Xav, Ludwig, and JC open the show with thoughts on Darksiders 2, Sleeping Dogs, Retro/Grade and the upcoming free-to-play shooter, Dust 514. There's also a discussion on how narrative and gameplay sometimes don't mesh. In Talk Back, the team discusses games they love to return to and can't bring themselves to replay, game cancellations, the best weapons in gaming, and more.
In the second segment, we welcome Joystiq's newest staffer: Sinan Kubba.
To wrap it up, the news crew of Alexander, Richard, Ben, and Mike Schramm discuss the ongoing OnLive situation, news from the world of League of Legends, Nintendo Power closing, and more.
