The Co-op Podcast #170: Does Controversy in Video Games Matter?

Written by on    

Welcome to episode 170 of The Co-op Podcast. This week we discuss the controversy surrounding the “Augs Lives Matter” marketing material produced by the Eidos team behind Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. Do people have the right to be angry? Should the Mass Effect designer have got involved? Was this really just a coincidence? We answer all questions in our discussion.

Also on this episode, we address the controversy over Sony and Hello Games asking sites who purchased No Man’s Sky early to take down their coverage. Who’s in the right here? We get into it on the podcast.

Other topics discussed:
– Is Batman: TellTale shaping up to be one of the best TellTale games?
– Impressions on the Xbox One S
Overwatch Summer Games

Special Thanks: M. Collins, Gority
