Episode 3 covers the medium for video games and it’s many possible forms from here on out. How soon will we reach the cloud and will it ever replace consoles?
Great video, mate. Very informative.
Woo, great video, I am filled wit knowledge now and i feel a little less uneducated about the gaming market lol
I love these rant videos! At first I thought it was going to be you just bitching about stuff but they’re really good.
I agree that downloading games in some form is the way of the future and I’m glad you mentioned Steam as I’m a major steam whore now. I never used to be and it still does have alot of issues. One of the biggest is having to mess with port forwarding sometimes and if you don’t know your way around a pc, it can be really offputting.
There is one thing that Steam does which I really like that I don’t see in console games. When they have special deals or events, they spread it across several games. Most noteably for me was the Potato Sack event around the launch of Portal 2. The idea is genius. It makes people buy other games, alot of indie titles too, at dirt cheap prices and play them. We get cheap games, they make money and indie game developers get their stuff on display.

Thanks for all the positive comments man. I’m really glad you appreciate the videos. Sorry I didn’t get back to you sooner I’m kind of sick and back in my work-week. Another video was supposed to be made by now…so hopefully that will up soon and I’ll stop feeling like death. In any case! Glad you enjoy the vids. Also glad that people seemed to like this video. I spent a hell of a while writing it and about 3/4 through I thought “Oh shit am I the only one who’s going to enjoy this?” XD
was unfair comparsing the game gear has no wifi …why are you activating the wirless connection it sux the battery …when i play with my 3ds or psp and the wifi is off i got about 6 hours play time

It’s not really unfair because the Game Gear is a close approximation of the Sega Master System (the prior gen console.) It’s like if we were to compare the 3DS to a portable 360. With that analogy in mind, doesn’t it make sense why the Game Gear eats batteries so quickly and why this comparison was fair?
Also, I’m not sure a first model Game Gear would have won…
