It’s a new year, and that means a new slate of games! This week we go over our potential new favorites of 2013, including adventure games, MMOs, and console titles. Speaking of consoles, Valve’s new Steam Box was announced in more detail a few days ago so we talk about what’s great about Big Picture and whether this will mean the end of the PS and XboX. (Answer: Probably not.)
We played a lot of games over the holidays! Highlights include waving sparkly pink dildoes in Saint’s Row 3 co-op, shamefully beating in heads in Hotline Miami, and taking on goblins in Lord of the Rings: War in the North. Did we mention Saint’s Row 3 co-op yet? Because we really, really played that a lot. Also, we talk about the tragedy that is the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and come to the sad conclusion that we are universally terrible at the old Nintendo game now.
As always Liore is joined by the most excellent Arolaide and Ellyndrial, along with a phone comment by Doone. What games are you looking forward to in 2013? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call our voice mail at (347) 565-4673.
