Episode S8E4: Crossplay: The Next Frontier?

What if we all could play our entire personal libraries of games on a single device, and no longer need to shell out hundreds or thousands of dollars on separate consoles or a PC build? Or, at the very least, make it so that if two people have the same game but for different consoles, have the ability to still play with each other? We have the technology, and we're already starting to see games implement cross-platform play. How can this next step in gaming grow, and what's holding it back? Ep S8E4

Episode S8E3: Pay to Play 2.0

We look back on a topic we discussed back in Season 1, looking once again at the idea of pay-to-play in video games now in light of the lootbox mess games like Star Wars Battlefront 2 have wrought, where we have to ask ourselves: is this actually gambling? And what can developers do to try to get more money without resorting to slimy tactics? Ep S8E3
