Digitally Uploaded Podcast

This month on the Digitally Uploaded podcast, we grapple with the thorniest of issues currently plaguing video games: The role that AI is increasingly playing in the “creative” side of development. In short, it’s a problem. Potentially, a very big problem.

Then, to be more positive, we talk about excellent writing in games. What are some of the games over the years that have really stood out to us as examples of just purely good writing?

All that, plus our usual wrap of the most interesting-looking games coming out this month. Kick back and enjoy the two-hour show… and thanks as always for tuning in!
