Mobcast Episode 31

Aaaaaand we’re back. Special guest and EGM alumnus Crispin Boyer joins regular Bitmobbers Michael Donahoe, Dan “Shoe” Hsu, and Demian Linn to discuss games that didn’t live up to our expectations, why we (some of us) stop or slow down our gaming, how our review criteria has changed over the years, and movie directors that we’d like to see take on game-to-film adaptation projects.

Our community question comes from Michael Pangelina, who asks this three-parter: “What writers or books did you look up to when you were starting out, and who would you recommend for the Bitmob community’s aspiring writers to garner inspiration from? What kind of authors do you guys enjoy now, as well?”
