    I think the link where it says Download Latest Episode is broken I clicked on it and got a error.

    Love to know what you think of the audio this time. I revised my production flow and added in a few steps to punch up the sound and smooth it out so we all sound the same level.

    Glados Ringtone was brought up by http://wmexperts.com/monday-am-fun-portal-glados-ringtones last week. It looks like it was available for a while at the site http://erolcomic.com/glados which WM Experts links to.

    Great show, as usual!
    The audio/voices are more smooth, but there is more background noise now, from now and then;)

    I can’t wait till there’s an option for Notifications to have Achievements only (and Messages/Invites only). I’ve wanted this since the week the 360 launched.

    am I losing the plot here or was the name the game clip different from last weeks?

    Audio sounded good, but “e” was drowned out a lot in past episodes. Will have to wait until the next episode to see how great it really is.

    But overall, the audio was loud and smooth the whole time. It was like the microphone was to their face the entire time.

    DigitalMatrixIO: the links to the ringtones (call, voicemail and text message) are on the right-hand side of that page. Thanks for the link, by the way🙂

    We shall see. The worst audio in the past is the phone interviews. The levels are generally really off. I also hate listening to a podcast and they blast me with the intro music and then I have to turn up the main section then they blast the outro again. I’m not sure I recall that problem with this podcast.

    Great show🙂 I think I like it when the show is around the 1 hour mark, means I can listen to it in one session!

    good show, the audio levels seemed good.

    @DigitalMatrixIO: thanks for the links to the ringtones, the incoming call one was really funny

    Sounds good here! On the subject of Lara:GOL, would most of us have had a problem waiting 2 more weeks to have the full functionality, as opposed to getting most of the game now, and the multiplayer later?😀

    Hey Major! Much better this week with the audio. Kudos to you and thanks for the effort. I think a big part of why the voices kind of fall off is when e (and occasionally Stepto) finish a sentence at half or a third volume. Almost like they are talking under their breath or something, even though I don’t think that’s what they’re trying to do. Laura’s volume stays the same. Props to her for being consistent. Give her the 2 Chair. She rocks.

    Thanks again for the effort and great show!

    Friends, Romans, Countrymen, Major Nelson & Customer Support, please lend me your ears.
    I bought the Rapture Metro Map pack yesterday off the dashboard sale site, but was chagrined to find I was charged 800 ms points instead of the 1/2 off 400 ms points.
    I e-mailed XBox Live customer support who recommended I call the customer support phone number. I did so, but was frustrated when a duel language barrier — my East Coast Canadian & her –I believe– East Indian, made the end result for naught. I woman I spoke to was super duper nice, but kept thinking I was calling because I added points I didn’t want.
    Any help you –or anyone XBox Live related, would be GREATLY appreciated.
