Press Row Podcast – Episode 4

It’s Episode 4 of the Press Row Podcast, and while we’re down a man this week (get well soon Steve!) we’ve got a lot to talk about, from racing games to training modes and review scores. And that’s just for starters! Here’s the gameplan:

Kickoff - What the crew has been playing

First Quarter – It’s Forza Horizon review time, so Owen details why Forza is so appealing to so many people

Second Quarter – We talk about Downloadable Content’s good, bad, and ugly – and where it may lead in the future

Third Quarter – We go deep into the subject of training modes in sports games, spurred on by an email from an EA Game Changer listener

Fourth Quarter – The NPD sales numbers are half-full of sports games this month – is that great news, or perhaps something decidedly less so?

2 Minute Warning – Parting shots from the gang

The Final Gun – Where to follow and read all of the Press Row Podcast panelists

Joining us this week:

Owen Good, Kotaku (@owengood)

Samit Sarkar, Polygon (@samitsarkar)

Kickoff - What the crew has been playing

First Quarter – It’s NBA 2K13 time, and we go in depth from several angles

Second Quarter – We look back at the long, slow, painful death of NBA Live 13

Halftime – Listener feedback

Third Quarter – We discuss the Rise of the Ultimate Team across the industry

Fourth Quarter – Patch Culture and its impact on sports games reviews well after release

2 Minute Warning – Parting shots from the gang – including an, um, interesting take from Owen about NBA 2K13’s replay camera
