Hello, forum members! Several AC fans and myself have been discussing off-forums the idea of creating an Assassin’s Creed focused podcast with the general purpose of discussing Assassin’s Creed trending topics and debates with the diverse Assassin’s Creed fan community. This came about when Quirky and I expressed interest in furthering our engagements with other active forum members and the insightful debates that result from it. Ideally, we’d like to host a short podcast discussing AC news, the future direction of AC, and general thoughts on a specified subject with selected guest active forum members. Quirky will co-host with me. This would take place possibly on a Twitch stream or Youtube video. If you are interested in this idea, please do speak up. If you would like to contribute to the podcast via guest discussion or recommend someone to contribute, mention it below.

We have several AC forumers in mind already. We wanted those who are active, post insightful arguments, and have varied views to prompt discussion. Our list of possible guests so far:


SixKeys sama

Farlander senpai

Pacmanate

Assassin_M kun

RinoTheBouncer

Hans684

LoyalACFan

wvostlzing

KEVT2011 kun

Mega_Doux sama

Bmark94

AssassinHMS senpai

Ureh

Shahkulu101

Mr.Black24

I-Like-Pie45

If you are listed here, please PM/ADD me or comment below if you are interested or unable to attend. No official schedule has been posted as of yet. Communications would take place via Skype.

Let us know if you guys are interested in the idea. We want to spark life back into the community and thought this would be a good way of doing it. :o

Sounds cool. :) What kind of topics are you thinking of covering? (Not expecting an actual list, just some rough ideas maybe.)

Would be cool if we could get some special guests like Darby-senpai, though that may be too much to hope for. Maybe Loomer, if he has the time?

WE ARE NOT WORTHY

The idea was to get reception of the games specifically from the community. Having a developer kind of defeats the purpose. But maybe as a special occasion if one is generous enough.

And maybe after I leave the hospital after suffering a heart attack from the idea of speaking to senpai

loomer is still technically just a fan and not an official Ubi member so maybe.

You guys could try and get some community managers to guest.

Gabe, Esco or Shade perhaps. It would be a great way for them to interact with the community.

I actually recommended you, but our list was getting too long and fatal wanted to see what the forumers wanted.

That being said being able to guest is very likely if we manage to get this all set up.

We just want to know who is available/interested and will work around that.

Oh and for the list, if anyone would like to hear a suggestion, we can do rotations. Like I know not everyone can host and talk. Some might be too sick or too busy, some of us can step in. Maybe we can form a group, like a group one for this week and a group two for the next? Just an idea, if anyone else wants to add on, its good. Guest starring can work too!

We pay attention to those who contribute, no matter how low the post count ;)

The idea was each podcast would have 1 or 2 guests and we'd rotate each episode.

It's important to hone in on each individual fan's opinion.

Here's a conceptual "logo" as you say. Will go in front of the videos. The final version will have special bar effects like in the Unity ads. Can't show it here because gifs downgrade quality significantly.

Thanks bruh.

On closer inspection, while the "Assassin's Creed" part of the logo definitely began as Trajan, it's been quite heavily modified. I thought they'd just adjusted the serifs, the apostrophe and the bars on the As, but it goes quite a bit further than that with stroke thicknesses.

Still, I think the sub-headings are just Trajan, or at least Trajan still works fine with the main logo. Here's how it looks with "Community Podcast" written in that font:

http://i.imgur.com/1HcYLPJ.jpg

Kerning (letter-spacing) looks weird with this font due to the mix of fat and narrow letters, so a word like "Podcast" is always going to look strange (narrow P, fat O/D/C, narrow A/S).

I like this one, the compactness of it make it seem a lot bigger even when it isn't
But I think merging this with the background of Quirky's would be the best option

Love it but I've never used Twitch and don't have a YouTube account. So I've no idea how to enter the podcast but to give the idea a bigger horizon someone could have a twitter named the same and give updates/hits(Ubi style) and someone have a YouTube account with the podcasts and some Ubi vids like trailers etc...The bigger the horizon, the bigger reach and a bigger mark left by fans. It might get the general fan voices heard better.

JustPlainQuirky
02-07-2015, 04:35 PM
I wanted to include Aveline but she doesn't have a CGI trailer and it really stood out awkwardly.

Adewale had little to work with as most of his "CGI" was actually live action and really contrasted.

Shao Jun has no CGI trailer.

Picked ACB Ezio instead of AC2 Ezio because it was a bit too dark in AC2 trailer and the actions didnt match with the other characters

and dont worry this is just one of the many intros. Others will be showcased too :)

GunnerGalactico
02-07-2015, 08:07 PM
I like the video. It makes sense that we have all characters that appeared in the main games for main consoles/PC. I would've liked to have seen more of Arno, though. (when I said that, I meant more video clips of course :p)

SixKeys
02-07-2015, 09:35 PM
Maybe you could use a few seconds clip from this Aveline trailer?

There's some CGI stuff at the end here for Adewale:

3-4 guests per episode is a lot. Does that include Fatal and Quirky as hosts? That would mean 6 people all trying to have their say. I think 2 guests plus 2 hosts would be better. Wouldn't run out of guests so quickly either.

Our current plan is to do something... different. From what I understand, our podcast will be split up into sequences. Each is with a different guest and topic.

I don't know how I feel about that yet. 2 guests and a bunch of topics was what I originally intended, but we'll see.

Well, I might be persuaded as long as I'm not the only guest on the first show. :p

Personally I prefer the idea of 2 guests and a bunch of different topics than with one topic each. On a wide variety of topics everyone will find something to say, but if you just have one topic per episode, you run the risk of dead air.

"So, yearly releases: good or bad?"
-Bad.
-Bad.

Haha, yeeeep. That's why I'm still contemplating.

We were planning on throwing different topics at each guest, but there's still some issues. One of them being that our guest won't get to discuss it with each other.

Nope, just a decent mic that doesn't have noticeable background noises. Turtle beach or whatever, it's all good.

I use Audacity for single recordings but it's a pain in the arse to setup for group calls. Apparently it works best if everyone records their own vocals separately and that's definitely not going to happen.

I'm looking into Callnot and Call Graph since they're dedicated Skype recorders. If all goes well, the recordings will be setup through one of them and the editing with be done using Audacity.

It will make the podcast a much more pleasant listening experience if you don't record everybody through Skype at once. The best thing would be to record your hosts as cleanly as you can direct to PC, and mix the other callers from Skype. It'll sound a lot more like a proper radio show that way, and it also helps for the listeners to understand who is talking in a given moment.

podcast rehersals are going smoothly.

RinoTheBouncer and Assassin_M are confirmed first guests.

Arrangements are being made for Sixkeys and Farlander to be second episode guests assuming all goes well first episode.

Talks about Goldenboy and Shahklulu in third episode being discussed.

However we are having difficulties with quality recording software. If anyone has recommendations for good recording software for skype calls, please do share with us.

No personal experience with this one, so I can't vouch for it, but it sounds good from the list of features mentioned here (http://thenextweb.com/apps/2011/02/09/5-great-ways-to-record-skype-calls/):

http://voipcallrecording.com/

"MP3 Skype Recorder [Win] is like Pamela and allows you to record calls you make using Skype (http://www.skype.com). It’s features include:



It’s absolutely free with no limits attached.

Automatic or manual recording capabilities.
Compact format of stored records (mp3 files).
May be used to record P2P, SkypeOut (http://voipcallrecording.com/skypeout) calls and calls made to Online number (http://voipcallrecording.com/skype_online_number).

Can split the caller and the person called into different tracks, saving it separately
Easy integration with Skype Conference recording.
Intuitive easy to use interface.

It is made for Windows users and the software is aimed for professional recordings of Skype conversations. Which is great when you need to keep track of phone conversations, either by legal requirements, or for job security. It works in the background and begins to record conversations automatically at the exact moment they start. However you can also record conversations manually, which is better for me. All the recordings are stored in convenient MP3, OGG, WMA or WAV format. The software integrates seamlessly with Skype and has better design and usability then Pamela. MP3 Skype Recorder hits all my needs for VoIP recording."

A couple of first impressions:

You might want to edit your questions down to a very lean and concise format. The longer you take to ask a question, the longer the interlocutor is inclined to pause, and the more hesitant the answer is likely to get. I think the 'tempo' of your questions should push people into 'thinking out loud' -- that, I imagine, would result in a more fluent/flowing broadcast, as well as extract more ideas from the guests.

Honestly, some of the questions felt like you were trying to steer Kiwi into a certain opinion. Maybe because they were overly specific and detailed and, like others mentioned, long. I'm pretty sure that if questions will be shorter and more concise then it won't feel that way.

JustPlainQuirky
02-11-2015, 12:37 AM
The purpose for some questions was to inject a differing view point (i.e. devil's advocate) to promote discussion. By no means is it an attempt to force an opinion. No questions were loaded or arguably biased.

But some questions were formed poorly in the sense that they were improv and thus structured often incoherently. I apologize. I am not a native english speaker and having shorter questions is a good suggestion.

In addition, these were just random questions on the spot for audio testing purposes. It was never meant to be uploaded and mostly done for the luls. I am not even the one asking the questions in the final version. That will be fatal.

Appreciate the critique regardless.

That was all improvs so we just said what was on our minds. It was to test the mic/recording quality, foremost.

I'm sorry if it felt like we were one-sided, that's everything I'm trying to not do. It's why we will take topics from the forums instead of making up our own, it's why we will question the guests together instead of separately, and it's why we chose from a varied amount of guests who shares different opinions. Quirky and I, TBH, share VERY different opinions with the franchise. =p


I thought she was like 18? She sounds closer to my age (30-ish). Hope she doesn't take that as an insult, it's not meant to be. :p

She is 18. From your voice, I thought you were in your early 20s. =p

Nope, everything won't be scripted. I mean, we still need to script stuff like the intro.

ex: ''What's up guys, it's Fatal-Feit of Ubi Forums here! I am joined by co-host Just. Plain. Quirky. The quirkiest of the quirk.'' Etc, etc, etc. =p

I think both of you are perfectly fine -- not just in terms of diction, intonation, etc., but also in the way you articulate what you want to say. (Without butchering up the language, e.g. by interjecting a 'like' every 3 words.)

One thing that really irritates me on podcasts is that the hosts, and the guests alike, seem SCARED to make a *serious* point, or utter a *well formed* sentence, without sandwiching it between pathetically flat attempts at 'witticism', or a lame jokes -- all in an effort to make sure the listener (whose span of attention is about 4-5 words per sentence) stays on the channel, and doesn't go elsewhere for his/her lighthearted 'fun'. I'm really glad to see that that's not your attitude at all.

It's fun to listen to you guys just shooting the breeze. I hope the show retains this sort of freeflow format. Your hosting is fine, Fatal. :) Like wvstolzing said, you and Quirky have clear voices and diction, you're not rushing your words so the conversation is easy to follow. The mic quality on the guests was a bit poor, but there's not much you can do about that.

I have a Pakeha (European NZ) accent, not a stereotypical Maori accent, which confuses foreigners for some reason

I thought you were either American or British, like most people here. I can't really tell the difference between NZ and Australian accents, so I wasn't sure when you started talking.

The Australian accent is as if every word is spoken in a very clear and loud way
Whereas the Pakeha accent is more of a smooth, monotone mumble

And the Maori accent is something different entirely...

Does anyone here have all the CGI trailers in uncompressed HD? By all, I don't mean just the E3 cinematic trailers. Dead Kings, Freedom Cry, 3's cinematic TV, Black Flag's Tattoo, Unity's Make History trailers, everything.

I'm looking into creating some content for the podcast and it would help tremendously if one of you could let me download your trailers off Dropbox or something.

Yep, it's where I would normally go to get uncompressed game trailers, but for some reason they took down all of the downloads for ACs. Dunno if it was recent or not.

I also tried GT but quality wasn't on par and a lot of the trailers, like AC1 and AC2, could not be downloaded.

I don't know if Recent Threads is a good recurring idea. There are downtimes in the forums when nothing much is happening and not all topics are equally interesting. I think general topics would be better, like "What do you think of modern day", "Which group would you side with", "What do you think of Initiates" etc.

If you guys want, I can help advertise this on Tumblr. Many people there have excellent discussions and thoughts about the series, such as the stance on the Modern Day story, Connor's much needed closure, Victory, ect. and hearing them being talked about in a louder voice through an actual fan based community based podcast, instead of developers and voice actors, is the ticket for them! Hell, I can probably a poster artwork for you guys to be shown in the background instead of just the regular logo if you wish!:D
