Episode 58 – What Should Gamers Do About Hogwart's Legacy? Gamers Week Podcast

Even though the developers have made sincere attempts to distance Hogwarts Legacy from J.K. Rowling (the controversial Harry Potter creator who is now infamous for loudly espousing transphobic views), the author still stands to profit from the title's sale. So should gamers boycott? We attempt to consider all sides of the issue as we delve into this messy topic that has much bigger implications than just one video game.We'll also be discussing Sony's announcement that the company is closing the PlayStation Plus Collection, how Amazon is reportedly planning a Marvel-style Tomb Raider universe, the surprising waistline restrictions that mean the average American male is too large to go on Super Nintendo World's Mario Kart ride, and the claim that Sonic was "the lesser of two evils" according to Sega's former head of marketing.Finally, class is in session with Professor Ryebread in our Gaming History 101 segment. In this episode, we're testing ourselves with random retrogaming quick facts.We love our sponsors!
