Throwdown Ep. 134 – Toxic Fanboy Communities

Written by on    

Welcome to another episode of Throwdown! On this podcast/vidcast we discuss the latest video game news and topics in an uncompromising and honest manner. No developer, publisher, or fanboy is safe from us!

Things got personal with the console war this week as Tony Polanco was savagely attacked on Twitter after his account was deleted. This inspired our main topic: Why has gaming culture become so toxic within the last few years? Can anything be done to return civility? The panel discusses this topic in detail.

Other topics we cover this week:

Destiny 2 gameplay reveal
– Nintendo wins April NPD
– Ubisoft confirms new Assassin’s Creed, The Crew 2, and Far Cry 5
– Sega looks to revive dormant IPs
– Microsoft renews Scalebound trademark
