Episode 8: 2011 In Review – The TGOJ Holiday Special

Posted in Podcast Episodes with tags , , , , , , , , , on December 23, 2011 by Josh

Nothing says 'Happy Holidays' like a huge Pac Man Christmas Tree.

The holidays are just around the corner and we have been bombarded with some great games within the last couple months. The year started off pretty bad, but we ended up with more great games this year than anyone had time and money to spend on them. Since the three of us here at TGOJ have been trying to find time for all the gaming action 2011 has offered us across multiple platforms, we haven’t had time to do our Wolfenstein homework once again. In this episode we walk you through all the great games we have enjoyed over the year, let you know what we thought was worth your time and money, and provide you our standard rants and rambling.  This episode is heavily loaded with Xbox 360 games since that is the system of choice here at TGOJ, but we didn’t leave other gaming platforms completely out. Most of these games are cross platform anyways so keep that in mind if you search for any of the games we mention. We hope you enjoy this episode and we will talk at you all next year with what we hope will be some more entertaining content. Happy Holidays and Happy New Year everyone and thank you again for listening to and reading our content!

Enjoy the music clips we pulled from Tetris, Shadowgate, Faxanadu, Mega Man 2 and Contra in this episdoe.  As always, thank you Horse the band for allowing us to use their song “Birdo” as our TGOJ theme song.

It’s also not retro by any means. So why do I care? Follow me after the jump to read why I think this game, and its developer, need some attention. Read more »
