GMD Ep30: Weirdly Paradoxical

GMD Ep30On this week’s podcast Alex, Ben and Jared discuss the 2016 DICE Awards and why ultimately no one should really care too much about awards and awards shows in general. Also, gamers have found a way to complain about getting a free Windows copy of Quantum Break bundled with the Xbox One version, and Alex is super bummed that the upcoming indie game Moon Hunters is getting delayed for a month.

During The Top Three List of the Week a chat about each host’s “top three favorite games that actually lived up to the pre-release hype” inexplicably leads in to a long philosophical discussion and debate about social development and ethics in online gaming interactions.

In addition to producing many different shorts and even spec pilots about videogames over the years, his favorite hobby is developing online games. After having some unexpected success with his indie MORPG NEStalgia, much of Ben’s free time is now spent running his very own gaming community.
