Radial Dialogue - New Morning Show from Shogun Gamer!

In the grand tradition of Monty Python: “And now for something completely different.

This year we want to try some new things at Shogun Gamer and a big fantasy we’ve always had (as a collective) was to produce more video content. Over the last few months we’ve been procuring the resources and even dabbled with a couple of test (live-streams of new/upcoming games). It feels like we can do more though, so starting next week we’re going to begin trials of things we think are good ideas to see how far they can go.

Radial Dialogue will be our first attempt at a video-centric show and features a “Morning Talk Show” motif. The show will feature the co-hosting talents of Jen Alaggia and myself and will run for about 30-45 minutes shortly after 9:00am (PST).

Part of the reason we haven’t done more video production, in the past, is that I’m a bit of a perfectionist and was hoping to recreate the imagery I had in my head on the screen. Unfortunately, we’re not at that place yet. So 2015 will be the year of discovery. We will try new things. We will shoot from the hip. Most importantly, we’ll have a whole heck of a lot of fun doing it.

Right now we don’t know what Radial Dialogue will become; the concept is really skeletal at the moment. Beyond being a “Morning Talk Show” about nerd-culture, featuring the writing staff of the site, we don’t know what it will become. That’s part of the fun. So if you’re interested in joining us on the quest to find a format, please do join us.

Shogun Gamer’s Radial Dialogue will premier next Monday (Feb. 23rd) at 9:15am (PST). We’re hoping to run it a couple of times per week (probably three times, Monday/Wednesday/Friday) though it may go on to become a daily affair (if the interest is there, both on your side and ours).

The show will premier first, in live-stream format, on Twitch (twitch.tv/ShogunGamer). If you want to join us there and be part of the conversation (via live-chat or social media) we’d love to get your feedback!

We’ll also be rebroadcasting the show on our YouTube page (if getting up for the live-stream doesn’t suit your style, but you still want to check it out). Comments there are also appreciated, seeing as we’re looking for this to be a really flexible show that feeds off the community and evolves over time.
