Rated-R – I Hear Voices (094)

EA managed the impossible, getting Console Peasants and PC Master Racers to unite in a common front against a shared enemy: EA.
Also, we had Bamm sit down with a professional journalist and writer, who also teaches Journalism and English, hoping for some rubbing off.


News: EA’s nightmare

Before we get to the juicy bits, Jolly had G around to talk about EA’s fustercluck of a release…

Note: Since we recorded this, there’s reports of physical sales of Battlefront II are down 60% compared to the previous version.


Special Guest: Patrick Hickey, Jr

Jolly and Bamm took a moment away from playing video-games to look at a book!

Yes, we got Bamm and Jolly to interview the author of “The Minds Behind The Games“, and Founder & Editor-in-Chief of Review Fix, talking about his book releasing early next year, featuring interviews with the creators of many classical games.
Of course, Patrick is also the voice of The Padre, which we featured recently, and which currently has a Kickstarter going!

We do have a YouTube version, including some Warframe footage (Microtransactions done right?), and a few trailers from The Padre … and because this week’s topic is a book, we’ve included a nice, cozy fireplace to enjoy!
