Welcome to GG Episode 6, our gaming podcast here at eciov. In this episode, Sean and Josh talk about Josh’s decision to keep Grand Theft Auto off our website. You can read more about that decision here. Ultimately it just comes down to a mutual respect between our readers/listeners/viewers and our writers. We like you and we want you to like us. If you have any questions about this decision, just hit us up on any of our social networks.
This is also our first episode doing a livestream for the podcast. You can view it at the bottom of this page if you’d rather watch versus listen. It was fun, so we’ll definitely keep doing them via YouTube livestreaming. Our typical recording schedule is Tuesdays at 9PM EST.
We also spend some time discussing Elder Scrolls Online (again)… but not too much this time, we promise. Mostly, we talk about the new Guitar Hero Live from Activision and Mortal Kombat X. Guitar Hero is a tremendous departure from the previous games, but you’ll have to listen to find out why. Mortal Kombat X seems to be the best yet. Building off its successful history, the new version has a lot of people excited. We’ll have to wait and see how that progresses over the next few weeks, but it’s worth picking up either way.
Our hosts, Sean and Josh, both work in the tech industry and spend way too much of their time playing games. From consoles to tabletop, they’re interested in all genres of gaming. 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.
