The Rumble Pack, a group of obvious friends whose personalities work well together and frequently go on funny tangents.

Player One Podcast, ex-EGM, Nintendo Power, and other videogame vets

Watch Out For Fireballs, As someone who isn't going out any buying new releases that often, I echo ArtisanBreads' statement about liking in-depth talk about old games. This and Retronauts fill that role.

And No More Whoppers, Ray Barnholt's non-video game podcast where they talk about video games pretty often.

Both WWE '13 and 2K14 were pretty good. They're basically the same game with different window dressing. I played more of '13, but depending on your area of interest, 2K14 might appeal to you more.

WWE '13 was focused more on the Attitude Era of the WWE, and 2K14 was pretty much a bug fixed version of '13 that focused on Wrestlemania feuds. Other than that, they have the same basic gameplay and extra features.

For the forseeable future, it's all PC and Wii U for me. Even 3rd party exclusives will probably eventually have PC releases like Dead Rising 3. This, combined with all the bad news regarding internet issues, large installs, and broken games doesn't make me want to jump in on a PS4 or XBox One any time soon.

Plus I'm still batting cleanup on my 360 backlog.

Marvel Ultimate Alliance - Awesome Diablo style Marvel game. Probably the best Avengers game we'll ever get.

Earth Defense Force - Budget, but dumb fun.

Rock Band - Might not be cost or space effective, but was loads of fun and probably not a thing you could do on PC.

I'm from Maine and living in Queens, so I pretty much have the same attitude about any weather warning hyperbole. Nine times out of ten it's nothing, but I guess you can never be too careful. Personally, I love this weather.

The Savage Dragon has constantly been one of my favorite comics since I was in Junior High.

Like others said, Invincible and Walking Dead are high on the reading list as well. Invincible especially because the art is so good! It constantly takes all classic superhero tropes and spins them on their ear!

Fables is great. The concept and characters are fantastic, and the build to the whole first big story arc was great storytelling.

The first volume of Wolverine & The X-Men by Jason Aaron and (mostly) Nick Bradshaw was a lot of fun, and I've been digging the new Posehn/Duggan Deadpool.

Classic favorites include the original Mirage run of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (although the new IDW book is pretty good as well), Dragonball/Dragonball Z, Preacher, Paul Grist's Kane, Hellboy/B.P.R.D., Bone...Man, I could go on and on.

It all depends on the kind of stuff you're into!

WWE '13?? What year is it? Who's the president? Do I have a great bushy beard??

Inspired by the PAX Royal Rumble, I dusted off my copy of WWE '13 and updated the Giant Bomb roster! (I never got into '14 enough to recreate everybody). If you're still playing this relic, you can now download:

Alex, with updated "Great Sasuke" Rumble costume!

New Challenger, Dan Ryckert, with an approximation of his Rumble gear...

Dr. Tracksuit, in both Normal and RUN GFB tracksuits!

And the rest of the RUN GFB crew, Dave Lang and John Drake!

@jrock3x8: Sweet! The game you already have is the cheapest game of all!

I hope it works out for you. If you have a headset, you can actually say things to the characters, like compliment them or give them commands and stuff, so maybe that's something your wife can do while you handle all the shooting.

How about Binary Domain? It fits almost all of your requirements. The story is VERY linear, but there are some different ways it can end up depending on how you talk to your partners. It's a third person shooter, so the gameplay is relatively simple. However, all you fight are robots, so not much blood. It's a bit campy. Most of it is a pretty straight sci-fi story, but then you have a robot with a French accent. All that and it looks like it runs for $14 on amazon right now, and I'm sure that's not the cheapest place to get it.
