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!!
Games rarely surprise me these days. It’s not that I’ve become bitter and jaded, quite the opposite really, I still love games, but I’ve been playing a lot of the SAME games of late. Telltale’s The Walking Dead did what no other title could accomplish this year , it genuienly surprised me in the best way possible.
Tomorrow, Telltale unleashes the season finale of The Walking Dead, and things are looking grim. If you haven’t had the opportunity to check out The Walking Dead, you’re missing one of the most innovative and terrifying games in recent years. On more than one occasion I found myself shouting at the screen while I struggled to hang onto my damp controller. The tension is palpable and constant, and like the comic book and television series, no one is safe. No one.
The gang gets into some spirited discussion about the Wii U talking prices, hardware, games, and your feels. There’s a new iPhone and a new jam from CossbySweater. We review Transformers: FoC, the new Resident Evil movie, JJ Abrams’ Revolution, and the Walking Dead Episode 3. Nah-Quatto!
Every once in a while a title comes along that changes the way games are made, played, and regarded. Telltale’s Walking Dead takes the adventure game genre and smashes it into a billion messy gore-drenched pieces. By the time you walk away from Episode 3, you’ll never look at adventure games the same again.
The Walking Dead is on Xbox / PC / PS3. Episode 2 is available now on Xbox, with PC and PS3 availability Friday, June 29th.
One of my favorite trilogies of all time is currently for sale for $24.99 on Amazon.com today (that’s 69% off…dudes). If you haven’t seen the blu-ray transfer on this, you’re really missing out. Here is the ample list of special features!
