Goliath's Gaming Corner is back for the new year! David and his guest go Into fan bases and how they can make or break a medium, and how much power a “fan base” really has. They go over some of the most toxic kinds of fans and the impact they can have on new comers to the content. We also discuss weather or not content creators have any obligations to fans and if so where should they draw the line. Games and topics include: League of legends, Fortnight, Harry Potter, Overwatch, and, of course, Magic the Gathering.
It's the last Goliath's Game Corner of the year and we're doing something a little unconventional. We take a step back from electronic gaming and talk about tabletop, specifically trading card games and the impact they've had through recent years. We're talking Pokemon, Magic the Gathering and Yu-Gi-Oh as well as gaming events and economics of trading card gambling. We tackle what made these giants so strong, and how they match up in a market focused on technology.
With the holiday season upon us, we look at games that missed the mark, and couldn't hold up to the hype. Games that were expected to be great this holiday season, but due to micro transaction, laziness, and quick production cycles, didn't live up to what they could have been. Goliath sits down with Patrick Hartz, and go over the games that could have been way better at the end of 2017.
Let's-a-go! In honor of Mario Odyssey's release, Goliath has invited over Ben Hamlin to talk about the Mario games they can afford to play. It's not just a nostalgia trip though, as the two discuss Mario's malleability and impact, as well as the sheer breadth of the plumber's brand from Mario Kart, to Mario Party to Yoshi's Island. And yeah, they gush about Luigi's Mansion a lot.
As we near the holiday season, Goliath and Zack talk about the games coming out this year that they're looking forward to the most. Can we expect any of these games under the tree this year? We talk Assassin Creed Origins, Battlefront 2, Call of Duty WWI, Pokemon and more! Deck the Halls this Halloween with Goliath's Gaming Corner.
Gaming is a constant battle between triple A big franchises and under the radar indie developers. Only one will reign supreme. Or both. There's room in the market for both. Goliath and his guest Zach Damerval talk the pros and cons of little fish in big ponds - by addressing development cycles, rushed products and funding. We talk Call of Duty, Last of Us, Rime, Portal, Undertale and Five Nights at Freddy's.
