Digital Fiasco – Episode 18: It’s the Circle of Life (And it Screws Us All)

Greetings, AYB! Jack McBastard here again with another episode of Digital Fiasco. This week we discuss the Gamestop “Circle of Life” controversy, and how the used game market screws developers (and the customer).


Digital Fiasco is a weekly video game podcast covering PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo, and PC, with a little nerd culture thrown in. Every Monday, hosts Dandr0id and Jack McBastard discuss all the hot topics in gaming, always striving to prove why you should give a damn. Whether you prefer Sony, or Microsoft (or Nintendo), or perhaps you’re a member of the PC master race, we have gaming topics to cover it.

WARNING: May contain profanity, mature content, and talk of that terrible Codemasters game, Damnation

Jack McBastard and Dandr0id are contributors for AYBOnline. Their opinions are their own. For example, I keep thinking that things can’t get worse for the Nintendo Switch, but every week I’m proven wrong. Get it together Nintendo, I’m not re-buying the virtual console Metroid a third time.
