Mashcast #156: Deja Vu

This week feels like Déjà vu since it feels like we are revisiting topics that should be long dead. Rockband is returning and dropped some info about your instruments. Microsoft if making Fable Legends a Windows 10 store exclusive for PC, and we’re pretty sure they’ve tried this before. Also, Gamergate is a topic again and we’re not really sure why. What we do know is that if you try to just play it straight when reporting on Gamergate you’re going to catch shit from both sides.

Besides that we do have some fresh things to talk about. YouTube gaming has launched with little-to-no fan fair. Also, Cliffy B finally gives us a taste of the game he’s been working on: Lawbreakers. Jarret, being in love with FPS, gives his thoughts on Lawbreakers and talks about why Lawbreakers, Overwatch, and even Team Fortress 2 can live in the same space. We also talk about MGS5 microtransations, Kojima worship, and more.

Hosts

Jarret is Executive Director as well as one of the founding members of Mash Those Buttons. He plays all types of games, but tends to lean more toward FPS, Stealth, and Racing Games. Currently too involved in Overwatch.

Host of WoW! Talk! and The Tauren & The Goblin. Sometimes known as the Video Games Public Defender. Wants to play more Destiny and Marvel Heroes but WoW is all-consuming. Decent F2P Hearthstone player. Sad that he lost the Wii that had Wrecking Crew on it. Would be happy if the only game ever made was M.U.L.E. Gragtharr on Skywall-US. Garresque on Ravencrest-US.

Video game nerd and connoisseur of conversation......
