In this episode we reflect on the death of the influential Satoru Iwata, have a brief chat about standout parts of E3, follow up on Rob’s progress with Lifeline and his Dragon Age: Inquisition romance, and talk about My Garbage Cat Wakes Me Up at 3 a.m. Every Day and Batman: Arkham Knight. We also discuss the BBC being sued over their unofficial GTA TV drama, Costume Quest getting a cartoon, Candy Crush Saga coming with all copies of Windows 10, Jade Raymond’s new studio, and who Minecraft: Single Player Mode might be aimed at. Also, someone mashed up Shia LaBeouf’s weird motivational video with the end of Sonic Generations, and it’s exactly what you’d think it is.
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.
