The Last Podcast Episode 31

This week we had a couple of stories that just had us saying wow. The weeks news was a major downer as Sony’s and Nintendo’s financials look like a term paper I once got back in my freshman year of college… full of read ink. That to go along with a couple in Asia selling their kids for gaming money and the possible annihilation of the Mason family had us in an uninspired mood. We do manage to kick things into high gear as Kirby breaks down his experience with Catherine so far, while Wolf finishes off Back to the Future: The Game. The crew discusses their favorite final bosses and as a bonus brush the subject of video game price points. You know that new sound you lookin’ for, well listen to this!

The Last Podcast Episode 24

TLP is in the house one last time before we go on a two week break, but before that we break down the week that was in Episode 24. This week’s big shock is that Sony isn’t our lead-in! That honor goes to Rockstar and Take-Two for L.A. Noire and Grand Theft Auto related news. We also talk Sonic on the cover of Nintendo Power, Sony’s ongoing public relations issues and them trying to rehabilitate that image in The Weekend Review. While Wolf praises L.A. Noire, again, Kirby actually likes God of War: Ghost of Sparta in What We’re Playing. This week’s Discussion focuses on reviews and the people who use them (gamers). It’s a 10/10, 5-star episode. Just listen for yourself. The Last Podcast episode 24! So good we’ll Enshrine It!
