Blizzard: Donomas

Merry Etcetera everyone!

Whatever your holiday predilection, we at Player’s Guide hope you are happy and safe this season. Considering our recent weather, we have a very apropos podcast for you – one about blizzards! Sorry, one about Blizzard – you know, the video game developer?

From Diablo to World of Warcraft to Overwatch, whenever Blizzard makes a move, they codify a genre. It is impossible to discuss the landscape of modern video games with our discussing Blizzard, so we at Player’s Guide decided to give them their due.

Jackson and Daniel are joined by Donovan, who has finally returned from Calgary for the season.

Your three hosts have some recommendations for you:

This week you should play the complete Bioshock Collection 

This week you should also play Shadow of the Colossus

This week you should watch Krampus

Some bookkeeping. We reference some remarks made in the past by Blizzard employees. For the sake of showing our work, here are links to the dialogue in question:
