Discussion

This week, Nemesis and Alca7raz have an unusual discussion. They decided to take a look at the relationship between creators and fans. This relationship has changed, particularly in the last few years. Creators can now get instant feedback, for better or worse. Some of the topics covered include misinterpretations, criticism, and even how much influence a fanbase should have on a property.
