We start off the new year with a guest! Brandon, one of Sam’s buddies from his hometown, joins us to discuss games, and share his Top Ten.
First off, though, Jonathan tries to justify his WoW addiction, shares his Christmas good fortune, and defends Donkey Kong Country Returns.
Alex talks about how bad he is at AssBro, and how bad Tron Evolution: The Video Game is.
Brandon’s been playing Super Meat Boy, Super Street Fighter 4, and The Void. He’s a man who enjoys self-inflicted pain.
Sam’s been plowing through Red Dead Redemption despite his complaints, ditto Nier, and he’s disappointed he didn’t try Dead Space sooner.
Brandon’s Top Ten continues his masochistic themes with some classics, and some classically hardcore games.
Finally, we announce the first Way of the Contest! Send us in your ideas for a game based on the events of 2010. The one we like best will receive a copy of Forbidden Island, a cooperative board game from Matt Leacock of Pandemic fame. There are more details on our forums.
