So, I think I'm going to try to make my own NiGHTS podcast, inspired by DreamCast. Anybody interested?

You ain't being a complete dumbass. I too think about the DreamCast and how the gap between podcast have drastically increased over the years. Back in 2007 there was a new one every few months but as time went on less and less were released. At least I think I'm right about it's frequency back in '07. It's been a while.

Not a bad idea.
We could use the forums and the IRC to hash out ideas and compile material for a show, see who's available to record and what not - then go from there. It'd take a fair amount of work for whomever ends up involved, but it's something that's not impossible.

I wouldn't mind participating in this now and again. I've always wanted to do something for DreamCast. I just never knew what.

Doing your own podcast is fine, and pending input from DiGi and TRiPPY, could be something new with DreamCast. However, I know that they are both superbusy and I believe DreamCast kinda serves as the official site podcast, therefor is somewhat reserved to those two.

Don't let that stop your from starting your own in the meantime, though, however I doubt anything with DreamCast is going to pick up anytime soon.

I'm not really interested in starting my own podcast though; I was mostly just hoping to restart a podcast that I liked, and if that maybe involves spearheading the project, I wouldn't really have an issue with that. I was mostly just hoping to drum up some interest and see if we can't get some wheels in motion. The reason I proposed something a bit more independent of DiGi and TRiPPY was because of how busy they are. One thing that any website relies on is being able to put out content regularly. If we were able to do something like a weekly podcast, I can imagine the site would net quite a few more hits, which is always a good thing.

I don't plan on doing anything without their consent though, so don't worry about that. :P

I really would like to hear something from DiGi or TRiPPY at some point; I know how threads work on this site and if nobody posts here in a few days this all might just die. Don't want. :(

I understand your concern, and trust me, it's not like TRiPPY and DiGi are ignoring you, they just really havn't had any time to get onto the forums recently.

I'm with Level 99 in that, if this is what you want to do, go right on ahead. Start a podcast and call it something else for the time being, until TRiP and DiGi can get back to you.

Maybe I'll do a short solo proof of concept thing. We'll see this weekend. :(

(If anybody else wants in, PM me and I'll see if I can't set up anything via skype this weekend.)

Just bumping to say I'm still interested in doing this, and I'm looking for anybody who wants to hop in on it.

Hey, it's been a while, but I just want to say that I still want to do this and still want this to be a thing.

I wish you could delete posts, triple posting looks so ugly. :c

We need to start a new podcast, or continue this one. With the 15th anniversary coming up, I think this would be a really great way to get the word out over the internet.

I would be willing to give one a shot, but I would need some hosts. As *charming and charismatic* as I am, I couldn't pull it off on my own. I would need help with ideas, content generation, and simply making it more fun to listen to. I would like at least two other hosts, maybe three.

You mentioned content generation. I think that's mainly one of the bigger issues, simply because what material do we have to work with? I guess you could announce and show some of the NiD15 fan projects coming up but, besides that, it is tough to formulate ideas that would be more than just rehashing what's already done.

It would be tricky for sure, but we're a bunch of artists here, I'm sure we can be creative.

Dohoho.

E: I think I know where I'm witnessing a bit of disconnect here. The new Dreamcast doesn't actually have to be as long as the old one. Despite how long the other episodes are, if there's only 15 minutes of content to be covered, then it only needs to be 15 minutes long.

So, with DC 12 does that mean this thread is debunked now? I know it wasn't entirely a popular idea in the first place, but I still would like to know.

Dreamcast is DiGi and I's official podcast (and always will be) but there's nothing stopping you from making your own NiGHTS related podcast and sharing it with the community. I encourage it.

When i started making the DreamCast show way back in 2007 i had all the spare time in the world back then. As the years passed on, things in my life became busier and furthermore there's only so many times we can talk about the same thing in regards to NiGHTS. After a while, and especially after the meny different versions this site and it's forums have been through, you run out of new and interesting things to say ...which is why new shows only ever really began to occur when something was happening.

We did try doing some off topic shows at one point and they were also nice too, i found them to be quite a break from the usual around here. But then if you keep doing off-topic shows you're going to forget what the main point of the DreamCast show was to begin with. Plus, by that point, making hour long shows really began to take up too much time. Recording for an hour, editing, listening through to check. For every hour we record an extra hour has to go in to listening over and sadly it's time i just began having less of.

But DreamCast is never officially dead, i'll still be doing a show whenever i have the time and i feel one is needed.

And i'll also echo what TRiPPY has said there in the fact that should you guys in the community wish to record your own podcasts then by all means, be our guests. While it won't be the sites official show i too encourage a bit more community creation in the forums. Making a podcast can be just one of them, in a way.

So, tl;dr -
- DreamCast is still around, only being brought out when we need to make a show.
- fans are obviously free to make their own shows and post them in the forums, they just won't be the sites official show though

Hope that's all cool with you all :)
