Happy hump day, Feed faithful! Fancy meeting you here. Well, since you're here, I might as well give you your weekly dose of Feedback. You're welcome! On this episode, Adam Sessler is joined in studio by none other than Stephen “Hooters” Johnson, Nikole “Not Enough Pokemon in This FPS” Zivalich, and Kevin “Sniffles” Kelly.
In addition to following all of the biggest news of the day, the crew spent the past week checking out two of the year’s most anticipated shooters, Homefront and Crysis 2, both of which paint similarly grim pictures of America under siege from foreign attack, but only one of which has inspired Stephen Johnson’s new catchphrase, “Enemies in the Hooters!” Check out the full show to see which game is to blame:
- The devastating earthquake and tsunami that recently hit Japan will have far reaching implications on all manner of life in the region and around the world. The disaster has even impacted Japan’s gaming industry, and led to a number of delays and cancelations. Could more be on the way?
- Just when you thought we were done talking about the cool stuff we saw at PAX East 2011, Nikole and Kevin touch on some of the standout titles that they still wake up in the middle of night thinking about.
- In honor of Crysis 2, the group identifies their favorite in-game super suits. Question: Which Feedback panelist says, “Who’s your Big Daddy now?” on this week’s episode? The winner gets…the answer right.
- And finally, the Feedback gang discusses great narrative-driven FPS’s and the value of focusing on story as opposed to trying to capitalize on multiplayer trends simply for the sake of it.
