This week sees the first outing for the new weekly video-game news show for families — and I’m producing it! The program, hosted by long-time contributor to the channel Jordan Erica Webber (video-game critic for The Observer amongst others), aims to pick out applicable gaming news for families while also taking a look at video-game sales chart broken down by age group.
While families will often dip in to more avid gaming sites to find out what’s happening with the likes of Skylanders, Minecraft, Disney Infinity and LEGO games there hasn’t been video that keeps them up to date with news on a weekly basis. Hopefully this will help fill that gap.
The show dips into the latest news, rumors and updates on the big family games, while also keeping an eye out for indie titles and lesser known experiences that might be a good fit for families.
Finally it rounds things off with a look at the upcoming releases, again grouped by age. This offers a chance for families to plan how they may spend their gaming allocated funds a little more wisely.
Webber commented on taking up the new project, “With so much gaming news out there, families can find it hard to know where to go and what to trust. I want to make it easy for them to keep up to date with the news that matters to them.”
