August 26, 2014


mp3-iconDownload mp3

   Jordan, Spencer and Rob are back!  We of course start off with the games we have been playing.  Jordan feels drained by Castlevania Lord of Shadows,  gets abducted by Xcom Enemy Unknown and falls down a history hole with Total War Shogun 2. Also, he plays Paths of Exile.  Spencer dumps whale oil on himself in Dishonored: Knife of Dunwall and saves Konoha Village in Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 Full Burst.  Rob, of course, played the backer beta of Pillars of Eternity (the new Infinity Engine Game).
   We then get to our topic, Which Game Genres Are Making A Comeback?  With the rise of the Indie game,  the rising amount of new people playing games, and companies building older style games, old styles of games have been popping up everywhere.  Which styles have had a resurgence? Are there types you want to see come back? Listen in to find out if something you (listener) would enjoy playing some of these new games.
