A very good series. Just keep it going. I'm not sure why, but Gamespot has the tendency to cancel fairly new shows, then introduce something new, just to cancel that too after 2, 3 months. By the way, there is a typo in the description: "Our search to explore THE culture of gaming..."

Great show! I only missed Dungeonland! Although, Paradox is the publisher, but the devs are from Brazil, does that count?

It might not be a case of the Stockholm syndrome, but when games kidnap your spare time and won't let you go (because they're so good and addictive) and you grow to like them nonetheless, I don't know what else to call it.

This is an awesome idea for a series, it's a fascinating look at game development and the cities where it happens. @shaunmc you should totally do Montreal or some other Canadian cities...Edmonton, maybe?

This series is like a travel show but with games in focus.

 @shaunmc Can you do Germany, Poland or Canada or maybe more American cities please?

To bad Paradox Interactive has had some horrible failures when it comes to publishing (Look no further than the buggy disaster that was Sword of the Stars II).

I love my city. It was nice to see DICEs office from the inside. I see it everyday from the bus going to work.

This excellent show shows that several intriguing strategy games often come from Europe.

notch said that console gaming is for passing time, and for him PC gaming is real gaming, for me its the other way around, i like console gaming way more than PC gaming. (my opinion)

 @Baudrillard85 We'll definitely do a Montreal episode at some point. Just a matter of when!

 @Ensamheten  @shaunmc We have lots of cities we want to do! Montreal, Seattle, Los Angeles--there's quite a long list.

 @superleggera If you're into high taxes, feminism and smug this is the place to be. I don't there is any city that can match us in these categories ;). People love taking pride in what others have achieved and we always think we are an inspiration to the world.

Yup, it was a great show of Stockholm Sweden. Didn't know the three devs were all based there.

 @Tak666 Yes! I love Warsaw! :3 I have friends there that I like to visit in the summers, and Polish is so beautiful! :) Although I've been robbed there on three separate occations.. but all cities have their share of low-lifes, after all.

 @Ensamheten  @superleggera It's a beautiful city, but it was already pretty cold when we shot this in September that I can't imagine what the winters are like.

 @snaketus  @tapper101 If (When?) we do an episode on Finland, it's gonna be tough for me to not make the entire episode centered around Future Crew. :p

 

But there's quite a few big name developers there, and an interesting story with the old guard of classic action games (Remedy) competing with the heavyweight newcomers of mobile with Rovio.

 @shaunmc From Wikipedia (so you know it has to be true :P): "Despite its northern location, Stockholm has relatively mild weather compared to other locations at similar latitude, or even farther south." It's usually not much colder than -10 degrees Celsius (14 Fahrenheit) and although the temperature can sometimes get down to -20 degrees Celsius (-4 Fahrenheit) and be lots of snow and ice everywhere it's not bad and we get the whole spectrum of seasons, which is nice.

 @shaunmc    we had the coldest summer/fall in like 30 years, it's usually a bit warmer. It's cold in the winter but every other year we don't even get any snow in stockholm so it's not as bad as siberia or the northern parts of scandinavia :P and in the summertime the sun barely sets, never ending daylight
