And we’re back! We had a plan, and then chucked it in favor of talking about a bunch of games. We also introduce a new game this week, though it has no name as of yet.
Sam talks about how L.A. Noire has grown on him, once he realized it’s a puzzle game, not an action game. He wants to get the crap scared out of him, but unfortunately F.E.A.R. 3 hasn’t released yet. He also wishes he’s just looking over the “Motorcycle” menu in Forza 3, but we’re pretty sure he’s not.
Alex talks up Frozen Synapse, a game that takes the planning stages from the early Rainbow Sixes and turns it into a simultaneous turn-based tactical action game. Alex also talks about L.A. Noire, and the World of the Living Dead beta.
Jonathan’s not had much opportunity to play more L.A. Noire, though he’s still very pleased with it. In addition, he’s been playing the toddler-soothing music game, Chime, and enjoying it quite a bit. Less enjoyable was Mindjack, a game with an awesome concept that falls flatter than a planker.
Other games that get mentioned include F.E.A.R. 1&2, Amnesia: The Dark Descent, FortressCraft, and Terraria.
We wrap up the show with a new game, one involving terrible translations and full coffee. If you’ve got an idea for a name for it, let us know!
Next week, an eye doctor and E3 predictions!
