Top Down Perspective 12/12/14

Not a lot going on this week due to the holidays coming up. Sean is taking care of some stuff before leaving for Canada for a couple weeks so it's up to Jon and Paul to hold the fort down. Jon plays Ultimate NES Remix and Paul dabbles here and there in World of Warcraft. 

In news, Ralph Baer has passed, Telltale is making a Minecraft game and a video game is pulled off Steam Greenlight.

Paul finally starts up Bayonetta 2 and is already loving it. Sean plays through Game of Thrones and a good chunk of Captain Toad while continuing with Crossy Road. Jon beats everyone by playing Picross DS, Crypt of the Necrodancer, Broforce and a good deal more.

The Game Awards happened as well as the PlayStation Experience and a good chunk of announcements came out of that.

From the far east Jon joins us, but never too far from video games. He's been playing more Picross DS, The Jackbox Party Pack and Binding of Isaac as well as Halo The Master Chief Collection with Sean (who also played through the first episode of Tales from the Borderlands). Paul hasn't been playing too much. 

A 20th anniversary PS4 is being released to a limited supply, we also talk about Steam's new broadcasting options, the next Assassin's Creed and Team YP.

It's Turkey Day for a minority of this podcast, not really - he didn't have any turkey. Paul has been playing Far Cry 4, This War of Mine and Dragon Age: Inquisition. Jon goes back to Picross DS, starts up Smash WiiU and checks out The Master Chief Collection. Sean finishes Bayonetta 2, starts working through Pokemon and is excited about Geometry Wars 3.

Paul continues with the new Binding of Isaac and Jon joins in and plays through all of Picross e5. Sean and Paul both play through A Bird Story. Then Sean plays some Luftrausers, Sunset Overdrive, Smash WiiU and Bayonetta. 

There isn't much news, G4 is officially gone.
