The lights are on
In this week's podcast we discuss the critically acclaimed
Tomb Raider reboot, and the controversy surrounding the launch of EA's SimCity.
We start things off on a positive note, with a segment on
Crystal Dynamics' expert reboot of the Tomb Raider franchise. Though reviewer
Matt Miller (read his review here) is traveling and unable to be a part of the show, host Matt Helgeson taps the brains of Andy Reiner and Ben Reeves, both of whom
have spent a lot of time with this excellent new title that takes the Tomb
Raider in new directions.
Next up is a long discussion of Maxis' SimCity. For reasons
we outline in the podcast, Joe Juba has not submitted a review of the game yet
and we explain why. The game's online functionality has been severely
compromised at launch, resulting in a lot of backlash against EA and Maxis.
Tune into hear Matt, Joe, and Adam Biessener break down the controversy.
