No Lull in the Heroes of the Storm Before E3

Garnett Lee published on

E3 draws nigh and playing the technical alpha of Blizzard's in development MOBA, Heroes of the Storm, sparks some thoughts about how cumbersome applying the term video game to such a broad entertainment has become. Callers finalize some thoughts on the Xbox One's future without Kinect being packed into every box. Don't count the WiiU out because one listener may just change your mind on how it fits into your gaming mix. Several other conversations come up, including the relationships between media, social media, and kickstarter campaigns. There's a quick look at Evil Within and more. Want to be part of the show?

    I have to admit that I got a chuckle out of the lamentation over the label "video game," followed by arcane acronyms like MOBA and DOTA a few seconds later. The public understands and knows what a video game is, I don't know anyone who doesn't play games who knows what a DOTA or MOBA is. In fact, I know gamers who don't know what those two are. I don't think there's an issue with the generalized term for electronic gaming when we have entire genres that defy definition.
