Cat Context 45: The One Where We Fight About Player Generated Content
Ostensibly Liore sat down with Arolaide and Ellyndrial to talk about their beta experiences in Titanfall and The Elder Scrolls Online but what actually happened was… a long battle over the definition of “player generated content”.
Apparently sandbox MMOs are the way of the future because we players tear through studio-generated content too quickly, but what counts as player generated content? Is it building a house like EQN Landmark? Is PvP player generated content, and if so is that why games like Counterstrike are fun even years later?
We’re not sure, but we have differing opinions and we’re going to shout about it!
Also, there’s a little talk about the TESO and Titanfall betas. Just a bit.
This podcast was also livestreamed as a hangout on air:
It would be downright awesome if you gave us a vote on iTunes. :)
