Gaming Podcast 5 - Art, Advertising and Attitude

Posted on 15th Oct 2009 at 10:35 by Podcast with 12 comments

Podcast
The fourth Gaming Pocast from the CustomPC and bit-tech team, again hosted by Joe and this time with Harry, Mark and Antony joining in for plenty of discussion about the latest events in the games industry across all platforms.

This week we talk about whether games journalists should have to develop games as a qualification, whether games can ever really be considered as an art form and why we've all been put off by the new advertising for Dragon Age: Origins and Mass Effect 2.

We also talk about the pending release of Windows 7 and why Joe isn't going to upgrade, as well as whether Valve might have a hidden dark side. Chilling stuff.

We've got a new prize to give away in the competition this week too, so listen closely and if you can guess the game we're describing then send your clearly labelled emails to Podcast@custompc.co.uk - and remember to put 'Gaming Podcast 5' in the subject line, or drop your thoughts in the forums.

all old-school games including NOLF works fine on my netbook running Win7 pro.

to be honest, upgrading to win7 really doesn't affect me a single bit. the new taskbar is not as great as it said to be, performance is unnoticeable.
only thing made me change to it after playing with the Beta was the multi-folder library feature.

another great podcast, in terms of games as art, it doesn't really matter, as long as it doesn't change the price of games, it's fine.

How will I be getting the copy of Zeno Clash? Is it a retail copy or a digital download as I have not received it yet.

Will be emailing a Steam code to you later today, when I get in to work. Sorry about the delay! Purely my own forgetfulness at fault. :o

I liked this podcast, that's a nice contrast to the hardware one which is much more serious :)

Watchers Keep? That was Baldur's Gate, Throne of Bhaal.
I'm assuming Bioware haven't reused the name for Dragon Age.

I couldn't quite tell. Does Dragon Age force SecuROM on you or not?
