ShockCast Episode 33 – “You Can’t Always Get What You Want”

By Joel Taveras

October 1, 2010

It was the Rolling Stones who sang “You can’t always get what you want”, and when it comes to video games, ain’t that the truth. Thats our main topic for this week’s podcast. Why don’t we (consumers) ever get what we want from companies in the industry? Some examples are expanded friends lists for Xbox Live, or even cross game chat on the PS3. Why do we have to beg for functionality to be added that should have been there to begin with? We also take the time to throw in an RPG topic because of this week’s missed DualCast. During which we discuss reasons why RPGs are often overlooked for year end lists, like “Game of the Year” for example. We talk a litttle bit of Kotick VS EA, because you guys love controversy and wanted to hear all about it. Then we round out the show with the Nintendo 3DS price point. $299 bucks! Really Nintendo? Really?!? All of those topics as well as this weeks top news stories so make sure you listen in to this weeks show.
