We’ve been gone horribly long and apparently have been bottling up a lot of talk. Rachelle, Christian and Michael talk Star Wars: The Old Republic and combat Christian on why it doesn’t grab him. Rachelle apparently has no clue how to play Mario 3D Land. Mike hates on Mario Kart 7 and Rachelle tries to save the day again. Instead of being all full of hate though Mike gushes a bit on Pushmo. The group talks about the recent 3DS updates. Recommendations this week cover Sherlock (Series 2) and Portlandia. Then the group delves into the iOS ripoff of Mario Kart and a brief 2012 outlook including some upcoming games (Xenoblade, Rhythm Heaven, Resident Evil Revelations and more) and then discuss some 2012 predictions for the Vita and the Wii U.
On the new Enter Your Initials: Mike starts things off with a little more love on Super Mario 3D Land. The group discusses the upcoming 3DS updates. Rachelle brings up Nintendo Video’s Dinosaur Office. Breaking Bad is yet again awesome. Michael brings up a Colbert chat about one of his interviews. There is a lot of love for the new Muppet movie. Rounding things out there is discussion on new television viewing options, Skyrim’s perfect Famitsu score, South Park, Max Payne 3 and more!
Yeah, this podcast is a little late this week. There was a bit of a planning problem with Thanksgiving in the mix so we decided to record an epic podcast to tide you over until after the holiday. We dive into a ton of new releases this week including Super Mario 3D Land and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. Call of Duty fatigue is discussed with predictions about where it is going sales wise. Dinosaurs are back with Telltale’s Jurassic Park and Mike loves it. He also gets prodded into sharing his thoughts on Skyward Sword while the group hasn’t even broken the shrink wrap yet. Christian and Michael compare notes on Skyrim. Christian shares his thoughts on his now finished Arkham City. Michael and Christian get all nerdy about the two recent Fallout games. The rest of the group finally jumps on the Breaking Bad bandwagon and discuss things like “Bathtub” and “Bike Lock”. Then Mike nearly wraps it up with love for the movie Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva before shenanigans start to take over.
Where the hell is Christian? Drunk as you might have guessed. The crew is running a man down this week but the show is still running hot. Mike finished up Uncharted 3 this week as well so him and Michael share their thoughts on the series. Michael gets sucked into the DC Universe. Conrad discovers that he does have some love inside him for Battlefield 3. Rachelle plays something Japanese (surprise!!!!) Then we have books, news, Rachelle winning and more this week!
Welcome to another week of Enter Your Initials! We start off with a little Uncharted 3 talk – Michael has a few complaints to lodge against it. Christian is STILL playing Gears of War 3 and he talks a bit about the campaign as he just finished it up. The group shares their thoughts on DLC and the idea of an season pass for a game. Mike talks about the new Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure, which essentially has DLC that is already on the disk. Following that up Rachelle reveals she finally has her hands on Harvest Moon for the 3DS. Batman returns to the podcast again this week. Christian puts a ban on Skyward Sword discussions. Rachelle and Michael share more Dr. Who love. Conrad hates on an iPhone app. Michael talks about the Binding of Isaac. Then we talk recent news including World of Warcraft and Rockstar games.
This week on Enter Your Initials: Christian starts us up by sharing his newfound love for Gears of War 3, Michael and Conrad have been partaking in some Battlefield 3, Rachelle is absolutely addicted to Professor Layton and the Last Spector (much more specifically London Life), and Mike shares his late love for Uncharted 2. Then we bust into talking about the massive amount of games coming out in November and some incite into review score perspective. Moving on there are recommendations starting with Dr. Who and the Steve Jobs biography. And if that isn’t enough there is talk about Apple televisions, Netflix then the show is rounded out with another bout of 3DS vs. Vita. FIGHT!
Welcome back! This week Mike and Rachelle dive into Professor Layton and the Last Spector. The group jumps into 3DS and Vita discussions. Michael and Christian share their thoughts on Batman Arkham City. Conrad recommends the book Snow Crash. New York Comic Con stories get shared and Mass Effect gets brought up.
