ARGcast #13: Keeping Positive with Candice Shane
She shares her desire to stay positive in a gaming industry that all too often prefers to showcase hate. Not everything is roses, however, especially when animal-themed platformers and Faxanadu are mentioned.
Our other topics also has us jump into the drama unfolding between Nintendo and video game art book creator Bitmap Books. Is Nintendo in the wrong for halting the Kickstarter 24 hours before the end of the campaign? Did Bitmap Books do their homework to avoid this kind of legal dispute? Feel free to email us with your thoughts! We also discuss the Angry Video Game Nerd in celebration of his 10 year anniversary on YouTube. Conversation gets a bit derailed with the recent Ghostbusters movie drama, but not without recognizing his importance in bringing retro gaming to the forefront of the video sharing platform.
Speaking of retro gaming, we have some amazing titles to discuss in this week’s Stage of History! We welcome in the coin-op classic Donkey Kong, the birth of a beloved franchise Metal Gear, and the game that made doing a barrel roll cool Star Fox 64! We also have gaming giveaways as usual, so be sure to listen up for your chance to win!
