As is our custom this time of year, we bring you tales of Gen Con, this time hosted by The Moose. First, though, games!
Jonathan finished two games this week! Stacking and N+ make it into the All Done pile. Dust: An Elysian Tail gets nixed, though, based on a disappointing demo.
Alex busts out some Sleeping Dogs, and tells us about Papo & Yo, a game he won’t be able to actually play.
Sam’s plans to play Metal Gear Solid 3 collapse under the need to record this episode, but he’s got lots of Gen Con Virgin stories to share. He’s returned, but he’s not the same.
In a brief news/topic hybrid, we rip on Christoph Hartmann for claiming that the only way games can produce unique genres and emotional games is if we have photorealistic graphics. Journey, Shadow of the Colossus, Silent Hill 2, Bastion, Portal, and dozens of others would like to have a word with you, Christoph.
Finally, we wrap up with another installment of Identity Thief. It turns out we are truly terrible at this game.
