The holidays come early this year, as both The Game Awards and PlayStation Experience feature a ton of announcements and trailers. Kaz, Tom, Mike and Justin weigh in on Zelda, No Man’s Sky, Yakuza 5‘s surprise localization and more. They also explore the current amiibo frenzy and the overwhelming cuteness of Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker.
Does the follow up to Kaz’s #1 game of 2012 have the potential to be 2014’s?
Are the wiles of the Shovel Knight enough to woo Kaz’s frozen heart?
Is some serious eye candy enough to make Second Son the favored son?
So the guys survived Black Friday, but not everyone came out unscathed. This week, the show kicks off with a shocking revelation from new Wii U owner McFadden, with minor lunacy from Virtual Boy owner Justin on the side. Meanwhile, Kaz stalks orcs (and “uruks”) in Shadow of Mordor, Tom plays the Game of Thrones and Tony dodges traffic on the Crossy Road.
Ghost inbound! This week, the Pack sentences you to an interview with show alum and Freedom Wars producer Nicolo “Nickydino” Accordino. He’s here to talk about the localization and world building of this future Vita cult classic. Also, Hulk Hogan. Afterwards, Kaz makes it through Fantasy Life‘s tutorial, Tom pals around with Joe Pesci in Bayonetta 2, Justin defends Mario Kart 8‘s Ice Ice Outpost, Neil is probably still playing Destiny, and McFadden takes everyone to the movies!
No matches found this week! The rough release of The Master Chief Collection, and to a lesser extent Assassin Creed: Unity‘s performance woes, has the Pack talking about botched launches and what we can reasonably expect from our games on Day One. Afterwards, Kaz talks about Halo‘s menus, Tom carves through poo to find The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth‘s hidden treasure, Tony and Neil embark on The Sailor’s Dream, and Justin takes Toejam & Earl online.
