Greg Miller joins Podcast Beyond after a week away from the reins, bringing in Game Scoop! co-host Daemon Hatfield for much hilarity. The Playstation Move has shipped about 4 million units and Daemon goes a bit crazy over the fact that Sony has only released “shipped” numbers rather than the amount of product actually sold to consumers. Colin talks a little bit about the delay of Explodemon and how he finds it odd that people accuse it of being derivative of Explosion Man despite the fact that it entered development first.
In the Official List of Upcoming games, Greg answers a listener question about Dead Nation and how it compares to Super Stardust HD. Reader mail starts off with some thoughts on what franchises deserve to have sequels stopped for a little while. They also talk about Game of the Year considerations and answer a reader’s question about how genres aren’t considered in this year’s events. Much debate is had over the review of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, with Colin’s highly positive thoughts on the game and Daemon’s “middling” review.
