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.
