First up, Richard, Ludwig and Ben are starting the show with game impressions. Ben hits Wreckateer, and Richard checks back in with The Secret World. Then it's on to Steam sales and how they may affect playing and buying habits – have you heard buying Steam games on sale is a great way to invest in your retirement? Dead Space 3 impressions round out the first segment.
In the middle, Richard checks in with Jess and Mike Schramm about their experience at Comic-Con 2012. In news, it's a whole lot of industry talk as Alexander, Ben, JC, and Mike Suszek touch on layoffs hitting Microsoft, Capcom, THQ, and Warner Bros. Also, Dance Central 3 seems to have a stellar lineup of tracks, Nintendo's financials tell a few tales, and EA deals with football-related litigation.
Be sure to check after the break to see how you can snag yourself a free copy of Wreckateer on XBLA.
