In part 2 of the accursed 13th episode we discuss some game industry shutdowns, the death of an Atari pioneer, upcoming LEGO games, the live-action Zelda series coming to Netflix, more Bravely Second details, Telltale Games’ partnership with Lionsgate, the Toejam & Earl Kickstarter, Google AI, Ubisoft’s 20-year plan, Valve’s VR, Unreal and Unity going free, Source 2, and XB1/Windows 10 cross-buy support (including Shovel Knight).
It’s a new year, and let us start off by pointing out that we were all very tired when we recorded this episode, so it may not all be coherent, logical, or accurate. We talk about Tales of Graces f, romance in Dragon Age Inquisition, Nintendo gaming on New Year’s Eve, and the overwhelming urge to weep when planning how to tackle your backlog. We also talk about the recently announced PS Now subscription pricing, IGN people quitting to do podcasts/videos full time, Monument Valley’s piracy rate, and a few key 2014 gaming stats.
