It's a week of smaller releases, and we've played a number of them. Xav, Ludwig, Richard, and Jess convene to talk the long-in-development Monaco, Star Trek (The Video Game), Injustice iOS, Thomas Was Alone, and the currently in-funding Metroidvania hybrid A.N.N.E.
Nintendo capitalized the news last week, and the madness continues with word that the house of Mario will not be holding a traditional E3 press conference this year. Microsoft will though, a mere 19 days after an event set to be all about the next Xbox. Alexander, Dave, Mike Suszek, and Sinan also hit a slew of news including remaining THQ auction results, a leak regarding the next Call of Duty, and more.
Be sure to catch the games segment recorded live on YouTube every Thursday. This week's edition can be seen on the Joystiq YouTube page, and after the break.
