Here is a fun game to play. During this episode, one of the hosts says something incorrect about a videogame. Did you catch it?
The first four minutes of the episode were some of the most fun I’ve had in ages. I’m just picturing a newcomer to the series hearing our review of Halo, the Wiimote-based PS3 exclusive. Yes, 99% of the people out there will dismiss the discussion as the ravings of silly people. But you know, somewhere on the internet, lurks that last 1%. The people who will hear this, and the red curtain of rage will descend, and they will experience an epic level of indignation that “this review is so bias and inacurate”. I realize this is a really childish thing to enjoy. Sorry.
We did manage to sneak in a few words about Mass Effect 2. So there’s that. Anyway. Come back tomorrow and see if the show improves! The suspense must be killing you!
The Best of 2016
My picks for what was important, awesome, or worth talking about in 2016.
Batman: Arkham City
A look back at one of my favorite games. The gameplay was stellar, but the underlying story was clumsy and oddly constructed.
Batman: Arkham Origins
A breakdown of how this game faltered when the franchise was given to a different studio.
If Star Wars Was Made in 2006?
Imagine if the original Star Wars hadn't appeared in the 1970's, but instead was pitched to studios in 2006. How would that turn out?
A video discussing Megatexture technology. Why we needed it, what it was supposed to do, and why it maybe didn't totally work.
