The news that Gran Turismo 5 has been delayed again opens up the show, much to everyone’s annoyed surprise. On the bright side, the latest Game Informer reveals “a myriad” of information about Resistance 3. It uncovers the fate of the human race and the Chimera, the main character, and where the new game fits into the timeline. The Roper Report wraps up with new Marvel vs Capcom characters and the announcement of a sequel to Castlevania: Lords of Shadow.
Greg pushes really hard for Sonic 4 as pick of the week and Colin presents a cogent argument against the game, with price being the main factor of dispute. The topic of the week is the Extra Life marathon taking place right now (at the time of this posting) and the guys discuss what they plan on playing during the somewhat ridiculous 24-hour length. Most of them plan to tackle some fairly ambitious goals, targeting a few Platinum trophies, while also intending on playing multiplayer in several games with listeners.
The show closes out with some listener mail.

Talk about a bittersweet show. Just weeks after the delay of LittleBigPlanet 2 and DC Universe Online, the PlayStation Nation was dealt another blow when Sony announced Gran Turismo 5 wouldn’t make its November release date. When’s it coming? How are Greg, Clements, Colin and special guest Ryan Geddes taking the news? How are the kids holding up heading into Saturday’s 24-hour gaming event known as Extra Life?
