Couch Podtatoes Episode 79: Historical Accuracy


Doone’s back for another round of the Digital Frontier. This time around we’re diving into the topic of historical accuracy in games, and how this can be troublesome. In some cases it feels like we’re being lied to, and in some cases big portions of the truth are omitted to avoid offending people. It’s a touchy subject but we look at it from all angles. I also think I should make mention that I picked up a new headset recently, and this is the first time using it to record, so any feedback you have on my sound quality would be appreciated! That’s all for this week. Up next is another episode of Doone’s Digital Frontier as he has another topic he wants to share for the month of February. We’ll see you then!
