Thanks for checking out the first episode of GG, our new gaming podcast here at eciov. In this episode Sean and Josh talk about Rockstar’s newest entry in the Grand Theft Auto series: Grand Theft Auto 5. We found the game to be pretty vulgar but innovative at the same time. So sit back, relax – maybe even grab your controller – and listen to us discuss the basics about Grand Theft Auto 5.
If you’re already playing the game, we also mention a few tips that we’ve found helpful throughout our time with the game. Keep in mind, this is only part one. In part two we’ll get more into the strategy of the game and break into the online aspect that just opened up this week. We want to give the servers time to settle before we can really review the online portion of the game.
Our hosts, Sean and Josh, both work in the technology industry and spend way too much of their time playing games. From consoles to tabletop, they’re interested in all styles of gameplay. Josh’s first video game was Pitfall! from the Atari 2600 first released in 1982. Sean’s first game was Duck Hunt on the NES first released in 1985. Apparently Josh’s parents were cooler than Sean’s… or less responsible… hard to say.
As we move forward with the podcast, we’ll cover a wide range of gaming topics, bring other gamers in for interviews, and do some Q&A from our listeners. We want your feedback. Sure, we’re doing this show because we love gaming, but we’re also here to entertain you. If we mess up, we want you to tell us. If you have a question, ask it. Feel free to leave a comment and we’ll get back to you.
