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!
Tonight’s main topic is about Sony shutting down Evolution Studios. From this topic, we talk about how difficult it is for mid-tier studios to exist in today’s gaming climate. We also discuss our feelings about publishers buying up smaller studios to only close them down when they aren’t profitable.
Other topics we discuss:
– Quantum Break and Dark Souls III running at lower than 1080p on Xbox One
– Rocket League devs have figured out how to do cross-platform play
– The drama surrounding the Nintendo NX controller “leak”
– The PS4.5 is indeed coming
– Microsoft’s Twitter robot turns into a horrible racist
