This week Garry finished Halo: Reach and Alex finished Call of Duty: Black Ops along with the PC version of Gears of War. Huge release week with the Nintendo 3DS coming out worldwide! Nothing huge in the news but lots of little news stories to discuss. We venture back into the world of Dead Space in Spoiler Discussions. This week we discuss the events between Dead Space 1 & 2 and Dead Space 2 up to chapter 5.
This week Garry started Halo: Reach and finished Call of Duty: Black Ops. Alex played through Dead Space Ignition and Prey and started Earth Defense Force 2017. Huge release week covering every platform and lots of little news stories. The topic of the week returns this week where we talk about why video games are art.
Alex went to PAX East 2011 and saw a lot of stuff including the Nintendo 3DS for the first time. It was an incredible time on the show floor from meeting Tim Schafer to talking with Greg Kasavin of Super Giant Games and playing games like Bastion, Child of Eden and Gears of War 3. Then off the show floor was just as awesome meeting up with the guys from trigames.net and seeing the GiantBomb Cast Live. Oh yea we also talked about what we've be playing, the new releases and the news.
Its been a busy week so not many games were played but Alex and Tom did check out a bunch of PlayStation Move demos. We go over the new releases and the news. Alex and Garry also discuss the unfortunate closure of mygamercard.net, which was the best achievement tracking site on the internets. Finally tune into part 2 of our Dead Space spoiler discussions.
I'm getting one, not sure why though. I mean the 3D is awesome but the launch line up is a little weak in my opinion. I wasn't gaming much around the time of the DS's launch so I can't really compare them. While i barely play my Wii and DS I'm still holding on to my fanboyism for nintendo that I've had for the last +20 years. So yea I feel urged to pick it up and beside at least it's a "okay" launch line up and we will be getting good titles through the end of the year. Nothing is worst than having a good launch line up and no games for 6-9 months. I think I'm going to get Pilot Wings Resort because it loved the first two games and it's been nearly 15 years since the last game.
Besides Amazon has let me pre-order 2 units (a black one and a blue one) so my hope is the idiots on ebay that pay way over price when their are no units available after launch will be crazy like during the PS/Wii launches and be paying near or at least double the MSRP so it will pay for the unit I plan to keep. Although seeing it not November when the last consoles launch the ebay prices might be lower. Hey and if get more than i expect I'll get another game, although the 40 dollars a game isn't something I'm loving.
