Ash plays Dragon Age Inquisition and gives early impressions. Scott looks at the good and bad in Telltale’s The Walking Dead: Season 2 (spoilers 19:26 – 30:51) . Matt relives the glory of Halo in the Master Chief Collection.
While not nearly as massive as PAX in terms of its video game related programming, Comic-Con has been steadily adding more video game related content year after year. This year Comic-Con has dozens of panels to satisfy your video game hunger. Sadly, indie games haven’t really made their way to Comic-Con as of yet, but it’s only a matter of time before indie games crash the party.
Having played all of Bungie's past titles (Editor's note: Myth, anyone?!) as well as my fair share of Massively Multiplayer (MMO) time vortexes over the years I was more than curious to check out a portion the 500 million dollar…
[HOSTS: Ash, Scott, and guest Nate Hales] Fresh off of the E3 2014 media briefings from Microsoft, Sony, Nintendo, EA, and Ubisoft — Ash and Scott are joined by Nate from Reset Transmission to talk games, feels, technology, and strategy in our latest bonus episode!
While not quite as massive as E3 or PAX, Comic-Con 2013 has an impressive roster of studios showing off their upcoming games and swag. The following is a list of studios, publishers, and/or game related businesses which will be on the Comic-Con floor doing their thing.

This deserved some inspection into story and polish. 343 did not have it easy here, they were following in the footsteps of a highly vaunted developer in Bungie. This is the company that along with Epic lifted the XBox up into new heights. 343 had to come in and not just keep a series fresh, but make make it their own without pissing off legions of fans. Did they accomplish this task? You’ll have to read on.
When 343 took over for Bungie on Halo 4, the skeptic in me instantly thought the franchise was doomed to fail. Halo fans are rabid and devoted, would they even accept a new studio at the helm of their beloved Halo? Well they should.
Actress Amy Acker joins us on the podcast to talk about TV, films, and… pickling? Is there anything she can’t do?! Enjoy!
