    The Player's Club Podcast Ep 64: Reacting to the Annapurna Interactive Showcase and EA Play Live

    The Player's Club Podcast Ep 64: Reacting to the Annapurna Interactive Showcase and EA Play Live

    What's Up, Playa?

    Welcome back to another episode of The Player’s Club Podcast! This time, Emmett Watkins Jr decided to ride solo, just because, so hopefully this episode is still pretty good (of course, let him know if it ain’t!). In this episode, I react to the announcements from both EA Play Live from a few days ago and Annapurna Interactive’s first-ever showcase. There weren’t many surprises, but there is plenty of good stuff to get excited about, so let’s dig in!

    But first, we have to get through the Whatcha Playin segment, which this time is solely comprised of Emmett’s thoughts on Ratchet and Clank: Going Commando, Metro Exodus, and Splitgate Arena Warfare.

    VGU.tv W.I.N Podcast Episode 47: Muppet Legends

    On this episode of WiN: scalpers can’t bot their way out of this one, the house of Titanfall is working on something new, and an iconic game lives again! Cue the Portal!

    Hello everyone and welcome to another Week In News podcast. It's another fireside chat with Graydon Webb and an enhanced edition of Allan Muir. This episode goes in many different directions with Allan going on a tangent about the Tintin cartoon, Graydon wishing a Muppets game by Respawn would get made, and so much more!

    The Player's Club Podcast Ep 63: The Hype of the Steam Deck and the Disappointment of the Activision Blizzard Lawsuit

    The Player's Club Podcast Ep 63: The Hype of the Steam Deck and the Disappointment of the Activision Blizzard Lawsuit

    What’s Up, Playa?

    Welcome back to another episode of The Player’s Club Podcast! We took a break, but this time Emmett Watkins Jr and Allan Muir are back to tackle too big topics. At the top of the show, we talk about the lawsuit that Activision Blizzard is currently facing and then later speculate and get hype over the existence of Valve’s Steam Deck. We’re on absolute opposite sides of the emotional spectrum today, but I know y’all understand.

    But that’s not all! We also take about plenty of games in the Whatcha Playin segment, where Emmett talks about his time with Arcadegeddon, Nickelodeon Kart Racers, and RE Village while Al talks about his time with Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu, The Simpsons Game, and Last Stop.

    ︎game dev doll on Twitter: "now that this is coming public, can yall stop telling black women that we're lying about the discrimination we face in this industry" 
    @blackgirlgamers: It's actually fascinating how this toxic culture in gaming has been...
    Janet Garcia on Twitter: "It's a cruel joke that women in the games industry are the most likely to be accused of not being passionate enough when they literally love an industry that does not love them back. I'm media, not a dev, but there are many days where I wish I could love something else."
    StefanieGD💀 on Twitter: "I would love nothing more than to just make video games as a woman without the sense of dread of knowing the industry I've dedicated my life to is a f*****g crime scene"
    @Teanah: The only thing that really makes me feel useful these days is to help other women and minorities stay in this industry. If you need to chat I am available, even if it’s just to privately listen.
    Katiechu on Twitter: "This Activision-Blizzard lawsuit should not be remotely surprising if you've ACTUALLY been listening to women & black women the last few years." 
    Zaire on Twitter: "The part of the Activision article involving Black women's treatment really bothered me. So, I'm publishing this article early about Black people in the TLOU franchise. It's no secret I love TLOU. Hell, I've applied three times as a writer. 1/x"

    The Player's Club Podcast Ep 62: The Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart Spoilercast (ft. Cam Hawkins & isoCristian)

    What’s up, playa?

    This week, Emmett Watkins Jr is joined this week by two awesome guests! Cameron Hawkins and Cristian Macias are on this week to talk about Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart. The game has been out for about a month at this point, so it’s about time to go through all of the plot points, new characters, and insane weapons of the latest entry in the 20-year franchise. Don’t worry, we’ll let ya know when we break into full-on spoilers, it only starts toward the back half of the show.

    But first, in the Whatcha Playin segment, Emmett talks about his time with Prey (2006), Christian talks about his time with Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, and Cam talks about his time with The World Ends with You.

    Emmett Watkins Jr and Allan Muir have returned to not only check up on their E3 Predictions from earlier in the year but to also predict the PlayStation State of Play we're hoping to see within the coming weeks. There are a lot of Ls taken, but even more when you consider the fact that some of the info we've discussed became outdated the very next morning! But hey, we still have a decent conversation, so tune in, yea?

    But before we gein into that main topic, we start with the Whatcha Playin segment where Al talks about his time with Fallout 76 & Spider-Man Remastered while Emmett talks about his time with Proteus and Need for Speed Hot Pursuit Remastered.
