ShockCast Episode 85 – “How Many Genres do we REALLY Need?”

on October 15, 2011 7:30 PM

Hey folks! Sorry for the delay, but we’re here with episode 85 for your listening pleasure. Join the colorful cast of Joel, Giuseppe, David, Chad and our new writer Isshak as they discuss a couple most interesting topics. First off, we talk about the ridiculous nature of video game genres, then move over to talk about how achievements and trophies improve gaming (or do they?) and how the “achievement whore” mindset is encroaching upon our non-game activities in life. We also discuss, as usual, the week in news and what games we’ve been playing this week, so hit the break and check out this week’s episode.

Chad joined the DualShockers staff in mid 2009 and since then has put much of his time into covering RPGs, with a focus on the Japanese side of the genre, from the obscure to the mainstream. He's a huge fan of iconic games like Secret of Mana, Final Fantasy VI and Persona 4 yet enjoys the smaller niche titles, as well. In his spare time he enjoys experiencing new beer, new foods and keeping up with just about every sci-fi show on television. He's married to an intelligent, beautiful Southern Belle who keeps his life interesting with witty banter and spicy Cajun cooking.
