GameSpot GamePlay Episode 42: Put Some Pants On

The Bureau: XCOM Declassified writer Erik Caponi re-enters The Matrix to talk about the Xbox One and the art of video game storytelling.

GameSpot GamePlay Episode 42: Put Some Pants On

The Bureau: XCOM Declassified scribe Erik Caponi stops by to analyze the Xbox One reveal and prove his undying love for the A-Team, clad only in his underwear. He also manages to insult Kevin's grandmother in the process. Sadly, Danny O'Dwyer, Tom Mc Shea, and Tyler Winegarner are hardly quick to jump to Kevin's rescue, given how busy they are discussing the ins and outs of game writing, going off on Call of Duty, and demonstrating their world-class talking skills.

If the rumor are true about used games i will not be buying this system. I'm already pissed that the $300 I spent on XBLA games wont be transferring to the xbox one.

I've been a console gamer my entire life and for the first time, I can't see a reason to invest in another console.  I'm now saving money to put together a nice PC gaming rig and that's pretty much the end of it.

this show seems like 8 Out Of 10 Cats because it's basically a panel talk show disguised as a gameshow where the points don't really matter.

The Bureau: XCOM Declassified is going to be a terrible game, like DNF and Aliens: Colonial Marines. This is their 3rd try re-doing the gameplay and  4th year working on it. How many games do you know that changed 3 times and became good?


I also heard that it's going to try to drum up some controversy to boost sales. I hate when people do that, just to find a way to sell their crappy games.

Wow that story was horrifying. I'm watching the video now. You never expect something like this happen over there in UK.

Sure this tv talk can sound cool and such, but not even most of those things work here in EU. It feels like they dont care much EU people, they should be multicultural and understand that other people do spend money in there console than the USA people.

When Kevin sang, it sounded like Carolyn's normal voice. No disrespect, only taking notice.

@MuggyTadpole You should stop by and do that. Actually, can you video that? If you do, I'll give you a shoutout and link to the video in next week's show!

@Kitmas That's exactly what it is! I love British panel shows like Have I Got News for You and Just a Minute; that's why GamePlay is structured the way it is :)

@OldSchoolPlaya@PodXCOM Well, wait for a demo or read a review, at least! If they don't want you to have a demo, it means they know it's bad. And keep in mind they said this game will not play anything like XCOM: Enemy Unknown.

@DeKuip Sure when ps4 talk about tv things I dont care much. That is why you should only give us somewhat irrelevant info that we dont get. I know they splice this whole thing in two Media here and games for E3, but it is still useless info mostly to us. They could give us something more and some gameplay at least. Or maybe they should done this at all. Sure this thing wasnt for me and I understand that. Still I felt let down all the same, like so many others.
