Chris and Kelly Brown from The Married Gamers join us this week for an impromptu podcast. With Microsoft making some huge changes to their console we all weigh in... some of us feel relieved and others liked the past rules better. We also discuss if the Kinect is a privacy problem or not.
Everyone on the show agrees that Microsoft is their own worst enemy, so we examine their utter failures, their few successes, and is Sony getting away with some negative policies themselves. We also talk about the games that most excited us and the few duds.
This episode we take a look back at the good, bad, and Dany of season 3. How does this season compare with the prior seasons and the books, which we vaguely talk about with no book spoilers, but of course, there are spoilers for the TV show ahead.
We talk about the many annoyances and disappointments from Microsoft's big reveal this week... and the few things they did right. What will it take for them to win back hardcore gamers and how damaging is this to them overall? Listen to find out.
This week we discuss interesting iOS games to play, particularly Year Walk. The strengths and weaknesses of Defiance, what the hell is Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, and according to Crytek "graphics are 60% of a game", which we all have a strong (negative) reaction to.
This week we fully jump into Bioshock Infinite, discussing its narrative themes (race, religion, patriotism) as well as the good, bad, and annoying about its gameplay, and our interpretations on its very weird ending. We also speculate on where the franchise can go from here when it comes to DLC and sequels. Obviously, full spoilers ahead.
We cover quite a bit this week. We're joined by Marquice who's at GDC and Donna just got back from PAX East somewhat disappointed. We also discuss Gears of War: Judgement, the early parts of Bioshock Infinite (no spoilers are given), and a few big trailers from last week (Battlefield 4 and MGS5).

This week we're joined by special guest Zach Cooper, who's the Community Developer for Splinter Cell Blacklist. We discuss the new features of the game, changes in the voice actor for Sam Fisher, and other new additions to the campaign as well as a little on co-op and spies vs. mercs.
This week we discuss the good, the bad, and the creepy (thanks a lot Sucker Punch developer) of Sony's big press conference. All the games shown are talked about here, as well as our hopes about the price, controller, launch title games, and how Microsoft might counter them.
Shocker, JJ. Abrams is picking up more projects. Probably because his schedule is so empty right now, but this time it's gaming related. For some reason Hitman is being made into a movie again and Vincent has a surprisingly good take on DmC.
