Sam’s reign of terror as host continues for a second episode in a row. Fear the moose. FEAR HIM!
Before we get started on games, Alex talks about how The News and The Podcast intersected in his life.
Jonathan, meanwhile, announces the release of a new podcast, We Just Watched a Movie. Join us as we watch the movies on Time’s All-TIME 100 Movies list (plus a few more), and then rank them against one another. We’ve set up separate feeds for the two podcasts, which you can find in the links on the right, or you can stay subscribed to the main feed and continue to get everything we release. Either way, we hope you enjoy it.
In the meat of the episode this week, we finally talk about games we’ve been playing.
- Sam gives us a treatise on the Resistance series.
- Alex gets emotional about Journey.
- Jonathan dislikes weird inconsistencies in The Last Story.
- Alex hates on the update process of the PS3.
- Alex fails to understand what’s going on in White Knight Chronicles 2.
- Sam has also completed Crysis 3, and has good things to say about that.
- Alex talks about Banner Saga: Factions, a PC strategy game with clever mechanics.
- Jonathan wraps up with a quick plug for Pixel People,
- a quick warning about Early Bird,
- and a quick complaint about Spec Ops: The Line.
Finally, we introduce a new game! We’re still looking for a good name, but we’re placing wagers on the Metacritic score for upcoming new releases. We’re picking games a couple weeks out, and then we’ll follow up and see who got closest. Lowest score at the end of X number of weeks wins!
This week, we take a stab at God of War: Ascension. Be sure to give us your predictions in the comments below.
