This week, we try to cover a topic, and fail. We have some good conversations about games, though.
First off, Alex and Jonathan talk about the wildly different whether in their wildly different states.
Alex discusses Shadows of the Damned, a grindhouse-type game with an angry Mexican and a lot of penis jokes. Despite Jonathan’s reservations, Alex also has nothing but good things to say about Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon. We’re also looking to start up a regular, monthly AssBrodeo. Check the forums for more info.
Jonathan pimps the Steam Summer Sale, which has ended already, and reminds everyone just how much fun Team Fortress 2 is. He also talks about HOARD, a game about dragons, and Terraria, a game with Minecraft‘s addictiveness AND a purpose. Bonus!
Sam wishes F.E.A.R. 3 was scarier, wishes Far Cry 2 was less realistic, and wishes Crysis 2 was eligible for marriage. Jonathan and Alex are suitably disturbed.
Alex brings a themed version of Name That Game! to bear this week: Lousy Games! He scraped the bottom of Metacritic’s barrel, and brought a number of truly terrible games to the table.
Next week, we really do get to our topic. See you then!
