Generation X Episode 46: Down with Exclusivity and First Party


Generation 
X


In this episode, GenX'ers celebrate the Insomniac Games Announcement of teaming up with EA to release a multiplatform title and we discuss whether exclusivity is a thing of the past and what it means for gamers. We go on a mission to discover who and why the recent departures from Microsoft Games. Heavy Rain could possibly be coming to the PC according to Envidia. Motion Controls makes a return in our discussion when breaking down the validity of Project Natal and The Sony Move controls and if they are just rip-offs of the Nintendo Wii controls. With the recent release of Alan Wake and the completion of Alan Wake by Diz and Louie, we discuss what are our game of the year's are so far. NPD has released an article counting down the hours an average gamer plays video games and we ponder if there is a better way to spend your time, especially when recapping past and current times in our lives that video games become more than what we see on the screen. We also discuss whats been tickling our consoles as of late including: Alan Wake, Red Dead Redemption, UFC Undisputed 2010, Splinter Cell: Conviction, and Modnation Racers And ofcourse we find out ways during the podcast to poke fun at the world as usual and end it off with another GamerTunes. Stay tuned.

Gaming Podcast 174: A Helmet of Killer Bees

This week we're rolling dualies, Jennifer and Derrick are busting through the top news of the week and reading some gaming podcast community comments while flashing back to 720ยบ. We also managed to do our Gaming History segment this week! * WoW Remote Auction house * Fallout New Vegas getting big changes * Senior vice president of public relations at SCEA weighs in on used game sales * Sony unveiling a premium PlayStation Network? This week's question of the week, what would you expect to get out of a USD $70 subscription to a console network like the PSN?

PC PC Games Ep. 22 Pirating is NOT killing PC gaming!

What is this, Epic talking about piracy… one would think they know what they talk about… well one would think!? We give you plenty of reasons why it isn’t so, even go so far and quote someone that has to know better… Cliff Harris.
Our other talking points are:
  • Epic developer on piracy… epic fail!
  • Visit Cliff Harris and buy at least one of his games, do it NOW!
  • Split Second, or how not to release a demo
  • The looking glass… Blur is due this week
  • A look back “Flat Out” so much fun but oh so unstable
  • APB pre-purchase sale or how not to “entice people to preorder
  • Alpha Protocol pre-purchase goodies, that’s better
  • Apple in the News
  • Google in the News
  • We recommend a TV show, go watch some “Community
  • Torchlight… to MMO, or not to MMO?!
  • Square Enix.. has mucho profit
  • Bioware… DLC promise made again (in the past and not kept)
  • Red Dead Redemption… we miss it on the PC
  • Pachter is wrong again… we are not surprised
  • PC Gaming Alliance… what alliance?!
  • Now not just EA is charging for resold games, more reasons not to buy console!
  • Vote your Mountain Dew Flavor (apparently “White Out” is the one to vote for)
  • HP ENVY17 is on order
  • BFG is out of the video card market
  • What does Eyefinity look like in games
  • Sears in need of someone that takes pics for them
  • Another look at EPIC’s piracy statement
  • PC’s looking better the longer there is no new console
  • Curlen has two 5870’s and what that means for his current motherboard
