Radio didn’t kill the Lazygamer star

If you don’t follow us on twitter (and by the way, you should), or you were just busy/preoccupied on Sunday, you might have missed hearing me talk about gaming on the radio.  Never fear!  We have a recording for your listening pleasure.

I was quite lucky to get to chat to KB on 5FM last Sunday (Youth Day and Father’s Day together).  Every Sunday at 15:40 he does a quick special on gaming, and this time he brought on an expert.  We were very happy to be a part of the segment, and will hopefully get to do it again soon.

For those who don’t want to play the audio, or who don’t like the sound of my voice, we essentially discussed the launch of the PS4 and some highlights from E3.  I wonder what it says when mainstream media doesn’t even want to discuss the Xbox One.

Wielding my lasso of truth, I am the combination of nerd passion and grammar nazi. I delve into all things awesome and geek-tastic. I believe people should stop defining themselves and just enjoy playing games, so let's get on with it!
  • Lardus

    iFrame fail lol. Will have a listen soon :)

  • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

    I shall have a listen at home. Forget my headphones today. Drat.

    Also, the link seems to be bust :(

  • CaptainNemo42

    First off. Who is KB?

    And what expert. I didn’t speak to no one. I was at home. Playing The Last of Us

    • TechniKyle

      Kyle Boshoff :P

      • CaptainNemo42

        Aww Snap!

  • Hammersteyn

    That’s it Zoe lure more meat to the grinder. Also this true at the moment….

    • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

      Boycott!!!!!! hahahaha

    • Lord Chaos

      LOL. Great end to the day.

    • Argentil

      Lol, this is funny. I started the week pitying the Xbox One fanbase, but there has been a turnaround (or shall I say… 180 hurr-hurr). So the balance should be somewhat restored in the coming weeks.

      • Hammersteyn

        It should and I am truly happy. A two or three horse race always assures more quality for the consumers.

        • Argentil

          Yup-yup. If one of the big three falls, it’ll affect us all negatively. If that were to happen, who do you think would rise up and make a new console? Samsung?

          • Hammersteyn

            Why not, they already have the motion controlled TV up and running. Maybe Apple will have another go?

          • Argentil

            I think they’re still nursing that burn, they have no faith in the hardcore demographic. I believe they think casual, accessible, light gaming is the future. They’re not entirely wrong, but I think the popularity of gaming-lite will dip slightly before it stabilises.

            Edit: And there will always be a place for deeper, more hardcore experiences.

    • CaptainNemo42

      One day you’re going to get comment of the week for these pictures and “Jifs” that you post.

    • Rinceyouropinion

      WIN brother! You win gif of the week!

    • Zoe

      So not my fault!! he asked the questions, i just answered!

      • Argentil

        Pity the interview didn’t happen AFTER the DRM 180.

      • Rinceyouropinion

        Hahah! It was awesome, well done :)

      • Hammersteyn

        Don’t worry, we will wait patiently.

    • Rinceyouropinion

      Damn you Hammer, I can’t stop watching this and giggling like a girl behind my laptop!

      • Hammersteyn

        I want to watch this movie again. How gatvol must you be to just fall out of the car.

        • Rinceyouropinion

          Yeah, not even willing to jump, just ‘slouch to death’

          • LordCaptainAwesomeness

            What movie are this? Missed it I have

          • Rinceyouropinion

            I think Crazy stupid love, may be wrong? @hammersteyn:disqus

          • Hammersteyn

            Right you are. Uless he played in another movie staring Julianne Moore

          • Its Just a Ride

            Crazy, Stupid, Love

          • TechniKyle

            Then you’re gonna LOVE my little accident. I’ll tell you over coffee! :P

  • Lardus

    A bit of an echo in some places…but overall good.

  • Trebzz

    I fapped to this american voice

    • Hammersteyn

      lol wut?

    • Zoe

      • Rinceyouropinion

        +1 to that NSA list I mentioned. Fear not thee!

    • http://www.twitter.com/WobblyOnion Exalted Overlord Geoffrey Tim

      CREEPER.

      • Trebzz

        I am offended by that :P

        • Argentil

          And so you should be.

    • Rinceyouropinion

      0-O

    • Argentil

      Not particularly funny, faceless internet person.

  • TechniKyle

    EDIT: You know what, fuck it, I was trying to be nice, but nice apparently isn’t a good thing. I’m going now, Bye.

    • Argentil

      It’s hard not to label you as a creeper for saying that, but know that I’m trying.

      • Dean

        Creeper? Don’t get too close or he might explode…

      • TechniKyle

        Urgh, fine, I’ll just stop complimenting people, because apparently it’s bad.

        • Argentil

          Don’t worry man, I was joking :)
          A little self-awareness is a good thing though! Personal compliments over the internet often go wrong.

          • TechniKyle

            I’m actually furious and took it very deep and very personal. Trebzz says he “Fapped to this American voice” but I get labelled the Creep? Sure that was meant in jest, but surely mine was meant with sincerity. And try better to cover up an insult with “Don’t worry man, I was joking.”

          • Argentil

            It wasn’t a cover, and it was a joke. I assume most people on the internet are resilient to my humour. I apologise though.

            As for the fapping comment. I didn’t actually realise it was directed at Zoe, haven’t heard the clip. I would have made a comment though.

          • TechniKyle

            Apology accepted.

          • Trebzz

            Trebzz can be anyone lol

      • Weanerdog

        Don’t worry about Kyle, he is just been sweet.

    • Zoe

      I missed the compliment and only got the edit :( show me the awesome creepy nice-ness! :)

      • Argentil

        It wasn’t actually creepy, hopefully he’ll come back.

      • TechniKyle

        *Arms self with shotguns loaded with cactus plants* I said: “You’ve got such a pretty voice. It’s how I imagined an elf or a fairy to sound. :)”

        • Argentil

          I was about to quote you as having said: “Your voice sounds like that of an angel, and calms wailing babes. Its resonance revitalises me.”

          Yours sounded less creepy, so good thing you came back.

        • Zoe

          *blushes* so sweet!! don’t let other people get to you, that’s really nice! *takes over shotguns with cacti* i’ll defend you from the trolls ;)

          • Argentil

            Oh, I’m a troll now? I’ll just go find a bridge to hide under while I cry. That hurts. A troll? Wow. Wow, Zoe, not kewl. Like Jakster? Really? Maaan. That’s mean… MEANIE.

            You’re a troll :<

          • Zoe

            *shoots with cactus* pew pew! :) now cheer up and everyone just play nice and be happy – it’s FRIDAY!!

          • Argentil

            Or IS IT? I won’t fall for that, troll-lady.

            *sniff* :,(

        • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

          That’s actually nice. Don’t let people drag you down dude. Keep being awesome!

    • Jakster

      There’s no room for nice anymore on LG. Most of the regulars have left.

      • Argentil

        Which regulars?

        • Rinceyouropinion

          He’s a troll don’t feed it!

          • TechniKyle

            Yes, if their name is grey, look away. (That rhymed! :D)

          • Rinceyouropinion

            + Or you may be led astray? (too much?)

          • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

            Lol

          • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

            You’re a poet! Did you know it?

          • Argentil

            Meowth, that’s right!

    • http://www.twitter.com/WobblyOnion Exalted Overlord Geoffrey Tim

      I saw the original post, and I thouyght it was sweet.

  • Rinceyouropinion

    Dammit, I missed this! You need to send me a personal tweet Zoe, and email, and pigeon, facebook message and letter, smoke clouds and Darryns still beating heart and I will be there!

  • John Ambitious

    Not sure how I feel about the background music…

  • Rinceyouropinion

    Dk is a bit of an odd one. ‘Hot on everyone’s MIND?’ I believe the saying is lips buddy… I can’t actually listen to him as he spends 8% of the time laughing at his own jokes…

    • Hammersteyn

      I like DJ Fresh’s laughter more.

      • Rinceyouropinion

        Yeah, at least it sounds ‘real’. Also DK spends too much time doing things like ‘Yeeeeeeaaaaaaaha, sooooooo, what about thaaaaaaat’… I mean, He’s talking to Zoe, who has pink hair, and he sounds about as excited as the prospect of having bleach flush out your nether regions!

        • Zoe

          LOL! in fact, the hair is going purple tonight! :)

          • Hammersteyn

            Nice. Wish I had hair left…

          • Rinceyouropinion

            I expect updated picture! (and not in a creepy way!)

          • Zoe

            or video, i suppose :P

          • Rinceyouropinion

            Mmm, I’m not so sure. I had to forward some names to the NSA after the last one ;) Kidding. I really like the integration of video into LG, as long as one can offer a transcript for those stuck in offices without access to youtube. Also, if you can persuade Darryn to wear a bag, (just saw his tweet, we can meet both ways, he can wear a bane mask) that would be super :)

      • Gareth L

        Not as much as Fresh loves laughing at his own jokes… Wow, I can’t stand that guy. Possibly the most fake person on the radio.

        • Hammersteyn

          Yeah he does that sometimes, ag to each his own. I wish Gareth was rather on in the afternoon.

  • HvR

    Nice interview Zoe, got the feeling that the DJ has no idea what is going on the gaming community.

    Much better than CapeTalk 567′s take on E3 last week Friday.

    Their “tech expert” talked about how cool the Xbone is with all its cool features and how everybody loved it especially gamers and the cool TV features and how its integrated with DSTV (???) and the ordering system and how people is going o buy it in November in SA (??) because they already have so much Xbox360 games to play on it.

    • Rinceyouropinion

      I gladly missed that. 567 know most of their stuff, games, no. It’s like they’ve walked into Cavendish and found the first 16 year old in the gaming section of Look and Listen offered them a job.

      • HvR

        Actually sent them a mail to either leave the subject alone since I think most of their listeners are not interested or get someone who know their subject matter and sent them links to lazygamer, mweb’s gamer site or even to use mybb

        • Rinceyouropinion

          Good to head. It makes them look stupid. In all other things (except for when Solly was around) they are pretty much top of their game, funny it should be games that make them look like noobs.

  • Umar Kiiroi Senk?

    Awesome :)

  • Umar Kiiroi Senk?

    Let’s All just be nice and be friends, Leave the darkness behind and embrace life together, we’re all pals and all gamers … let the love spread (Not like a STD) … PEACE everyone … PEACE

    I see trees of green,
    red roses too.
    I see them bloom,
    for me and you.
    And I think to myself,
    what a wonderful world.

    I see skies of blue,
    And clouds of white.
    The bright blessed day,
    The dark sacred night.
    And I think to myself,
    What a wonderful world.

    The colors of the rainbow,
    So pretty in the sky.
    Are also on the faces,
    Of people going by,
    I see friends shaking hands.
    Saying, “How do you do?”
    They’re really saying,
    “I love you”.

    I hear babies cry,
    I watch them grow,
    They’ll learn much more,
    Than I’ll ever know.
    And I think to myself,
    What a wonderful world.

    Yes, I think to myself,
    What a wonderful world.

    Oh yeah.

    • Rinceyouropinion

      Fuck that, “ROAAAR! I will wear your insides tonight CoD players, and then Shall force your mothers and sisters to make me TEA! Yes, TEEEEAAA! GWAAAAAA! Ahem.

      • Umar Kiiroi Senk?

        Comon man … I’m trying to bring balance to the Feng shui

        • Rinceyouropinion

          Hahaha, sorry man, I shall edit it accordingly. You did ask nicely…

          • Umar Kiiroi Senk?

            LOL *Bow Head* thank you sir Rince…doubt anyone will care lol

          • Rinceyouropinion

            Don’t thank me quite yet…

          • Umar Kiiroi Senk?

            I swear If I see another video from you I’m going to Liu-kang you! ayayayayayayayayayayayay

          • Rinceyouropinion

            Mwahahahahahahahah! Troll level OVER 9000!

      • Rinceyouropinion

        @b80348306eb32d8844c0398d15132a5d:disqus To make the world a better place…

        • Umar Kiiroi Senk?

          Why you ……… bah! Who am I kidding . It’s funny as hell XD

  • Spathi

    I don’t like KB. In fact, I dislike him.

    Zoe, you are a damn natural. Sounded more professional and composed than the interviewer! Well done.

    • Rinceyouropinion

      With you on that. He irks me something terrible. A weak voice for radio.

    • Umar Kiiroi Senk?

      Agree well done Zoe … you do now we want a video/pod cast every week. it’s in the contract.

      • Argentil

        Good idea. However often is viable though, even if it’s once a month.

        • Umar Kiiroi Senk?

          True, so there you have it Zoe, the tribe has spoken

      • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

        I agree!

  • Anon A Mouse

    Zoe who taught you to speaka da Engrish? Lurve da accent though.

    • http://www.twitter.com/WobblyOnion Exalted Overlord Geoffrey Tim

      Zoe’s from New York, and thus a bona-fide MURICAN. Which explains why her English is so poor. ;)

  • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

    I gotta admit. The accent took me by surprise :) Very cool that you were on the radio. Bravo Zoe!

  • hairyknees

    Well done Zoe, you did superbly! :)

  • http://lazygamer.net/ OVG

    Good one :)
