With absolutely all due respect to the previous hosts, I have to say that this new “first” episode of TLDL was superb! I cannot believe you have Elrar hosting! How cool is that?!!! Very cool. Both of these guys sound like total professionals. It was like listening to a radio program. Really, you have elevated podcasting with this one episode, Chris. Trion’s loss is our gain.
I cannot wait for the next episode. My only gripe is that Too Long Didn’t Listen is Too Short!
Totally agree. I love Chris, Harry, the Pantless Wonder, etc., but this new show is great!
And the best part is that you can still listen to both!
Great job, guys! Very entertaining. Great to see Elrar back in front of a mic, and Brian was great as well.
Shifting gears, Brian’s opinion on off-gender characters is horribly sexist. He “just wants a thing” to be in control of, and it better be a “hot chick”? Really? And you wonder why women get frustrated with the gaming community?
It is exactly as sexist as wanting to drive a red car, control a green army, or roll an asian character. Gaming is different than storytelling, in that we are projecting a fantasy to ourselves of what we want to see… and I’ll stand behind my claim that there’s absolutely nothing wrong with me wanting to see a narrative of “attractive female kills things.”
