"Polygon’s negative review of Bayonetta 2 because of its overt sexuality leads into another lengthy discussion about game reviews and how objective or non objective they should be. Can a review ever be 100% objective? Should people just follow reviewers whose opinions match theirs? Should a reviewer keep their own personal views out of a review or should they dock points off a game if something in it deeply disturbed them? These are all things we bring up.
After we briefly talk about September’s NPD numbers and how Michael Pachter was wrong about the Xbox One outselling the PlayStation 4, we have another lengthy discussion, this time on Nintendo. Chris Sealy and Brett Murdock believe that the company is making ridiculous choices with their franchises, specifically The Legend of Zelda and the Master Cycle in Mario Kart 8. This leads into the larger topic of how much touch Nintendo has lost with the gaming community and whether or not it’s too late for them to stop their ship from sinking (metaphorically speaking)."
