"The Last One" is where I take a look at the previous installment of a upcoming game. Today I take at look at the first Poker Night. Poker Night 2 comes out April 26, 2013 for PC, MAC, Xbox 360, and PS3.
I expected Sacred Citadel to be another mediocre beat-’em-up, but Southend Interactive (mostly) calls my bluff. A solid evening of gathering loot and tenderizing orcs awaits (provided two friends tag along).
This month, Max Gruber (Whiplash) takes a very extensive look at the fundamental dichotomy between Western-style RPGs and Japanese RPGs. He identifies possible causes for the current malaise in JRPGs, as well as possible methods of adopting WRPG mechanics to catch up while maintaining the core aspects that make JRPGs unique.
This week's Short-Takes happen to coincide with Gameinsight's 1st anniversary, and a full panel is out to discuss EA's faltering entrance into social gaming, Bethesda using Vine to tease us about a new game, Wii U sales not where Nintendo wants them to be, and Nintendo announcing Virtual Console to try and spur some growth.
After another long hiatus (this time actually warranted), Alex and Simon are back to commemorate the 1st anniversary of Gameinsight! They welcome on John Tarr as a guest, and discuss how far their sites and the industry have come in the past year, and provide some thoughts on what the landscape might look like a year from now.
