From the icy wastes of Canada Rated NA 82 is joined by special guest Mike Gamble of Bioware to talk production, Mass Effect, and the brand spanking new Omega DLC. We also discuss our Thanksgiving holidays and this year’s door buster madness! Oh yeah, we do quick reviews of Halo 4, ACIII (ship combat), The Walking Dead: Episode Five, Borderlands 2 DLC, and our buddy Steve’s new film Lincoln! This episode is filled with more idiocy and explosions than ever before!! EXPLOSIONS!1!!
XCOM: Enemy Unknown is a bold take on a classic genre that hopefully brings new players into the fold. With a ton of depth and customization, players could easily find themselves spending hours upon hours tweaking their squads armor, colors, heads, and haircuts before sending their tiny soldiers out to face their inevitable brutal slaughter (unless you reload). But is it fun? (clicky)
The gang is finally back together again to talk X-Com, Dance Central 3, Borderlands 2 DLC, and Dishonored. We talk technology with the iPad Mini and Microsoft Surface. We also gush over Avengers news, and Hilary spoils a movie or two. On this pre-Halloween contest we reminisce about costumes with your responses in our NAQOTW! Spooky!
October 2012 will no doubt go down in video game history as one of the most release heavy months of all time. The funny thing is, it’s not just the quantity of October’s releases, it’s the diversity and quality

Ahhh 75 episodes of Rated NA! This week the gang welcomes Patrick Weekes, writer on the Mass Effect series, to talk about his craft and his new book, The Palace Job. We also briefly reflect on our wild work weeks and Hilary gushes about her love of Starbuck from Battlestar. Oh yeah, we also had Patrick answer a number of your listener questions as well.
Long ago, in an age lost to time, I was an avid MMO player, and even ran my own guild for longer than I care to admit. On top of giving me a very flat bottom from all the sitting that transpired, guild leadership taught me to be infinitely patient when dealing with folks in multiplayer games.
The gang returns from PAX Prime 2012 amidst an explosion of new device announcements. Tales of parties, hi-jinks, and games… along with our usual nonsense. Finally, your favorite convention memories.
We’re back from PAX and have thus far avoided “the pox”. In this special episode we have a slew of reviews, previews, and tales of wonder and adventure from Boston.
