ShockCast Episode 52 – “The ESRB Isn't the Problem, We Are”

By Chad Awkerman

February 18, 2011

We have another great ShockCast for you this week! First off, we discuss exactly what we use our gaming systems for. Are they the center of our media center or used primarily for gaming? How do both the major consoles stack up as far as media features go? Next we get our hands dirty talking about the ESRB, how rating for the same content has changed over time and how certain content seems to be handled differently than other content. Finally, Joel, Al and Matt talk about their experience at the EA and Bethesda events in NYC the last few days. So, sit back, tune in and give it a listen. Let us know what you think in the comments!
