With Brad out of the office, site designer Dave Snider sits in on the podcast this week. A recap of the holiday break takes up the first part of the show with tales of food and holiday events. Assassin’s Creed 2 has been on the docket for many of the GB staff and Vinny took the time with family to throw in some old games like Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2.
Talk then turns to the month of December being slow on the new achievements and what everyone’s plans were on catching up on missed titles. Jeff mentions Ratchet & Clank: A Crack In Time is at the top of his list as well as possibly finding time to give Demon’s Souls another shot. Ryan hopes to get into Left 4 Dead 2, which the other guys recommend he does as soon as he can.
News of the World mentions the recent announcements of Mercs Inc. and Final Fight: Double Impact, the latter of which leads down a rabbit hole of discussions on Metro City mayor Mike Haggar. The guys then take a couple minutes to stop and laugh about the absurdity of the King of Fighters movie trailer and the upcoming Avatar movie New releases and emails close out the show as per usual.
Covered games and topics: Turkey, 2012, Assassin’s Creed 2, GRAW 2, Ratchet & Clank, Mike Haggar, Demon’s Souls, Maggie Q, blue people.
All the tryptophan and cheese-covered car keys in the world can’t stop us from going on about cursing at the end of the world, Assassin’s Creed II, underestimating kids, Dragon Age: Origins, and the bittersweet return of Metro City mayor Mike Haggar.
