Groovy!

• June 28th, 2017

This week is the first part of our series on video game mascots.  Whether or not you feel games are made for kids, there's no denying that in the 80s and 90s the key to marketing to kids was with mascots, and video games used a ton of them.  In this first part Fred and Jam take the bigger companies that have a series of mascots and talk about their effectiveness and the games attached to them.

GHX Ep. 11: What Did You Play?

• June 19th, 2017

The biggest split between those that attend E3 and those that watch coverage online is the show itself.  Aside from this year, E3 usually ends on Monday when all the press conferences happen and the big announcements stop.  For those that attend the show it's the exact opposite with most missing the press conferences due to lack of invite or decent Internet, but you'll be able to play many of the games thanks to the show floor proper.  In this "returning from E3" episode, Fred and Jam are joined by guests Andy (42 Level One, Agents of Shieldcast) and Chip (The B-Team Podcast, Agents of Shieldcast, Knuckleballer Radio) to discuss the games Fred actually played at E3.  There's plenty of discussion to be had and lots of insight on the games we'll be seeing in late 2017/early 2018.  Note: This episode has no audio anomalies and a sound quality on par with what you have come to expect from our podcasts.

E3 2017: Press Conference Impressions Update

• June 18th, 2017

We decided to take down the Press Conference Impressions episodes from the main feed as they were not reflective of quality you've come to expect from GH101.  We did keep them archived, however, and they can be found at: http://gaminghistory101.com/e3-2017-bad

Please be sure to catch our better E3 2017 recordings as they are what you've come to expect from the show.  Cheers.

PrE3: Sony’s Legacy

• June 9th, 2017

Fred flies solo to discuss Time's recent interview with Sony's Jim Ryan, what his statements truly meant about Sony, and what he hopes to see from the company at this year's E3.  In an interesting hybrid with both a modern and retro show, there's plenty of discussion about Sony's legacy, both in games and in business, and how many sites may have been more harsh on Ryan's comments than necessary.

GHX Ep. 9 Addendum: That Dragon, Cancer

• May 23rd, 2017

After the comments shared on Gaming History X Episode 9, particularly in regards to the That Dragon, Cancer discussion, Eric felt more needed to be said especially from a different perspective.  We feel that all perspectives should be given equal opportunity to speak up, so Fred and Eric delve into the criticisms leveled at the game, it's religious content, and the developer's response to its sales.  The conversation goes a bit longer than necessary, but we felt it was worthwhile to keep unedited.  Note: Unlike most episodes, this show does not contain adult language.
