With the Interactive Achievement Awards behind us, the gang gets in their opinions on some of the finalists and the nominees they were put up against. Along with the release of the pilot episode of Sony's The Tester coming out, we share our thoughts on the premiere and what we would like to see come from it. We also talk about The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom, Bioshock 2 and Jon chooses to break out his old Game Gear for some Ren and Stimpy fun. Wrapping up the show sees us discuss Ubisoft's choice to restrict the use of their games (such as Assassin's Creed 2) and as always we read your questions on the air.
A brief update: The Top Down Perspective can be downloaded directly from the iTunes store, just search us up and begin subscribing.
This week we get in deep about the new Heavy Rain demo, Nathan's opinion of Dante's Inferno and Jon's list of old GameBoy games that (for some reason) he is running through. Also, we wrap up any unfinished business regarding No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle and Jon beats, once again, another game while we chat - this time Contra.
On the news side we discuss Microsoft's X10 event. This brings up our opinions on everything from the Xbox Live Game Room to the new Perfect Dark XBLA. Dead Rising Case Zero is also discussed along with Dead Rising 2 being talked about at length.
This week's episode has taken some of the feedback from the first episode to heart and is a little more structured. A smaller file, shorter length (At 1 hour 10 minutes instead of 2 hours) and just a little bit more focused (but only a bit). We're also trying out a new sound setup and meeting in person to do these, so bear with us.
This week's episode deals with the closing of the Xbox Live servers for original Xbox games, last year's top selling XBLA games and overall games, along with Project Needlemouse/Sonic the Hedgehog 4 and the new reality show on the PSN, The Tester.
