    DEBATABLE 137 - Permadeath? with Daniel Tayag

    Long-time friend of the show (and real-life bestie) DANIEL TAYAG joins me for what might be the last episode of Debatable. We talk our favorite video games and gaming experiences of 2018. We talk the juggle of life vs. long duration games, being a Paragon, loot boxes, depth and quality of gaming in both the indie scene and AAA, and how much is a short game worth. We touch on GTA Online, Destiny 2, Overwatch, Red Dead Redemption 2, Fallout, Dead Rising, Horizon Zero Dawn, Spider-Man, A Way Out, Hellblade, and Overcooked.

    Finally, Dan and I talk about the State of the Podcast and the possible future.

Great Interviewer

This podcast covers a wide variety of topics. If it had to be categorized it would be a discussion of all things media. Even discussions I don’t have much interest in, such as video gaming, becomes an insightful listen. Gregory asks great questions, which probably sounds vague. I guess the best way to describe is that the questions are not vague or dull or meant to fill dead air, and they are questions Gregory has a genuine interest in knowing the answer and or response. Also, he has a knack for not going by a script, the episodes have a natural flow, a discussion between friends that just goes where it goes. He recently completed 100 episodes and I believe that episode would be a good start for new listeners, specifically to hear his introduction for that episode, which sums up the show better than I can in written word. I look forward to future episodes.
