Niche Gamer-cast Episode 14 – Five Guys, Zoe Quinn, and Journalistic Integrity

vivian james 08-24-14-1

So you’re a regular visitor at Niche Gamer? The obscure games, the niche games, the weird games, whatever you want to call them, we love them and we know that you love them as well. We only cover these games on our regular feed, and we only cover them on our podcast as well.

Topic of the Week

So the Zoe Quinn scandal is still producing new fires, despite the controversy going on for more than a week. While other gaming outlets refuse to comment on the fiasco and the blatant lack of journalistic integrity, the staff at Niche Gamer sat down for a live podcast with our fans, where we talked this out together, in a civil manner. We dedicated this entire podcast to just talking about her.

Instead of censoring the discourse, we are encouraging it, and championing the truth in the gaming industry, which is what we always strive for here at Niche Gamer. You will never find us hiding behind our jobs while we protect our friends (if any) in the gaming industry, we hold ourselves to a higher standard than the majority of other websites have proven themselves to do.

Bear in mind, this is a live recording so there might be dead air, delayed responses, etc. between us and our fans/listeners. We had a female member of /v/ join us and talk with us live, and we corresponded to fans throughout the live show.

Songs Featured in This Podcast

To potentially motivate you guys even further, I added the track “Even Farther” by Miki Higashino from Suikoden 2 for the opening track. The closing theme is Reminiscence, which is also by Miki Higashino and Suikoden 2, a track I hope will take everyone back to a time when gaming was simpler, and just about having fun.
