Continuing the trend from last week, Brad is still out of the office which allows Drew Scanlon the rare chance to sit in on the podcast. Vinny starts off the first segment by discussing how he spent most of the weekend collecting the last of the feathers in Assassin’s Creed II, although admits that it very well may not have been worth it. Somehow this leads into a discussion on Christmas trees and tree farms. Jeff then discusses his weekend of playing through Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks in order to get the review done for Monday.
Drew speaks up for it seems like the first time to talk about his experience with Shadow Complex, which he says lives up to all of the hype he has heard around the office for the past few months. Ryan has spent most of his time playing The Saboteur, and describes it as “distinctly Pandemic”, meaning that the game is a bit of a jack of all trades, master of none experience. He also mentions Star Wars: The Old Republic preview, but thinks it is too early to really tell.
News this week is highlighted by the announcement of Medal of Honor and Dead Space 2, along with the rumored development of Mirror’s Edge 2. They also quickly discuss Kim Swift moving from Valve to Airtight games, leading to myriad of Portal jokes. New releases and emails end the show as usual.
