I've listened to one podcast since he's been gone. Probably listened to 10-15 while he was there.

Can Shane's company translate and release Yakuza 3 in the west?

I was trying to hint at that in the "does Sega hate money" thread without name dropping Shane. But since this whole thread is about Shane I'll mention it here.

As for gaming, it does seem like fewer people post in the Listen Up and Co-op threads than the old 1upYours and 1upShow threads. Just an observation. I myself didn't start watching co-op until recently, and have since caught up on all the videos. Those guys are still doing good work and I just got done listening to this week's Listen Up, it's also still an entertaining podcast.

Is it just that people are watching/listening to these shows but not talking about them as much, has there been a real drop off in viewer numbers amonst the GAF audience or has there been no significant drop off and it's all in my head?

Because GAF likes to worship and hype up all things that are wrong in the industry.

My vocabulary isn't large enough to describe what it is, but there's a certain charm to Shane's way of speaking that comes through even in transcribed dialogue or quotes that just emanates this hilarious...I don't know, vibe(?) whenever he over-endorses something. I'm even a bit surprised with myself and how my podcast-listening habits have died recently. I hate to say this, but the lack of Shane and Luke when confirming weekends makes me wax nostalgic :/

This is why more people were posting in the 1up podcasts threads when Shane was on, he was a controversial character, I think people forget how many long drawn out arguments there was about his obvious like for Sony in many of the old 1up threads, not I that I cared.

True. When Shane left 1up I was like, "Ahhhhh this isn't happening NOOOOOO there is no reason to go on WHAT AM I FIGHTING FORRRRRRRRRR?"

I ask myself the same question every morning when I struggle to get up.

Whatever your feelings about the guy, if you were a fan of 1up yours and didn't think his last appearance was legendary, you're a peasant.

Who is 'Shane' and why should I care?

I've always listened to IGN podcasts, and never really liked 1up (the site or podcasts).

He was the General of the Sony Defence Force before being let go, after which he was hired by a Private Military Company, which is ironically currently working for Microsoft (according to the last 1up podcast).
