Talkabouts



I've been playing Diablo 3 so hard, my clicking finger needs to be rebuilt from the ground up -- it's that addictive. The great Leah Jackson has been playing it as well, and now that everyone has had a week to really run Diablo 3 through its paces, we wanted to talk about it in a safe, non-judgmental way.

Check out the talkabout video below, where Diablo 3 is raked over the proverbial coals.

With two huge eSports events happening this weekend: EVO 2011 and MLG Anaheim (both of which are being live streamed on G4TV.com) we wanted to get together with some of the major representatives from the eSports community and have a Talkabout on the state of competitive gaming right now. On the panel we had Sundance DiGiovanni, CEO and Co-Founder of Major League Gaming, JP McDaniel, a professional StarCraft 2 commentator, and Tom "Tsquared" Taylor, a professional Halo: Reach player. Our two main topics focus on the growth of competitive gaming and why a few games in particular make for great eSports.

In this edition of Talkabout, Stephen Johnson and Jake Gaskill put on their always fashionable speculation hats to discuss the newly confirmed Nintendo console that will be playable at E3 this year. Will the console be able to recapture the hardcore gamer market, or will Nintendo once again target a more family friendly demographic?

Where do you think Nintendo is heading with this console that is supposedly more powerful than the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360? Let us know.




Our entire office has been playing Dead Space 2 since it launched, walking the halls of G4 and silently calculating how to best cut the limbs off our office ferns, Star Wars Maquettes and co-workers. In the Talkabout video below, Kevin Kelly and Michael Leffler takes a look at Visceral Games' survival horror title, so check it out... unless you're too scared to watch.

In the contentious Talkabout video you see embed below, Kevin "Wrong Again!" Kelly and Stephen "Great Genius" Johnson discuss Gran Turismo 5.

The PlayStation 3 racing game seems to really be splitting people into Love It and Hate It camps, with everyone expressing very strong opinions on the matter. Add your own opinion in the comment section, if you feel like it.

If your Wii has been gathering dust lately, it's time to grab a cloth and get cleanin'. Disney Epic Mickey is in stores now... but is it really worth it? In the video below, Matt Keil and Adam Sessler discuss the game, and give their opinions on its strengths and weaknesses.

Talkabouts: Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood »


Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood...Is it a full Assassin's Creed game, or simply Assassin's Creed 2.5? Do the new features make this follow-up feel like a substantial offering in the Assassin's Creed franchise? Is Ezio really worth following for two entire games? Moreso than simply developing a straight-up third title to cap off the trilogy?

Our very own Jake Gaskill -- who recently reviewed the game -- teams up with Adam Sessler to discuss the merits of returning to the Italian countryside in order to to continue the series' increasingly perplexing story. From story to gameplay to the brand new assassin management system, we go in-depth with the title to determine whether it deserves to live, or simply should get a merciful death. Check out this Talkabouts and follow along!

Microsoft Kinect, Xbox Kinect, Kinect Xbox, it doesn't matter what you call it, Kinect is here, and with the launch just behind us, Abbie Heppe and Dana Vinson review the controller free device to tell us if Microsoft's new motion sensor is worth buying, which games are worth moving for, and whether or not this new technology works as intended.

In short, it's a Kinect fiesta on this Talkabout, and you're all invited. You don't even need to bring a controller, just your lovely selves...and some dip. We're short on dip.

It's no secret that we had some issues with the original Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. There's was a great story buried underneath wonky controls, problematic designs, and rushed development. Some of the objectives listed just said "Default Text," for pete's sake! Even Yoda would have been puzzled by that one.

But, we were assured (not by the Force, sadly) that these issues were addressed in the sequel. Were they? Find out as Sith Lord Matt Keil and Jedi Youngling Mike Leffler talk about Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II
