DOUBLE JUMP: A Gaming Podcast with Patrick & LuckyGG

I’ve always wanted to start a gaming podcast and I finally got the opportunity to do so. I recorded a “test” episode with Yaqoub and Abdullah from Lucky Generation Gamers and it was an interesting experience where I learnt a lot. Originally we wanted the episode duration to be two hours at most. So I created a word document with an outline of what topics we’d discuss. Since this would be our introductory episode we wanted to have introductions to start things off, going through our history with video games, discussing our favorite consoles and games. Then we’d talk about games we’re currently playing before going onto news and a quick overlook over our favorite games of 2015.

That’s what we ended up doing but we went over the time limit we set ourselves by 50 minutes. So ultimately it could have been more structured. I personally should have discussed in detail why I liked Super Metroid or Legend of Zelda instead of wasting time listing consoles I’ve previously owned. In the end we spent 50 minutes discussing ourselves, but I think we could have cut that time in half if we used it more wisely.

We’re still trying to figure out the schedule for Double Jump, but we’re aiming to record an episode once a week and I think I’ll continue to write a short blogpost to accompany every episode we publish to discuss things I learnt or experienced before, while and after recording the show. This podcast is still very much a work in progress. We’re working on improving the podcast so constructive feedback is always welcome. Once we finalize everything our podcast will feature original music composed by Marskyera (who is the composer behind the indie game GNOG) and I’ll finally have a proper logo and branding designed.

    I used to listen to the LuckyGG podcast, at first it was very interesting to listen to Kuwaiti gamers, but once I got to listen to several episodes, the podcast began to be boring mainly for two reasons:

    1- They almost most of the time talk about a JRPGs and Anime and nostalgia.
    2- They don’t have time to play because of their personal lives, so they end up talking about old news and about the same games repetitively.\

    Now I know they try their best to appeal to all gamers, by not making a podcast about their main interests JRPGs and Anime, but considering their episodes are 3 hours, I’d rather listen to something fresh and up to date.

    If you would like to learn about podcast structure, I would recommend listening to DLC. It’s a 1 hour and half weekly gaming podcast that is very well structured.

      That’s an issue that they have, that they’re aware of and can’t seem to avoid.

      I’m still planning out Double Jump, but I want there to be a balance between new/modern games and nostalgia. I’m a big fan of nostalgia but I’ll be sure not to focus just on that. And whenever old games are discussed, I want it to be a unique discussion, or at least not something that has been repeated countless of times.

      And thanks for recommending DLC, I’ll be sure to check it out!

        Retro gaming and nostalgia are pretty much a trend the last couple of years that does not look to be slowing down. I believe you will find plenty of moments to discuss old games based on current news and game releases. Good luck!

        • Patrick says:

          I think it’s the trend because all the journalists are from a similar era to the one I’m from and our most memorable memories of video games is from that period. (That would actually be an interesting topic to discuss on a podcast).

          And thanks for the comment!

    This is awesome. I wish more of Kuwait would start podcasts.
