It’s time for publishers to stop joking around and accept that they probably won’t make the next Destiny. And repeated attempts to do just that are hurting the game industry.
This week on Spot On, Tamoor and Lucy discuss Redfall’s unfortunate launch and its failed attempts to incorporate Destiny-lite mechanics that may have stood in the way of the game becoming something real greatness. They also discuss how publisher Bethesda, when it comes to trends, has done something silly, like Marvel’s Avengers and Gotham Knights before it.
Spot On is a weekly news program that airs on Fridays in which GameSpot managing editor Tamoor Hussain and senior producer Lucy James talk about the latest in-game news. With the video game industry’s very dynamic and never-ending news cycle, there’s always something to be said, but unlike most news shows, Spot On will go Dive into one topic instead of summarizing all the news. Spot On airs every Friday.
