On this week’s podcast, we discuss recent allegations of abuse in the games industry, along with their fallout and ongoing reporting. We dig into why it’s taken the industry so long to have it’s “MeToo” moment and what we can try to do to make our spaces safer for everyone. We dive deep on new updates to Rainbow Six Siege, the overwhelming scope of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and even how fun and addictive idle games can be. Plus, is the original Rainbow Six novel any good? Well…. it’s complicated.
