GF Podcast 33: Pre-order Bonuses, EA’s Hero Complex
Between Electronic Arts’ insistence that Dungeon Keeper Mobile failed because it “innovated too much” and newly announced pre-order incentives for Alien: Isolation, we’ve got a lot to talk about on this week’s GameFront Podcast.
EA seems to have a constant tendency to cast itself as the hero that wants to usher in a new gaming utopia, if only it weren’t for those pesky “gamers” fouling everything up with their set-in-their-ways attitudes. After going through that whole fiction, we also touch on things like GameStop’s desire for EVEN MOAR pre-order content (pre-orders, as we’re known to say, are terrible), our time with preview builds of Gods Will Be Watching, and some great games you should consider picking up during the current summertime release drought.
