[Episode 72] Gamer Is Dead! Maybe. Probably Not.Posted by Eric Leslie
Hey we’re back! Sort of. Some of us are back. Not all of us. We’re partially back!
Look, I’m rusty at this, give me a break.
There are lots of reasons for the lack of episodes this time around, and we talk about some of that within – basically, a big part of it is that in addition to being busy with other stuff, I’ve been feeling kinda crappy about gaming for a little while, because in a lot of ways it’s been crappy. If it could stop that, it’d be swell. It seems to be getting better, but clearly there are bumps in the road we’re traveling.
But we still love playing games and talking about games, and focusing on the good helps, so we do a lot of that. We don’t just focus on the crappy stuff, don’t worry. There’ve been some sweet games out there lately – Clayton walks us through the surprisingly high-quality Wolfenstein: The New Order, for instance, and I gush unreservedly over Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor. And Steam curation! And Blizzard canceling Titan! And Notch getting unfathomably rich! There’s lots of stuff, give it a listen and hear for yourself.
Small crew this time around, but we’ll try to up the player count next time around. If anybody’s around, that is. I mean, I hear Gamer Is Dead! Maybe. Probably Not.
