Mashcast #163: Dropping Gems
On this week’s Mashcast Jarret sees fit to give some excellent advice (if he must say so himself) to Harmonix and Konami. They both need it as Harmonix appears to be reviewing their own product positively (bad form Harmonix, bad form…) and Konami is in denial about Kojima leaving the company. According to Konami, Kojima and his team are on a post-launch vacation, and they have no idea about his going away party. The same going away party that has tweets and Instagram posts associated with it. YouTube has content creators up in arms about YouTube Red – their new subscription service that will have content locked behind it. Let’s see the real power of YouTubers now.
Ubisoft is feeling pressure from Vivendi, who purchased over 10% of their stock last week. Ubisoft doesn’t welcome this advance, and is assuring their employees that they are doing everything they can to not be taken over. Ubisoft is also trying to get cozy with the PC community by joining OGA in hopes of better understanding the PC gaming community. It’s actually pretty simple to understand PC gaming, and we discuss points on that. Actually we discuss everything I just mentioned and more on this episode with guest host Jovan Branch.
