    Twice a month, as long as you possibly can, lots of banter and exclusive announcements. Don’t forget a special guest here and there. :)

    Is it just me or does the last one not allow multiple choices? It says “Maximum number of choices allowed: 1″

    This all sounds great. Looking forward to the podcast and have checked out the games page a couple times. Awesome stuff.

    Indie Game spotlight, PlayXBLA Mondays highlights, listener submitted questions w/ responses and podcast contests would be neat-o.

    I’d like to second the PlayXBLA Monday Highlights, even though I haven’t been able to join I’d listen to things about them.

    Sans Gluten is on point with all of his suggestions… I think I would dig a spotlight or chatter on some older titles that people may have missed as well. There are so many great games on XBLA that there are bound to be some hot titles that people have overlooked in the past.

    Not saying that you should copy their format, but the Giant Bombcast does it right I think. The bulk of the podcast is spent casually talking about what they’re playing since the last show (which is mostly new releases, but occasionally older titles), and then they quickly recap news, talk about the week’s new releases and then answer a few listener emails. Granted, the banter usually takes their podcast past the two hour mark each week, but I wouldn’t expect an exact copy of that format.

      That’s GREAT feedback! Thanks!

    I would love to hear a spotlight segment, a segment on the most anticipated title of the week/month, announcements of upcoming titles or changes to existing titles, talk about what title has surprised/shocked you the most for the week/title, a mailbag where you answer listeners questions, and perhaps, like your cheev challenge, a podcat challenge where you challenge the community to do something non-achievement related each week.

    Getting community involvement only strengthens your podcast.

    +1 on Indie spotlights and highlighting of older games. There’s lots of good stuff already in the XBLA catalog, so we don’t always need to hear about the newest stuff because that’s already going to get plenty of promotion.

      Great Feedback! Thanks!

    I do listen to a decent amount of podcasts… Here are a couple things I like in my typical shows:

    1. Contests! This blog is AMAZING at giving out something every week. Why not usher in some questions for the show by providing a free XBLA code to anyone who has their question read on air? I guarantee you will get a LOT of community involvement and a ton of listeners!
    2. Building off of the first one, have community Q&A. It lets us get to know the hosts and makes us feel part of the show.
    3. Cover the XBLA releases for the week or for the next week (depending on when the podcast releases each week).
    4. Have a feature each week where you highlight an old favorite in the XBLA library. There are hundreds of games out there and most of us have probably only touched a small portion of them.
    5. My last little wish would be to have a community member spotlight. It gets done occasionally on the site, but how about each week a forum member can write in and get their gamertag read on air. It will help us flesh out our friends lists with people of similar interests.

    Just a couple thoughts. Hopefully this helps you out in the slightest bit. I can guarantee you that no matter what I will be downloading the first episode.
