PB & Jason Issue 15: Band Together

This time, PB & Jason is back and in full force... As in not about one specific game!

Surprise! There's a press release early on in this one.

Lots of news and news opinions after that, along with a little bit of Wii, Kinect, and Move talk to go along with that.

Follow it all up with a teeny bit of talk about RUSE, Blue Dragon: Awakened Shadow, and Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light, along with an appeal for subject-oriented listener mail! What makes a series a series? What doesn't? When is a series a franchise? Is Kirby's Epic Yarn part of the Kirby series? I discuss these ideas a little, but be sure to write in your opinion, too, in the comments or in emails. As always, it's jasonr_AT_pixlbit_DOT_com. If you can't figure that out, leave a comment and I'll help you do it.

Like always, you can find the show's (brief) notes in the forum thread.

No rubber bands were stretched in the making of this podcast.

Why am I talking about rubber bands?

I think that we are all just gamers, despite the varying level of intensity towards the hobby/pastime that we might have. A stamp collector is just a stamp collector, and it doesn't matter what type of stamps he collects, or what he focuses on his collection.

However if I were to define the extremes of the gaming populace, I would say that there are those that just play video-games, and then there are those that follow the video-game industry attentively, and also play video-games of course, and also collect them. To me the latter are what could be called either a hardcore, or an enthusiast gamer.

A Sonic game is a Sonic game only because it is part of the franchise. For example, Sonic Pinball Party isn't really a Sonic game in the vain of the Sonic the Hedgehog series, but it's a Sonic game within the Sonic franchise.

It's all about how carefully worded we speak out about them that makes the difference, but we usually infer a lot of definitions behind our opinions because we all assume we all know what we are referring to. Even if that isn't really the case. It's just improper linguistic communication because we are trying to convey our opinions as fast as possible so as to keep the attention of those listening, or reading.
