PODCAST: Game Time S01.Ep03 w/ Guest @PK_BWC

Brian has Jury Duty this week, so he brought Game Time a little early. But that's okay. You'll forgive him after he reveals his guest, Paul "PK" Kissock.

That name sounds familiar, right? Of course it does. PK returns to The Trending Topics Network as a guest on Game Time having been a former staple on the Network. This time, PK's not covering the independent or British wrestling scene, though. He's talking games and the latest in gaming news.

On the show, Brian and PK discuss developers' tracking of game stats and what that means for games, the never-ending saga surrounding the rebirth of Mutant League Football and a study that says playing Rock Band, of all things, can help reduce stress and generate empathy towards strangers.

Plus, the two attempt to tackle the debate that is raging over whether or not "gaming" is a sport.

For more on the Video Gaming/Sports debate check out these two invaluable resources:
  • The BBC's report on the subject, available until around February 6th HERE
