Episode 9: Here Comes 2012

Posted in Podcast Episodes with tags , , , , , , , , on February 16, 2012 by Josh

Welcome to 2012, where quality control trumps all things.

The new year is here, and we already have had a great start with such titles as Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning and Resident Evil: Revelaitons (typo intended…right Capcom?). In this episode we take a look at our backlog from 2011 and some of the games we’ve finally caught up on, and also discuss what games are coming up in the 2012 gaming year. To our surprise, we realized during the recording of this episode that there are actually a bunch of video games to look forward to this year.

Enjoy the music clips we pulled from Gradius and Contra in this episode. As always, thank you Horse the band for allowing us to use their song “Birdo” as our TGOJ theme song.

I was introduced to this game just a few days ago by Mike…and within two hours, I finished this game. Within those two hours, DLC Quest won me over. DLC Quest isn’t a long or complex and deep game. 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 »
