Updated Editor’s Note 11/7/2017 – In an effort to further commit to our editorial vision of quality content about nothing but games or the industry, we are leaving this note here to let you know that this article does not meet the standards of that vision as it exists today. This article may be poorly written, or it may be well-written but with charged political content, which we have stepped away from. It’s not the ideas we have a problem with, as we do not discourage any viewpoint, we are just moving away from this sort of content. This article no longer represents TechRaptor’s editorial vision today and into the future. You can read more about why we are doing this here.


Don’t you love it when the press has an agenda? Yeah, me neither. I do apologize for the delay in getting this episode out, but I’m excited for this episode of the Mind of Micah C. This time around, we’re going to be talking about pre-orders just a smidge, but mostly discussing an article that Ben Kuchera put forth over at Polygon, and the problems I have both with his agenda and his arguments. I also give a bit of backround on Ben, and sources for that background can be found cited below. I hope you enjoy this episode, and keep an eye out for tomorrow’s follow up article!
