Alex misses this episode due to a funeral in Florida. Dr. Luke steps up to take his place.
After some reminiscing, we jump into game talk.
We start with a first-hand account of the SimCity debacle. Luke tolerated a lot of the server issues, right until they rolled back his city. Luke will be voting with his dollars in the future.
Luke also shares his experience with the culture shock that occurs when you jump into ranked matches in League of Legends, which killed his enthusiasm for that game, too.
It’s okay, though, because Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm is successfully scratching his online strategy itch.
Sam finally broke out some WolfPack in Assassin’s Creed 3, and things get crazy. Just as Alex says, the single-player may be lousy, but the multiplayer still sells the game.
Sam has also picked up Forza: Horizon, which features a version of Colorado that Jonathan can’t (or won’t) corroborate.
Jonathan’s been playing Faster Than Light, and the final boss is a bit of a shock. That said, he’s still ridiculously addicted to it.
In the MetaGame, Gears of War: Judgement helped to bring the scores closer together. The game scored a 70 on release day, five, seven, and nine points lower than Alex, Jonathan, and Sam’s guesses, respectively.
Luke joins the game this week, as we anticipate the multimedia Syfy experience, Defiance. He guesses 57, Jonathan goes for 60, Sam takes 65, and Alex goes big with 75.
Next week we’ll find out how Army of Two: Devil’s Cartel plays out. Feel free to join in in the comments below.
