Mashcast Special Edition: Death of the Games Press

In the late 2000’s it felt like games journalism was booming, but over the past few years that feeling is starting to decline. Popular games websites are closing shop, others are expanding into other topics; ultimately becoming general entertainment websites that aren’t dedicated to gaming. On this special edition we explore this topic.

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.
