G&P Podcast: Your Mother Loves Game and Player

The Editors  //  January 17, 2011

Sometimes developers demonstrate genius. Sometimes.


ill DC Universe Online prove to be the MMO of Steel? With certain notable exceptions, is the phrase "massively multiplayer" becoming synonymous with "free to play"? And why did Electronic Arts think that the Supreme Court's deliberation over video gaming's First Amendment status would be a good time to market a game that "your mom hates"? Featuring Michael Ubaldi, James Day, Heather Richtmyre and Wes Shockley.

Music is "Fever" by Helix Eternal.

RE: Dante's Inferno. That game is a major reason I was laughed at by my English professors when I suggested the importance of games for storytelling. And that Seven Deadly Sins campaign they did, with the debauchery photo competition, was dreadful.

Ironically, I've been arguing over the "Your Mom" campaign on the FD site for a couple days. Listening to this podcast now made me laugh, and felt a little vindicating.

As for MMOs, I probably won't ever get into one, but the APB model sounded decent and the idea of earning real-life rewards (even something like continued ability to play) strikes me as the sort of thing that should probably expand into games like CoD and Halo.
