The guys are running a three man show this week with Jeff out of the office on a super-secret project. Aside from some cooking stories, Vinny hasn’t been playing a whole lot outside of a small bit of Damnation of all things, which he says is easily in the running for the worst game he’s ever played. Brad has also been focusing his time and mostly only playing Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands which he thinks does a lot to bring the series back to what people expect, but could have been much better. Ryan though has been playing a lot of games. Aside from seeing the new Medal of Honor, he talks at length about Split/Second and as good a game as it is, it sounds like he believes it to be a bit of a one trick pony.
After a short plug for Screened.com, news kicks off with even more surprising news about the shady dealings of Korean professional Starcraft players. Activision and EA have also gone nuts with registering domain names for possible future Call of Duty and Need for Speed games respectively, and some of them are very bad. Strong rumers also point to musicians not being playable characters in Guitar Hero 6. New releases and emails close the show.
Covered games and topics: Secret Jeff project, Damnation, bad hair, bad facial hair, Split/Second, Starcraft, Call of Duty, Need for Speed, Guitar Hero
Get ready for a little three-man dance as Ryan, Vinny, and Brad shed light on what makes Damnation so awful, the dry heat of Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, the Bruckheimerian appeal of Split/Second, the ongoing Korean Starcraft scandal, and more!
