ShockCast Episode 47 - "Why Some Games Are Lost in Translation"

By Joel Taveras

January 14, 2011

Another week and another great podcast! Listen in as we discuss the current state of the Japanese gaming market and why there’s an imaginary line drawn between gamers from the far East and the rest of the gamers in the Western hemisphere. We also go into why some game creators will continue to only cater to certain markets, regardless of what’s expected by those outside of their region. For our second topic we discuss how gaming hardware and software is currently being used for the good of science! We also discuss how the Kinect will have a much better use than simply making you look like an idiot while playing. For our third segment, it’s all about the Verizon iPhone. We talk about what it means for the competition and most importantly what it means for gaming. All that as well as this week’s biggest news stories! Make sure to give it a listen!
