Ep 46 – Blacklists in Gaming

Episode 46. November 22nd, 2015. This week a Kotaku article was published about how the gaming media outlet had been blacklisted by both Bethesda (Fallout, Elder Scrolls) and Ubisoft (Assassin’s Creed, Watch Dogs). We discuss this for pretty much the entire podcast about how gaming media works and how blacklisting by companies is a thing.

Again, just for reference: This is all personal opinion with speculation and hypothesis into the inner workings of the gaming PR/Marketing/Media machine. Your mileage may vary, and don’t take anything we say as legal advice. Also, only you can prevent forest fires. 😀
