Super Joystiq Podcast Special: The Games of Gamescom 2013  

Filed under: Podcasts

Gamescom 2013 is done, but the crew makes a surprise return for one more Super Joystiq Podcast Special.

This is the one where we put the "games" in Gamescom (incidentally, we still don't know where the "com" comes from). Alexander, Richard, Jess, and Sinan take their final night in Germany to share impressions of all the games seen and played throughout the week. Set aside 2+ hours for the word on more than 25 games including: Dying Light, Killzone: Shadow Fall, Knack, The Witcher 3, Beyond: Two Souls, Hotline Miami 2, The Sims 4, Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, and many more.

And that really does conclude the Gamescom podcast explosion. Thanks for tuning in!

Filed under: Podcasts

This week's Super Joystiq Podcast is planning a whole line of water-filled designer furniture.

Any other year and we would still be in a gaming drought in the run-up to release season, but summer 2013 is overloaded with great smaller games. Ludwig helms the show this week, joined by Jordan, and new Managing Editor Susan Arendt in her first SJP appearance.

In games, the crew hits the upcoming releases and recent reviews, including Tales of Xillia, Skullgirls PC, Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, Pikmin 3, Dragon's Crown, and more. In the second half, it's on to con-talk, Everquest Next, QuakeCon, big John Carmack news, and takeaways from GaymerX.
