Pixels ‘PP1′ – State of the Industry

I’m not gonna lie: this “pre-pilot” is pretty heavy. Its aim is to cover the entire industry, in its current state, platform by platform, element by element, inch by inch. By the end of it though, you should have a clear idea of where the video games industry stands at the moment, and the tools you need to understand where it might be going. Also, we’re having fun while discussing all this. Sounds appealing? Great, jump in!

We’ll be back soon with what will probably more light hearted (but still super informative) shows.

The games we mention on the show:

  • PS3: Dark Souls, Uncharted series, Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare, Red Dead Redemption
  • Xbox 360: Fable 2, Crackdown, Viva Pinata, Halo 3, Modern Warfare 1 & 2, Red Dead Redemption
  • PS4: Uncharted, Blood Borne, Shadow of Mordor
  • XBox One: Halo Master Chief Collection and 5, Forza series, Shadow of Mordor, Titanfall
  • Wii U: All of Nintendo!
  • 3DS: Nintendo again! Fantasy Life, Kid Icarus, Animal Crossing, Bravely Default
  • PS Vita: Persona 4, Uncharted, Gravity Rush, Spelunky
  • Mobile: XCom, Hearthstone, Skyforce, The Banner Saga, Valiant Heart, Final Fantasy
  • PC: Everything! Portal 2, Civilization Beyond Earth, Papers Please, Diablo 3, Crusader Kings 2,
    Batman Arkham Asylum / City”

Podcasts new and old

Hi everyone, Patrick here. I recently left my job to do more podcasts. So more podcasts is what I’ll do, gosh darnit! And this site is where I’ll host the English language ones. These are the two shows you’ll find here… I really hope you enjoy them!

The Phileas Club is a show about the world

thephileasclub1400For those who aren’t familiar with it, The Phileas Club is an “truly international news-ish” show that I ran for four years, from 2008 to 2012, where I would invite regular people from different countries and cultures to tell us how the news was being reported on in their corner of the world. I really really loved this show, and I’m bringing it back soon (probably end of November).
In the mean time, you can listen to archives here, but I’m also counting on listener support through Patreon, which I believe to be a perfect match for this podcast. If you think the show is something you might be interested in, or if you’ve enjoyed it in the past, I invite you to go check out the Patreon page.

Pixels is a show about video games

We’ll soon record a “pre-pilot” episode in the next few days, but here’s the gist: my goal is to provide people who enjoy video games a bi-monthly podcast that will be a summary and analysis that will allow them to know and understand everything that’s been happening in gaming, without having to scour through hundreds of blog posts and news item.
The aim will have to present listeners with trustworthy news, opinion and analysis. Simple enough, but my hope is to do is in a super reliable and enjoyable way, while also keeping the format and frequency easy to manage for every type of gamer. Oh, and we’ll also have fun reviewing and talking about the games themselves. :)

You can subscribe to Pixels via RSS or iTunes, and listen to the super awesome theme song!
