[AUDIO FEATURE] Metal Gear Solid V The Phantom Pain

10/24/2015 - Better late than never, the first Explosion of Happiness audio feature is dedicated to a comprehensive spoiler filled discussion about Metal Gear Solid V the Phantom Pain.  Feature hosted by Ryan and Andrew.  Intro and outro music composed by Harry Greg-Williams & Ludvig Forssell, Metal Gear Solid V OST.

Introducing "Audio Features"

Later this week we'll be premiering the first two Explosion of Happiness Audio Features on the feed.  These will be special recordings dedicated to a single subject such as a new video game release or a retrospective of an old video game.  The first feature will be dedicated to Metal Gear Solid V:  The Phantom Pain (better late than never), and the second feature will be dedicated to SOMA.

These features are meant to be listened to after completion of the game yourself, as they will be totally spoiler-filled.  As of now the goal is to put out one of these features a month as companion episodes to the main weekly podcast, however they will be produced less regularly.

10/15/2015 - The direct sequel to podcast episode one kicks off with some routine complaining about lazy QTE boss fights and intrusive in-game DLC advertisements.

10/10/2015 - The fateful moment has finally arrived.  The first Explosion of Happiness podcast has been published.  After some self-infatuation the game nuts dive straight into impressions on the Star Wars Battlefront Beta. SEGA's plan to bring "high quality" titles to PC.  Andrew's take on Wildstar now that it's free to play.  Tune in for this historic moment, where Ryan & Andrew make their first mark on the internet together.

Opening Show Soon

Explosion of Happiness 001 is finalized.  Making some final adjustments to the feed, hopefully this whole thing doesn't break when I try to upload the podcast.  Consider this post a final test.

Checking in

Yep it's still happening.  Andrew and I have been warming up with test podcasts.  Getting used to the recording and editing process, learning about audio equipment, improving charisma and yada yada.  I'm gunning to release our first official podcast soon, next Monday if all goes well, but that's no guarantee.  It's a matter of how good our content quality is by then.  We're now up on iTunes and YouTube, all subscriby ready and whatnot.
