2013 is near its end so now is the time to reflect, take stock and memorize lottery numbers in case we’re ever suddenly sent back in time. Listen for 9 of the best awards of the year plus our industry, gaming and crowd funding highlights. Sorry about Paul and Ben arguing.
Super Mario 3D World makes quite the impression on Paul and James, Ben plays with his xbone, there’s WOW talk, the state of streaming on next gen and a bear that carries a god damn treasure chest! Also all the games are now Persona! I really should try a Persona game. I bet you’ve played the series haven’t you? Damn listeners always better than me.
Crowd Funding Picks
Ben: Starwhal: Just the Tip
Paul: Treasure Bear
We’ve got Pikmin 3! Shadowrun Returns! Rudd Vs Abbot! TWO NEW SIMS 3 EXPANSIONS!!! These topics are getting less interesting as I go along. The first two though? Worth all of your time! Also Downton Abbey, Firefly and how Nintendo hates Japan!
PS4! Wii-U! XBone! OUYA! Sifteo Cubes! All the big players were in attendance in what was perhaps the most controversial E3 of all time. Emotions are high and there’s a bit of bullshit to cut through but we try not to get too bogged down in that and instead focus on what really matters… the length of Bayonetta’s new hair. IT’S SO SPUNKY!
All the Call of Duty: Ghosts news you can handle! Yep that’s all we talk about. We don’t just briefly mention it and spend most of our time discussing weird Kickstarter projects, Rayman Legends, Starcraft 2 and hilariously ironic game piracy. We wouldn’t pull a classic switcheroo on our listeners like that.
So much to talk about! Every subject must be attacked with the ferocity of a starving wolf in a chicken hatchery! SimCity? ATTACKED! Sexism in videogames? ATTACKED! Heaps of new games? WE’RE ALL OVER IT! SimCity? ATTACKED A SECOND TIME! …AND PERHAPS A THIRD!
Can you handle all the aggression? Will Ben break into an torrent of rage fuelled foul language? You can’t be sure until you listen.
