Co-operative Gameplay

by G. Christopher Williams

23 August 2010

Our regular contributors discuss varying kinds of co-op style play from the living room to the arcade to multiplayer online and the kinds of dynamics that these experiences create among players.
 

Like last week, the Moving Pixels podcast crew is focusing on a broader topic in gaming for the week, co-operative gameplay. 

Our regular contributors, G. Christopher Williams, Nick Dinicola, and Thomas Cross, discuss varying kinds of co-op style play from the living room to the arcade to multiplayer online and the kinds of dynamics that these experiences create among players.
  
Rick Dakan is on a short hiatus from the podacst, but he should be back with us in a few weeks.  In the meantime, I am sitting in as host this week.  So, be gentle, it’s my first time.

 

This podcast is also available via iTunes.
