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!
