Mark Ryan joins the regular podcast crew and Greg kicks things off with a classic rant about his vision (or his desire for a shared vision) for the podcast. Infamous 2 Comic-Con news heads up the Roper Report, with his proud pronouncement that Cole will be returned to an art style similar to his model in the first game.
David Jaffe and Scott Campbell phone into Beyond to talk a little bit about the single player of the new Twisted Metal game and defend themselves against some of the rigorous commentary on these features announced at Comic-Con. This time, they allow three different characters to drive sixteen different cars with separate gameplay paths featuring distinct bosses and pacing.
Topic of the week is centered around the delay of SOCOM and the PS3’s end-of-year fate. While Gran Turismo 5 and LittleBigPlanet 2 will gain a lot of attention this holiday season, Sony’s offerings pale in comparison to those early next year. The show closes out with reader mail, as always.
Covered games and topics: Infamous 2, Metalocalypse cancelled, SOCOM 4 delayed, Street Fighter III: Third Strike, MyIGN, LittleBigPlanet 2 release date, Twisted Metal, Official IGN List of Upcoming Software on All Three Platforms by the IGN Editors, Topic of the Week, Reader Mail
Greg, Ryan and Colin have a lot to say this week. With Guides Master Mark Ryan joining the ranks, the Beyond energies are at maximum capacity. The team touches on everything from LittleBigPlanet 2 to Gran Turismo 5. But what’s this? A strange phone call smashing the serenity of the sacred Beyond podcasting room?! Who could possibly have this much power? Tune in and listen to Twisted Metal Guru David Jaffe lay down the law and hear about Ryan’s moderately overpriced haircut.
