WiserTime added a topic in Video GamesGreg Sewart's all-time best racing games (Part 1)Hiya gang. Our favorite Canadian racing expert weighed in on the best racers of the NES, Sega, and Sega CD era on GamesRadar. Right here:
Part 2 is next week, along with a podcast of the whole interview. He's a great interview - and man does he know his stuff.
Many thanks to Greg for letting me spend a couple of hours with him. Thank God (for me and the column, that is) the rest of the P1P crew doesn't let him talk about this stuff!

WiserTime added a topic in IntroductionsThank you, Player One Podcast(from the GAF thread I started)
I love the Player One Podcast.
I’ve recently begun podcasting for work, and it amazes me how much time, effort, and skill it takes to actually produce an entertaining podcast. Believe me, it ain’t easy. Getting people in place with the right gear, having an interesting dialogue, then editing and publishing your work is a giant pain in the neck even in the best of circumstances.
The gang at POP has managed to do this for a staggering 170-plus consecutive weeks!
Each and every week, CJ, Phil, Sewart, and Ford manage to put together the most enjoyable, relaxed, and downright fun-to-listen-to ‘cast and make it sound easy.
Sure, they may not always talk about the latest games. Considering that everyone else does, that’s actually kind of nice. I enjoy the fact that they’re playing games that came out more than a week or so ago, because normal people like me (with jobs and kids and other responsibilities) can’t possibly keep up with all the new stuff that comes out these days.
Sure, they may skew heavily towards anime, Japanese themes, and platformers. What’s funny is that I don’t normally go for most genres they do. Yet I still love the show. Plus, you can always count on Sewart to weigh in on racers and Ford to occasionally pipe up about sports titles. At some point, each and every kind of game is mentioned.
CJ – how I love your unabashed love for Apple; your utter inability to come close to finishing (almost) any game; your disdain of podcast editing contrasted with your unwavering commitment to producing POP every week.
Phil – how I love your obstinate refusal to beat Mega Man 9; your incomprehensible dissection of Japanese animation minutae; your gleeful, ignorant hatred of all things sports; and your open disdain of Greg Ford.
Sewart – as a fellow Dad of a toddler, how I love your sharing of video games with your kids; your loathing of online multiplayer; your unapologetic defense of Motherland Canada; and your hockey prowess.
Ford – how I love your refusal to quit the POP despite Phil’s continuing abuse; your widely varying tastes and opinions; your co-ed beer parties, and steadfast desire to make everyone else wait to record while you wrap up a few rounds of Modern Warfare.
Thanks, POP, for being the best podcast out there. Keep it up few decades, if ya don’t mind.
