In this latest Office Chat, I hang out with Jordan and Jim, discussing the recent expansion of the PlayStation Vita platform into some interesting (and questionable) directions. Plus, Steam's family share plan stinks of Obama's socialist reform America and we're here to tell you why it's impossible, right before realizing how well it could work for us.
Time for another delightful conversation from our virtual office. This time, Jim Sterling joins Jordan and myself to celebrate the positive news from both Microsoft and Sony at this year's gamescom event. Why, it's only a little bit tinged with doubt and anxiety! That's worth celebrating.
Plus, I play Devil's Advocate against a one-console future and we celebrate the man, the legend, Mark Cerny.
We have a new Office Chat for your consumption today, where I'm joined by Jordan Devore and Chris Carter to talk about the enormous changes on the way to multiplayer in Call of Duty: Ghosts, and I'm particularly taken with the features which will allow me to never have to humiliate myself in front of another human again. Plus, Saints Row IV is really, really good and we just wanted to make sure that was totally clear to everyone.
In this latest installment of Office Chat, I'm joined by Jim Sterling and Jordan Devore to commiserate over Valve's seeming decision to prioritize Left 4 Dead 3 ahead of Half-Life 3. Plus, John Carmack has joined the team developing the Oculus Rift VR headset, but is anybody going to care anymore once the thing is actually in consumer hands?
In this installment of Office Chat, Jim Sterling, Jordan Devore, and I discuss our impressions of where Grand Theft Auto is headed, based upon the latest gameplay trailer. Digital pricing discrepancies discovered during a beta involving Microsoft's upcoming transition to real-world currencies lead to a conversation regarding the squeeze placed on certain regions. And, finally, we're a touch boggled by consumer blowback to the Xbox One reversal (though, clearly, there are some curious agendas at work).
In this very special, extra-long installment of Office Chat, I'm joined by Dale North, Jim Sterling, and Jordan Devore to discuss what the Electronic Entertainment Expo is expected to bring (and how much longer E3 might be expected to bring it).
Is Nintendo's move to eliminate the bombastic press conference in favor of the more intimate Nintendo Direct going to pay off for them? What might this mean for the future of the Electronic Entertainment Expo and would it really be that awful if it shriveled up? Who will walk away from this year's show with the biggest response? All this and more awaits you.
In this special, singularly-focused edition of Office Chat, I'm joined by Jim Sterling and Jordan Devore as we discuss our reactions to the Xbox One reveal. From the frustrations of having to figure out what to now call the original Xbox console, to disappointing news that the massive library of existing Xbox Live Arcade games will have no home in the One, skepticism runs rampant.
It's not all bad news. The "snap" feature has earned some marks from us at least, but it appears that Microsoft is going to have to put out one hell of an E3 showing to win over these hearts and minds.
In this discussion from the Dtoid news room, I'm joined by Jordan Devore and Brett Zeidler to bandy about some of the latest rumors surrounding the next Xbox console. Plus talk on alternative post-launch content in the form of games such as Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, which we think is a super-cool approach.
We have a lovely new installment of Office Chat for you to enjoy today. Jordan and I are joined by Chris Carter. We talk a little bit about all of those properties Nordic Games scooped up in the final auction of THQ ass...
In the latest recorded conversation from Destructoid's virtual news room, I'm joined by Jordan Devore and Allistair Pinsof to discuss the annual ritual of April Fool's jokes, and the latest affirmation of Assassin's Creed's similar frequency. Plus, marvel at how small and powerful your electronic entertainment devices continue to become!
This week on Office Chat, I was joined by Jim Sterling and Jordan Devore and we explain why we don't participate in exclusive review shenanigans.
Plus, we are stymied by the vicious cycle of business that keeps female characters from the forefront of games. And we offer a farewell to former EA CEO John Riccitiello, while giddy at the prospect of who might take over.
In another casual discussion from Dtoid's news room, I'm joined by Jordan Devore and Alasdair Duncan to discuss the controversy surrounding God of War's "Bros before Hos" trophy. We also kibitz around the canning of the BioS...
In another casual discussion from Dtoid's virtual news room, I'm joined by Jordan Devore and Spencer Hayes to discuss the deflated rumor of a Dead Space development hiatus (one we kind of wish were true).
Plus, SimCity's rocky launch demonstrates once again that you can't count on anybody to successfully launch an online-only game and the gang discusses the recently announced Thief reboot.
In this latest installment of Office Chat, I'm joined by Jim Sterling and Jordan Devore to discuss rumors that Assassin's Creed IV will center around piracy on the high seas and express hope for the continued existence of a used games market. Plus, we have a lovely discussion on variable pricing models for games, which pretty much boils down thinking there probably ought to be some of that.
Had your fill of all the Sony news? If so, awesome, because we recorded this episode of Office Chat before any of that could happen!
