This week on the Crater Corner podcast, the boys talk about NFTs in video games after Square Enix has made the decision to sell part of their western division to invest in the blockchain. This, as Tom puts it, feels like when you mortgage all of your properties in monopoly so you can build hotels on the brown squares and then no one ever lands on them and you go bankrupt.
They discuss all the possibilities of what NFTs can do to video games and their future predictions. Do you think NFTs have a place in video games? Or do you think they will crash and burn?
The Crater Corner is a podcast all about celebrating everything video games. Its hosts, Jayden Hellyar and Tom Wilson, cover a wide range of topics from indie gaming to Ariana Grande concerts in Fortnite. They also frequently interview game developers such as Square Enix Development Director, Alexandre Richer, and Far Cry turned indie developer, Nathan “Jitspoe” Wulf.
