Jump Chat Roll - Episode 5 - Microtransactions
Jump Chat Roll is the comedy gaming podcast where Rob and Shaun take a weekly irreverent look at some of the bigger topics in gaming, waving their opinions about and hopefully entertaining you as much as they entertain themselves.
In the fifth episode of Jump Chat Roll, we take a look at microtransactions. As a seemingly pervasive phenomenon in gaming, we look at whether microtransactions are becoming more cynical as more developers move toward free-to-play and freemium models. We also ask whether anyone would care if Dhalsim was sponsored by McDonald's, muse about the parallels between loot boxes and shopping for trousers, and scratch our heads about picking a discussion topic that Rob is patently unable to pronounce correctly.
As always, there's feisty language, dark humour and maybe even some serious points about gaming. Maybe.
