Talk This! is a bi-weekly podcast about video games, old and new. Each episode, hosts Emma and Madelyn Paquette host a lively debate about two random video games (one old and one new) and then subsequently make up their own by mashing the best elements of each.
In this episode, Madelyn and Emma discuss Mass Effect: Andromeda and Bully and talk about two very different kinds of video game controversies. Also featuring alien acne, loop-de-loop hurricanes, and getting swallowed up by the floor.
I think the reason why games are released before they're ready is that there is the possibility of fixing it after release. You can't do a patch for movies or books, once it's out there, it's just not an option. So I'd imagine that when studios are under pressure to release a game, they have to weigh the backlash they'll face for the bugs in the games against the backlash they'll get for pushing back the release date. Obviously with Andromeda they made the wrong choice. It did make for hilarious youtube videos though.
