Rebel FM Episode 33 – 09/25/09

Rebel FMHalo ODST continues to be the first game covered in this week’s Rebel FM. Arthur ends up defending the game as Anthony argues that it doesn’t feel different enough and doesn’t offer enough content to justify its $60 price tag. Dead Space Extraction gets a glowing response from the guys here with them saying that it almost elevates the whole on-rails shooter genre.

Tyler is talking about wanting to pick up Plants vs. Zombies, and the recent release of a stripped-down free flash version made it impossible for him to put it off any longer. Don’t let its “casual” appearance put you off, this is a highly addictive and entertaining game and now that there is a free sample to try there is no reason not to give it a chance.

The guys touch on a myriad of smaller topics in emails with Anthony passing on word that the recent, short PC delays have been publishers’ strategy to fight piracy by encouraging console sales. Also notable is that Tyler was unaware of Brutal Legend’s RTS elements which suggests that many may not know that it is not just a pure action game. There is no TGS talk here so move along if that what you are looking for this week.

Covered games and topics: Halo 3: ODST, Apollo Justice, Dead Space Extraction, Team Fortress 2, MMOs, Plants vs. Zombies flash, DJ Hero, PC delays, audio in games, Brutal Legend, PSP Go, dying genres, emails

Yes, we’re late, we know. This week we argue a bit about ODST, gush about Dead Space: Extraction and DJ Hero (I was surprised too), do a lightning round of twitter topics, and close out with letters.
