In our interview with Fatal1ty we talked about some of the current games he plays on his Twitch stream and he provides streams with some tips to maximize viewership.
We get serious as we tackle the fallout over the YouTube Heroes rollout and how it ties into the battle over political correctness, SJW’s, Gamergate and even the Alt-Right.
In our extended episode we continue our coverage of Pokémon Go gone wrong stories with a robbery caught on a Twitch stream. We discover a Japanese zombie killing game where with a press of a button you can remove the characters clothing. We even discuss the upcoming season of comic book related television shows and the new Star Trek Discovery show.
What do you do when 95% of your staff is playing Fallout 4 and not working on show prep and booking guests? You focus on your roots and talk gaming, gaming, and gaming.
First up we discussed a few little things Activision could have purchased with the 5.9 Billion dollars they spent on Candy Crush such as LucasFilms or Marvel for example.
Next up we received the nominees for the 2015 Game Awards and discussed each of the prime categories. The Game Awards will take place live on December 3, 2015 at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles and will be streamed simultaneously on gaming screens globally via a range of partners, including go90, YouTube, Twitch, Steam, PlayStation Network, Xbox Live and TheGameAwards.com.
Now the nominees were pretty console and Triple A heavy as well with big names such as Bloodborne, Fallout 4, Metal Gear Solid V, Super Mario Maker, The Witcher 3 and Halo 5, but there were also some Indie games like, Ori and the Blind Forest, Her Story and Rocket League. However we felt there was a lot missing, but what can you do, it is the way of many gaming award shows.
Finally we talked some StarCraft 2, Legacy of the Void and got a non-spoiler review and opinion on the final campaign of the series from our friend and hardworking OG member Magnolia.
All in all a good show, very game heavy with lots of game footage from the nominees so check it out and as always let us know what you think.
