Welcome, one and all, to the first installment of our new podcast. This biweekly spin-off will discuss the latest material from all of our favorite gaming blogs, books, magazines…maybe even fan fiction (or not). Many of us here read about games almost as often as we play them, and the Reader will allow us to address interesting topics in a more intimate setting. This show will definitely evolve over the next few weeks, but listener feedback is crucial. We’ll be paying close attention to iTunes reviews and comments, so please let us know what you think!
This week, Justin and Nick delve into a recent article from Leigh Alexander that addresses GDC’s social gaming buzz. Farmville is definitely a phenomenon, but can it possibly take down console gaming? They also delve into the “lost” issue of EGM, supposedly just prior to the digital magazine’s launch. The presentation is pretty slick, but the guys still have a few reservations.
