The Co-op Podcast #158: Who Is Still Buying GTA V?

Written by on    

Welcome back to another episode of The Co-op Podcast. When recording this episode, our Editor-in-Chief Richard Bailey Jr. was away for former editor David Jagneaux‘s wedding. Congrats to David, we hope they had a great weekend. For this show we assembled Michael A., Charles Temowo (EarthBenderCharlie) and honorary Throwdown member Michael Crawford (Rikuson1).

Our main topic was the NPDs, more specifically we were wondering who the hell is still buying Grand Theft Auto V. If you happen to know how the game is still selling so much then let us know below.

We also spent a chunk of time discussing the rage-quitting problem in Street Fighter V. What should Capcom do to combat rage-quitters? We also speak on the sales and overall reception of the game so far.

Of course, with EarthBenderCharlie joining us, we couldn’t help but get into another discussion about Final Fantasy XV, and the pitfalls of the Final Fantasy XIII series.

Also discussed on this show:
– Microsoft announces their E3 press conference. Did we really think they would change it?
– Thoughts on Gears of War 4 trailer
– Bandai Namco embraces the speed run culture by setting a 10,000 Australian dollar prize for beating the current record on Dark Souls III. Should we see this more?

Special Thanks: Gority, M. Collins
