I love this Austin project. It's a great way to hear from writers I wouldn't otherwise discover. Welcome to Bruno!

With how advanced the web is now and as its progressing, hopefully the organic sharing of game development ideas will get better and better.

FUN FACT: In Latin America and other Spanish-speaking regions, Bruce Wayne's name is translated to "Bruno Diaz."

AUSTIN, DID YOU JUST HIRE BATMAN TO WRITE FOR THE SITE?!

It's nice to hear a non-native english speaker! It's great to hear view points from non-english spaces.

Also to quote Team GFB radio... WORLD WIDE.

EDIT: This was a really good podcast. I'm excited to hear more about what the IF scene is like since I know so little about it. The one thing I did notice is, Austin, you were talking over Bruno a lot. May want to just be aware of that.

The "if a AAA publisher gets ahold of it and it fails it's toast" is an interesting take, especially with the circumstantial evidence of trends.

If the motion control fad of last gen taught me anything, it was to not get overly hyped for the VR fad of this gen. So, thank you motion controls.
