ShockCast Episode 27 – “No Cheering In The Press Box Sucks”

By Joel Taveras

August 20, 2010

This week’s show one of our main topics stems from an editorial that we read on  GamePolitics. In it the writer spoke about game journalists not being taken seriously because they never have the same integrity of, let’s say, a sports writer who delivers purely news and fact to his or her audience. Instead, game journalists always seem to lean in one direction or another. This topic quickly turns into a heated debate as most of us agree that this unofficial  “no cheering rule” sucks. Our second main topic we discuss the trials and tribulations that occur when you’re a smaller site trying to make a name for yourself in this industry. What separates the real ones with staying power from the fakers? To wrap things up we discuss news from GamesCom as well stories that made waves this week. All in all, another great episode with some great discussions, make sure to give it a listen.
