We had some audio issues this week, delaying the show, but they’ve been worked out because we’re here for you, dear listener. Enjoy.
- Further proof that nothing interesting is announced at E3: Sony has entered into an agreement to acquire Gaikai.
- The Quantum Conundrum “game show” is terrible and should be avoided at all costs. Since Alex W’s take on the game was lost, it’s worth noting that this abomination should not reflect poorly on the game itself.
- The wonders of emergent gameplay: Dude Gets Kidnapped in DayZ, Tweets the Whole Thing
- Sam’s been playing more KoA and Skyrim. He’s got good things to say about Dawnguard.
- Alex thought he’d hate The Witcher 2, but actually didn’t.
- Jonathan’s played some demoes, and Outland earned his money while The Splatters didn’t.
What are the games that you must play in order to understand our hobby and the industry as a whole as it stands today? What are the games you must play in order to be able to claim the mantle of Gamer? When games become a part of the liberal arts curriculum, what games will constitute the classics that every school child will dread being forced to play through?
Alex puts forward Final Fantasy 7, Sam offers Portal, and Jonathan nominates Journey. Tweet, comment, post, or call in your nominations, and we’ll include them in future discussions of what constitutes gaming scripture.
