Special guest and winner of the Game Scoop! IGN for Haiti auction, Ryan de La Rosa is on this week, and that results in a rather erratic show. It takes over 20 minutes for the guys to get into the real game talk and they start with the recent issues between Infinity Ward and Activision. The Game Developers Conference is next week and it sounds likes IGN will have some serious coverage of the show. They discuss what they expect to see there and Valve announcements cause the most anticipation.
After touching on the launch of Rock Band Network, it’s time for Knockin’ Boots. Greg again promotes a breakup, but the second entry for the segment may have been a proposal– it’s hard top tell. Emails finisht show.
Covered topics and games: Industry event, Pokemon, Lost, IW+Activision, GDC, Portal 2, Steam on Mac, Rock Band Network, Knockin’ Boots, emails, PSN activation issues
Welcome back to Game Scoop!, your weekly dose of gaming news and massive LOLZ. Your shepherds this week will be Daemon Hatfield, Charles Onyett, Craig Harris, and Greg Miller. We are joined by one Ryan de la Rosa, winner of the Game Scoop! IGN for Haiti auction. Part of the package was a seat on a future podcast, and he’s here to claim what is rightfully his.
Obviously, the biggest news of the week is the Activision/Infinity Ward debacle. It’s a giant mess and we’re struggling to make sense of it all.
The Rock Band Network Music Store is open for business, so you can expect to be playing “Made from Lava Ryan” very soon.
There is a little show called the Game Developers Conference happening next week. We’ve got predictions for what we expect to see.
Boots will be knocked: Former fattie is now a stud. Should he dump his girlfriend for someone hotter?
Plus we answer a bunch of reader mail about Final Fantasy XIII, spoilers, and the PlayStation Network. Don’t forget, we’re available on iTunes, along with episodes of Game Scoop! TV. Remember to rate the shows while you’re there.
