Mr. Anderson…No, Wrong Movie…

In light of our last, slightly-less-gaming-focused podcast, we thought we’d make it up to you, the listeners, by not only staying true to our passion of gaming in our discussion this week, but even taking it one step further and actually playing a game live as we record.

PodBytes – Episode 22: No Games For You!

PodBytes Episode 22

The Podcast About Games, Now With Fewer Games!

We gathered to record a gaming podcast. We promise. We really did! But we think we, like the remainder of the world, are allowed an ADD moment every now and then.

Un-Convention-al

E3 has wrapped; the Los Angeles Convention Center has closed its doors to game developers, publishers, and the journalistic mass circus that comes with it all each year. As the cleaning crews sweep in (pun only slightly intended), gamers begin the eager anticipatory wait until they can get their hands on the tantalizing goods that have just been unveiled to the world.

But not everything is said and done. In the wake of press announcements, trailers, and plenty of pomp and circumstance, information must be digested, claims must be dissected, and promises analyzed. Continue reading
