Episode 53 – The Arduous task of Picking Games of the Year 2012
We thought the selection process for 2009 was difficult, and then came the games of 2010 (including both Bayonetta and Red Dead Redemption). We thought 2011 was difficult, but now comes over 40 (!!!) new retail and DLC titles in just two months’ time, in 2012.
So much gaming to do in such little time: Dishonored, RE6, Code of Princess, Retro City Rampage, DoA5, Skylanders: Giants, Assassin’s Creed 3; not to mention earlier releases like Diablo III, Lollipop Chainsaw, Final Fantasy XIII-2, Soul Calibur V, Asura’s Wrath… there are myriad suitors for each category, and frankly, it’s driving us mad!
…which is exactly why we only touch on it in episode 53. Too much concentrated thought will hurt our brainparts. Instead, we discuss RE6, and the haters; the excitement of Skylanders: Giants, and the visual style of Arkane’s Dishonored; Neal’s children’s gaming preferences; Retro City Rampage; and a lot more. Stay a while, and listen!
