Greetings loyal listeners, and thanks for joining us on another episode of the GaGcast. This week we’ll be talking about demos and giving a console status scorecard. First things first though is our weekly playlist. Nate spent time with Defenders of the Realm, Sentinels of the Multiverse, and iZombie. Fred continued to reconnect with his Vita and Helldivers and Ray started playing Capes, Cowls, and Villains Foul with the testing group.
After covering the usual bases the guys talk about the status of the current console market. All of the consoles were given scores based on their current performance and we come up with things we want to see to improve the current status of console gaming. Lots of time is spent on the topic of console exclusives and their importance to the success of a system. For the guys Sony is the current winner by virtue of learning from past mistakes and making big improvements to their system’s architecture and usability. The guys eventually get onto the topic of demos and early access. They cover some of the issues with the current culture of prepaid beta access and what this trend could mean for gaming in the future. As always we’d love to hear your opinions on the topics we discussed this week and encourage you to join in on the discussion on our Facebook page. If Twitter is more your style you can reach out to us a @grownasgamers. Don’t forget to like, subscribe, and leave a rating on Stitcher, iTunes, or the podcast listening medium of your choice.
