Office Chat


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.

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 have a lovely discussion on variable pricing models for games, which pretty much boils down thinking there probably ought to be some of that.

Time once again for another conversation from within Destructoid's virtual office.
