ShockCast Episode 42 – “Video Game Addiction is a Myth”

By Joel Taveras

December 10, 2010

Hello again, and welcome to another addition of the ShockCast. This week things got a little hectic (due to some Sony event goodness) but we still managed to make sure that we delivered this episode to you all. For our first main topic, we discuss gaming addictions and why we believe it’s a myth. The topic came to us after we read a response blog post by Leigh Alexander where she fought the claims made  by a report on the BBC about video game addiction. While her post was great we wanted to add our own thoughts and spin on the subject. For our second segment we discuss the decline of the handheld and the rise of mobile gaming. Is it happening? And how soon should we throw away our DS? For the third topic, UNCHARTED 3… ’nuff said. We top it all of with some tidbits from our Sony event. All in all another great show in the bank, make sure to give this week’s episode a listen!
