If you were a gamer in the '90s, chances are you had a magazine subscription (or two, or three). Electronic Gaming Monthly was a heavy hitter back then. And working for the magazine was as wild as you might imagine. Join David with EGM alum Dan "Shoe" Hsu, Shawn "Shawnimal" Smith, and Crispin Boyer as they chat about the wild moments that only they could get away with while working their dream jobs.
In this very special episode of ARGcast, David steps down from the hosting chair to give black voices the floor. Join in this enlightening discussion with Tanya "Cypheroftyr" DePass of I Need Diverse Games, Twitch streamer PleasantlyTwstd, Andre "Otakuman5000" Tipton of Real Otaku Gamer, Video Games Professor and D&D DM Shareef Jackson, Taylor Lyles of The Verge, and Twitch streamer Zombaekillz talking about black representation in games and the gaming industry, their own stories facing racism, and more.
David is joined by narrative game designer Xalavier Nelson Jr. to chat about his avian take on the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater games SkateBIRD! They also get into indie culture and the struggle behind game legitimacy.
This episode is part of our effort to support more black creators within the gaming industry. Stay tuned next week for what will be our all black episode with prominent black content creators sharing their concerns and hopes within gaming.
