GI Show 116: Ouya Kickstarter, NCAA 13, The Secret World

by Matt Helgeson on Jul 12, 2012 at 02:00 PM

We discuss the new Ouya Android console, which has already raised over 4 million in Kickstarter pledges, plus two new releases. The show kicks (no pun intended) off with the Kickstarter sensation Ouya -- a console that promises to upend the traditional console market with an open-source, free-to-play system priced at $99. While it has grassroots support online, is this an idea that has legs? Host Matt Helgeson is joined by Andy Reiner and Matt Miller to discuss. In the second segment, Matt Kato swings by to talk about his review for NCAA Football 13, the latest in EA's longrunning sports franchise. Finally, Matt Miller returns to talk about The Secret World, a new MMO that promises something different from the usual sci-fi and fantasy tropes.
