Save TWiT Game On!
Some of you might be familiar with the TWiT podcast network featuring TechTV alums like Leo Laporte, Sarah Lane, and Tom Merritt. They recently built a new studio and decided to do a highly-produced gaming show called Game On! hosted by Veronica Belmont (formerly of Qore on PSN) and Brian Brushwood (Scam School). It's a pretty darn good show, and has a lot more substance than your X-Plays or Attack of the Shows.
Unfortunately it's also expensive for TWiT to produce and after 13 weeks downloads haven't been great. As of now it has been cancelled, but Leo has said that if they get 50,000 downloads this week he will bring it back. It's a fun show and I think /r/gaming would really enjoy it. They've interviewed gaming greats like Notch, Gary Whitta, Felicia Day, and Tim Schafer. It's a good show that might be cut short just when it's getting it's legs.
How can you help? Just go to the TWiT page or iTunes and subscribe. The new episode should be posted tomorrow and in the meantime check out the interview Gamespy's Dan Stapleton about Sim City 5 from last week's episode.
Please help save a cool, independent gaming podcast made by gamers for gamers.
Hey folks! We're trying to save Game On, which is part of the TWiT network. We're loyal fans and there's a reddit thread promoting the campaign to save it. It seems to be working so far. Has been bumped to the top 10 of iTunes. Thanks!
