Episode 91: Year of the Video Game
This week Josh would really like you to rate the show on iTunes, Jay would really like Josh to take detective games seriously, and Rowan would really like everyone to stop talking about Risen 3. Plus, Fallout: New Vegas, The Black Glove, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, Mario Kart DLC, and a whole lot of “games writing bias” talk after the hour break!
This episode was brought to you by Risen 3: Titan Lords. Too bad it’s not called Risen 3: Time Lords, because how cool would that be.™
The Josh and Jay Show featuring Rowan Kaiser is a weekly talk show hosted by friends Joshua Doan, Jay Pullman and bitter game critic, Rowan Kaiser.
Joshua and Jay began the podcast as means to entertain and engage a mature audience interested in deep, long-form discussions about video games and video game criticism from a friendly, unpretentious point of view. Sometime later, professional media critic and author Rowan Kaiser (AV Club, Salon, Ars Technica, IGN) joined our crew, solidifying the unique dynamic we enjoy today: two smart & funny gamers, a wry critic savant, and a soundboard. Our goal is the same today as when we started; to provide entertainment and insightful commentary on video game culture in a talk radio format including on-air games, bits, and interviews.
Despite Rowan’s best efforts we have produced reverent, funny and consistent entertainment for nearly three years with guests from a variety of fields in the video game industry including: Lucas Pope (Papers, Please), Kirk Hamilton (Kotaku), Cory Banks (Managing Editor PC Gamer, Gamers with Jobs), Gus Mastrapa (Wired), Johnnemann Nordhagen (Gone Home), Stu Horvath (unwinnable.com, Wired), Brad Gallaway (gamecritics.com, drinkingcoffeecola.blogspot.com), Taylor Cocke (Riot Games).
The Josh and Jay Show featuring Rowan Kasier joined the Unwinnable.com network in July 2014. All previous episodes of the show can be found here.
