A bit of a short show this week, but there’s a lot going on in it, I promise. We’ve got a topic this week that has caught the interest of Alex Wawro, a writer for PC World and former WotG E3 insider, and John Davison, vice president of CBS Interactive.
Rather than inundate our guests with our usual game-related ramblings, we ask what they’ve been playing, by way of introduction. Alex has been playing Tell Tale Games’ new episodic title, The Walking Dead, and it’s amazing. John has been trying to understand League of Legends, and it’s not so amazing.
We then move on to the topic which brought these august gentlemen to the show: if the next home consoles restrict the used market in some way, will this ultimately harm small independent media outlets like The Way of the Game? Will we be less able to experience the breadth of games that listeners and readers demand, or will we be better situated to meet the needs of gamers who are also playing fewer games?
We want to extend a huge thank you to John and Alex. They provided truly unique insights that can only come from people involved in the “mainstream” media.
Next week, there will be no Alexes on the show, and Sam has rage in his heart. It ought to be fun!
