TGO Update


How’s it going everybody, Adrian Simple here from The Gaming Observer, for Sunday August 11, 2019. Normally on Sundays I go over the biggest game releases of the last week, but you know what, I’ve talked about most of them on the daily updates already. So instead, we’re gonna do something I haven’t done in a long time, and do an update on the Observer. It’ll be the same length as your daily update, except I have a few announcements to make. Let’s get into this, for a transcript.

Okay here’s the biggest thing I wanted to talk about today. My partner in crime Shelby has gotten a new part time job, which means she now works Saturday evenings. This was usually our date night, and the single evening that I took off from the Obsever each week. That’s actually the reason why Sundays are dedicated to the weekly game releases, because I can record it any time. So now we’ve been robbed of our usual date night, and we’re hoping to move it to Fridays. The reason why this concerns you is because not only was the Saturday our original date night, it’s also a day where basically no news comes out in the gaming sphere. So essentially, the schedule for you is going to change to news from Monday to Friday and then special recordings on weekends. I hope you understand, but unfortunately this is a one-man show, I can only do so much. Plus I think this is going to be beneficial for my mental health in the long run anyway, especially because school will be starting up again, and having the extra free day for homework will help out a lot. So I’m thinking Sundays will stay as the weekly game releases, and I’ll figure out Saturdays once we get there. I have a few ideas in my head that I’m actually kind of excited for, but I think I want it centered around some kind of interactivity with listeners.

I figured you’d be interested in hearing about how well this show has been doing in the last few weeks. I shared super in-depth numbers with my Patreon supporters, but I can give you a brief overview here. Basically, a lot of you are tuning in because of Amazon Prime Day, and that really reflects in the daily listenership. Basically before the sale started on July 15th, I was averaging between 800 and 900 listeners per weekday. Then a real spike hit afterwards, where it seems like it’s settled between 1100 and 1200 listeners. So a big thanks to the few hundred of you that have joined us, I hope the show has been beneficial to your routines, and I hope you stick around. I’ve also got a tremendous amount of Amazon reviews since Prime Day, to the point that it was hard for me to keep up with them. So thank you so much for your support with that, it seriously makes me feel so nice that the work I’m putting in is benefitting you all.

And the last super quick thing I want to mention here is that next week I’m going to be interviewed by Chris Filip of Game Anglia. Check out the pinned tweet on my Twitter for more details @gaming_observer, but basically it’s going to be live, and questions are going to be asked of me. You might find some interest in that.

Okay that’s going to be all for today! As this is a Sunday I will be back tomorrow with the news, and until then…Happy Gaming everyone.
