Marvel's Avengers and other Live Services
Jonathan and Nick discuss Marvel's Avengers, Read Dead Online, and other live service games. In each are some successes, some failures, noble attempts, and bad behavior. A few rays of hope pierce the gloom.
A Good Listen!
I tend to listen to this podcast while working out. I don't always agree with their opinions, but what fun would that be? They have great guests!
As for the title "Literate Gamer"? I'm not sure that gives the best set of expectations. It is not stuffy or pedantic by any means. Sometimes it's more like "Gamer Ate Litter" because they do tend to talk some trash...
Keep up the good work gents!
Great podcast if you have an interest in video games!
