I am proud to be able to present to you the first episode of Bit Transmission, a new podcast featuring two of Destructoid's most interesting editors, Jonathan Holmes and Colette Bennett. I'm also on there as well.
In this episode, we spend some time talking about Bioshock 2 and a couple of the latest WiiWare releases. The second half of the episode has us discussing the changing role of mascot characters in games and how the games industry tries to build our attachment to the games we play.
In future episodes, we'll be tackling a wide variety of topics both old and new to gamers. We're going to try and get some interviews with interesting members of the industry and, of course, we'll want to hear from all of you.
For now, please enjoy our debut. We're very excited about the new show and are looking forward to bringing it to you.
