Throwdown Ep. 04 – “iLemmings”
Welcome to another episode of our Throwdown podcast. This is a show where we discuss video games, pop culture and tech in an honest and uncompromising fashion. You won’t get any bullshit here.
On tonight’s episode of Throwdown, we discuss the new iPhone 6. Specifically, we talk about how the phone is made out of shoddy materials which cause it to bend easily. Why are Apple fans so vehemently defending this significant defect? This also leads into a larger discussion about brand loyalty and how fans of a particular product or company will blindly champion it even in the face of obvious flaws.
In addition, we discuss whether or not video games are inherently “geeky” or not. Video Games are universal of course, but at their core, are they really something that only geeks and nerds (i.e. Awesome People) can truly appreciate and understand? We also talk about Forza Horizon 2 and how it is currently the best Xbox One game available.
Thanks as always to Shawn Daley for our awesome intro and outro music.
