Racial Diversity Gaming Hour 39: Constructive criticism; No parity for The Division

What's up, gamers? We're a little late this week due to our own scheduling issues, but better late than never! Don't worry. We'll be back to our regular schedule going forward. We recorded Saturday evening, so some information in this episode may be out of date.

This week, join me (Glenn Gordon), Ben Shillabeer-Hall, and Fraser Miller as we address some criticism from a longtime listener. We explain our positions on different points of contention, and would like to invite anyone who can further elaborate on this criticism or has other criticism to tweet us @TheRDGH or send us an email at podcast@psu.com. We want to be the best RDGH we can be! Just keep it constructive.
RDGH figured that Titanfall should not have been made exclusive to Xbox One. We also complained about the exclusivity of Rise of the Tomb Raider. Contrarily, we told Xbox One gamers to suck it up with regard to the exclusive content on Destiny. Sounds unfair to us said that way, but there's much more to that story.
We've also repeatedly called IGN out for certain unreliable content, yet continue to cite IGN as a source. What's up with that?
Then, of course, the burning question: Do RDGH's crew members like sunlight?
We don't want to leave things on a critical note, so Ben spills the details about a Final Fantasy event that occurred in London. Look for FF14 updates!
If you want an Xbox One, now is the time! There is a great deal going around that we discuss, as well as Xbox One's November update, which supports backgrounds. Also, Forza Horizon 2 has been very successful so far, driving Xbox One sales up.
Also, Ubisoft has confirmed that The Division, its upcoming first-person shooter, will run in full 1080p resolution on PlayStation 4, regardless of its maximum capability on Xbox One. Finally, Ubisoft!
Finally, the Evolve Alpha is this weekend, and everyone should get involved. It's free--all you have to do is get selected.
Our intro this week is I Want Candy by Bow Wow Wow. Buy this classic hit on iTunes and Amazon if you haven't already! For our ending this week, we're happy to bring you "The Sound of Speed," a remix of Green Hill Zone by OA and Scaredsim on Overclocked Remix. We used a part of the song a couple episodes ago, and loved it enough that we thought you should hear the whole thing. Enjoy it at the end of the episode, and head to OCremix.org to download it and many other great video game music remixes in full, for free. If you like The Sound of Speed, go to sos.ocremix.org to check out the full album of Sonic remixes by the same name.
All this and more comprises another great episode of RDGH! Tune in next week for episode 40, and don't be a racist.
