Welcome to Gamers With Jobs Radio, the video gaming podcast for people who hate podcasts. This week Shawn interviews Bioware's Jay Watamaniuk about their upcoming games Mass Effect and Dragon Age. Plus we'll take a look at Spartan: Total Warrior, Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones and More! Load it up and turn it on. It only feels dirty for a minute.

Comments

Great interview. By the by, I managed to score a video of their chat through some sources of mine in Canada. Take a sneak peak:

"So, what is Mass Effect aboot?"

Brilliant!

I was sort of more envisioning something like this:

Way to score the interview! Makes for a meaty show.

I'm looking forward to both Dragon Age and Mass Effect. I would of liked to hear more about the multiplayer components to DA. On top of co-op they mention competitive play modes on their website. Plus, no obligatory question about when it'll be released? It's your first interview, we'll let it slide this time.

I was looking at an EGM mag and saw Mass Effect in there. I was impressed with what little they showed and talked about, like facial expressions to let other players know how you feel. It's really too bad it's atleast a year away.

Excellent interview with Bioware, candid and actually informative. Great questions.

I'm really surprised that Gametab or someone else hasn't linked to the Podcast yet. Getting some of the guys from Bioware on a podcast is a huge exclusive! Great work on the interview, can't wait for more.

My fault. Apparently I missed some kind of deadline or something. I should be fired.

Get some guy from Nintendo. That Reggie guy sounds like a character. You may need to make up some hit statistics to do this one.

I enjoyed the podcast, good work.

I don't tend to pimp content until around 11PM or midnight so we hit the morning news cycle, this show was a bit tardy so I held off until last night. Truly, a chilling insight into a something no one probably cared about to begin with

That part had me laughing too

Nice interview. I'm definitely interested in Mass Effect.

Good job on the show as always.

The story of Fletcher's mid-game CIV IV crash was priceless. And the Jay Watamaniuk interview was simply terrific. Stellar work, I loved the show!

As a service to the GWJ members who prefer for their podcasts to be boiled into a single sentence I'm instituting a "Justin McElroy Memorial GWJ Radio Quote of the Episode Award."

Here's this week's winner:

"We left the spigot on! The bathtub's overflowing...with Germans!"

Congratulations.

Fancy Podcast links added!

I finally got a chance to listen to the show. What's with all the game-talk?

But seriously folks, the interview was impressive and the Fletcher/Certis banter highly amusing and subtly erotic [bathtub full of Germans] as always! Great work guys.

...ooooh, shiny podcast clicky thingies...

Um did someone leave a formatting tag open? All of a sudden I'm feeling way to centered.

Radio has that effect on people. You'll soon find that you no longer have trouble paying bills, women just "want to talk to you" and a great many of life's mysteries seem far less complex. We don't even charge extra for that. It's our gift to you.
