Descend into adventure puzzling shenanigans in SEGA & Double Fine’s upcoming game, The Cave.
Consequently, “strategery” would also be a 14 point word… shazam!
The gang recaps the VGAs, Humble Bundle is awesome-er, Spellwood is a mobile gem, and we get our hands dirty with AC3 multiplayer. Finally, your thoughts and impressions about the award show’s winners and losers. Its more fun than finding magical games to put into the eye sockets of statues.
The Cave is an upcoming Double Fine, 2D adventure game from Maniac Mansion mastermind Ron Gilbert. We get our hands dirty as we explore the first 20 minutes of the Cave at PAX Prime 2012. Total awesome-sauce.
Since none of us won the mega lottery, we’re back! We talk about fan-made Wing Commander, KickStarter, Harry Potter, New comic-based TV cartoons, SEGA’s woes, and the new Superman. We take a look at Angry Birds in Space, (now with gravitational pull), and give early impressions of Kid Icarus uprising for the 3DS. Finally, we look ahead to convention season and talk about your most anticipated releases this year. Special thanks to Jimmy Hinson (aka Big Giant Circles) for rejoin music from the album Legacy, featuring unused material originally intended for Mass Effect 2. Awesome!
Everyone’s favorite witch will appear along side a massive collection of brawlers in a battle to the death. Let’s hope the wizards at Platinum can redefine arena combat the same way that they redefined the action brawler with Bayonetta.
