Super Joystiq Podcast 117: The Evil Within, Far Cry 4, Bayonetta 2  

Filed under: Podcasts

This week's Super Joystiq Podcast is the exaggerated things you love about all other podcasts.

Bayonetta 2 proved to be one of the best games of the year so far, and there is plenty more to say about it. This week, Ludwig, Susan, Anthony, and Earnest talk the sexuality of Bayonetta, and why The Evil Within isn't as successful as we would have hoped. Ludwig also checks in with stories of his time with Far Cry 4-- and surprise, surprise, it sounds amazing. Susan touches on The Devil's Attorney, and the whole big show closes on a showstopper, the board game Clue.

Filed under: Podcasts

This week's Super Joystiq Podcast is boycotting breakfast unless it is 1080p, 60fps.

A minor reprieve is in order after a few weeks of door-busting releases, so thanks Driveclub for making that possible. *zing.* Ludwig, Jess, Mike, and Earnest check-in this week to talk about Bayonetta 2, FIFA 15, the Pokemon card game on iPad, and the surprising shift toward licensed games bringing the heat.

Filed under: Podcasts

This week's Super Joystiq Podcast is has submitted its application for replacement Cryptarch in the Tower.

It's officially big release season, and it's starting strong. Ludwig, Susan, Richard, and Alexander talk three huge releases. Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is good-- like really, really good, and Alexander walks us through just why it's a 5-star game. Richard checks in with some thoughts on Super Smash Bros. 3DS, and the group comes together in mourning for Destiny's loot cave. It's a loss that will make all of our lives just a little more grind-y.

Super Joystiq Podcast 113: Hyrule Warriors, The Master Chief Collection, Murasaki Baby, Theatrhythm  

Filed under: Podcasts

This week's Super Joystiq Podcast is considering getting butt injections.

There is no doubt now, it's big releases season. Join Ludwig, Jess, Anthony, Earnest, and Danny as the cover a wide range of new big and smaller releases. Final Fantasy talk kicks-ff the show with thoughts on Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call and the brand-spankin'-new, road-trippin' Final Fantasy XV trailer out of the Tokyo Game Show. Also on the show, two small releases you might have heard of, Halo: The Master Chief Collection and Hyrule Warriors. A smaller game also gets its due time with discussion of the superbly executed Murasaki Baby for PS Vita.

Prepare yourself for next week's show as well, because the release train keeps on rolling with Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor, D4, and Wasteland 2!

Destiny roundtable with Joystiq on Google and Twitch, plus an Xbox One stream  

Filed under: Podcasts


Destiny makes bold claims right in the title. Bungie named its game after inevitability! While only time will tell if the studio's bold experiment in blending its signature shooter fundamentals with a decade of MMO evolution has produced a classic, Destiny is certainly unavoidable in the gaming world this week. After pouring hours into the game since the servers went live on Monday morning, the Joystiq team is ready to reflect on the game's first days. How does Destiny feel on last gen consoles? What's it like to review a game like this? Are there any hiccups in service? We'll cover it all.

The staff will host a Google Hangout starting at 2:30PM EST. Want to chat with the crew? Follow along on Google Plus, right here in this post, or at Joystiq.com/Twitch.

Following the roundtable, Joystiq's Jess Conditt will be streaming the Xbox One version of Destiny.

Also, if you'd like to get your hands on an absolutely free copy of Destiny, we're giving some of those away right now! [Images: Activision/Bungie]

Super Joystiq Podcast Special: Gamescom 2014 Day 2  

Filed under: Podcasts

An American McGee/Alice joke almost destroyed this one, but the crew proved that they are true heroes and powered through.

It's day two Gamescom 2014, and things don't get much bigger and crazier than this outside of E3. Microsoft and Sony both held their big press conferences, and there were a serious amount of announcements. Here's a taste: Tomb Raider is an Xbox One exclusive, Sony has sold 10 million PS4s, and PlayStation has a number of fresh-looking new games on the way. Do yourself a favor and jump past the break for a more complete list of links, and check in on the full PlayStation and Xbox press conference round-ups.
