GT: Talking Indies at PAX East, the Anthem Problem, and Endgame Theories
Hey now geeks, after many years of silence, we’ve dusted off our original podcast show, which mainly features discussions on video games, but we also throw in some geeky movie and TV talk when warranted.
It’s probably been over 3 years since we regularly did a show dedicated to gaming, so it was fun to fire it up again with two new hosts. Both Nat Smyth and Enrique Cancel joined me as we interviewed Nat about his trip to PAX East 2019, which has been a staple of his gaming coverage each year. Nat zeroed in on Indies at the show, and had the most fun while at Devolver’s booth. He discussed a few of the publisher’s upcoming titles, which he’s been writing previews for right here on EB, so make sure to check them out.
We also tapped into the debate surrounding Anthem, in particular, a recent Kotaku article that highlighted some internal issues at Bioware. We talked about those and how they may have affected the game’s development and end result. We also talk about our own experiences with the game, and how we want to love it, and still dabble it, but that it ultimately failed us in terms of the expectations we had for a Bioware title.
Finally, we discussed the Avengers: Endgame special look trailer from last week. We talked about some of the more interesting new looks, and how there has to be some time traveling going on. We also touched on the disaster that was the film’s pre-sale launch last Tuesday, and how it brought down the movie Internet.
Make sure to tune in above, and subscribe if you like what you hear. We plan to get back at it on a regular basis, so we do appreciate any feedback.
