PODCAST | Our team talks Uncharted, SNES Classic, Assassin's Creed, and much more!

The USgamer Podcast is our weekly flagship podcast that is updated every Wednesday. You can find the previous episodes here.

The USgamer Podcast is back again, and we have a lot to cover as talk SNES Classic pre-orders, Uncharted, Assassin's Creed, and much more (download link here).

We're just starting to get into the teeth of the review season around here, and there's lots to talk about as we dive into yet another loaded podcast.

This week we address all the craziness around the SNES Classic pre-orders, as well as the general frustration abounds around it. But is it a given that the SNES Classic will be impossible to find at launch? I'm not so sure.

As for our major topic, we discuss an ongoing problem in the industry: crunch. We talk about whether or not things have improved since the EA Spouse days; the destructive impact it has on the industry's talent base, and whether game developers can actually unionize. All that and more as we tackle all of this week's events on the flagship podcast!
