A podcast... on time!?
By the suggestion of the graceful and delicately understated @Knight of Fafnir , KH-Vids Podcast hosts @Misty, @libregkd, and @Calxiyn are joined by podcast alum @Llaverion for a discussion about preorders! We establish gamers' reasons for preordering, why & how publishers and retailers encourage the practice, and preorders that have disappointed us. Made to feel guilty over her preorder for The Order 1886, @Misty addresses some of the backlash the game has received in the weeks before its release, which leads us into a discussion of the nature of game review scores and the value of playing a game for yourself.
Afterwards we launch into user-submitted questions! @Graxe poses the offer of a suddenly enormous and controllable tongue and @Eric Luna asks us to take the place of a video game protagonist. We also answer a Table Topics question about our most controversial personality traits, which somehow leads into a debate about the relative pros and cons of wearing socks.
Finally we plug some community news and projects! The Top 5 Winter Seasonal has begun, where video editors can earn a pin, a special Wonderland prize, and a chance to be featured on our homepage! We also remind everyone of the opportunity to suggest games for future Spoilercasts through our topic submission form! So if there's a game out there that you really feel we could have a good discussion about, definitely send it our way and we'll look into it.
