RDGH - Episode 14: Why NOT to threaten airlines, Sony sells Square stock, What’s wrong with Wii U, more Square JRPGs

It's a new week and a new RDGH! Episode 14's a great listen, so join host KGB Garri Bagdasarov (You read right; #BelieveInGarri's hosting!) The (Dethroned) Commissioner Glenn Gordon, Ben Sterling, and the Prodigal Son himself, Ernest Lin, as they discuss the world of gaming.

Why on earth did Sony sell its Square Enix shares? (Bonus points for catching all the alliteration in this week's title, by the way).
Wii U only sold half of what Sega's Dreamcast did in the same timeframe. What's wrong with the Wii U, and how can it possibly be fixed (naturally, the cast can't talk about this without mentioning the possibility of a Pokémon MMO)?
Speaking of Square earlier, the company is back on track to produce more JRPGs going forward. Is this a good thing for them?

RDGH - Episode 13: Dane Returns, Xbox One price cut, Rock Band to new gen, #KevinButler2015, Rant on Anita Sarkeesian’s award

Surprise! The Racial Diversity Gaming Hour's original host-with-the-most, Dane Smith, joins us all the way from South Korea as a special guest for one episode only! Join him and host Glenn "The Commissioner" Gordon, KGB Garri Bagdasarov, and Ben Sterling as he explains what being a gamer in South Korea is like.

Xbox has gotten ANOTHER retailer price cut from some UK retailers, making those units comparable in price to the PS4. What does this mean for Xbox as a whole and for PlayStation? Harmonix's CEO announced plans to bring Rock Band and Dance Central to PS4 and Xbox One! PlayStation's advertising has felt lackluster since the departure of Kevin Butler, but could everyone's favorite Vice President of _______ return?

Afterward, Dane has a good rant about Anita Sarkeesian, who won a 2014 Game Developer's Choice award. We're all for more females in video games. In fact, we're all for more of EVERY kind of person in video games, but listen to find out why we think the issue should not be forced.

Also, stay tuned at the end for a special treat from E3 2010!

Racial Diversity Gaming Hour - Episode 12: Power Rangers, Pokémon still going; WHY NO POKÉMON MMO? Megaservers for MMOs

It's a brand new week and a brand new RDGH as host Glenn "The Commissioner" Gordon, Ben Sterling, and KGB Garri Bagdasarov discuss the long runs of Pokémon and Power Rangers. Of course, they can't start talking about Pokémon without hanging around the topic for awhile, discussing the new evolutions, and why there are TOO MANY FLIPPIN' POKÉMON! Also, why, Nintendo, have you not made a full-fledged Pokémon MMO yet?


It's not all Pokémon though. Guild Wars 2 is getting new megaservers. Should we see these on more MMOs? Why aren't more studios embracing the Vita?

Find this out and more in this new episode. Oh, and The Commissioner apologizes for his moment of dyslexia in the beginning: "How has your been week, Garri?" Really, Glenn Gordon?

Racial Diversity Gaming Hour - Episode 11: Game delays vs. patches; Ben rants; new Deus Ex incoming? More inFAMOUS

Join host Glenn "The Commissioner" Gordon, Ben Sterling (Shillabeer-Hall), KGB Garri Bagdasarov, and the Prodigal Son, Ernest Lin (who is prodigal no more!) as we discuss the gaming world at large.

Is it better to delay the release of a game or release it and patch it later? Are the glitches worth it? Then, Ben has a good ol' British rant about Assassin's Creed. A new Deus Ex name has been trademarked; could a new installment be on the way? And, of course, inFAMOUS is still worth talking about.
The intro music this episode is a remix of Dovahkiin, Skyrim's theme, by the talented Brandon Strader over at Overclocked Remix. Download the full track and check out other great remixes from other games at OCremix.org.
