ShockCast Episode 138 - "Scores of Scores"

By David Rodriguez

August 14, 2013

These days it seems that the only two deciding factors amongst fans and publishers as to whether a game is good or not are sales and review scores. For some, these two attributes of a game’s success hold real weight, and for others, a game should be judged strictly on its merits as a game. This is one of the two big topics we picked apart this show. The other being the Xbox One, because it’s been a little overdue – and we can’t keep up with all the flip-flops.

This week I was joined by Masoud House (Features Editor), Allisa James (Staff Writer), Kenneth Richardson (Staff Writer), and Jorge Jimenez (Staff Writer). Many thanks to El Blanco Niño (and Nintendo) for our custom intro and outro. Enjoy the show!
