Throwdown Ep. 05 – “Licensed to Kill”

The Koalition's Tony Polanco writes:

"Our first featured topic this week is inspired by Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor. Licensed games: What makes a great licensed game and what makes a crappy one? Which are some of our favorites and which ones have been pure garbage?

Even though I’ve said we wouldn’t really talk about it anymore, we discuss GamerGate again. Recently, members of the movement managed to get Intel to stop advertising on GamaSutra’s website. GamaSutra is the home of Leigh Alexander who has been one of the journalists calling for the end of “gamers.” This got me thinking about the end goal of the group. Is this a battle with a discernable end or will it be a perpetual conflict?

On the gaming news front we pour one out for PlayStation Home which will be closing its doors next year. We discuss Lizard Squad’s latest attacks on Destiny‘s servers as well as on the PlayStation Network. We also talk about a recent report which says that Kickstarted video games have made less money this year than last. For tech news we discuss Microsoft’s recently announced Windows 10 and the company’s inability to count properly. Finally, on the Pop Culture side of things we talk about Warner Bros.’ plans to reboot I Am Legend and turn it into a franchise."
