New game announcements and the E3 rumor mill provide a lot of fodder for news today. Ben digs the confirmation of an XCOM sequel, the US release of Dragon Quest: Heroes piques Jared’s interest, and Alex talks about dressing her friends in speedos. The new Steam refund policy is also a hot topic of discussion.
This week’s Top 3 List leads to some reminiscing about Soul Calibur and a story about what happens when publishers aren’t cool with beating up girls in video games. The team then catches up on their recent gaming excursions in What You Been Playin’ Bro?, followed by yet another edition of The Worst Thing That Happened To Us This Week.
