Jon returns from his incredible weekend at PAX East. We discuss the plane trip, air port mayhem and, of course, what he did at the show. Sean brings up his final moments with Tropical Freeze, The Wolf Among Us 3, Rusty's Real Deal Baseball and more InFamous Second Son.
Obviously we talk about the Super Smash Bros. Nintendo Direct last week, we also mention a bunch of release dates that PAX East brought forth.
Nathan can't join us this week unfortunately. We start off by discussing PAX East and Jon's upcoming trip there. He finishes up Yoshi's New Island and gives Minecraft a good try. Sean wraps up The Azran Legacy, continues with Tropical Freeze and starts InFamous Second Son.
As for news, Amazon announces and releases the Fire TV and Amy Hennig now works for EA again.

IF YOU HAVEN'T PLAYED 999 OR HAVE ANY INTEREST IN THIS GAME THEN DO NOT LISTEN TO THIS EPISODE!

Sean is back and has FINALLY conquered Bravely Default. Jon, meanwhile, has become trapped in an endless time loop, playing it for all eternity. Will he escape? Tune in next week to find out.
Sean also checked out Half Brick's latest, Bear vs Art and has begun playing the new entry in the Professor Layton series. And something called Oqonie? Sounds weird. Jon also began playing the latest Donkey Kong Country while Nathan played much of Remember Me in a single sitting, dabbled with Jack Lumber (which used to have the tagline "Trees Suck") and that game Threes? Well, its on Android so he acknowledges that he can't stop playing it compulsively (the new Tiny Tower maybe?)
News mostly consists of a couple game release announcements, but the new initiative by Amazon to stream games to your home is probably the most noteworthy story. All that and a pretty hefty barrel of questions on this weeks Top Down Perspective!
Review us on iTunes if you'd so like and feel free to ask us some questions next week. Thanks for listening.
Just Jon and Nathan (JoNathan) this week as Sean takes to the skies to visit his homeland.
Jon talks some Bravely Default and his favoritest game of yesteryear, Payday 2. Nathan tries to compare the adventure games of the east versus those of the west, centering on Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward and the latest episode of Telltale's Walking Dead, "A House Divided".
Over in news, Batman is back (already?), Jack "Not as tough as Reggie" Tretton steps down from CEO of SCEA, we know exactly when Watch_Dogs is coming out and Amy Hennig of Uncharted fame leaves Naughty Dog rather abruptly. And, of course, we talk at length about Shaquille O'Neal's latest venture in the world of video-games over at Indigogo.
All that and your questions on this, the latest episode of Top Down Perspective. Review us on iTunes. If you'd like. You don't have to. But it would be cool.
This week Jon plugs in an Xbox One and continues to work through Bravely Default (along with Sean). We also discuss Beat Blasters 3 and Nathan plays through the latest Last of Us DLC.
News is real interesting with the announcement of a Sega vs. Nintendo movie/book in the works, the Xbox One is finally getting Twitch integration in a few weeks and Waluigi is only going to be an assist trophy.
