Great cast! One unfortunate problem

I've listened to many a Start Cast over this year, and enjoy it quite a lot. Always love supporting the Aussie side of game journalists, and read the website quite often.

Have one unfortunate niggle - I can't keep listening to the cast as it gives me a headache. I think there's an issue in the audio with Mehdi's microphone or something, not sure if it's just on iTunes or not, but there's this weird glitchy tick like thing that makes listening to this with headphones just impossible for me. Maybe it's just my head, I dunno. Anyway, it's a great cast and if that kind of thing doesn't phase you then this is a definite listen! Unfortunately for myself I need to hold off for a while at least.

Not ready for prime time

I wanted to like this podcast but the hosts just don’t sound like they are interested. Commentary around games industry news and review rarely goes any deeper than “Yeah, it’s alright - like - it’s not my favourite” and after following for a few months, the lack of depth in their coverage has meant that for now, I’ve stopped listening. There are plenty of great Australian games podcasts to keep you busy before resorting to Press Start.

Sorry guys.

You can do better

I want to support this podcast and be positive about Australian content, but there’s a degree of maturity and diversity lacking from the panel that would help bring out the intellect and insight the presenters clearly possess. Also, James talks over the top of people too much.
