This week we start off with a discussion about God of War 3 and Nathan reveals his purchase of Pokemon HeartGold. From there we get into a debate about whether or not Just Cause 2 is any good and Jon continues to play Uncharted.....1. We finish off our played games with a discussion about Microsoft's Game Room and run down the games we all bought on launch.
The sixth episode of The Tester is out and we run down what happened and how we felt about it. Nintendo announces its next handheld game platform and we share our feelings on the past and future of the PSP. Microsoft announces that the 360 will support USB drives and briefly mention Game Crush.
This week we run down Pokemon SoulSilver and HeartGold as Sean and Jon enjoy it far beyond Nathan's comprehension. We also touch base on Final Fantasy XIII and discuss our opinions on God of War 3. Nathan brings up his time with the new Perfect Dark for the Xbox Live Arcade along with his and Sean's choice to play NBA 2K6. Region distribution for Pokemon is discussed along with the fifth episode of Sony's The Tester. DJ Hero continues to put out mediocre track packs and Street Fighter creator, Yoshinori Ono, announces that he'd like to work on a Darkstalkers game.
This week Sean brings up his time with Final Fantasy XIII and we discuss our opinions of the games and whether we will play more or not. Nathan shares his time with Battlefield Bad Company 2 and Battlefield 1943, and continues to love Deadly Premonition (you should buy it). Jon claims to have finished with Resident Evil 5 once and for all and wraps up Heavy Rain.
The Tester episode four is released and Sean and Nathan continue to love it as Jon once again chooses to never take part in it. We then move into the beginning of the Game Developer's Conference and Sony's PlayStation Move controller. Assassin's Creed 2's DRM continues to be great and we run through the top ten selling games of February.
