Reading: Gaming Voice Actors Reach Tentative Agreement to End Strike” by Patrick Klepek (@patrickklepek)

Excerpt: “TThere might be an end in sight for the voice actors’ strike that’s troubled game productions for the last year or so, based on a press release issued this afternoon by SAG-AFTRA, the union representing the voice actors. A tentative agreement has been reached with the 11 game companies they were striking against.”

Reddit thread of the week: How does the lack of owning games affect us, or will affect us?” by /u/lloyd094


“We live in the digital era, and the usage of media has shifted grossly from owning to licensing. The majority of the time now, you no longer own a game – “own” it on Steam? It’s simply a license. Xbox? License. Physical disk for something like Xbox or PS4? Still a license, just a physical license. The only media right now (in current era gaming at least) that I would argue isn’t truly license based is Nintendo distribution through cartridges.”
