IncGamers Podcast #173
This week, the IncGamers Podcast re-expands to a hearty threesome as we explore the popular topic of the week: murky and undeclared publisher payments to YouTube channels. Not a new topic of course, but one that’s popped up again in light of a couple of online articles.
Our podcast team discusses the ins and outs of this, along with the problems of “older” online and print media pointing fingers when they themselves don’t have the cleanest of records. It’s an important issue, as it’ll probably end up defining a certain type of games coverage for the next few years. Surely there’s room for all of us – print, online and video – in this big videogame world of ours?
We’ll also have another look at the not very convincing Dishonored 2: Darkness of Tyvia leaks that have, for some reason, shown up again after already being debunked the first time around.
Elsewhere, DOTA 2’s mega-tourney The International 4 is about to reach its final stage. Let’s see if I can impress Tim with my Newcomer Stream-acquired knowledge. There’s also an upcoming Dark Souls 2 patch, more hot hot Naruto news and a foolish attempt to Kickstart Half-Life 3 to talk about.
This week, I’ve been playing ACE Team’s Abyss Odyssey (as has Tim, a bit.) Paul’s been delving into the Early Access Meridian: New World, and between making Sims look like freaks in The Sims 4‘s creation center, Tim’s been playing more Divinity: Original Sin.
