Game Front Podcast #9: PS4 Failures, BlizzCon, Burial at Sea
In honor of Playstation 4 launch day (despite having recorded the podcast the day before), we kick off this week’s podcast talking about some of the more interesting elements of the game’s prelaunch — namely, the reports of failures that were occurring in the few days before launch. Is it time to panic? Probably not, we think — but we might want to keep an eye out for this generation’s Red Ring of Death.
We also run down what Leif Johnson saw at BlizzCon 2013 last weekend, which included hands-on time with Diablo 3 on Playstation 4 and its Reaper of Souls expansion, World of Warcraft’s Warlord’s of Draenor expansion, the World of Warcraft movie, and Heroes of the Storm.
This week also saw the release of the BioShock Infinite story DLC, Burial at Sea, which even has our BI superfan Mitchell Saltzman a bit disappointed.
Finally, we think about Call of Duty: Ghosts — which seems to be the worst-reviewed Call of Duty game in the modern era. Does that even matter when a game sinks a billion in sales on the first day alone?
Drop a comment about anything you might want to hear us talk about next week — and let us know if you want to see Mitchell play through Half-Life 2, despite his various protestations.
