SDR – Episode 2: Are Video Games Art?

GameStop & meth, Wild West reveal, Crash Bandicoot & more!

 

by Slow Day Radio - May 15, 2017

Welcome to Episode 2 of Slow Day Radio.

Today, on The Patch Notes (gaming news)

– GameStop sells used video game with meth to 11-year-old

– New Thief Game & Movie?

Half Life 2 virtual reality launches!

– Leaked Wild West photo is not what it appears to be

This week’s 5-Minute-Review game is Crash Bandicoot for the PlayStation 1!

On our Main Quest, we discuss the age-old question: are video games art? If so, what about games like Pong? Madden 2017? Ori & the Blind Forest? How are they different and similar to traditional art forms?

Finally, in our Community Shout-Out:

Thanks Peter Reese (@PArealtor84) and Tyler Burgett (@TylerBurgett)!

Also, check out this sweet looking new 2D roguelite platformer: Dead Cells.

Lastly, Nabisco…or Oreos…if you’re reading this, how many retweets for a lifetime supply of Oreos? A podcast needs cookies!

As always, we love hearing from you! Be sure to like & comment on Facebook.com/SlowDayRadio or tweet us @SlowDayRadio!

(Note to parents: some of the games mentioned in today’s podcast carry a mature rating and are not suitable for children. Always be sure to check a game’s content rating before purchasing for yourself or a child!)
