It's officially big release season. Ludwig, Xav, and Dave are here to discuss Battlefield 4, Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag, and Batman: Arkham Origins-- and the first two can't be discussed without covering the soon-to-hit next-generation versions. The guys also hit some of the bigger pieces of news from the week, and deliver some sage holiday buying advice in this week's mailbag.
The Joyswag streak continues this week as well with copies of Assassin's Creed 4, Batman: Arkham Origins, and a bundle of Skylanders figures up for grabs.
