Mortal Kombat X moves forward with a snappier version of the previous game's fighting and some cool new characters, but the story and other features around the edges feel a bit rough in spots.
The ways that Axiom Verge resembles Metroid help set up and drive home the ways that Axiom Verge is most definitely not Metroid.
Hotline Miami's thrillingly brutal gameplay is stretched to the point of breaking in this aesthetically pleasing, but otherwise disappointing sequel.
@majortoms: No, I'm using an Xbox One controller.
@toysoldier83: The ad-free version of this podcast now has its own feed.
@decko5: Challenge towers and faction challenges are two different things.
@loktarogar: Yeah, since this is primarily meant for radio it has pretty different deadlines than the typical internet thang. Couldn't really be avoided.
Jeff's attitude about Bloodborne reminds me of him playing through Bioshock and only using the lightning and wrench. "It keeps working, why would I do anything else"; when the designers give you a ton of cool ways to play but you just are focused on 'winning'.
Every single person I've talked to about these games keeps talking about how important it is to take every advantage. Hit enemies through fences, knock guys off ledges, that sort of thing. Singling me out for doing exactly as everyone seems to be doing is a little weird, isn't it?
Also if the developers wanted you to use more than the lightning and wrench they should have made them less powerful or made the other options more appealing. I don't see how "attempting to stay alive and do well at a video game" is somehow my fault. I didn't design it that way!
Great that it's up now. It's so crazy that they only do these BEFORE the PPV and not after.
When there's a "big" wrestling show every single stinkin' month there's no such thing as "before the PPV and not after."

@cikame: Factions aren't platform-specific. They're bringing the entire player base together, at least as far as points and which faction is winning is concerned. You won't be able to do, like, cross-platform faction team battles or anything like that.
Wait, why wouldn't they put the first game in here? What the heck?
