This week, Sam is off somewhere, and Jonathan’s brother-in-law, Michael, is in the house and on the mic.
In our short news segment, we discuss the an ever-growing list of delays: Bioshock Infinite, Tomb Raider, the South Park RPG, potentially more. Also, GameStop has entered the fake money exchange business as they’ve begun carrying Steam Wallet cards. Finally, we also chat about Diablo 3 and the trouble it’s having, despite none of us playing it.
Michael talks about playing classic NES games on a site called Nintendo8. I have no idea how long that site will last, but it’s interesting while it’s there. He’s also got some thoughts on Skyrim and the recently announced Elder Scrolls Online, as well.
Jonathan’s played Asura’s Wrath, and wishes it were anything other than a video game, claiming it out El Shaddai’s El Shaddai. He’s also got a couple hours into Xenoblades Chronicles. That’s not enough time to decide if it’s the JRPG that’ll save all JRPGs, but it’s definitely the most interesting JRPG he’s played in a while.
Alex, as we all know, was out of town last week, and in his journeys, he discovered that his inner child is nine years old. He’s also incredibly high on NBA 2K12, finding it to be significantly better than 2K11, and a compelling take on the basketball genre. He’s also playing Warlock: Master of the Arcane, a turn-based strategy game on Steam, which is great except it’s missing multiplayer.
That’s about it for this episode. Next week, Sam’s going to get a face full of shame! You won’t want to miss it.
