DarkCast Ep 37: Eight Out of Ten


Continuing with the revamped topical format for the DarkCast, this week's episode focuses on the critical process of reviewing video games. What do we think about when playing a game for review? Do review scores matter? Why are Darkstation's reviews divided into sections. Answers to these questions and more await you, dear listener, but we only scratch the surface and may very well continue the conversation next week.

Changes are a foot on the DarkCast and there's no end to them in sight. So what would you like to hear/see/touch/taste/smell on the DarkCast?
