Experiences that Rich compares to a local multiplayer Torchlight. Steve saves his GDC thoughts for next week but brings a new iOS puzzle game into the mix, Rotolla.

News outlets have gotten plenty of practice manufacturing hyperbole surrounding sex and violence in video games. What we seem to brush aside, however, is the rampant lack of serious coverage in main stream media. When video games do get the coveted spotlight of a news segment, it either falls just short of responsible journalism or shows itself to be hilariously misinformed. At best, this turns into a joke on the internet. At worst, the misinformation that has more influence than any game journalism blog.

This episode we invite Asif Siddiky of 2 Player Productions to focus on two news segments that seem to miss the point and expose their bias against serious coverage of the medium, with segments from NPR’s All Things Considered and Morning Edition. (It’s recommended you listen to these stories to help follow our conversations about them.)
