I had been limping through the darkness for what seemed like forever. My allies had all fallen to an ogre deep within an abandoned mine, and town was nowhere in sight. Out of potions, lamp light, and food I crept through the darkness toward a curious torch in the distance. Salvation? As I approached, squinting to see what was ahead, the blast of an unfamiliar horn made me realize that I had made a fatal mistake. Within seconds a dozen snarling goblins surrounded my wounded avatar with swords raised. Soon after that, I was dead. This is the brutal world of Capcom’s Dragon’s Dogma.
It’s high time for Mass Effect 3 spoiler talk, with your feedback on the community response. We also highlight Brea Grant’s new film: Best Friends Forever, and review Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, The Hunger Games (film), and the very addictive rComplex for iOS. Let’s get into it.
I had the opportunity to play Capcom’s Dragon’s Dogma last year at Nerd HQ really enjoyed myself. I think the problem with modern RPGs is that many new IPs are terrified to really innovate and often borrow systems and themes from other games of a similar ilk. It’s no coincidence that I felt like I was playing Fable mixed with WOW while hacking my way through the beginning of KOA: Reckoning.
Even after watching Project S.E.R.A., I still have so many questions! The ten minute short film directed by Resident Evil editor Ben Howdeshell sprung to life this morning on YouTube, and damn is it good! Julia Voth (Lilith, Resident Evil, Bitch Slap) stars as Jill, in what could easily be described as a Reservoir Dogs-esque hostage drama with a zombie twist.
Excited for ME3? So are we! We take your tweets about which multiplayer race / class you’re most excited to play. We also talk Resident Evil, Nick McCarthy’s “The Pact”, Alcatraz, Asura’s Wrath, and Kingdoms of Amalur.

Today was a huge day for all things Resident Evil! The demo for Resident Evil: Revelations hit the 3DS (to very some very positive buzz), the teaser for Resident Evil: Retribution dropped from Sony, and less than an hour ago…
The Demo for Asura’s Wrath is unlike any game I’ve ever played before, as the game isn’t really a game at all. That’s right, much to my surprise Asura’s Wrath was actually nothing more than a collection of mini games and Quicktime evens smashed together into one god punching… rhythm game. Wait, rhythm game?
One quick blurb before I pass out for the evening. Capcom dropped this absolutely insane cinematic for RE:ORC this week that manages to highlight a wide variety of the game’s mechanics in the form of a pre-rendered cinematic.
I’ve always been a collector. For over a decade it was comics and toys, followed by DVDs and other nonsense. While I’ve cut down on the number of items I currently collect (sorry comics and toys), I do on occasion fork up good money for something truly special.
In this episode we sing songs, and talk about food. Also, we talk Batman Arkham City, Squids for iOS, In Living Color, SWTOR, Resident Evil, Dance Central 2, Battlefield 3, and the Ico HD remake. Treat yo’ self.
