    Weekly Roundup Episode 13 (Please don’t be unlucky!)

    Our special guest is back, yay! But Trina’s not with us, boo. She’s off doing Important Things, so I guess we can give her a pass. This week, it’s all about retro games, Supreme Court rulings, and unsavory working conditions. Well, that and some more stuff. (Because remember, there’s always more.) We hope you enjoy this week’s hilarity! Listen in the player below, or find us on iTunes. Relevant links are below the player. The Supreme Court is on our side, yay! (Also, graham crackers.) Leland Yee just won’t give up. (Dude, give up. Capcom 3DS titles are apparently single-play only. (Notice we didn’t say single-player.) Nintendo insists on breaking our hearts. (And keeping the thing they need in North America out of North America.) Team Bondi insists on breaking its employees. (This is why you might not actually want to be a game developer.) As always, we encourage you

    Call of Duty XP is the full experience for anyone who loves ‘Call of Duty’

    Activision announced yesterday that Call of Duty XP 2011, a “celebration” of all things CoD, will take place this Labor Day weekend in Los Angeles. And hey, no children are allowed, so you can have adults screaming obscenities and slurs at you, instead! Yay! It’ll probably be a nice change of pace. On hand will be will be demos for Modern Warfare 3, a full look at Call of Duty Elite (you know, that thing you don’t want to pay for) and even a $1 million Call of Duty tournament sponsored by Activision and Xbox 360. For the latter, you can qualify before the tournament or at a select on-site qualification. If you just want to watch, that will be available on TV — probably for a price, much like BlizzCon. More activities include: Tournaments and prizes for the hardcore and casual fan alike Discussion panels and Q&A with Call

    Konami reveals its plans for more ‘Silent Hill’ (and some old ‘Silent Hill,’ too)

    Konami used E3 to show off their HD collection for some of their older Silent Hill classics as well as the new Silent Hill Downpour for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 and Silent Hill: Book of Memories for PlayStation Vita. At E3, Konami showed off the series’ first 3D entry — Downpour. During the game, you’ll play a convict named Murphy Pendleton, whose delivery to jail is more than a little bit interrupted by a crash of some sort. He wanders into Silent Hill, and as we know (but he doesn’t), that is generally not a good idea. Also, Korn is recording a song for the soundtrack. I guess it’s good to hear that they’re still sort of making music. The Silent Hill HD Collection for PS3 will bring the second and third games in the series into a much prettier existence, at the very least, with updated graphics, new

    E3 First Look: Star Trek

    E3 was full of surprises and every time I think back about it I keep saying to myself, “Oh man! Remember that one thing?” and it is always something new that I just didn’t have time to process at the time.  Paramount was one of those that truly stood out.  Perhaps it was the fact that they didn’t have a booth or that I had to go to their own room to find them. Maybe it was the fact that the two games I saw were games I was not aware that they had brought to the expo and they were going to look so good! Some of you are nervous about this title, mostly because we have seen other Star Trek games that have come and gone. Some good, some bad, some terrible and some that seemed like the developers never watched an episode of Star Trek in their

    Playdead’s ‘Limbo’ soon to cast its shadow on PlayStation 3 and PC

    Once upon a time, Limbo was only for Xbox 360, and it sold quite well on Xbox LIVE Arcade. That reign is over, though. Whatever exclusivity deal once existed has now come to an end…or at least it will be by the time Limbo sees release on the PlayStation 3 and PC. Developer Playdead isn’t letting anyone else handle this, either. They’re doing all of the work themselves…while also working on a new IP. No release date as of yet, but co-founder Dino Patti did tell Joystiq that it was coming “very soon.”

    Review: Order & Chaos Online (iOS)

    Rating: 9+ Frequent/Intense cartoon or fantasy violence Platform: iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad Publisher: Gameloft Genre: MMORPG Release Date: April 29. 2011 BUY Game Loft has produced and successfully released it’s first MMO. Order and Chaos has been called a World of Warcraft knock-off. But in playing Order and Chaos, I feel like I have been playing Guild Wars pre-Searing. When I think of elves that have the long floppy ears, and characters with tree trunk shaped feet then I think of WoW. The human character designs only slightly resemble those good old shoeless, ugly, WoW avatars that you had come to love. Right now for $6.99 at the Apple App store, you can play Order and Chaos on any iOS device for three months. It is the usual fare character choices: human, elf, ogre, and undead. There are professions to choose from such as warrior, mage, monk (cleric) and
