ARGcast: Accessibility in Gaming With AbleGamers’ Steven Spohn (PODCAST)
Steven Spohn of AbleGamers comes on the show to school us on game accessibility, what it actually means, and how it can be better.
You have the power, ARGonauts! AbleGamers COO Steven Spohn joins us this week to chat about accessibility in gaming. We discuss what it means for a game to be accessible, Microsoft’s Adaptive Controller, and how Nintendo used to be a leader in this back in the NES days.
This week’s news has us wonder if wrestler John Cena will be in Mortal Kombat 11. That’s followed by a Resident Evil 2 mod that would make DMX proud, and a stealth release of Commander Keen on Switch.
The Stage of History has us make a big leap in time from Video Olympics on Atari 2600 to the modern classic Flower. Robert then gets super nerdy in Obscura with Lester The Unlikely. Don’t forget to nab our game giveaways, then stick around for some Random Select! Who could Robert be this time?
