Free Play Ep. 15 | Streaming Vs. Single-Player


About This Episode

On this week’s episode, Bubba and Kate talk about the state of rich, single-player experiences in video games.  Is it worth it to go and buy a game if you’ve already had it spoiled by watching it online?  Do you think that there should be some sort of compensation paid to the developer if you decide not to buy the game yet watch an entire playthrough online?  Matt would have loved to be a part of this conversation, but he was busy being a super dad.
