Platforms and Pitfalls Episode 14 - Conversations about games

This month we talk about… stuff…. Both of us are in great moments of change in our lives right now, either moving between countries or to opposite sides, so unfortunately our traditional format wasn’t really possible in the time we had. So, this time we spoke about some of the conversations that are going on in gaming.

00:00 Intro
00:45 Genre, see this video
11:09 Accessibility (In fighting games)
25:16 Transitioning generations, the time of wish fulfillment and unique releases (and since recording, this just got silly with MOON RPG being announced for localization!?!?!?!?!?)
34:04 Boom and bust, cycles, work and the gaming economy
45:15 Summer Games Done Quick has a big success and closing thoughts.

We love talking about games and there is never enough time to talk about everything. What conversations through the year really caught you you want to hear more about?
