EXP Podcast #447: Players Behaving Badly
3 days ago
This week on the EXP Podcast, we wrestle with the dark underbelly of online gaming - its own players. With toxicity causing trouble in Overwatch, Steam's failure to address racist community groups, Campo Santo striking back against PewDiePie, the topic is on our mind. Even Bungie is reeling from a piece of armor that looks uncomfortably similar to a white supremacist logo. How should developers and publishers police their own communities? Should they? This is a touchy subject this week folks, so we're sending our positive thoughts your way. Keep up the good fight!

I've been listening to the Experience Points podcast off and on for a few years, but have lately been listening nonstop, including exploring their back catalog. Hosts Jorge and Scott are the real thing, hardcore and old-school gamers from that apply analysis of tropes, themes, setting, story, artistic creativity, characters, and much more through the games they've been playing or encountered at events (Games for Change, E3, PAX, etc.). From Goat Simulator to Titanfall, games showcased can include indie games you've never heard of to impressions of hotly anticipated titles they have had hands on experience with. Yet they accomplish exploring these ideas in an amalgam of light-hearted conversation, jokes, anecdotes, and experiences. These are the kind of guys you want to drink a beer with, play some videogames, and have a good time. Their podcast evokes just that.
