Episode 8: A Sega Shift, VR possibilities, and the expansion of Gaben’s Empire

Firstly, we apologize for the lateness of this episode. We got snowed in this past Thursday and Mike and I weren’t able to meet in one location to record. We didn’t want to record via Skype at lower quality, so we delayed this episode in order to meet up and record in our normal location.

In this episode we discuss Sega’s move to develop exclusively for mobile and PC, the possibilities of VR for the future of the industry in general and Sony’s Morpheus in particular, the expanded hardware market now available on Steam, the Unreal 4 engine becoming free, and much more.

Episode 7: Net Neutrality, a Nintendo Gold Rush, and Saban Censorship

In this episode, we discuss the FCC’s successful net neutrality vote to protect the open internet, the rush for the Gold Mario amiibo pre-orders and their resale prices, Saban’s censorship of the Adi Shankar Power/Rangers reboot fan film, and more.

Pardon the echo that is noticeable in the audio this week. Both of us had to record in separate rooms because Mike was out of town, so the audio quality wasn’t as high as previous episodes. We didn’t want to skip a week, so we made sure we recorded despite the circumstances!


Note: At the end of the episode, we mentioned that the Donkey Kong Country and Donkey Kong Land titles were on sale on the Nintendo eShop, but we did not mention the prices. Here they are:
