Welcome to the latest episode of the Digitally Uploaded Podcast!

This month we talk about the sorry state of game development, in light of everything that has been going on with Microsoft shuttering studios (and then immediately looking for more acquisitions)

Then we discuss the controversy surrounding Ubisoft’s upcoming Assassin’s Creed game set in Japan, focusing on the historical character Yasuke, the first African samurai. We chat about the importance of accurate historical representation and the backlash against the game’s protagonist.

And, of course, we discuss all the big game releases for June. What’s on your agenda?
