The GameGrin GrinCast! Episode 38 - The Gaming Oscars and Gaming Diversity

The GameGrin GrinCast! Episode 38 - The Gaming Oscars and Gaming Diversity

This week on the GrinCast we've gone a bit Oscar crazy with two main topics inspired by the awards ceremony. We ask which game / game series is most unappreciated, just like poor Leo DiCapro. We also tackle another big issue from the Oscars - racial diversity. We're wondering if games do enough to promote diversity among their protagonists and characters?

All this plus discussion about Far Cry PrimalShenmue IIIQuantum Break and the Nintendo NX.

As always if you have any comments put them in the box below or contact us on our new Twitter handle @GrinCast.

Remember, we're also on iTunes!

Re streaming the cutscenes from Quantum Break, it smells like an anti-piracy move. If I have a PC with 5TB of space and 300mb/s speed, I should be able to download the cutscenes as I please. What if my internet is slow and I'd rather wait 5 days for them to download than watch a buffering video? What if my internet is down for an evening? What if I don't have a 4K monitor and I'd rather get the cutscenes in 1080p? The option of streaming is cool, but when it's the only option, it smells like poo. For me, that smells like anti-piracy poo.

If I had been in the pod, I could have talked about games that get undeserved recognition for hours.
