Hey guys and gals! James here aka Wade D McGinnis and this morning I bring another episode of Holo Call. A weekly series where I dicuss gaming news, entertainment and sometimes games I have been playing. This week I talk about Germany requiring a license to stream, Brash Games a review site is in hot water after having their shady business practices revealed, and Bandai Namco has a new IP (more news came out today about the game title Code Vein, a dungeon exploration type hard action RPG) that looks to be a souls like. Should big streamers be required to have a license? Are you looking forward to a new IP from Bandai Namco? Are we surprised to see a gaming website act scummy?As usual, let's have a discussion below.
A look into Brash Games' business practices, the drunken email that lead to Peter Molyneux’s leaving Bullfrog, details on Mount and Blade 2, Extra Credits on the auteur myth, a scammer takes on a cruel corporation in Eve Online, the making of Samurai Shodown, Writing On Games on the problem with Steam and shortfalls of pro-consumer focused Youtubers, PC gaming's rise in Japan, Darkest Dungeon gets mod support, Bayonetta gets PC release, Gearbox backs out of G2A deal, Peter Moore talks about his time at Sega and EA and about the time he told Sonic creator to fuck off, Double Fine announces winners of Amnesia Fortnight game jam, EA to invest $500 million in Quebec's game industry over the next ten years, how Mad Catz changed the fighting game scene, and more.
