Here's something that I've not really talked about much. It's another podcast! Den of Geek (and Nerdgasm quiz team) colleague Joe Ewens recently got in touch and asked if I'd like to collaborate on a gaming podcast, alongside theatre/arts champion Matthew Burt. I, of course, said yes, and we recorded a pilot episode a month ago, in an amazing recording space in a basement flat in Hackney.
And here it is! We start by talking about sequels, series and remakes in gaming, tying it in with wider cultural concerns. Have a listen! Check out the website! Give us some feedback!
Welcome to the Artificial Intelligence podcast, a new fortnightly conversation about the growing relationship between the developing world of videogames, media, and culture.
In this first episode, Michael Leader, Joseph Ewens, and Matthew Burt discuss sequels and remakes. Are video game sequels as abhorrent as the latest Hollywood cash in? Will remakes continue to be relevant as the medium evolves? Does Joe like Pokemon? You’ll never know, unless you listen.
