The latest Gamasutra Podcast include both the Tom Kim-presented Gamasutra Podcast show, alongside the best lectures, tutorials, and roundtables from this and previous years' Game Developers Conferences.
Today's edition of the Gamasutra Podcast is part one of their panel on Game Coverage and Reviews, with John Davison, Senior VP and Editorial Director of the 1UP Network, Greg Kasavin, Editor-in-chief of GameSpot, and Greg Vederman, Editor-in-Chief of PC Gamer Magazine.
As the show's introduction says:
"The holiday season is upon us, and with it comes the launch of not one, but two new consoles, and a veritable tsunami of games - some great, some not so great. With so many titles flooding the shelves, a lot of people turn to the enthusiast press and game reviews to help them sort out what to buy and what to avoid.
For this show, we present the first half of an expert roundtable on game reviews and press coverage. Our guests talk specifically about how developers can work more efficiently and harmoniously with the enthusiast press to get the coverage they want. They also share their opinions on the value of game reviews, how the process can be improved, how developers can take a more active role over their own communications, and how they really feel about gamerankings.com."
