108 - Second Chances

You tend to get a lot of second chances in life, but what about in game development? This week on the Rocket Punch Cast, the crew sit and talk about the upcoming release of No Man's Sky NEXT, and discuss why it feels so challenging for game creators to earn a second chance with their games when mistakes are made. Are gamers being too critical and unforgiving when these missteps are noticed from developers? Why are some developers given slack with bugs and glitches in the games? Can goodwill from a developer truly help with getting that second chance? Find out the crew's thoughts on this, plus discussions on recent announcements from San Diego Comic Con, Octopath Traveler, and more!
