Yes, the Well Played podcasthas reached double digits and while I can’t claim to have been there from the beginning (I think I missed the first five episodes) I think it’s tracking extremely well. The crew – Julie Gray (@GamecultureNZ), Siobhan Keogh (@SiobhanKeoghNZ), Aylon Herbet (@Aylon133) and Chris Leggett (@Leggetron) and myself – are passionate about our gaming.
In this episode we chat about games we’re playing at the moment – Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet, From Dust, The Witcher 2, Batman Arkham Asylum, Left 4 Dead 2; Why do Kiwis pay so much for their games compared to overseas, and discuss a question raised by Reagan Morris, in Wellington: Will the ever-growing consumer base for casual games have repercussions for the smaller growing core gamer user base? And if publishers are making more from casual games will they be de-incentivised to make games for the core gamers?
Oh, and there’s also a discussion about changes coming up in Diablo 3, specifically the new auction house model.
Phew, that’s enough for one week.
