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.
On this episode of the Com-cast, Simon and Alex welcome on Andrew Alliance, founder of The Show Radio gaming site and podcast, to read and discuss listener feedback, and then move to tackle another complex topic submitted by Whiplash... on revisiting the Mass Effect 3 ending, and where Mass Effect 4 might go.
As we return from an unintentional break we face the ridiculous amount of comment backup we have caused, we talk about what Valve's Big Picture Mode means for the future of the service, and wish THQ a fond farewell.
Manscaping, Dead Space 3, and Aliens: Colonial Marines.
Finally our choices for Games of the Year are revealed, and we jump into a possible future hybrid of traditional games with in-game purchases and separately sold components.
Christmas, FTL, Halo 4 and Wal Mart.
The Gameinsight crew welcomes back John Fenix to the podcast and also Ben Mazzara, as all four finish up discussion of video game storytelling and move on to nominations for the best games and DLC of the year, and a special segment looking forward to the most anticipated games of 2013.
Whiplash is welcomed on the podcast this week as he responds to John's arguments and gets some substantial support for his own position.
WiiU, Black Ops 2, Far Cry 3 and Curiosity
This time on the podcast, the duo welcome back John Tarr for his second appearance as they take on a gargantuan listener email about storytelling in video games and FFXIII, as well as talking about the model for AAA titles moving forward.
