First though, Jonathan picked up a PS2 based on Alex’s recommendation, as well as Dead Space and Resonance of Fate. He’s found Dead Space to be fairly ho-hum, one chapter in, and he hates a character who apparently has some sort of satisfying death. He also talks a bit about WoW’s late game content, with a note that he’ll be quitting soon. Really.
Sam rejoices over finishing Fable 3, and talks a bit about Dead Space 2. He’s also got hold of a new laptop, so perhaps PC games other than WoW will make appearances in the show again, and we get a brief explanation of the Burning Rome teaser, and a recommendation to watch Spartacus: Blood and Sand.
Alex puts off game talk in favor of revising his “Best Thing of 2010 That Wasn’t a Game” pick, and giving his take on what his contest entry would have looked like assuming he was allowed to enter.
Our headlines this week cover the gamut:
- Sony announces the “Next Generation Portable”
- Rumors say Sony might start using serial keys for PS3 games
- Hell moves ever closer to freezing over as Duke Nukem gets a release date
- The Russian media tries to blame Modern Warfare 2 for terrorism
- California tries to slap warning labels on video games
- OnLive announces their new unlimited gaming pack
Before Name That Game, Jonathan almost announces a new contest, but doesn’t quite, and then Sam unleashes game show hell on his cohorts. It gets ugly.
