Episode 337 : Pulling The Plug On Failed Games
When should you pull the plug on a “failed” game?
Greetings adventurers, and welcome to this weeks installment of The Surly Nerd! After our prelude, we head right into the weekly raid (our news roundup).
Kicking things off this week, Microsoft has come out swinging. The head of Xbox opens up about why they don’t want to develop VR for their upcoming console and why backwards compatibility is key to new console sales. China takes center stage next as we talk about a DC social media ad that was taken down, Tencent buys a huge stake in another game studio and we dive into what the next Batman movie is going to bring to audiences.
Also this week, Super Mario Maker 2 has an awesome update coming right around the corner. We wrap up all things news related as we talk about the Google Stadia, and the mistakes that are being made during its launch window.
Our Boss Room this week is about failing games: Why they happen, and when it’s time to pull the plug on them.
As always, we appreciate all our adventurers who listen to the show every week and we look forward to your feedback on what we discuss! (firstname.lastname@example.org!)
Grab a drink and settle on in for this weeks action packed episode of…The Surly Nerd!
