It’s Episode 6 of the Press Row Podcast! We’ve got an excellent new segment and a new fifth chair – and a brand new console launch to talk about. Here’s the gameplan:
Kickoff - What the crew has been playing
First Quarter – The Wii U has hit the streets – along with three major sports games. Rich reviewed all three for GamesRadar, and Owen spent some quality time with a couple as well; the two chat about their experience and what the platform has to offer.
Second Quarter – Up next, Owen and crew discuss the abrupt end of 2K Sports’ online support for the majority of their sports games
Third Quarter – The gang chats about some user mail and feedback
Fourth Quarter – We welcome our first-ever guest – RowShamBow’s Creative Director Ian Cummings! Ian takes questions from the crew about a bunch of things, including Madden, the future of sports games, and what it’s like to go from console development to the mobile/social platform. He also chats about his team’s brand new free game, Letter to Letter (available on 12/1 in the Apple and Android stores).
