Throwdown Ep. 48 – “Gamers Are Dead”: One Year Later

Written by on    

Welcome to another episode of Throwdown. On this podcast/vidcast we discuss the latest video game, pop culture, and tech news in an honest and uncompromising fashion.

It’s been a year since the beginning of the #GamerGate movement, which sought to bring light to the corruption in the video game industry. Now that we’re one year removed from the beginning of the event and movement, we decided to look back on it and discuss how it all got started, and more importantly, how the industry has changed since then.

This week’s news topics include:

  • Is Nintendo backing away from ‘Quality of Life’ initiative?
  • Konami letting YouTubers post lets plays of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Is this a new trend?
  • Konami lets fans vote on what franchises to bring back.
  • Call of Duty: Black Ops III beta impressions.
