again, my homepage is the EG forum. I basically never even venture to the other parts of the site :D

    I'm fairly certain the only reason he can't find a good enough thread each week is because the only time he ever visits the forum once a week... On a Monday, 5 minutes before the podcast is recorded.
  • Deleted user 13 August 2010 19:31:33
    Just in case he does read this thread:

    "Tom is an overbearing podcast megalomaniac: yes or no?"
    "Should Tom bother with podcasts when Ellie is not available to provide decent entertainment?"
    "Can we have a podcast where you just givehyphenouthyphenfreehyphencodes for 20 minutes?"
    "Which Tom are you on about anyway?"
    "etc"

    To be fair, he's probably visited it more times than thetingler.

    How about "Eurogamer Podcast? WHAT Eurogamer Podcast?"

    Or "What's a Podcast?"

    Did Ellie deserve yet another GMA nomination considering her article writing and reviews seem to have been markedly scaled back in favour of camera work?

    Not that I care, it's just, you know, fact.

    It's a radioshow minus talent.

    geez, it sounds like i'm the only one that likes to listen to it every week

    Could make my own forum thread about it but can't be arsed, basically I just want to know when they plan to add video reviews?

    No matter what I always make sure to check out gametrailers reviews more than anywhere else, not because I prefer their editorial/score side of things (not the case at all) but after checking out Eg or where ever it's good to actually see how it plays...and showing the 15 minutes of a game isn't as good like EG tend to do.

    HAHA, yes, fair cop, but I keep forgetting it! It's pretty subtle all up there you know. I visit the site and comment all the time, just rarely venture on the forum.

    "Which Tom are you on about anyway?"

    Bramwell. Hi Tom!
