Hey. Follow us and stuff.

Look how social we are.

 

Game Exchange is all about the exchange of culture within video games.  At some point I do wish to branch out a bit, but for now, the focus of the show is three fold; To bring understanding about Japans gaming culture to the U.S., compare and constrast Japans gaming culture to our own, and understanding the cultural and linguistic inspiration that has helped shape so many of our favorite games.  Occasionally I may digress a little, but I hope to bring you all a brand new fun and interesting experience in my humble little webshow!

If you've ever been interested in the nation that birthed some of the greatest games of all time, and how it has effected our own gaming experience, this show is for you!
