GameSpot Asia Beat Ep. 15 - Goodbye, 2012

We say farewell to 2012, recapping the highs and lows of the year.

4 Comments

This year has been quite a heck of a ride with its ups and downs, hasn't it? We've seen Kickstarter projects, lots of good studios closing down, Twitter movements that showcased gender inequality in the games industry, and companies doing silly things trying to pimp their titles and hardware. Also, there's still no sight of the Wii U on sale in Asia.

To offset this, there were tons of games that were our highlights. Joining myself and Randolph Ramsay on this mega-podcast of the year are Ian Gregory from Witching Hour Studios, Aloysius Low from CNET Asia, Bryan de Silva from RazorTV, and Sim Cheng Kai from SGCafe. We've done such a great job at covering 2012 that we needed to expand our podcast for an extra hour. That's right; it's THAT good.

So seriously, go listen to it now.
