Good episode guys, pretty solid discussion although I disagree with Corey in a few respects - the landscape is totally different than it was even 5 years ago for games. You have the choice and the means to see gameplay, and either buy in or stay out of the hype machine that games media puts out there. Value is completely subjective, and right now games are objectively cheaper than they've ever been when you bring inflation in to the picture. I think Destiny shows value because I've put in about 2 days in the game so far, sure it's a little hollow and it seems like the story was gutted, but I have fun jumping in with some buddies and chatting while shooting everything in sight. The value there is a mix of social and content, it's not simply "is Destiny worth $60". I also would've liked to hear the opinion on episodic content like Telltale games or Double Fine, does an episodic game for $30 that takes 10 hours over 5 episodes justify 3 of the episodes being essentially filler or a trudge through cloudy narrative?
Like the new show! I would be alright with something like a "buy this game now" or some sort of relevant tie in like that but I do agree they could over do it pretty easily. Hoping that they do allow Twitch to stay pretty independent and just funnel cash to them for more bandwidth, higher fidelity from streams and would be cool to have music banks that streamers could pick from that are authorized, or something like up and coming artists could pay to add their stuff to the bank. Anyway, good show gents, look forward to the next ep.
