GTD Weekly: February 19 - 25, 2012

News isn't the norm here on Gamers with Jobs, but it's about to be. I've been producing the Gamers with Jobs Conference Call for closing in on two years, and as you've probably heard at the end of every podcast, I also cover game news on a daily basis over at Game Thing Daily. Now, Game Thing Daily content is coming to Gamers with Jobs with the launch of a new weekly video show.

GTD Weekly takes the stories from Game Thing Daily, converts them into moving images and audio, and magically shows up on YouTube. The show will go live every Saturday and will be right here on the front page to help you catch up on the week's news in a succinct 5 minute episode.

Take a look, let us know what you think, and I'll see you back here next Saturday.

Excellent start! Glad to see it on the site.

I like the 5 minute format. Like others, I somehow missed the Borderlands 2 trailer, so was glad you brought it to my attention.

If anything, I would say you could possibly even condense the stories a tiny bit more and squeeze in a few extra news items.

I blame 'Favorite Topics' for missing out on new topics. As I keep returning to just the fav topics mostly....must change that bad habit.

We've got some pretty neat stuff on this front page. You should check it out!

My god what a horrible video. Totally a waste of time, I want my five minutes back. It was bad and you should feel bad for making it.

That is what I would have said if I didn't enjoy it and wasn't looking forward to more. I like the length and smooth production values. Thumbs up!

So, uh, what about TWA? There's something actually releasing this week, right?

Disclaimer: I can't do audio at work so I didn't bother with the video yet.

Hey Chaos, glad you enjoyed it. The concept is built on covering the stories from Game Thing Daily which does 1 story a day, but I have thought about way of getting a bit more content in there. The format will surely evolve over time. Thanks for the input.

This is a great idea. Thanks for doing this Jonathan.

I think the site's RSS feed hits everything that gets posted in Front Page you could try that too

Yep, I can confirm this. That's how I keep track of GWJ for the most part myself. (And the eventual trip to the forums, of course )
