We should be back on our regular schedule of recording and publishing next week, with the podcast being available earlier in the day on Monday. This week’s episode of Marooners’ Talk, our 22nd, titled, “Oh, the horror!” jumps all over the place. We spend some time talking about the decline/demise of the survival horror genre, then transition into the apparent disappearance of great Japanese developed games from the Western market. A brief discussion about the “games as art” argument is followed by a resurgence of last week’s topic concerning the hatred that game journalists have for readers, and the disregard that game companies have for customers. The cost of game development gets a piece, and we close with Kotaku’s hard hitting coverage of…McDonald’s McFish Bites. Quality stuff there, Kotaku.
