    Ep. 137 - The PlayStation Showcase disappoints but not as much as Gollum

    On Spectator Mode Podcast episode 137, we talk about the lackluster PlayStation showcase, while Marvelous hosted its own showcase that gave the gamers what they wanted. The Xbox ABK acquisition continues on, but now another country has backed the company, while Relic Entertainment lays off some staff and Gollum releases in such a terrible state that the game is a colossal flop.

Awesome Show

Spectator Mode is a great show that offers the best commentary on the gaming landscape today. They offer a good perspective on the top stories and keep it on point. Too many shows go down a rabbit hole on a subject and quickly lose sight of their audience. Spectator Mode keeps their audience in mind and keep things interesting. I highly recommend this podcast for anyone interested in the gaming industry.
