We’ve mentioned The Way of the Game’s official Twitter feed before, but where before it’s just been a conduit for announcing that a new episode has been posted, we’re going to be trying to post to it more often. Stuff that doesn’t fit in as discussion for the podcast will find a voice on the feed. Check it out.
Sam’s broken record continues. Moving and Skyrim. Moving and Skyrim. Moving and Skyrim. With any luck, the launch of Mass Effect 3 will break him out of his rut, but probably not until episode 110.
Alex has been playing Syndicate. In 4-player co-op, he’s continuing to enjoy himself, but console freezes and predictable enemy routines are a bit of a drag. He’s also taken a shot at the new SSX. As a huge fan of the earlier entries in the series, the new one leaves him entirely ambivalent. Alex has also picked up Quarrel for iOS and XBL, and enjoys everything except the part where it told him “GRAPES” isn’t a word.
Jonathan continues to get 2011 games from GameFly, though none have yet made him reconsider any of his picks from episode 104. Alice: Madness Returns proves to be fairly competent, if a bit overwrought. Two Worlds 2, meanwhile, starts off terribly, a fact everyone seems to agree on, and the the few people who claim it gets better only serve to show that Jonathan won’t have the patience to wait. Meanwhile, the dwarves have arrived at Hero Academy, and they’re play-style is entirely different from either the humans or dark elves, and that’s a good thing.
In our topic this week, the guys decide to go out on a limb and preemptively pick their 2012 Game of the Year. With nothing to go on but gut instinct and marketing hype, each host stakes a claim in a wildly different game. We can pretty much guarantee that there will be crow to be eaten in January.
Next week, Reverse Casting Call returns, and the guys talk about… something. See you then!
