in this episode, we discuss how games are discussed, and make a plea for you to be a part of the discussion. What is a "game review?" Do we review games? Why do so many people try to redefine "review" so they can be reviewers when it is convenient and "not reviewers" when it isn't? What the hell are we doing here?
