The listeners would also know what game we're playing, and would be able to write in if they had a point they wanted to talk about. That's kind of the best idea I've had so far.
That sounds fun.:) Though, it may be a little difficult in that everyone may not have the console to play a game, if it happens to only release on one platform. You might need a pool of people to pull from depending on what devices they have access to.
You could also discuss upcoming releases, upcoming consoles (when those come around), maybe a little section where everyone can do a short chat on a smaller release they may have played. And of course, you could always talk about whats new or upcoming with Grouvee. =D
But there are a few big releases coming up that you could do, like Dragon Age 3 for example. I think you'd probably need a big disclaimer about spoilers though, or limit them to the end and tell people to stop listening now if they want to avoid the spoilers. Though for most of the year, there normally aren't a ton of big releases, so maybe choosing a small selection of indie titles for a month could work. Instead of one big 60+ hour game, you could have 3 or 4 games that take only a few hours to finish. Personally I'm a much bigger fan of the smaller titles, and I like hearing more about them then I do a big AAA release, since plenty of people talk about those.
