Hello and welcome to Episode 6!

The mice prance around after Poland usurps the podcast throne from the absent host. We discuss the beauty of Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon, reminisce about Kingdoms of Amalur, talk shit about Microsoft and their insane ideas for next gen, discuss Rockstar Games, conclude that Neverwinter sounds pretty rad and we throw all our candies on the floor. We thank you in advance for listening and we personally await the inevitable attempt at regaining power by Phatmac.

If you want to ask us a question or just vent, you can shoot us an e-mail at giantbombcommunitypodcast@gmail.com, spam the youtube comments or send us PMs.

Talking Points

  • GENOCIDE IS FUN
  • Atlas wants to hang himself
  • We intervene and all is well
  • All of us can do a convincing Michael Biehn impression
  • I HOPE I DON'T HAVE TO COLLECT ANY FUCKING FEATHERS
  • There are L.A. Noire apologists
  • Polish movie title translations can be really stupid
  • Neverwinter RP session
  • I CALL SHOTGUN
  • Injustice DLC
  • Some people don't like comic books
  • Soul Sacrifice
  • IT'S DR ELIZABETH DARLING TO YOU
  • Kavinsky
  • Atlas wants to go back to his roots
  • GTA V
  • I HOPE THE C400 IS JUST AS GOOD AS THE C40

@phatmac: So we can discuss Dota 2 at length while I throw in anime stuff every once in a while? That sounds like a good time to me.

@ghostiet: You know it all too well, Ghost.

I'm definitely on the side of L.A Noire being a bit.. well not bad, but at least middling. Impressive facial tech, homicide arc is cool, but the interrogation choices were so limited and arbitrary, and the majority of the gameplay was basically just a glorified pixel hunt. Plus it really does just fall apart nearing the end when it reverts into a mediocre shooter.

Also, I thought Amalur's combat was kinda meh. Which is weird because that's like the one shining aspect of that game that most people have praised, but I just found it to be so... flat, and really monotonous. That and I disliked how you couldn't have a weapon slot exclusively for a ranged weapon, so I wouldn't have to keep switching between my secondary melee weapon and my bow.

Also also, I Am Alive is great -- suck it! Story was really weak, though.

@yummylee: Wish I was on the podcast to defend that game! I'm a huge noir movie fan so I'm a bit biased.

I thought it was in general agreement that it was the homicide arc that dragged on about three cases too long?
