We start off the show with non-game stuff. Curiosity not only landed on Mars successfully, but was gently lowered to the ground, and Jonathan’s mind can’t entirely cope with that. Also, Sam got a new new toy, which has made his old toy jealous.
In games, Sam almost talks about the game that started this podcast, but he actually meant to talk about Arkham City. Alex, prior to the start of his gaming sabbatical, has finished a game of Warlock: Masters of the Arcane, and he also picked up Final Fantasy XIII-2 for a song. Jonathan found nothing interesting to say about Akai Katana, gives a brief preview of Splice, and then rips to shreds the ending of Outland.
In the topic, we discuss the proliferation of stat tracking options both in-game and out. How much is too much? Do you even care?
Then we bust out another game of Identity Thief, and it starts off strong, and finishes in shame.
Next week: gaming music!
