The Sins are back! This week, it’s Sloth.
First, though, all three hosts have gotten varying amounts of playtime in on Batman: Arkham City. They all agree the world is huge, the fighting is solid, and the story is compelling (if a little confusing). There is some disagreement about Batman’s new methods of transportation, though.
In non-Batman news, Jonathan’s played some Dark Souls, but thinks it’s a bit too capricious and difficult to earn his $60. He’s also finished Bastion, a game that, for the first time ever, made him really stop and think about the moral choices he had to make.
Alex has put some time in on the new Ace Combat, and he’s confused about the choices they’ve made.
Sam, meanwhile, has continued to feed his Dead Island addiction and has been expanding his phone-based, block-removal prowess with Unblock Me.
In the topic for the show, we discuss Slothful aspects of the industry. 3DRealms, Brink, Shadowrun, and World of Warcraft all get targeted.
We wrap up the show with a game of Casting Call. Sam and Jonathan present their picks for the roles of Tifa, Cloud, and Sephiroth in the silver screen adaptation of Final Fantasy 7.
