/ Checkpoint / Games & Hobbies / Video Games / Video Game PR Disasters


This week on the show, we look at some of the biggest marketing and PR disasters in video game history! We all know the video game industry is one of the largest industries in the world, so with that comes some elaborate and expensive ideas that sometimes don’t go as planned. From wasted resources to the police being called into action, big conference blunders and more, at least in retrospect these big marketing mistakes make for some funny stories today.

Join Luke, Elliot and Sav as they discuss the PR disasters that stand out the most, what they think about them and try to figure out WHO APPROVED THIS STUFF!?

Also on this episode, Luke plays a twisted killing game with Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony and Ed gets his sportsball on with his review of NBA 2K18! We also run through the big news of the week, with Red Dead Redemption 2 updates and some fantastic news for a Melbourne VR studio. Don’t miss any of the action!
