We all encounter fleeting moments we wish could stick with us indefinitely while playing certain games—moments we want to define why we play. This week we’re joined by Conrad Zimmerman, news editor of Destructoid, as we dig in to the proverbial treasure troves of memories in search of such defining moments that showed us how games could tell a story or surpass personal expectations.

This week we would also like our listening audience to contact us with their own defining gaming moments; we will share our favorites on the next episode.

Finally in my stead of losing my voice, my wife Jacki offers her services to record the intro, outro, and unbeknownst to her, the post-roll. – Matt

Episode 27 – Shut Up and Take My Money

The debate over buying new games versus used has an active conversation between consumers, publishers and developers for years. Yet the evidence that it’s a one-sided argument—and one that consumers don’t necessarily have a fair say in—only seems to be growing. We’re joined this week by Brad Gallaway, gamecritics.com senior editor and founder of Drinking Coffee Cola, to explore this multifaceted issue from the nature of retail systems and DLC to the concept of ownership.
