Longer the wait, the more it hurts
Welcome back! It’s another Tuesday, which means tonight is a new episode of Spot Dodge: A Live Nintendo Podcast exclusively on Destructoid. Subjects: It’s been a whole year of disappointing video games. From CrossfireX to Fall of Babylon, in tonight’s opening topic we discuss the worst game of the year. The crew also discuss the latest Pokemon Scarlet and Violet leaks and Square Enix’s big NFT blunder. All that and more at Spot Dodge!
Video game development cycles are getting longer. The days to receive three Uncharted game over five years is over. So when a highly anticipated game ends up being aggressively mediocre, it hurts, even more so, to know that you won’t see the studio’s next effort for five to ten years down the road. The latest example that comes to mind is Gotham Knights.
WB Montreal’s last game was Arkham Origins. A vastly underrated Batman games i love So of course I was extremely eager to play Gotham Knights. Unfortunately, it wasn’t worth the ten-year wait. Let’s talk about it!
Our lovely cast from around the web: Brett Medlock (me) and Mary Stowe from Destructoid, John Friscia from The Escapist, Greg Bargas from PC Invasion and Brett Larsen, our extra special guest. Behind the scenes, Gamurs’ Eric Weichhart is live editing this week’s show.
