It’s the final episode of Counterweight which also means it’s goodbye to Eric Brasure, co-host of Trekabout and the award-nominated (and defunct) The Next Stop Is… podcast.
As Eric hangs up his videogame cape for good, we take this moment to reflect on why anyone should bother in the videogame space. You won’t make money and everyone will hate you. Our last conversation lurches from topic to topic but the common theme is a lingering, sad sigh over everything videogames.
It’s been two and half years since Eric joined the site and I’m sad to see him go, but it was my decision to end the podcast. I like the way Counterweight turned out and I think our best podcasts were the ones on Bioshock Infinite (oh the anger) and Banished (how technical can you get), but Counterweight was one of the few dissenting voices on Papers, Please (we felt it had problems).
Thank you to the devoted few who enjoyed listening to Eric and myself talk into the mic.
