ShockCast Ep. 157 – “Broken Agegate”

Well, that didn’t take too long. 14 days into the new year and the gaming industry has already experienced its first – albeit, slight – controversy. This week on the ShockCast we decided to jump head-first into the issues surrounding Double Fine’s highly-anticipated Broken Age, and the role of the press in the latest debacle involving it. We also spoke a little bit about the news of SimCity’s new-found offline functionality, and did a rundown of some recent news. Enjoy!

This week I was joined by Jorge Jimenez (Staff Writer), Ryan Meitzler (Staff Writer), Tony Polanco (Staff Writer), and Dianna Lora (Community Manager). Many thanks to El Blanco Niño for our custom intro and outro.
