Gaming writer and podcast host, MICHAEL ABBOTT (aka The Brainy Gamer), joins me on the show to talk about and dissect the current state of video games. We talk E3, the Big 3 (Nintendo, Sony, Microsoft), next gen consoles, AAA games vs indie games, manifesto & emergent gameplay, sports games, progressivism and the state of women as players in the medium. We touch on Destiny, No Man’s Sky, Gone Home, The Last of Us, Wolfenstein, Beyond: Two Souls, Assassin’s Creed, Kentucky Route Zero, MLB: The Show, and Anita Sarkeesian & her Feminist Frequency project.
A great listen! Enjoy!
