ShockCast Ep. 166 – “Gameageddon 2014: Part One”

on March 18, 2014 9:08 PM

It always seems to happen this way: We’ll go months without any big releases and then BAM, we’re suddenly inundated with a flood of games. This week alone has seen the release of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster and will also see the release of inFAMOUS: Second Son. What’s a gamer to do with all of these games to play?

We also discuss what makes a game a “system seller” and what games have gotten us to buy a particular console. On top of that we also dive into some gaming news, in particular, the recent exodus of producers and executives from certain game studios/publishers.

This week I was joined by Jorge Jimenez (Staff Writer) and Ryan Meitzler (Staff Writer). Thanks to El Blanco Niño for our custom intro and outro tracks.

Tony has been a gamer ever since he came to the United States from the Dominican Republic when he was a kid. He's been a geek since he could draw his first breath and will be one until he draws his last. In addition to video games, Tony loves Comic Books, Anime, Science Fiction and Fantasy. If it's geeky then Tony is most likely into it.
