Super Jump Podcast: Of Politics and Platformers
Season 2, Episode 4
Woah, they went there. Join James and Mitchell as they very uncomfortably voice their political opinions on the issue of video games and gun violence… existing at the same time. There’s even a discussion about Metal Gear Survive and the controversy surrounding it — phew!
The 3D-platformer seems to be back; how does it compare with other genres who haven’t been absent for nearly as long? James and Mitchell discuss the evolution — and current state — of the genre.
Finally, Mitchell explains what a Hot Topic is for folks who don’t have them in their countries (spoiler: they’re wack).
