The lights are on
This week's podcast features the latest Skryim DLC, Lego Lord of the Rings, and our reaction to the Spike Video Game Awards.
We kick things off with by catching up with Lego Lord of the Rings, which has been out for a few weeks. However, the game's clever slant on Tolkien mythology is still well worth discussing. Joe Juba and Jeff Cork join host Matt Helgeson to talk about the game's considerable strengths. Next up, Andy Reiner stops by to talk about his review for Dragonborn, the third DLC pack released for Bethesda's epic Skyrim. This is the meatiest DLC for the game to date, but Reiner does have some problem's with the game's most notable functionality. Finally, a returning Reiner, Dan Ryckert, and Ben Hanson debate the 10th annual Spike TV Video Game Awards. Overall, the show was much better than in years past, and also featured an odd bit of gamesmanship from Konami and "Moby Dick Studio" about a possibly fake game called Phantom Pain. Also, Dan and Ben seriously argue about EVERYTHING in this episode, even if it had nothing to do with the VGAs. So enjoy that.

What I've listened to sounds excellent.
I've been waiting for this
I love arguing.
This sounds dumb, but I'm much more inclined to get Sonic Adventure 2 rather than any kind of Skyrim DLC. I've played something like 75+ hours of Skyrim since it released and about 1000+ hours of Sonic Adventure 2 Battle since I got my GameCube way back in 2002. ALso, chaos.
Maybe in the next you guys can create one exclusively for Dan and Ben to go at it. ;-)
the only thing wrong with the VGA's was the fact they only had 7 awards in 2 hours
Great show guys. Oh, and I hate the VGA's. They just feel so cheesy.
Wow that was hilarious but jesus, you are stubborn Dan.
The BioShock Infinite footage didn't look rough at all. It was pretty meh though. I just don't know what to make of it. The whole "tears" mechanic, and the alternate universe thing with "Revenge of the Jedi". I'm just not sure how this all fits together. However, having said that, I have full faith in Ken and the whole team and I will be there for the midnight launch.
Awesome podcast. I really enjoyed it.
DRAKEN! Oh my god! I loved that game!
