iRGN #10: The Many Side Effects of Consumer Abuse From AAA Publishers

iRGN Episode 9 - RealGamerNewz Podcast

In the following uncensored, unedited podcast (sorry if there’s any offensive bloopers I meant to edit out 🙂 it’s been a busy week!) RealGamerNewz discusses a bunch of heavy topics for about 45 minutes including Review Scores, Indie VS AAA Games, Console Gaming and it’s current state as well as its future, Used Games and their effect on the industry when weighed against their convenience to the consumer, and more. Some of the other topics we cover are including, but not limited to, the pre-order culture, the over-saturation of DLC in the industry and publishers removing content that was meant to be part of the full game just so they can sell it back to us as DLC, other forms of consumer abuse such as misleading marketing or false advertising, and the effects all of this is having on the growing distrust of major video game developers and publisher worldwide from their consumer-base.

The opinions expressed on this show are that of the speakers and may not represent their final thoughts as everyone is a growing, evolving human being with advancing viewpoints that change over time. They also may not represent the opinions of the rest of our staff. Enjoy responsibly. I don’t always publish podcasts, but when I do I normally go all out, feel free to disagree. And until next time… Keep it real, keep it gaming!

iRGN #9: This Generation Of Consoles Needs More Games, Now

iRGN Episode 9 - RealGamerNewz Podcast

In this episode of the iRGN Podcast RealGamerNewz and Shotgun Seat Productions speak on the current generation of consoles and how they are failing to live up to their promises in terms of offering fresh new AAA gaming experiences. Despite the best efforts of development studios under the wing of the majors, the indie scene is outshining the triple A development scene simply due to the amount of half-baked remasters and remakes which aren’t even worthy of the price tag associated with adopting “next-gen” into the home. Perhaps if major console titles weren’t being delayed, publishing firms hadn’t become so comfortable with the unreasonably long life cycle of last-gen, and the very real threat of PC Gaming taking over not been ignored then maybe things wouldn’t be this way. It’s still early in the generation though and there’s still time for things to turn around, which we adamantly hope they will. In the following Video Podcast we discuss ways that can occur and just exactly how we feel about the current environment in the 8th console generation.
