EpicBattleCry - Should You Get Into Game Journalism?

Today on EBC we tackle a tough question from Butch Greuel (@butchgreuel) about whether or not getting into gaming journalism is a smart career choice. Considering the changing landscape of both gaming and game journalism, this ended up being a rather interesting discussion that any aspiring game journalist should check out.

Nice to know that the war chest has enough booty to cover EBAs expenses.

So, has all the conversation here gone to youtube?

Now days it apparently comes down to whether or not your opinions can be brought to you by Mountain Dew.

Pity that DK couldn't get his BTS idea through at GT. Think of how much cooler it would have been to have DK visiting dev studios, then the CoD pandering that Combat Facts was.

And yes, with the new format, I do relisten to EBC alot more:)

@ Hokum

To be fair, if Ccombat Facts was pandering to CoD I don't think pointing out how inaccurate and unrealistic CoD was would've been pointed out in almost every episode.

@chaosaeon What I ment was that Combat Facts was directed towards the CoD crowd and their page hits. Weather or not their facts were realistic or unrealistic is beside the point I was making; DK doing dev studio bts would have been cooler then combat facts

NBA2K15 Review

The NBA2K series has been one of the most dominant franchises in gaming. While some sports franchises rely on exclusivity deals to corner the market, NBA2K was able to do it the old fashioned way: make a far superior product to your competitor, and force them to close shop. This dominance allowed NBA2K to end the last console generation as the unchallenged king of basketball video games. 2K began the new console generation with another solid entry in the series. While NBA2K14 for the PS4 and…
